Adrianna Papell Long Sleeve Sequin Little Black Dress

Holiday is here! I love shooting holiday looks because it gives me a chance to dress up, which I rarely do anymore! Adrianna Papell is a brand I have been working with for a long time and they never fail to provide the most gorgeous dresses. Personally I love their beaded and sequin dresses the most because they are so unique and the quality is amazing. Your dress isn’t going to fall apart on the dance floor! If it’s not, this brand should be one of your first stops when looking for a holiday or formal party!¬†

Adrianna Papell Ruffle Dress for Valentine’s Day

Adrianna Papell came through again for Valentine’s Day! It’s the first place I go when I need a fancy look. I love the¬†diversity of their dresses. You’re probably used to seeing me in their fancy sequined gowns, but this one is a just as gorgeous! I love the ruffles and open back. Plus it’s extremely comfortable for a “fancy” dress.

Do any of you have fun Valentine’s plans?

Kingdom and State Buffalo Checked Skirt and Henri Bendel Schoolbag

Hi…umm how cute is this Henri Bendel schoolbag? I have been saving it to show you because this should be on your Valentine’s wish list! I love how much the color pops and it’s the perfect size! I normally don’t do a lot of pink, but I had to make an exception for how pretty this one is!

And we need to talk about this skirt. It’s from Kingdom & State, so of course it’s classic and so flattering! I got the change to work with them for a Utah Chic Event. They are one of my favorite brands based out of Utah, but the good news is that you can all shop them from anywhere since their store is online! They just launched their new swim line for 2017 and you NEED to go see it. It’s darling!

Tobi Debutante Pants and Saylor NYC Crop

I’ve got another date night Valentine’s look today! I usually don’t wear dress pants, but these front slit pants from Tobi are so unique and fun that I had to try them out! I love the detail they add to my outfit. I had to balance out how great the bottoms were with this absolutely amazing crop top from Saylor NYC. I was going to wear this top for New Year’s Eve, but I ended up not really doing much for New Year’s Eve, so I figured why not pull it out for the next holiday! The good thing about¬†wearing silver sequins is that you can pretty much wear them any time of year!

You can’t really see it that well in these photos, but my mantraband bracelet says “Love You to the Moon and Back”. I’ve always loved this saying, but I think it makes it a perfect Valentine’s gift as well. Not too expensive, but says just the perfect thing! And it’s great for everyone.¬†You could give it to your wife, your girlfriends, your daughter, or anyone who is your special Valentine!

Adrianna Papell for my Valentine’s Day

I’m going to be honest…this is about as Valentinesy as it gets for me this year…no cute lip or heart prints. Not even red or pink. But are you kidding me with how gorgeous this dress by Adrianna Papell is? I am in love. With this dress. I love the sequined detail and the way the bottom is cut to flow behind you. It’s unbelievably beautiful.

Adrianna Papell’s motto is to create a feeling, not a look. Their mission: To make every woman and moment feel special. Each unique piece is created to provide this feeling and help women show off their personality and enhance their own beauty. And in the spirit of being honest, I think this dress makes me feel better than any date would!

Also, I’ve seen a lot of people use her designs for bridal events or bridesmaids dresses and it’s amazing! Just a hint, if you happen to be in search of a glamorous wedding look! These are perfect!

I hope you all have a fabulous Valentine’s Day!

Gowns Galore!

O how I wish I had somewhere to wear these beautiful gowns. Every year around Christmas (or around the Oscars) I just die over gorgeous dresses like these. However, I do not have any sort of reason to go to galas, or art openings, or fabulous awards ceremonies…sigh. So I just lust over them and maybe someday…right?¬†
