Take Two...

scarf: gift/shirt: H&M/skirt: Brooklyn Industries/tights: H&M/booties: Silence + Noise available at Urban Outfitters

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and hopefully you're enjoying the day off and relaxing...I know I am. I was all set to do a little photoshoot outside today, but then plans changed. As soon as we went outside it was way colder than I thought it was going to be, and insanely windy. If you thought I was going to take my winter coat off for a little outfit shoot, you have got to be kidding me! So photos inside our apartment will have to do (and I seriously hate doing indoor you can see from my face in that first photo). 

Oh well...

I really wanted to show off this adorable skirt I picked up at Brooklyn Industries about a month or so ago. Isn't it just darling? Not only are the straps removable, but it also has pockets! Instant love. 

I realized that I need to get more scarves in my collection (and start wearing the ones I have more often). If you are in need of some scarf inspiration I suggest checking out this YouTube video by Wendy's Look Book. Here she shows you 25 ways to wear a scarf in 4.5 minutes. It's an old video...but one of my favorites! Simply brilliant.

I hope you all have a fantastic Friday!!!

Okay, I have a confession...I'm 100% addicted to E!'s "House of DVF". In my mind Diane von Furstenberg can do no wrong, but the girls who are on the show trying to earn the title of DVF's Brand Ambassador can't seem to do much right. Constant challenges, lots of drama, and Diane's words of wisdom. I just can't get enough.

Have you all been watching? Who do you think is going to win over DVF and get this dream job? Currently, I think I'm rooting for Brittany. But my favorites seem to change week to week.

What I want to know is why didn't Diane reach out to me for the job? *Sigh*

Trend Alert: LWD

Just because winter is right around the corner is no reason to stop wearing white. Ladies, push your little black dresses to the back of your closet and make room for the LWD (little white dress). Over the last few weeks I have seen this look worn constantly on the red carpet and at events by celebrities. And I have to say, I kind of love it. Here are some of my favorites...

Keira Knightly in Chanel Couture

Kate Beckinsale in Zimmermann

Nicola Peltz in Gucci

Love the LWD look but don't have the budget for a top designer piece? No worries! I put together a must have list of little white dresses...all of which are priced under $80. So get ready to start shopping!!!

Lace Dress available at H&M- $29.95

Cooperative Long-Sleeve Text Dot Inset Dress available at Urban Outfitters- $79

Sancha Long Line Asymmetric Zipped Tux Dress available at Missguided- $66.48

60's Shift Dress in Rib with 3/4 Sleeves available at ASOS- $56.85

Which style of a LWD will you be wearing this season???

Beauty Buzz- Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Over the last couple years I have been practicing the winged liner look. I've tried so many different brands, applicator styles (brushes, felt tip, etc.), and colors. But I have finally found my most favorite liquid liner: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper- ink black

This waterproof liner really stands up to the test. My allergies were bothering me the other day, and it held up even with watery eyes...yet it came off so easily with some makeup wipes. What I really love about it is the brush applicator. It goes on so smoothly. I get a perfectly effortless winged liner look in seconds. It's my new must have item in my makeup case! I'm obsessed!

Have you tried this liner yet? What about any other items in Kat Von D's collection?

*This is not a sponsored post. It's just my new favorite makeup item and I know you all will love it!

Stop Shaving...It's Movember

Today is November 1st, and that means Movember is here! Every year the company I work for puts a team of people together who want to raise awareness for men's health by raising money and not shaving. I'm on the team this year...and no, that doesn't mean I'm growing a beard...just supporting the men in my life and my team.

Movember is touching very close to home this year. A few weeks ago I found out that a very close family friend has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. This is his second time battling this disease. Last time they removed his prostate and did now this time there is really nothing they can do. A few things to slow the progression of his cancer, but that is it. It's really upsetting, and I don't want to see any other men have to go through this.

Here are some facts on men's health: 

  • Did you know that 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime?
  • Around  8,820 cases of testicular cancer will be diagnosed in 2014. 
  • 1 in 4 adults in the United States will experience a mental health problem this year. 
Please help me and my team raise money!!! Any and all donations would make a huge difference in out fight. And if you can't donate, please repost and tell your friends and family about this Mo Sista's commitment to Movember. Spreading the word is so important!
