This time of year is always a blur of holiday parties, work events, social outings, cocktail parties, and the like. So what does a person need to survive the gauntlet of holiday cheer leading up to the end of the year?

Some serious holiday style!

Coat Dress with A by Anubha

Is it a dress? It’s it a coat? Does it matter?

When we started this A by Anubha shoot all of the outerwear was laid out in my bedroom. With all the beautiful fabrics and divine colors spread out in front of me I immediately went for this piece.

Everything about this piece makes it wholly unique – The classic silhouette, the flattering neckline, the combination of fabrics and colors, the covered buttons.

Here I’m wearing it with simple accessories and my favorite go-with-everything peep-to booties, but you could easily kick things up a notch with statement jewelry and high-octane extras like lipstick red stilettos.

Have YOU ever worn a Coat Dress?

FitBit Flex x Tory Burch

In the past year I’ve had the chance to try out the FitBit and Misfit Shine – Two similar fitness trackers. My interest in primarily in tracking my sleeping patterns, or lack there of, but I also love getting a look at my activity levels.

After a colleague showed off her Tory Burch bracelet for FitBit Flex, I knew I was going to have to give in and get one as well. The gold hinged cuff is super chic, far and away the best looking tracking device I’ve seen to date, plus I had been wanting to give the Flex a try.

Of course since I’m a victim of instant gratification and once I decide I want something I can’t wait more than a few hours, I immediately ordered both goodies from Bloomingdales.

Getting reward points makes up for not waiting for it to go on sale, right?

Trendy Mondays: Sequined Dress

I’m thrilled to introduce a new collaboration with new San Francisco-based boutique Trendy Mondays. I met one of the founders a year or so ago, an uber chic stylist in her own right, and was beside myself with excitement when I learned she was going to be launching a boutique featuring stylish labels from her native Spain.

When we got together to discuss a collaboration we knew exactly what we wanted – To show the modern woman all the great ways to wear classic wardrobe staples in fun, flattering ways.

First up – The statement dress!

Every woman should have a cocktail dress in her closet that does two very important things: (1) Makes her look amazing, and (2) Makes her FEEL amazing.

You know what I’m talking about, that piece that always puts a smile on your face or, no matter how indulgent you’ve been, makes your figure look divine.

It seemed fair to start this series out with this dress as it was the first thing that I picked for the collaboration. I love the combination of fabrics, textures, and colors. It’s rich and dramatic, but still versatile.

How do YOU style your favorite cocktail dress?
