skinny ties

In the last few years, men’s ties have gotten thinner. And let me tell you, I love a
skinny tie with a spread collar. It’s so European!

If you need a conservative look in the office but want to sport the thin trend, choose
classic colors and patterns or don’t go ultra, string-bean thin.

Also, a thin tie looks ever so stylish with a collared shirt and a cardigan or shawl-
neck sweater.

Looking fabulous for you holiday parties doesn’t stop with a great blouse. Amp up your look with sexy smoky eyes. And we’re not talking the harsh black smoky eyes you attempted in high school.
Instead opt for this modern and user-friendly version.

Here’s how to get the look.

Adding sheer fabrics to tops and skirts is hot right now. It is a great way to give some sizzle to an otherwise-conservative outfit or to add winter whimsy to your wardrobe.

posh polish

As you glitz out your outfits this season be sure you don’t forget your nails. Shimmery graphite is the newest polish trend sweeping across fingernails this season. While it’s a very minimalist look, it gives just enough opulence and edge for any occasion.

Here are a few of my favorite colors:
Nars Full Metal Jacket
Chanel Steel
YSL White Gold #141
OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous
What are some of your favorite colors?
