I want to be her

I am always looking for new style inspiration so when I stubbled upon this new website I knew I had to share it. I want to be her is a new site created by former creative editor of lucky magazine Andrea Linett. She features stylish women on the streets of New York and asks them about their style. Then she features an illustration or photo along with the girls fun styling tips. See her amazing blog here.

How to: Wear Gold this holiday season!

Holiday party season is upon us. I love the look of a gold dress for the holiday season it adds an element of glamour. Here are some tips for wearing gold this holiday season:

1. Choose the shade of gold wisely, Brassy, yellow gold can be harsh on some complexions.

2. Whether it's a sequin party dress, a soft satin shirt or a short, velvet mini, gold is definitely a statement. That means leave the head-to-toe gold at the Disco and pair with simple neutrals.

3. Accessories are another great way to get gold into your get up. Small clutches, earrings or groupings of bangles act as an accent to other patterns, colors and prints.

Holiday Gift List (men's edition)

Happy (feet on the ground) Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent the weekend getting all my holiday shopping out of the way (and did a little extra shopping for me of course.) I came across these images of anchors and absolutely feel in love with them. I spent this past summer working abroad in Milan and during my trip I got a tattoo of an anchor on my ankle. I love the meaning behind the anchor and its symbolism.

Wishing everyone a great week -- keeping your feet firmly placed on the ground.
