Pretty Packaging

Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving!!  The time between thanksgiving and the holidays is always such a whirlwind.  You always think you have enough time to buy presents, decorate, plan holiday parties but the holidays always sneak up way faster than expected.  For us we love, love, love the holidays - not only because its the season of giving but because its one of the few times all 3 of us sisters get together.  Its usually only 1 or 2 weeks that we have together, but its always a lot of fun.

Of course one of the highlights of our trip is seeing each other's faces as we open each other's Christmas presents.      Not only do we put a lot of thought into our presents for each other, but we put a lot of thought into our wrapping.  Think - Martha Stewart.  We wanted to share some great ideas with you to make your holiday presents extra special this year.  A little bling doesn't hurt :)

1) Brooches - these make great accent pieces and can be used instead of a shiny bow, plus your loved one can use it!  double bonus!
2) Rhinestones  - can be glued onto pine cones, on the center of poinsettias, and other Christmas decor you have laying around
3) Shiny wrapping paper makes a statement in itself.
4) Fabric - lace/velvet or any other textured fabric  - adds an unexpected yet beautiful element to your gift wrap.  Pair this with plain paper to really pop.

Key Layering Pieces

Layering Effect

During these fall and soon to be winter months where layering is key, here are some essential layering pieces to make sure you have in your wardrobe (listed from top to bottom as pictured above)

1) the chunky knit cable - this versatile piece adds a lot of texture to many outfits.

2) a notice me piece - a sparkly top, preferably cropped and boxy so its roomy enough to layer

3) cropped jacket - this is such an important piece in everyone's wardrobe.  it dresses up an outfit without looking too stuffy.  It also adds dimension to your outfit so you don't come off too frumpy.  Some great fabrics for this piece are tweed, herringbone, wool - all provide warmth and structure to any outfit

4) oversized cardigan - a great cardigan that drapes well looks effortless and comfortable

5) a statement necklace - such as our dominga necklace adds another dimension to any outfit.  (http://www.cayetanolegacy.com/dominga_cocoa.php)

6) relaxed vest - this piece is great because it can be worn all year round.  but during these colder months, this relaxed style would look great with a long sleeve fitted shirt

7) long sleeve tee - this is probably the foundation of all layering pieces  - a good quality longsleeve tee - you can get this in different neck types but scoop neck and boat neck are the most versatile.  This is something you can probably invest in a few different colors since it can be worn with so many different outfits

Layering Effect

Olivia Palermo -stylista well known for her innate fashion sense

You are all probably just as confused as we are with this wacky fall weather. One day we're having a snowstorm and the next its 70 degree weather.  Just when we cleaned out our closets and put away our summer clothes, the sun decides to melt the snow away make a strong appearance. 

This is why layering is always the best fashion solution.  Layering gives a casual-cool vibe, aside from being very practical.  It forces us to create new combination with old clothes.  It allows us to mix different seasons of clothes and increasing the chances of a whole new look without spending extra money on a whole new wardrobe. 

Here are a few tips on how to work the look.

- Mix textures - chunky cable knits are all the rage right now.  mix this with lightweight simple tops underneath so they don't compete with each other or look too bunchy.  way cool tights with geometric designs are also in season - these would be great to layer with a cool boho dress and a furry vest.  Get creative!

- Pair dressy with casual - we're girls, we can't help it, shiny things catch our eye - whether its a sequins tank top, an embellished blazer, or even sequins shorts.  Sometimes we don't have parties every weekend to wear it to, so - instead of waiting for that perfect moment - wear it on a regular day - pair those with laid back finds, use skinny jeans or leggings to tone down an embellished top.  Use a cotton tee with dolman sleeves or an off the shoulder cotton tee to compliment sequins shorts.

- Show off your waist - having a lot of layers adds bulk to our outfits - a great tip to help avoid looking frumpy is to add a great belt.  You can use this over a cardigan and a dress.  It helps give your look a polished finish.

Green with Envy

By Karen:

My absolute favorite design thus far is the Irene jade necklace which is part of our Holiday collection. 


I love the rich hue of emerald green - the jewel tone looks so luxe and adds the perfect pop of color to any outfit.  In fact, as i write this in my sweats at 11pm at night, i'm wearing my emerald green jewel button earrings surrounded by cubic zirconia baguettes - think Jackie O ish. 

As i wait for my request to join pinterest to be accepted, i decided to create a polyvore board with my favorite green things.  Of course we had to include my faves - fur, snakeskin, and beautiful jewelry.
