STYLE STORY: Tis The Season

Welp, it's the Saturday before Christmas and before family and friends begin to arrive, I thought I'd take a moment to share my holiday look (and no, it's not red).  It's a very rare occasion that I wear any red, so I lent my styling efforts to create a blue ensemble for this year's holiday post.

Because I'm so extra (at times), it's virtually impossible for me to find a complete look in one store.  Initially this look started with the purse (teal) and the shoes (silver with satin finish and sequin encrusted), both found on clearance at DSW (collections: Lulu Townsend and The Glass Slipper Collection respectively).  As usual, during one of my closet rummages, I located this beautiful blue watercolor feathered skirt I purchased from NY and Co. while in Miami last summer and paired with an Elle VJ tiered blue tank top.  The closing piece to this ensemble is a blue crop jacket with rhinestone trim I picked up during a random stop at a local thrift store (no, I do not thrift, but I do enjoy a great buy from time to time).

I ended up wearing this ensemble to an HIV awareness fashion event in Charlotte and it went over great.  As is the case with most events that I attend, I may have been a little overdressed, but isn't that the purpose of attending a stellar event . . . . to stand out.  After all, my brand mantra is: "the only way to dress is UP".

Again, I very rarely wear red, but this blue does come off as festive and merry.  I'm so eager and excited to see my family and friends during this holiday season and more importantly seeing all the stylish looks.  Follow along on social media and check out the official hash tag #ElleVJ.

Happy Holidays!
