Holiday Outfits 2016

During this time of the year, it is always hard to figure out what to wear to holiday parties and different events. I have created a few outfits that I would wear to celebrate the holiday season! I hope you will be inspired by these as well.

The dress is involves on of the trendy fabrics of the season, velvet. I love velvets especially when they are a garnet color, I am also a huge fan of the leather collar. The leather collar has a cut out to give it an edgy feel. I wanted to match the color to the shoes and the bag soI decided to pair more black leather with the outfit. The shoes are my absolute favorite as they have a chunky heel. I wanted to add a cute plaid scarf along with sparkly eyeshadow with a plain lip.

This outfit is rather glamorous and bombshell like. I love this pale pink because it is easy to add statement pieces of it. Hip hugging and body con dresses are a major trend of the season. I absolutely love this fur coat, faux fur of course, as it gives it a diva feel. I paired it with red pieces because it represents that holiday colors along with making the outfit more dramatic.

You don’t always have wear a one piece to dress up. I paired this velvet tank with this leather skirt with the most amazing design at the bottom of the skirt. I wanted to have the focus more on the top so I decided to make everything black or a neutral color. A teased ponytail would make this outfit feel more edgy.

There is always the one to dress up a bit girly like, including me sometimes, so I decided to add gold and soft pink tones. I love the design of the dress and the bag can help provide comfort by adding a few pick me ups or hide a little emergency kit if there is a wardrobe malfunction. I absolutely love the hair style because it is not too much and the eye shadow has more of a bronzy tone to it.
I hope you all had a nice holiday season and happy new year! Let’s hope 2017 is even better!

Style Idol: Lily Collins

All of the up-and-coming actress must make a name for themselves in the fashion industry. One of them is Lily Collins. I remember seeing her for the first time when I was younger and she was doing some sort of news cast for Nickelodeon. I saw her again in the Blind Side, one of my family’s favorite movie. She had taken over the fashion scene by storm. I did not pay attention to her much until she starred in one of my favorite movie, Stuck in Love. Other than helping me achieve my eyebrows to their natural fullness, I had started following her fashion and I love it!

This dress by Elie Saab is one of my favorite looks!

This is just a few of my favorite outfits and I cannot help but love her street style. Make sure that when you’re shopping, keep her style in mind because it is to die for!

To Dress Like Lily:

Her style is a bit edgy so always find a dark tee and make sure to find a fun kimono or jacket to top it off.

Fool’s Gold | OOTD

Today is like my 10th snow day and I have put an outfit together, took okay pictures and filmed a video and it is 11:30 am. This has been the most productive morning for a while and I felt like Christie’s Closet for some weird reason. Maybe because I was playing around with my clothes.

Winter Nights | OOTD

Hey everyone! How has life been treating you? I recently finished midterms and am so pleased on the grades I got in French and APUSH (it was a 77 but still good enough). I really want to get back into blogposts and keeping up on outfits so here is one from last Christmas.

My family and I went to Downtown Annapolis to see some of the lights they had to offer and why not do it on Christmas when everyone is inside and celebrating? It was cold but it was nice to be able to walk on the streets without cars running us over. I will hopefully include a vlog about my Christmas.

New Years Dancing | OOTD

Happy almost 2015! I recently made a video (which you can find below) with hair, and outfit ideas for New Years Eve. This is my absolute favorite out of the two outfits and I was so pleased with my hair that even while I was filming I was ‘Oh my gosh! I did that!’.

Here comes my awkward faces!

I did not notice that I had the headband like that!

I bought this dress Sophomore year hoping to wearing it to homecoming, but ended up not to. I have had this in my closet for a year and I have been wanting to wear it to. I love how the black dress has a simple flirty skirt and at the top it is sheer with black polka dots giving it a rather feminine and fun touch to the dress. The headband is gold with pearl and it gave the outfit a nice touch of color. I wear black so much that I never add a dash of color. I am also wearing my nude heels so it doesn’t distract so much from the outfit.

Trend Alert: Winter Pastels

No one has to wear dull dark colors in the Winter anymore! Pastels may seem out of place in the upcoming cold seasons when they are more common for Spring and Summer. It gives this upcoming season full of life and much more to enjoy about shopping. Despite me wearing a lot of dark colors, I am excited for the beautiful pieces to style.

Here are a few of my favorite styles of the beautiful colors placed together.
