Black & White Holiday Look

Dress: c/o Maison Jules // Bootie: Soda Anisa // Bag: c/o Old Navy // Necklace: Urban Gem via RocksBox // Rings: Prima Donna and vintage

T'is the season to be jolly and I'm super excited. Here is a simple yet very pretty Holiday outfit of the day you could wear from Holiday parties to opening presents on Christmas day and everything in between.

I absolutely love this Maison Jules dress. Yes, that's right. I said dress! The top is an adorable striped knit bodice. It also featured a very feminine crew neckline and sleeves that come right to the elbows.

The bottom is also perfection. It's a beautiful white tulle A-line skirt that flows exquisitely as you walk. Don't you just love sweater dresses!?

I'm wearing this double zippered black faux leather cross-body bag by Old Navy. Although it seems small, this bag has three compartments that can hold quite a bit. It also featured gold-toned hardware. 

I've added this high heeled black booties by Soda Anisa. They're black faux leather and feature a little platform for some added height.

I added this gorgeous Urban Gem necklace to add some serious sparkle to this outfit. It's the perfect statement piece for any holiday holiday look. They came in my latest RocksBox subscription. I also wore some Prima Donna rings and a vintage ring I've had for years (on my right index finger).

I kept my makeup simple using Urban Decay's Naked Basics and Streak palettes. I'm also wearing Frank-N-Furter by Mac for a pop of red to this look.

Will you be wearing some cute sweater dresses this winter?

Fit Friday: Baked Cheesy Zucchini Sticks

I love finding creative ways to eat vegetables. This is a simple yet delicious recipe you should try at home. It makes for a perfect, healthy side dish for your meals. 

Zucchini (each makes 4 sticks)
Grated Parmesan cheese (or low-fat cheese of your choice)
Garlic Powder or Garlic Salt
Salt & Peppers to Taste
Olive Oil

1. Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise. 

2. Cut each half in half lengthwise as well. You'll end up with 4 quarters lengthwise.

3. Place them on a cooking sheet and drizzle them with olive oil. Salt, pepper and add garlic powder or garlic salt to taste.

4. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese or another low-fat cheese of your choice on the Zucchini sticks.

5. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Place them under the broiler for another 2 to 3 minutes to brown the cheese and create a crispy crust.

6. Serve and enjoy!

PoshFest Day 2 OOTD: Stripes & Gold

Dress: Kate Spade via Poshmark // Shoes: Via Spiga via Nordstrom Rack // Watch: Michael Kors via Nordstrom Rack// Jewelry: Margaret and Elizabeth via RocksBox, Prima Donna & Vintage // Belt: Unknown // Nail Polish: Rouge Louboutin by Christian Louboutin

For my second day at PoshFest San Francisco (and the day I co-led a workshop on how to gain more followers on the Poshmark app), I chose to wear a feminine and flirty dress that totally captures my aesthetic and personality. 

I found this adorable black and white striped dress on Poshmark (how fitting!) in the closet of user DesignHamptons. She's a great seller who was kind enough to allow me to buy this dress for lower than the price originally listed. What other consignment store can say they do the same?

This beautiful dress is by Kate Spade - one of my absolute favorite designers. Kate Spade's brand simply speaks to me with their girly yet chic designs and style. 

This dress features a full a-line skirt that flares out from the waist. This is a really figure-flattering shape, which is why it's such a classic. I added a thin black bow belt to emphasize my wait even more.

The dress also has a unique and eye-catching bow across the chest leaving two cut outs at the top. This detail is what first caught my eye when I saw the dress and made me fall in love with it. It also has pockets! Love love love dresses with pockets.

I added some gold accessories to make this look pop. I'm wearing a vintage braided bracelet from the 70s that I purchased at a local thrift shop and added a similarly braided ring from Prima Donna. You can take a closer look at it on my Instagram page here.

I'm also wearing a stunning pair of Margaret and Elizabeth earrings which I received in my latest RocksBox delivery. I love these beauties so much that I actually purchased them. How could I return such an exquisite piece of jewelry?

I'm very into watches at the moment so I also added this Michael Kors chronographic watch which I purchased from Nordstrom Rack at Union Square here in New York City.

I finished this outfit of the day by adding these sexy Via Spiga heels. They're black patent leather, double strapped peep-toe shoes. They feature gunmetal hardware which is quite uncommon and one of the reasons I was immediately drawn to them. I also bought these at Nordstrom Rack at an unbeatable price. I find that my Rouge Louboutin nail polish by Christian Louboutin really stands out against all the black from the heels.

How do you like to showcase your feminine and flirty side? Let me know in the comment section below.
