I’M NOT A PLAYER I JUST CRUSH (VELVET) A LOT

Every winter I bust out my “winter-ish” fabrics: corduroy, faux fur, and of course, velvet.  The crushed velvet look is just perfect for those holiday parties and events.  It screams done-up without being too much, which is why it looks great as a maxi dress, as a pair of flare pants, and especially as a jumpsuit.  Here are some of my favorite velvet and crushed velvet items of the season:

I fly home to Dallas, TX this Friday, and I’m weary of what to pack.  The weather there keeps fluctuating and I’m scared that I may not pack enough warm clothes or vice versa.  I’m definitely bringing my HAH jumpsuit, (as I’m seen wearing), for the Christmas party my sister is throwing at her house on Saturday.  It covers just enough skin so my father doesn’t think I’m a hooker in LA, but it’s fancy enough to say, “Hey, I’m from LA”.

Sorry folks, but I’ll probably be MIA on the blog until after Christmas.  However, I’ll still be active on my Instagram as I have lots of great outfits that I’ve just shot and can’t wait to post and share.  If you like any of my outfits, you can shop it at my Poshmark account or follow my LikeToKnow.It links!  Merry Christmas!

RED VELVET

Happy Monday everyone!  How quickly time flies by.  In just the week that I’ve been back from my vacation in Taiwan, so many things have happened.  We have a new president-elect.  There are protests and campaigns for the electoral college to rethink what’s best for the nation, and I’m already requesting off work for the holidays.  Yup, 2017 is just around the corner, which means it’s the never-ending holiday parties season.

I’m from Texas and we eat only one kind of cake: red velvet.  And that’s just how I like my holiday outfits: red and velvet.  The velvet fabric looks smooth and sexy, and the color red adds the touch of festivities to the mix.

I’m wearing LuLu’s Spin Me ‘Round Burgundy Velvet Jumpsuit in a size S, and this is just decadent.  I love how plunging the halter neckline is, and there are pockets that I can stick my hands in when I get cold.  This jumpsuit will definitely turn heads at your company party.  Here are some of my other favorite velvet jumpsuits to wear this holiday season:

I recently worked with a new photographer, Silvia, who reached out to me about a photographic series that she’s doing called “Hair Biome”.  In order to promote female strength and awareness, she’s photographing her female subjects tossing and whipping their hair to embrace their feminine beauty regardless of their race or age.

We had a blast!  Regardless of your political views, I encourage all women to stand up, unite, and speak out about our rights…especially now that we have a president elect who may not have the highest regards for women.  Xo!
