Denim & Gold

It’s that time of year again babes! Yup, you guessed it, MY BIRTHDAY MONTH, which means that It’s #CapricornSeason y’all! Since my birthday is so close to the holidays I usually prefer an experience over a gift. Besides, I got everything I wanted and more this year.

Will and I went to see the Festival of Lights—an annual light show that takes place at Meadowlark Gardens here in NOVA. The lights are truly spectacular! You almost feel as if you’re in a giant game of Light Bright.

Do you even remember that game?! It’s one of my faves!

In honor of my big day I decided to go full on sparkle & shine in this cute sequin dress, vintage Chanel drawstring bag, denim jacket and my fave thigh-high Stuart Weitzman boots. Ok, so I must confess…the dress is actually from the kids department at Neiman Marcus in a size 14.  If you’re a size 0-2 or petite like I am, you can most definitely get away with wearing kids clothing also saving some money! If you’re really lucky and can fit luxury designer kids clothes (Gucci, Burberry, etc) you can save even more. Cool right?!

I’ve always loved the way oversized denim jackets looked on my fellow fashionistas, yet never liked how it looked on me. Like I said, I’m a size 0 and petite, so oversized anything never looks flattering on me. After searching for what seamed like months I finally found one from Wrangler that not only looks great but is also warm. I usually wear it with a chunky sweater or layer it under my Derek Lam utility vest. When the weather warms up I can roll up the sleeves, throw on a tank and shorts and go. It’s the perfect denim jacket for just about any occasion. I’m wearing a size small and it fits like a well tailored oversized glove! LOL!

Well guys...this has been not only one of the best holiday seasons for me, but one of the most amazing birthdays as well. Sometimes I have to pinch myself because it’s hard to believe how incredibly blessed I am to be able to do what I love—blogging about my style and sharing it with all of you! 

Have a beautiful day and an amazing start to 2019!
