Kenneth Cole dress (old, more options below), Assorted vintage necklaces, Sam Edelman sandals

My office has a company holiday party in a few weeks and because i’m obsessive, i’ve been thinking about what dress I want to wear for quite some time. I’ve ordered and returned a few dresses (including the striped one from this post, a dud), and have been styling old options to try and pull something from my closet. This Kenneth Cole sheath dress has made it’s debut many times at office parties and more formal events, and is a decent option for our party.

Accessorizing it has always been a challenge. This time around I opted for layered necklaces and enjoyed the look.

If I were to wear this dress to my holiday party, I would have to slip on some SPANX just to create clean lines in the rear-end area.

A bold lip and big curls and this dress goes from basic to pretty darn glamorous if I do say so myself.

And a little pose to brighten your hump day!

As this dress is ancient, here are a few more navy jersey sheath dresses i’m loving. Stay tuned tomorrow for more dresses i’m considering ordering for this party.

Men’s Holiday Gift Guide 2013

Men's Gift Guide

Banana Republic Basic T // Timberland Scarf // Remote Control Helicopter // Everlane Weekend Bag // 49ers Jersey // Chassis Leather Flask // Jack Spade iPhone Case // Paul Smith Billfold

Shopping for Cesar is probably one of the hardest tasks. He doesn’t ever want anything and is very particular about what he likes and doesn’t like. As a result, i’ve often resorted to unique gifts (creative ice cube molds, flying airplanes and beautiful flasks). While this year we’ve agreed to only give each other stocking stuffer type presents, I asked Cesar to put together a list of things he’d love to receive. And who knows, some of these may just end up in his stocking this year!

I’d love to know, what do you get your guys for Christmas? I’m already compiling ideas for next year!

Review: Gap Flannel

Gap flannel (same shirt, different color) (40% off!), BDG jeans (on sale for $39), Banana Republic tank (40% off), Steve Madden boots (on sale for $129)

Guys, everything in this post is on sale. #ILoveCyberMonday. I wanted to do a quick review of an item that is definitely new to me: the flannel shirt. My best girlfriend was in town and her style couldn’t be more different than mine, but she pulled out this blue flannel shirt from Gap and I was intrigued. I kind of love the semi-grunge look and adore how these flannel shirts (from the men’s department) look unbuttoned with a basic outfit. I chose to pair this gorgeous cobalt one with all black jeans, tank and boots and dress it up with lipstick and a gorgeous necklace given to me as a gift.

The look of this shirt is definitely more casual but I think it will be so much fun paired with colored skinnies through the winter.

If you follow me on Instagram you saw this necklace. My girlfriend gave this to me for Hanukkah. It is a repurposed vintage Chanel button, set in a cold plate and put on a gold chain. She picked it up in an antique shop in Paris and I couldn’t love it more. Chanel jewelry for less!

Thanksgiving Recap 2013

IMG_7430-2

This Thanksgiving was absolutely wonderful. We decided to change it up this year and make it a friendsgiving, as my closest girlfriends from college were able to fly into San Francisco from DC for the holiday. My girlfriends and I spent the weekend shopping, eating, and touring around the city, with plenty of time for late-night chats snuggled on my bed. I wore these amazing jeans from James Jeans, my Tieks basically all weekend, and a loose-fitting button-down for the actual feast.

We had such a magical Thanksgiving (see details here!) but I must say, i’m so thrilled that it is December. It is one of my favorite months and I can’t wait to continue decorating my apartment, cooking warm meals and enjoying time with family and friends.
