The holiday's are right around the corner! And if you're like me, you're starting to think about that perfect outfit to wear to your special occasions. When I think of Christmas and New Year's, my mind immediately goes to something sparkly. So naturally, I found some awesome skirts to fit. These could be paired with almost any blouse, but the beautiful white collar with the black bow tie? Flawless. And the best part is, it's on sale for $30. These outfits would look great with some sheer black tights. Topped off with my dream stilettos.

Today I'm teaming up with Rue La La to give you a peek into what's in my handbag and to give you some tips on picking out your own! If you're like me, you always find yourself searching for where you left your purse last - so you can a lot of my time is spent thinking about and looking for handbags. I am always on the hunt for purses that would look good with my wardrobe. Rue La La has written this amazing post on the different types of handbags called "Handbags 101". Basically they have done the leg work for you for when you decided to make the investment and get the more expensive handbag. The article gives details in to why these purses are considered luxury bags and how to maintain them so that they last as long as possible. They also have some great tips and tricks to remember when purchasing a luxury bag to make sure that you are not getting an authentic bag and not being ripped off.
When it comes to handbags, I am definitely a stuffer. Needing so much space to carry around all my essentials automatically makes my favorite type of purse, the "Tote." In Rue La La's Handbag Guide, they outline the different types of bags and the features that make them unique. But my newest and quickly becoming my favorite purse, which I feature in this post, is considered a "satchel."
A few months ago, I came across the "Alexa Tote" by Danielle Nicole, and I was instantly hooked. It's design appeals to me because of it's structure, but also because it has a great mixture of classy and edgy that I love. And then, God looked down on me and saw that I needed a pick-me-up, and sent me into a store I hardly ever go into - Designer Shoe Warehouse (because I would just spend all of my money). I got my black and white mini at DSW for wait for it... $15! And regularly, this bag retails for $80. They are currently have a huge sale for 50% off of the Clearance rack - so take advantage of it while it lasts! I also have linked some great options below, so make sure to check them out!

How was your Thanksgiving peeps?! Did you get any sweet deals this weekend? It's now December and this year is starting to fly by. Normally, I am not the type to go out on Black Friday... like at all. Having to deal with so many people (and rude ones at that) is just something that I usually don't think is worth it. I'd rather wait until Cyber Monday and do all my shopping from the comfort of my oversized pajamas, underneath my flannel sheets, watching Revenge. But this year, our local boutique, Feral Outfitters, had announced early that they were having a 50% off store wide in the wee hours of Black Friday. So, I headed in there on Wednesday to see if there was anything there worth getting out of bed for. And needless to say, there was. I got to the store about 5:30, and I found the most perfect, most comfortable, and most affordable fur vest ($40 with the 50% off). It looks kinda grey in the pictures, but it's more brown in reality.
To top it all off, we did this shoot later on that day at my grandparents cabin that has a huge tree farm on it. So it was beautiful and pretty chilly (ergo, the snow is still on the ground). But it was a great way to spend my Thanksgiving weekend - with my family cutting Christmas trees.
