When it comes to jewelry, my philosophy is the more, the better. Coco Chanel’s advice was to remove one accessory before leaving the house. Mine is to pile it on until I’m content. But after receiving JustFab’s Ready to Rock necklace, I think Coco was on to something. This big, bold rhinestone necklace is so attention-grabbing that I let it to stand on its own — and really it doesn’t need any help from other meager baubles. This necklace can transform a simple T-shirt and blazer to dinner-appropriate, and an LBD to holiday-ready, but it won’t break the bank. An image consultant friend of mine thought it cost upwards of $75 after feeling its weight, but fortunately it’s less than $50!
Everyone thinks that summer’s the harshest time for hair–and it can be. But winter does it’s fair share of damage, too. When you least expect it, your bouncy, full locks can be destroyed by the whipping wind and dry air the colder months bring. With that in mind, we recommend you moisturize your hair just as you would your skin–with a rich and nutritive hair mask or serum at least once a week. It’ll keep your strands from becoming brittle and breaking, and help you increase the time between hair cuts. Which everybody likes.

How did it get to be November? Not that I’m telling you to put it on your calendar — do you need to borrow a pen? I have tons — but that means I am turning 32 in two weeks. I know, I know, I look barely a day over 31. So sweet. Anyway, click onward to see what we’re wearing today.

It’s officially cold out now, and we’re yearning for cozy clothes. One thing our closets are sorely lacking right now is long-sleeve dresses. Worn with tights and a sweater, these dresses will keep you looking stylish and warm.
I don’t spend a lot of time lusting after fashions I can’t afford; it’s counter-productive. But ever since I peeped the Donata over-the-knee boot at the Ugg Australia showroom, I can’t get them out of my head. These boots have a sleek leg-lengthening, thigh-high style complete with bomber jacket-esque stitching. But more importantly, the Donata is also warm and cold weather-appropriate because it is lined in Italian shearling and features a rubber outsole. With these boots I wouldn’t have to sacrifice style for function or vice versa … but I would be broke. At $1,095, the Donata is sadly way out of my budget, but I will continue to lust after them from afar.
