Top Knot

The top knot has been spotted all over Fall runways and sitting gorgeously atop celeb heads. About a week ago, I thought maybe I'd try it out. I came out of the powder room after about 239,047 hours, and asked my husband what he thought. We don't have to worry about Anthony lying, even for the sake of feelings. He'll always tell it to you straight. 

"You look weird."

Thanks babe, I really do appreciate the honesty. And there went the bun.
 Bare in mind, I suck at hair. I can do makeup, I can do fashion, but I'm the girl who blow dries and straightens her hair day after day, because you can't go too wrong with that. It's safe. 
But what if I don't want to be safe anymore? Isn't that what fashion is all about? Pushing boundaries? 

So, today after watching Sydney's tutorial on her blog, Daybook, I decided to give it a go. My bun turned out much better this time around, and it only took like five minutes. Thank you, Sydney.
What do you think? 
Does it look like I have two heads?
Could I wear it in public? 
Or should I just stick to feeling this glamourous while washing the dishes?

Faux Fur Fabulous

Faux fur is so fun. I would suggest one piece at a time though. That's enough to dress up your outfit and not over do it. Here are some of my favorites, all of which are pretty affordable.

Ciao, and stay fab. (:

What to Wear to Thanksgiving Dinner

What to wear on this special day depends on how casual or dressy your family's get togethers typically are. Please note, I did not include skinny jeans in either of these looks, or jeans at all for that matter. I don't care how great you look in your jeans on Thanksgiving morning, you will not look cute at 6pm when they're unzipped and your muffin top is exposed. 
This dress is oh-so-comfy. Trust me, I bought one in an alternate color just yesterday. But I love, love this color because you can wear mustard tights with it! And, mustard is so hot right now. 
I love yoga pants. I wish I could wear them everyday. Paired with one of these cute striped sweaters, you can be super comfy, and still look amazing for all those family photos that will inevitably be taken.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and remember... Stay fabulous!

Family Photo Inspiration Guide

Family Photo
It's that time of year again. Thanksgiving is around the corner, and after that, greeting cards need to be sent out. Long gone are the days when every one's wearing the same color shirt and khakis. Mix and match prints and bold colors, it's okay. Try to stick to a particular color pallet, but allow your family to express their individuality. 

Mommas, I would suggest picking your outfit first, because the kids are going to look cute no matter what. Find what you feel fabulous in, and then coordinate the rest of the family's outfits to match (but not matchy-match). Feel me?

Do you have a family photographer yet? If not, contact me. Lucky for you, I'm in the biz. :)

Have fun, and stay fabulous!
P.S. This dress below is marked from almost $50 down to  $13.79 on! Seriously.

Gotta love promo codes!

I love Levi's. I have an exceptionally hard time finding jeans... whether they're too short or too long, too saggy in the butt or give me a muffin top. I struggle. Until I went to the Levi's store in San Francisco. I told the lady helping me exactly what I wanted in a pair of jeans, she sized me up and found them for me! The only problem for me was the price.
