Punk Inspiration in the Tundra.

 Although I love the warm climate of Miami, I recently flew up north for the holidays to spend time with my family and get a taste of the cold weather.  When I say cold, I don't mean a slight breeze.  As I pried open my eyes this morning and gazed out into the snow covered grass, I couldn't help but cringe at the sight of it.  There's something about the bitter feeling of being slapped in the face with cold when I step outside that doesn't make me scream for joy.  On the other hand, it gives me the opportunity to layer wardrobe pieces and rock my winter boots or jackets.

I typically live in strappy sandal heels and skirts, but I've really been loving the fact that I can wear my winter pieces while I'm traveling for the holidays.  Aside from fashion, the snow on the ground makes it feel much more like the holidays are approaching.  Christmas lights on palm trees just don't express the holidays quite as well.


Lately, my go-to denim has been DL 1961's Emma in Athens jeans which are the perfect fit and provide the most slimming silhouette.  The jeans have more of a legging-jean fit with faux front pockets, which I love because they make legs look slimmer without bulky pockets.

I've also been loving the punk-inspired trend, which I've incorporated in this look by simply wrapping a plaid shirt around my waist along with a graphic top and leather jacket.  It's such a quick and easy way of pulling a look together that is chic yet comfortable.

Haute Holidays: 2013 Holiday Gift Guide for Women + HUGE Giveaway!

The infamous line that it's always better to give than receive during the holiday season is, well, not entirely true.  It's also great to receive a little, right?  So I have compiled some of my favorite gift ideas for the 2013 Holiday Gift Guide for Women as part of my "Haute Holidays" video series on my YouTube channel.

In addition to some fabulous gift ideas for your mother, boyfriend's mom, sister, BFF, or any other girl in your life, I will also be doing a huge giveaway!

1. Splendid Coronado Shopper Handbag
Splendid Coronado Shopper in Black/White is such a great bag for any woman due to its basic color which allows her to wear anything with it.  Not only that, but the spacious size of the interior lets a girl put her whole life in the handbag (which is what we do anyway, right?).

2. Frederic Fekkai Hair Products
I'll also be giving away three of my favorite hair products by Frederic Fekkai, which is the Pre-Style Thermal UV Protectant, Essential Shea Pot de Crème, and Brilliant Glossing Cream.

3. Bath & Body Works Goodies
Bath & Body Works has the best smelling candles that create an aromatic feeling throughout an entire room, and this year the company released mini mason jar sized candles in a multitude of delicious scents.  Therefore, I will be giving away a Cinnamon Frosting candle as well as their Cashmere Glow lotion and a small anti-bacterial sanitizer.

4. H&M Face Mask
This is pretty self explanatory, right?  Well, H&M's face masks are surprisingly fabricated by Estee Lauder which I learned from one of their in-store employees.  I love to throw one of these on before a big event or during an at-home pampering night.

5. Dermarose Skincare Products
Dermarose carries some of the most high-quality formulas for anti-aging in the skincare sector, and I absolutely fell in love with these two products.  Their Swiss Rose Stem Cell Anti-Aging Exfoliating Cleanse and Serum would be a really cute gift to package together for a pampering or spa gift to your mom.  For example, throw a candle, lotion, and face mask along with the Dermarose products into a basket and there you have a beautiful holiday gift for her.

6. Luv Ya Skin's Pumpkin Cleanser
As I've mentioned before, I love Luv Ya Skin's Pumpkin Cleanser which literally smells like a room full of pumpkin pie.  I desperately try not to lick my face after applying this cleanser.  You can't really go wrong with products that nurture a woman's skin or beauty.

7. Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips
The Sally Hansen nail strips are my go-to when I have no time to sit down and do my nails, or I'm out saving the world one crime at a time.  

8. Favorite CoverGirl Products
I've been loving CoverGirl's Capitol Collection which is inspired by the Hunger Games: Catching Fire, as they partnered with the fashion-fierce movie.  A great idea would be to package a bunch of products together as a "beauty gift" to a little sister or BFF.  My current favorites are the 241 Aquamarine InkIt Eye Liner, 800 Very Black Blaze Mascara, two CoverGirl Smoochies Lip Glosses, 320 Shadow Pot, and 640 Black Heat nail polish.

9. iPhone Case
You can't go wrong with a phone case as a gift, unless you get her a case for the wrong phone.

OOTD: The Holiday Dress

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and ate plenty of delicious food over the long weekend.  Everything is good in moderation, so I cooked a Thanksgiving meal this year and my son loved it.  I feel like he's at the age where he really appreciates good food (well, not really because he eats everything).  Anyway, today's look of the day is my favorite dress that I actually wore to a red carpet event but it could also apply as the perfect holiday party dress as well.

The detail on this BCBG dress is impeccable and so delicate.  It's feminine with just the right amount of sexy added to it.  I paired it with some nude pumps with rose gold hardware and accessories.

What I'm wearing:
BCBG dress (new season)
Steve Madden heels
ALDO bracelet
