Helmut Lang Puffer Coat and SPANX Tight-End Tights

IMG_7202Helmut Lang jacket – 50% off in black (borrowed from Jennifer), vintage dress (last styled here), SPANX tights, Kelsi Dagger shoes (love these in black), vintage Yigal Azrouel belt

Last weekend a bunch of blogging bests and I got together for some food and picture taking at my apartment. Arguably one of the greatest days, what made the day also so much fun was seeing what these other stylish ladies were wearing. Jennifer busted out this gorgeous Helmut Lang puffer coat and I was immediately obsessed. Luckily we are almost the same size so I was able to borrow it for a few hours that day, and now have decided I need it in my life. P.S. i’m in luck, it’s on sale for over 50% off in black multi-color here.

I love the contrast of the edgy puffer coat with this very vintage floral dress. I am always a fan of mixing textures and look/feel and added to the “winter wonderland” style by sporting these grey shearling booties.

My SPANX tight-end tights are always on my legs these days, and helped to complete this outfit. Although, i’m now thinking I need a navy pair of tights for outfits just like this. I can’t recommend SPANX for tights/leggings enough. I have traditional semi-opaque pairs like the one shown here and quite a few pairs of their “leggings” which feel more like a thicker tight for colder days. Seriously a favorite.

Look at that high-low cut at the back of that jacket! So flattering.

For more styling of this gem, see it today on Jennifer as well! Also, thank you so much for your wide-calf boot recommendations on this post. I am checking out all of the companies mentioned and love the possibilities!

Holiday Outfit Idea: Piperlime Gilded Gold

LOFT trench (similar), Ark & Co dress via Piperlime, SPANX tights, Seychelles boots (this season’s), Chanel WOC

The next iteration in my Holiday Outfit series is probably my favorite to date. At heart I am a show-stopper kind of gal when it comes to clothing. The flashier the better, without sacrificing comfort. This outfit comprises all of my favorites: a comfortable yet flattering dress, flat boots, glam hair and red lipstick.

This Ark & Co dress was scored on major sale at Piperlime a few weeks back. I own nothing remotely similar in my closet and loved the printed gold departure from my norm.

I decided to pair it with my favorite flat boots to keep the outfit more casual. I’ve said before that heels are not my best friend, so for a Holiday party with family and my boyfriend, comfort matters to me.

The fit and flare of this dress coupled with the short sleeves make it so flattering, I absolutely love it!

On The Hunt: Extended Calf Heeled Boots

wide calf boots

 

Madewell “The Watchtower” (old, but does anyone know where I can find them, or anyone tried them?), UGG “Dreaux”

If you’re a ThePearShape veteran, you know i’ve been on the hunt for a pair of wide-calf heeled boots for ever. I have ordered and tried countless pairs, either not happy with the heel height, material or comfort. At this point, I am willing to take a look at a great brown/cognac pair or a sleek black option in a variation of heel heights. My only requirements are that they are leather and comfortable enough to walk in. I am definitely not in the business of teetering on these babies through work. Anyone have any specific recommendations? Anywhere i’m not looking? I have considered Duo but don’t want to go custom unless I have to. Help!

Holiday Outfit Idea: Black White and Gold

BCBG top (on sale!), Victoria’s Secret dress (here in fit and flare), Vintage Gucci belt (super similar), SPANX tights, Sole Society booties, Kenneth Cole handbag

This week’s Holiday Outfit idea is another departure from your standard red/green trend, and leaning more towards chic black and white with hints of gold. I love the slightly sexy feel of this outfit and think it would be perfect for a Holiday party with your girlfriends or a sexy dinner date with your man.

This dress is literally ancient and really only looks good now with tops layered over it. Lets just say the girls have grown since high school!

On another note, this Holiday series is making me realize that I need a new pair of black heeled booties. I really want a pair of black heeled boots that are at least somewhat walkable, but haven’t been able to find a wide calf option. Anyone have any recommendations?
