It’s Sunday evening and there’s a whole week out there just waiting to be conquered. It’s the holiday season and the whole goal this week is to remain calm and carry on.
‘Tis the holiday season and my inspiration this week is to look a little bit more glamorous but to also keep my sanity while tourists swarm New York City and I try to get enough work done so that when I fly home for the holidays next Wednesday, I am officially ON VACATION. Here’s what’s inspiring me to get through this week in style:
Music video on steady repeat: I am one of those Scrooge-y people that really dislikes Christmas music until literally Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I think it has to do with the creation of Celine Dion’s Christmas albums and my mom’s love of them. Anyway, I like good blues-based rock this time of year that feels a bit moody and sexy. Hence, I’ve redisovered John Mayer’s “Vultures.”
Style Icon(s): Christmas is all about the glamour of the holiday. This is when it’s okay to go a little over the top. When getting dressed for really glamorous occasions, I always think WWBJD – What Would Bianca Jagger Do?
And then I think, wow, what would his OTHER wife, Jerry Hall, do? Maybe a mashup of the two glamour vixens would be a perfect look.
I’m also personally obsessed with his new gorgeous paramour, L’Wrenn Scott, who is one talented, tall drink of water. Life would not be complete without possibly owning something from this talented designer, like this Morticia Addams-esque L’Wrenn Scott Suede Midi Dress.
Makeup items: ‘Tis also the season of the perfect red lip and my favorite, perfect, it-will-actually-look-good-on-everyone red lip is CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Hot. It stays put, it hydrates and can actually improve the condition of your lips with regular use. Take THAT under the mistletoe.
More holiday inspiration to come this week. Enjoy the rest of you weekend and I hope these images inspire you to do something fabulous with your look this week.
