Hello Glam & Sassy loves and Happy New Year! Is it really 2016 already and did this holiday season fly by for you as it did for me? I had such a wonderful December….an amazing wedding in Hawaii (not mine), a lovely Christmas with family and an epic NYE with friends. I wanted to share some of my looks with you and also what I am looking forward to this month in fashion.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
This is going back a few years but do you remember this movie? It took place at a beautiful beach resort, Turtle Bay, and this is where my friend’s wedding was. I am pretty sure we stayed in the same beachfront cottage as the fictional character, Sarah Marshall. It was so fantastic to look out at the ocean every day! Even though the wedding was in Hawaii, it was definitely not a casual affair. Everything from the flowers, the food, and the entertainment, including a live performance by the hip hop artist, Future, was over the top! For this occasion, I wore an embellished black cocktail dress with patent leather black heels that I can dance in all night. After working in fashion for so long, this is rule number one that I tell my clients: Look fabulous. Feel fabulous. What is the point of looking good if you aren’t comfortable enough to enjoy it?
Christmas with the Cousins
I am Italian. There are two things we have a lot of at holiday celebrations: food and cousins! My family is all over the country, so it is really special when we are together in one place. A great way to commemorate such an occurrence, is matching hoodies for all! It started as more of a joke, but once we were all together and decided to put them on, I saw the perfect photo opp! Very red and festive! The perfect sweatshirt for Christmas!
Twice the Sparkle
So by now, you may have figured out that I like to sparkle! Anything that has sequins, crystals or beads seduces me into needing it in my life. The desire to shine is what makes us all Glam & Sassy. It doesn’t have to be head to toe…..unless it is New Year’s Eve (or Vegas!) NYE is my “Fashion Week” of nights out and time to totally bring on the bling! There is no such thing as too much, so I wore a mesh dress completely covered in silver sequins. That still wasn’t enough to satisfy my craving so I stacked bracelet upon crystal bracelet and wore three tiered crystal earrings. We were ringing in the New Year at Avalon Hollywood and my outfit inspiration was the disco ball! What do you think? Mission accomplished?
Now that is January, I am so excited for what lies ahead! I will be working as a stylist with a luxurious clothing line out of New York. More on that company and it’s gorgeous Spring 2016 pieces in my next post so stayed tuned! I will continue to personal shop for my clients and build relationships in this amazing blog community (love you all!) The other great thing about January is the terrific sales! Hitting the sale racks really is the best way to beat the post holiday blues! So let’s go! Have a Glam & Sassy 2016, everyone!
