                  A couple weeks back I got to model some gorgeous items over at Saks Fifth Ave
        in New Orleans. ( A huge shoutout to Steven and everyone who let me take over the store!)
                 I got to walk around (for the first time) in a pair of 6 inch Louboutin stilettos!
                                                  It was quite the experience.

                   One of my favorite things about the holidays (besides dressing up) is sporting super
    luxe and slightly over the top accessories! My picks for the holidays include; a super luxe vest,
    maybe not as extravagant as this navy chinchilla fur vest but a good statement vest, even in faux
    fur, is a great wardrobe staple. Second; a statement jacket. This charcoal chinchilla jacket is to
    die for! It's edgy and so classic and can be worn with just about anything. Thirdly; an insanely-  
    over-the-top clutch. You can pair it with a jeans and a blazer or a show stopping floor length
    evening dress. The crystals on this Prada clutch are just beautiful and I love the deep greens
    tones. Fourth; a carry all tote. Look super chic even at the office. This black satin Prada bag
    has more than enough room for all your everyday essentials.  And lastly, but certainly not
    least-- shoes! Blinged-out shoes are all the rage now. What's more fun than an embellished-
    six-inch-high pair of Louboutins ?! These two amazing  pairs of stilettos immediately caught
    my eye. ( They were actually really easy to walk, in case anyone was wondering) I love the
    crystal and suede details! A crazy-fun statement shoe is a 'must' for all you party girls.
    I especially love pairing them with high-low skirts, as you can see.

                                                       ~  Happy Holidays! ~

                                                 Happy Thanksgiving! 
       This time of year is always so much fun for me. I get to spend time with my family and friends,
 learn new recipes, and my personal favorite........ BLACK FRIDAY shopping! The weather has been
amazing and as you can see, I broke out my new boots! I found them at a local Consignment shop and have literally been living in them ever since. Due to the insane amount of food I knew I'd be eating, I
decided to go for a more 'comfy-casual' look. What's more comfy than jeans and a sweater?

                                    I hope your Thanksgiving was amazing!
                                    Here are some things I'm thankful for ~

Last week I had the privilege of covering the 'Amelie G Fall 2012 Issue Release Party'.
The event was held at the Ogden Museum in New Orleans and icluded a runway show where various New Orleans based designers showed some looks from their latest collections! The
event also featured pop-ups sales from designers and stores around New Orleans, such as
Stephanie Young,  Jess Leigh Jewels, Construct Jewelry, and Luca Falcone. 

 You can keep up with the magazine through their website and Facebook page, here and here

'' Amelie G Magazine is a New Orleans based style magazine featuring emerging artists and designers. Amelie G Magazine started out in 2009 as an online fashion magazine. The Premiere Print Issue was launched in the fall of 2010. The webzine continues to be updated monthly with articles, features and fashion spreads while the print issues will be a quarterly publication distributed throughout the New Orleans area. "

The latest issue featured a beautiful letter by the wife of the late Editor in Chief, Edmund Kee. 
In the video posted above you can see the shoot for the magazine's Fall 2012 Issue entitled 
' The good, The bad, The Beautiful'.

 As far as my outfit goes, I went for the classic black on black look. I recently purchased the 
black dress and clutch from Target and I just love them!
I enjoyed the event immensely and hope you all enjoy my snapshots from the party!
