Festive Finds: Holiday Alternatives
Posted by Ashling Moss
‘Tis the season for holiday parties and events, galore. While finding the perfect dress is almost as traditional as mistletoe, change it up this season with holiday alternatives. Try a trendy top or bedazzled bottom and pair with a basic. With at least one of these items already hanging in your closet, prepping for numerous holiday events is a cinch.
Try pairing a great ostrich feather skirt or sequin shorts with a simple tee or button-down. Or opt for some party pants – available everywhere in different colors, patterns and textures they will instantly create a luxe look.
Pair your favorite jeans or slender black pants with a trendy peplum top or festive blazer. Look for simple, yet ornate seperates to make any outfit sparkle.

The Classics: Black Pump
Posted by Ashling Moss
The classic black pump. Perfect for day or night, work or play. A shoe that will never, ever go out-of-style and with the right cobbler, will last forever. They might all look very similar, but not all pumps are created equal.
The iconic black pump is truly an “investment piece”. When considering the purchase of the perfect pump, there are several points (pun intended) to consider, including craftsmanship, quality of leather, toe shape, heel height and arch support. This is not an item that can be purchased online, one must kiss many frogs before finding a prince.
From a power suit or LBD, to a favorite pair of designer jeans, the classic black pump instantly creates a chic, put-together look. The reliable shoe is a vital component in every women’s closet. Here are a few of my favorites:
1. Jimmy Choo ~ Anouk Patent Leather Point Toe Pumps: $575.00
2. Christian Louboutin ~ Decollete Calfskin Pointed-Toe Pump: $625.00
3. Manolo Blahnik ~ Manolo Blahnik BB: $595.00
4. Prada ~ Leather Point-Toe Pump: $620.00
5. Zara ~ Leather High Heeled Court Shoe: $89.90
