Affordable Pearly Whites for the Holidays!


Sometimes when I can’t make up my mind of how I want to style my outfit in terms of jewelry, pearls are an easy go-to for instantly adding some much-needed glam & sophistication to an otherwise casual look. The holidays are the perfect time of year to consider pearls, & not just for jewelry must-haves.Take inspiration from the stylish likes of Angelina Jolie, Brie Larson, Lupita Nyong’o, Reese Witherspoon, Rihanna, & Zooey Deschanel, all donning pearls in earring, bracelet, or necklace form.

One of my favorite shopping spots, New York & Company, has some stylish & affordable pearly finds to wear for your next holiday party, date night, girls’ night out, or even sipping on some hot cocoa while wrapping presents.

However you choose to wear your pearls, own them. Pearls are timeless & go with any outfit.I love glamming up a casual Sunday with a pair of cluster studs, for example. The pearl resurgence that we saw last holiday season on clothing isn’t going away either. How do you like to wear pearls? Do you have a favorite pearl accessory that you love to wear?

Red Carpet Review: The Top 10 Style Darlings To Watch For 2015!


2014 was full of fantastic fashion moment from regular A-listers who made headlines by risking skin, donning matching separates, & keeping it classic with timeless elegance. However, it’s time to talk about the Style Darlings to watch out for in 2015, those who are sure to keep the fashion headlines buzzings, setting trends, & making a stylish name for themselves.

Nicola Peltz, Felicity Jones, Bella Thorne, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Emily Ratajkowski, Kiernan Shipka, Brie Larson, Suki Waterhouse, Ariel Winter, & Kendall Jenner.This includes, Transformers: Age of Extinction actress Nicola Peltz (in Prada), Golden Globe nominee for The Theory of Everything Felicity Jones (in Dior), teen star Bella Thorne (in LOFT), Beyond the Lights actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw (in Lanvin), “Blurred Lines” model-turned-Gone-Girl-actress Emily Ratajkowski (in Diane von Furstenberg), Mad Men ingénue Kiernan Shipka (at the Zac Posen Spring-Summer 2015 show), familiar face & Mark Wahlberg’s co-star in The Gambler Brie Larson (in Alexander McQueen), model & girlfriend of Bradley Cooper: Suki Waterhouse (in Burberry Prorsum), Modern Family actress Ariel Winter (in Mikael D.), & reality star-turned-catwalk pro Kendall Jenner (in Balmain).  

So let’s start….

Nicola Peltz in Balenciaga, Dolces & Gabbana & Stella McCartney, Dior, & Miu Miu.Nicola Peltz made waves on the red carpet while promoting the fourth installment of the Transformers series, but she’s an actress on the rise with roles in TV’s Bates Motel & the film, The Last Airbender, under her belt. When it comes to style, she experiments with classic, Old Hollywood looks, as well as youthful frocks that recall a vintage appreciation. The beautiful blonde can really wear anything, which is why designers like Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, Stella McCartney, Dior, & Miu Miu will be banging on her door since she wears clothes so well.

Felicity Jones in Burberry Prorsum, Moschino, Chloe, & Dolce & Gabbana.Felicity Jones is no stranger to the red carpet, but she’s made a name for herself in this year’s The Theory of Everything, opposite fellow trophy contender Eddie Redmayne. The British actress recalls a mix of girl-next-door meets bombshell, keeping her classic style nothing short of sophisticated & effortless. She’s kind of like the English version of USA’s Zooey Deschanel, with dramatic, dark hair & porcelain skin that radiates against everything she wears, like the above looks by Burberry Prorsum, Moschino, Chloé, & Dolce & Gabbana.

Bella Thorne in Alberta Ferretti, Zac Posen, Gucci, & Zara.Disney star Bella Thorne has emerged as a teen-to-watch & young-woman-on-the-verge when it comes to style. The former Shake It Up! actress experiments with feminine gowns, layers of chiffon, as well as chic jumpsuits & mini skirts galore! Her big screen résumé includes the Drew Barrymore-Adam Sandler family comedy Blended & Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day with Steve Carrell & Jennifer Garner. Bella is true to her name, gorgeous in anything she wears, including top designers & brands like Alberta Ferretti, Zac Posen, Gucci, & separates from Zara.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Delpozo, Calvin Klein Collection, Jenny Packham, & Michael Kors.Gugu Mbatha-Raw earned her place in the spotlight with 2014’s Beyond the Lights as a reckless singer & daughter to Minnie Driver. The British import is a classic beauty who wears top designers like a pro. She can mix up lace details, bold prints, minimalist cuts, & bright colors. She’s a must-see for the upcoming awards season, especially having succeeded in Delpozo, Calvin Klein Collection, Jenny Packham, & Michael Kors. Up next for the actress is Jupiter Ascending with Mila Kunis & Channing Tatum, & the drama The Whole Truth with Keanu Reeves & Renee Zellweger.

Emily Ratajkowski in Amanda Wakely, David Koma, Safiyaa, & ZAC Zac Posen.Emily Ratajkowski is a familiar face for showing her best assets in Robin Thicke’s hit “Blurred Lines” music video, but 2014 was her year for her role in Gone Girl. the model-turned-actress has a curvaceous figure that looks fantastic in virtually anything. Some of her most memorable red carpet appearances include looks featuring Amanda Wakely, David Koma, Safiyaa, & ZAC Zac Posen. 2015 means not only hitting the awards season circuit, but also promoting her new films, such as We Are Your Friends with Zac Efron, & the highly anticipated big screen premiere of the Entourage movie. Kiernan Shipka in Valentino, Marni, Tanya Taylor, & Tory Burch.Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka is possibly my favorite new addition to the red carpet circuit for keeping her style age appropriate, but also enviable for being elegant & playful at the same time. Not only is there tons of hype surrounding the finale of the AMC drama, but Kiernan also drew well-deserved attention for her controversial role in Lifetime’s Flowers in the Attic alongside Heather Graham & Ellen Burstyn. The young actress is perfect red carpet fixture in Valentino, Marni, Tanya Taylor, & Tory Burch. I can’t want to see what else she will wear as she grows into one of the most stylish young women in Hollywood.

Brie Larson in Rodarte, DVF, Prada, & Prada.Brie Larson can currently be seen in The Gambler as Mark Wahlberg’s love interest, but the real drama occurs when the actress hits the red carpet. She can pull off anything from gothic-inspired, chic Old Hollywood, girl next door, & take fashion risks with bold prints & patterns. She’s perfection in Rodarte, Diane von Furstenberg, & Prada. Brie will be making more red carpet rounds when promoting her upcoming films Digging for Fire with Anna Kendrick & Trainwreck also starring Daniel Radcliffe.

Suki Waterhouse in Christian Dior, Burberry Prorsum, Emilia Wickstead, & Peter Pilotto.Suki Waterhouse might not be a household name, but the British model & actress will likely be seen on the arm of awards show darling & her boyfriend, Bradley Cooper. As a model, it’s no surprise that she can wear dresses so well, but it’s the variety that’s caught my attention. She’s ethereal in pastels, plays with volume, takes risks with sheer fabrics, & mixes up patterns & classic silhouettes, as seen in designs by Christian Dior, Burberry Prorsum, Emilia Wickstead, & Peter Pilotto. She’s got a big year coming up with a major role in the next installment in the Divergent series, Insurgent, as well as Pride & Prejudice & Zombies.
