OOTN: Christmas Edition

Hola chicas! I hope you all had a magical Christmas with your loved ones wether it be family or friends or both. This year we hosted Christmas at our house and of course with all that comes much hard work making the preparations and touching up last minute decorations.

I was so happy and filled with joy to have mostly all of my family under one roof. I think as the years pass I truly feel the holiday spirit and really understand why people feel nostalgic around this time of year.

Here is a small recap of what I wore and other miscellaneous images from Christmas Eve.

Lips: MAC London Life

Sweater: Worthington JcPenney Tweed Shorts: H&M Tights: Charlotte Russe Shoes: Penny Loafers Fancy Steps
Merry Christmas!

Necklace: Bought this summer on a Haul vid HERE but never worn until now.

OOTN: Top Knot with Red

Hola chicas here is an outfit I wore to the previous event I attended. It was a cold night and I had initially planned to wear a dress but as I ran late I knew it was not going to work out due to ill preparation and the fact that I was a bit bloated : (

I decided to pull out this red blazer I wore in a previous post HERE. I wanted something besides a black top that would make it stand out. The week before I had scored a fab vintage silk loose top that was black and had vertical black stripes. I did not want to be too casual but did not want to be to office-y looking by wearing slacks. I finished off the look with these stretchy fabric and stretchy pleather pants that were so comfortable.

I hope you like this outfit and enjoyed it as much as I did. Sometimes the things we have planned out in our head that don't come out benefit us and push us to be more creative.

No fuss bun this saved my life!

Phx Fashion Gives Back Event

Hello lovelies~ I have been a bad blogger I know (nodding head) I however have not forgotten about any of your blogs and will get back to my writing and posting duties.

The holidays are here and like many of you I have been at family gatherings and also a multitude of events that are planned around this jolly time. Phoenix Fashion Week organized Fashion Gives Back and extended an invitation to all individuals and local celebrities in the fashion industry to benefit a wonderful organization called AZ Helping Hands that helps those in need. This organization has events that help children obtain back packs for back to school and also families that are in need and cannot afford the necessities be it during the year or for the holidays.

All the guests brought donations of clothing, toys, shoes, apparel, and many other gift certificates in order to be donated to the families that were selected. The venue was decorated very festive for the holidays and the attendees enjoyed performances and raffles as well. I am very pleased to have been invited and that here in our local fashion community we can come together to offer what we have and make a family's holiday season that would otherwise not have the joy.

Here is a quote that I really like and hope you enjoy too. 
The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value. ~Charles Dudley
