As it gets closer to the “big day”, many of you will be entertaining at home. If you are like me, you are already organized and know exactly what your holiday table will look like…yeah, right! I am not organized at all, but have been looking at ideas on Pinterest, and wanted to share some of my favorite table settings.
I love using fruit as the main centerpiece, as it looks beautiful, but can be used for days after to fill up stomachs. And the simplicity of using everything white can be so effective in creating a beautiful table. Hope some of these photos give you some inspiration and ideas.
I hope you all had a great weekend! We had a very busy one starting Thursday night. I was introduced, along with eleven other women, for Fashion Stars for a Cause. What is that you ask? Twelve women are selected every year to represent Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas to help raise funds and awareness for this much needed cause. I am so honored to be among the women selected, and to be able to contribute to such a worthy cause (you will be hearing more about this in the next few months!).
I had this dress photographed last week, because this is what I was going to wear to the wedding we attended on Friday night. I love this dress, but switched to another at the last minute. The dress I am wearing is Martin Grant . I love his designs, but not his price tag. I snagged this dress a few years back at Saks Off Fifth. I love it when that happens…you find a dress you love at a discounted price! I have bought several classic dresses that are on rotation for weddings or dressier events. I tend to keep them simple, and change my jewelry or shoes to give them a different feel (probably could have used a spray tan!!!). Anyway, the wedding we attended was the most beautiful event I have been to in a long time. There was so much love and joy the entire night, and we were so honored to be among those who witnessed it. I love a wedding at Christmastime!
Saturday night, we went to dinner with friends at a cool spot at The Joule Hotel, called The Midnight Rambler. If you are planning on being in Dallas in the near future, I highly suggest a stay at The Joule. The lobby is one of the coolest I’ve ever seen, with an expansive collection of original artworks, including works by Andy Warhol, Tony Cragg, Adam Fuss, and Richard Phillips. And, the famous thirty foot tall eyeball sculpture, directly across the street, is also owned by The Joule. I am dying to take a day and try their newly expanded ESPA. Maybe after Christmas?!!!
So, here we are, another week closer to Christmas. I hope you are accomplishing everything you need to do. All I can say, is that my head is spinning, for more reasons than the hustle and bustle of this time of year! That will be for another post.
It’s that time of the month again. No, not that one, but CHIC AT EVERY AGE! We were so excited about December’s post, because of course, we wanted to do it on Holiday Dressing. It was so fun to show up and see what each of us would wear to a party during the Holidays. I think our fashion personalities are pretty clear by what we all chose.
What kind of Christmas party you are invited to will definitely determine what you should wear, but I was thinking on the lines of someones home. As you recall, I am a jeans kind of girl. I get dressed for the day, and never want to change clothes until I go to bed. That’s why I am wearing the coated black jeans above. We all know that black looks dressier, even in jeans. I paired them with this amazing BCBG feather top and the bronze leather REBECCA MINKOFF jacket. Both of these pieces I adore! And the shoes, I want to wear with everything, if I’m not in my boots or Uggs…yep, I said it!
I think my fashionista friends above look amazing! Ashley of SIDESMILE STYLE looks adorable in her party dress and fur! Oh to be in your 20’s again…you can wear anything! Sam of STYLE OF SAM looks so chic and polished in all winter white with gold accessories. She can mix vintage and new better than anybody I’ve ever seen! Heather of STYLE BY FLUENT…well, she looks just damn sexy!!! Check out their posts to get details on what they are wearing.
I hope you all have a great weekend, and this gave you some ideas of what to wear if you are attending any parties.
