New Year’s Eve

New Year's Eve


Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed the holiday with your family! Our Christmas here in Dallas was extra special since we had a white Christmas and that rarely happens! I told my 5 year old daughter Bronwyn to sit by the window and take a moment to enjoy the beauty of the snow since it could be a long while before we see more especially on Christmas day so we did together!

Well today is New Year’s Eve (Eve) and if you are still putting together a last minute outfit and still trying to figure out if you are doing anything, I have a few easy last minute dressing ideas for you. These suggestions can take you out on the town, house party, dinner out and dinner in!

  1. Jewelry for your feet.  Pull out the stilettos with studs, rhinestones, sequins and all over dazzle.
  2. Glittery tops. Pair a glittery top embellished with jewels, sequins, or crystals with black pants or skirt. Your bottom can be in any fabric as long as it’s black.  Think leather skinnys, brocade black, short flare skirt, pencil skirt.
  3. Glitzy jackets. A blazer, tuxedo jacket, motorcycle jacket or vest will work over a simple black top and elegant pant.
  4. Long glamorous earrings will add a lot of extra to your ensemble.  Find earrings dripping with color and lots of stones.
  5. Red Lips. Not a whole lot to say here but wow! Red lips are so in now. If you go with this look, keep makeup at a minimum as to not compete with your lips.  Application notes, be sure to line lips in red and note that richer colors looks best on darker complexions while fair skinned individuals should opt for a brighter red.  You may need to buy a couple of colors at the drugstore (that’s what I did) and try a couple of shades until you find the tone you are happy with.
  6. False Lashes. I love false lashes period.  I wear them all the time but hey it’s New Year’s Eve so have some fun! I love the lashes with embellishments especially with a soft or nude lip!

 Just follow at least two of the tips above and no need to stress or run out and buy something new. Remember to celebrate in moderation and don’t forget about setting your goals for the New Year! Here’s to Healthy and Happy 2013!!!!  Kathy, Fit Fashionista

Glamour Girl Gold and Black

Gold and black mixed together are a hot trend this fall season.  You can do a solid LBD and accessorize with gold. A gold and black clutch, earrings, statement necklace, cocktail ring or edgy cuff paired with black will make an outfit gorgeous and glamourous. (I’m hearing Goldmember from Austin Powers in my mind every time I say gooooold) funny…anyway…
I went to to make my board but you can go there and play and put outfits together that you would be comfortable in before you shop.  I know everyone won’t love the metallic gold J Brand skinnys but guess what? Paired with a black top they are so fun, festive and very chic.  Gold and black will be perfect for holiday parties which are right around the corner.  So now is the time to start planning your holiday party wardrobe. That means eating right and exercising now to look fabulous later!  Be sure to check out Marzia’s Healthy Holiday Challenge that starts today!
One more thing I want to mention is the Narciso Rodriguez limited edition collection at Kohl’s department store. The collection goes on sale November 7 at 7am.  This is a great time to pick up a designer piece for a very affordable price.  I have my eye on a black and white color block dress!!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday and great weekend! When you are out running around in Dallas please share if you come across some great value finds or any thing you might want to share with us and I’ll do the same! Kathy, Fit Fashionista
