Mom’s old sweater, KTR Style skirt, J.Crew skirt and bracelet, SPANX tights, Nordstrom Rack earrings, MAC “asian flower” lipstick

I have been a longtime fan of KT and have read her blog religiously for a while. So when I saw her double bow skirt on a recent blog post, I knew it would be the perfect piece to wear for Holiday parties and festivities. I immediately emailed her asking if she could make one to my size, but asked if she could add a bit of length to the bottom to conceal my biggest problem area (my thighs). She kindly agreed and within a week I had this beautiful, custom made skirt at my door!



I have had the greatest time styling this skirt for multiple occasions.  I have worn it to Christmas parties and most recently, on Christmas morning to festively run around with my boyfriend picking up Chinese food and to the movies. I felt so girly and pretty in it and can’t wait to wear it for an upcoming New Years party with friends.  The length is exactly what I wanted and I don’t find that the bow or the pleats overwhelm my frame or make me look too wide. When paired with slimmer tops, as I have done in the past, this skirt is a true stunner piece. IMG_3016


On this Christmas morning I opted for comfy flat boots and my mom’s 1980’s vintage cashmere turtleneck that she so kindly gifted me a few years back. I added gold baubles and my newest obsession: MAC’s Asian Flower lipstick. For anyone with green or hazel eyes, buy this! It really brings out the color of our eyes beautifully.


I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!
