I discovered the perfect jumpsuit this Fall when I worked with Meg Shop on a Fall Transition Lookbook. It fit me perfectly and embodies classic trends such as a cross neck front, and wide pants while still acentuating all my curves. I also love that it’s long sleeved, perfect for Winter and even more perfect for a dramatic Holiday Look!
I love a great jumpsuit, from a denim overalls to rompers, but this beauty was my favorite. The fabric is amazing and the color is festive. A jumpsuit can definitely be a great go-to look for a Holiday Party. No worrying about your dress riding up, but you do have to practically get undressed to use the restroom (unequivocally the only major downside to jumpers, rompers, jumpsuits and bodysuits). I’m still on the hunt for a great New Years Eve Dress. It seems this year won’t be as cold in NYC (today it hit 63 degrees), so I can be a little more adventurous with styles of dresses.
More than dressing for the Holiday Season, I’ve been indulging in finding the perfect scent for Winter. I just bought Crinoline Body Fragrance from & Other Stories and I love the smell of it. It’s very light and crisp and smells mostly like a lingering cotton. It’s the kind of scent you’d wear on Christmas morning, or when you and your beau are staying in for a home cooked dinner. It’s the way I’d want to smell naturally waking up in a beach front bungalow in Anguilla. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing brands like Lancome who sent me a beautiful Holiday Makeup Kit and topped it off by including the delicious scent of their hit perfume La Vie est Belle. It smells very sweet and full and musky. I love it for a Holiday Dinner with family and friends or a walk along trails of leaves in Prospect Park. Then there is Pinrose, a fairly new luxury perfume brand out of California. Pinrose is one of the first of it’s kind, taking cues from you to prescribe the scent just perfect for you. You can take a quiz which gives insights to the kind of sounds, visuals and colors you like which then magically compute out the perfume in their collection that you’d like the most. Then presto it’s mailed to you. It worked for me and I got a lovely bottle of Secret Genius which smells exactly like love to me. So if you’re looking to gift some Holiday Scents check these brands out!
