Velvet Holidays

To say that this week has been stressful would be an understatement. Work of course is crazy due to the holidays and it's finals week at school so between the two I'm pretty exhausted. I got to take a small break from the stress last night to go to my work Christmas party and first, I have to say I am so thankful to work with so many creative and inspiring women. Second, I had been saving this Velvet Maxi dress for the occasion and now it's my latest obsession. Theres really nothing like velvet and some faux fur for the holidays!

What will you be wearing this holiday season?

(Stelly Neapolitan Ice Cream Jumpsuit, Umgee Fringe Cardigan, Vintage Concho Belt, Bella & Chloe Turquoise Ring, Topshop Moto Jacket)

Jumpsuits have become my winter obsession. You probably already know (because I talk about it every single post) that I can't stand wearing jeans and rarely wear pants in general which can make getting dressed on cold winter mornings a difficult task. Thankfully I have found my compromise in jumpsuits. They are comfortable, not boring, and do not expose bare leg.

Vintage Effect

As a girl who almost exclusively wears dresses, cropped sweaters and tights are essential to my winter wardrobe. Cropped sweaters are a life saver because you can throw them over almost any dress and instantly it's a little bit more weather appropriate. Tights are essential for more obvious reasons but let me explain to you why I have an obsession with this particular pair of tights. In the 40's nylon was being rationed due to the war but women still wanted to have the look of stockings so they got resourceful. They would paint their legs with makeup and use eyeliner pencil to draw on the back seams. Throughout all of my history classes that was the one little story that always stuck with me, so it's no wonder I had to add these beauties to my growing tight collection.

TOMS Portland

Portland just got a little bit more awesome (if at all possible) with the recent addition of a TOMS store! It's right on Burnside just a couple blocks from the infamous Powell's bookstore and totally beautiful. I've mentioned multiple times that I have a special place in my closet for brands that go above and beyond what you'd expect from them well, TOMS donates one for one with their shoes, and their glasses as well as donates clean water with purchases of their coffee. Here, I'm rocking the cheetah print TOMS wedges (My new favorite shoes) and a pair of their sunglasses and I can feel confident knowing that supporting a brand like TOMS does good for the world.

If you are in the Portland Area stop by and give the wonderful store manger, Mel, and her adorable basset hound, Samuel Gladstone, a big hello for me!

Thank You

Hello my loves! Wether you are celebrating the holiday or not I hope you are all surrounded with love. I just wanted to stop by to say that I'm so thankful for all of you. My blog is my creative outlet and it wouldn't be half as fun without anybody to read it. Thank you for viewing, commenting, and following. I am so grateful for each and every one of you.

So tell me, what are you thankful for this year?

P.S. Two of my favorite brands are having AWESOME sales; Spell & The Gypsy Collective will be having 40% of their Bohemian Royale collection (I've got my eye on this dress) and starting cyber Monday Novella Royale is going to have 50% off their site (Can't decide if I want this dress or this jumpsuit?).
