I always have high expectations for New Years Eve plans—sometimes they pan out, other times they don't.  No matter where I am, I love to celebrate with friends by my side and a glass of champagne in hand.  Here are some looks I would love to be in when ringing in 2011...
a pretty lace dress to wear with killer heels...

an embellished sparkly top to pair with jeans and flats...

sequined pants in winter white with a casual top and fun jewels...

and for a more conservative affair, this simple grey dress with a beaded necklace.

Hope you have some fun planned for Friday.  All the best for a Happy New Year—cheers!


fall/winter trend: faux fur

fall/winter trend: faux fur by wakincloset featuring a faux fur vest

There's a whole lot of faux fur around these days... and I love it! It makes its appearance in a variety of neutral colors and textures on vests, as scarves, lining even the most casual pieces like hoodies.

Last season I got myself a faux fur vest which I've put to great use already this season, pairing it with flowy tops, jeans and boots. I also picked up a sweatshirt at Old Navy with a faux fur hoodie which is so comfortable and so cozy.

These are some of my favorite faux fur items I've seen this year. Bundle up and stay warm!
