The Forest of Denial

It may be December but the weather in NC is in total denial. It's absolutely beautiful, and I can't get enough of being outdoors. 

I bought these fur-trim booties back in 2010 during my annual shopping trip to London. I didn't wear them at all last year, but given the current bootie trend (not to mention the abundance of texture combos) I thought I'd break them out. I teamed my boots with tha furrrrr with some sexy lace and a warm oversized wrap cardigan.

I love adding new elements to classic looks; why not be sexy, comfortable and warm this Winter?

Booties: ALDO
Cardigan: Esprit
Lace Legwear: Forever 21
Have you broken out your favorite Winter booties?

OOTD: 3 Words: Little.Black.Dress

I recently lent my mug (and pins) to Carolina STYLE Magazine for a fashion spread photo shoot! 

One of my favorite pieces was this little black dress from French Connection.

This knit bandage dress, with side cutout details, is the perfect LBD for holiday parties. The body-con style and V-neck, paired with skyscraper heels, made feel like a goddess of sorts. 

Here are some behind the scenes pics of the photo shoot, courtesy of Jason Rizzo of RaleighStatic.

Do you have a go-to LBD in your closet? 
I'll leave you with this reminder from the amazing Karl Lagerfeld:

"One is never over- or under- dressed with a little black dress."
