LOOK OF THE DAY: AUDREY HEPBURN-ESQUE FEATURING DRESS LILY + PROMO CODE


Happy Monday, Fashionable Friends!


I hope everyone in the United States had a safe and yummy Thanksgiving shared with loved ones.


I'm in our Nation's Capitol, Washington DC, and wanted to share my look under $100 that I recently sported. I am no Audrey Hepburn, but it reminds me of her in the all black and ankle pant.  


It would be perfect for work or an evening at the theatre with an added statement necklace.  I think a different shoe would kick this look up a notch, but a classic black heel always works.


It features some of things I received from Dress Lily, an affordable online shop that was kind enough to send me items of my choice to try out for all of you.


I'm in love with the fitted cut of the Tan Puffy Coat, which is as pictured online and quite warm, but please note that their sizing runs quite small, so be sure to size up! For reference, I'm wearing a medium in the coat and could have gotten a large.  If unsure, I'd stick to jewelry, shoes and accessories.


Items not pictured in this look are the Black & Gold Tie Necklace, which I love and featured in a recent post here and many of you liked over on my Instagram.

Along with a pair of Taupe Button Embellished Knit Boot Cuffs, I've loved this look since it began and have used knitted fingerless gloves to achieve the same look in the past, seen here.


See my entire look with full details below, and get an additional 15% OFF + FREE Shipping using the Promo Code DL15 through December 3rd! 

TAN PUFFY COAT: DRESS LILY = $21.50 (AVAILABLE IN OTHER COLORS)  /  BLACK TURTLENECK: FOREVER 21 = $7.90 (AVAILABLE IN OTHER COLORS)  / BLACK CIGARETTE HIGH WAISTED ANKLE PANT (SIMILAR): EXPRESS = $34.95  /  BLACK HEELS (SIMILAR) : MICHAEL SHANNON FOR OFF BROADWAY SHOES = $29.99  /  SILVER & RHINESTONE RINGDRESS LILY = $2.50

GET CRAFTY: DIY CLUTCH ORGANIZER UPDATE + MORE LID RACK IDEAS & GIVEAWAY


Happy Monday, Everyone!


Three years ago, while getting settled into my New York City apartment, I had an idea while in the kitchen isle at Target.  
This idea turned into a simple Get Crafty DIY post here on my blog.

See original post here  GET CRAFTY: DIY CLUTCH ORGANIZER USING KITCHEN LID RACK

Since then, my post has gone viral with over 100,000 pins and shares combined, been published in a magazine, featured on Buzzfeed, Yahoo, MSN Lifestyle, Good Housekeeping, Apartment Therapy and in countless blogs.  Say what?!?  


I had no idea this was an undiscovered way to store clutches, I was just tired of mine falling over! :)


So, this got me thinking that there must be additional uses for it.  I was inspired to revisit the post that put my little blog on the map, so to speak, and see what my brain could create.


Below, I'm sharing more simple uses I came up with for the very same Lid Rack.  Target still sells it, the only difference is that the price went up $1.  Hopefully, they each offer some more useful ideas.  


Enjoy, and thank you to everyone who has supported my blog over the years.  As well as to those of you who liked my idea, shared it and helped to spread the love, I am so very grateful to you

To show my appreciation, I'm giving away this very Lid Rack!

 TO ENTER GIVEAWAY:
Simply Pin one of the ideas below on Pinterest and leave me a comment with the link below or Like, Comment or Share this post on my Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Only one of the above is needed to enter, or you can do all for multiple entries, and I will pick a winner at random and have it shipped to you before Christmas. Open to everyone!

AFFORDABLE ONLINE FASHION: FORMAL HOLIDAY DRESSES FROM AISLE STYLE


Happy Saturday, Everyone!


'Tis the season!  This means it is holiday and festive cocktail party time, which also means you might need a formal dress or two to celebrate with friends and loved ones.

  
Many of us already spend extra money this time of year, but why not save a little on your formal, statement dress.  Formal and designer dresses often cost $500 and up, so, I thought to check online where they often sell cheap prom dresses to get something nicer for less.

Turns out, many of the online sites offer options that work perfectly for events other than prom, especially for those of us way past high school, like myself! ;)

So, I pulled a few from Aisle Style, which carries a number of short prom dresses as well as long prom dresses, that I thought would work for the season.

Each dress comes in a wide variety of colors, costs around $125 - $175 and will work for any fun, dressy holiday or cocktail party that you or a friend might be having.

That said, if you are attending a wedding this season, be it formal or more cocktail guest attire, they also have a number that will work for that type of event as well.

What are some of your favorite shops to buy formal dresses?  Feel free to share in the comments below.  It's time to sparkle and shine!
