a case for wedding lace

I've always adored the idea of a winter wedding complete with snowflakes falling softly in the background {no blizzards please!}, twinkling fairy lights, and faux-fur stoles topping winter white gowns. It's a picture perfect fairytale-inspired imagining - one that feels all the more real with cheap lace wedding dresses from dressv.com.

I myself have fallen in love with lace wedding dresses {http://www.dressv.com/lace-wedding-dresses-c103391/} for their old fashion-meets-modern elegance that feels romantic without being over-the-top saccharine - and http://www.dressv.com/ offers hundreds of gowns that fit this majestic mold to. a. T. Here are just 7 of my Top Lacey Picks - I think you'll love them too!

happy thanksgiving lovelies!

“The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don’t, but in the end they’re the people you always come home to. Sometimes it’s the family you’re born into, and sometimes it’s the one you make for yourself.”

Happy Thanksgiving lovelies!



mark. Nailed It Mini Nail Lacquers in Firestarter & Hot Coal Review

On this Thanksgiving Eve I bring you a review {+ pretty swatches} of the latest duo from mark. Unlike the mark nail lacquer and jewelry sets I have been swatching / reviewing all year; the Nailed It Mini Nail Lacquers in Firestarter & Hot Coal duo only includes the polish - so at $7.00 a set, it makes the perfect stocking stuffer for your besties!

Firestarter {left} and Hot Coal {right} are the holiday-inspired shades found in this duo. The former dries to a semi-matte finish; the latter has a subtle shimmery sheen {evident in direct sunlight}.

Firestarter is a Classic Red Creme. This one reminds me a bit of Ciaté Boudoir; however, Firestarter has better coverage. The formula here was flawless - very smooth, with the perfect consistency. This is 2 coats.

Hot Coal is a Deep Olive Metallic. Le sigh...hello lover. This is a color I have been searching years for - I just didn't know it. In the bottle, Hot Coal looks like a deep copper / olive metallic shimmer {very hot cocoa-inspired}; on the nail...exactly. the. same. Though most of the shimmer is only discernible in sunlight, it is there - and it. is. brilliant.. I get warm and fuzzy feelings just looking at this color - so obsessed! Formula was, again, flawless - almost a one-coater, in fact! Well done, mark. This is 2 coats.

What do you think of this holiday twosome?

NOTD: Essie Sable Collar

Two coats of Essie in Sable Collar. Pearlescent Copper Cocoa Plum.

The description of this color should be enough to tell you just how unique it truly is - something that you will, admittedly, either love or hate. Given the fact that the temps have cooled down, I'm absolutely loving it.

Sable Collar is an incredibly sophisticated shade reminiscent of hot cocoa and sleigh rides. It goes beyond the standard brown, featuring a gorgeous shimmering depth that truly appears in sunlight.

Though the first coat was very watery, sheer, and patchy; things evened out beautifully after coat two.

What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?



belle of the {holiday} ball

Though the smells of gingerbread baking in the oven, sparkling lights glistening from rooftops, and sounds of carols being sung by a choir {or blasted from mall speakers} are a few of my favorite things about the holidays; another aspect of the season that I adore is the dresses. You know...the Dicount Prom Dresses {http://www.weddingshe.com/list/Prom-Dresses-14353/} decked out in glittery decadence, or the 2015 Latest Prom Dresses {http://www.weddingshe.com/list/Prom-Dresses-2015-111068/} sporting slits to there or floor-grazing trains - all of which make for gorgeous, high-glamour holiday party attire.

a cooper & ella holiday

I was introduced to cooper & ella a few days ago, and promptly fell for just about every single black & white piece featured in their holiday 2014 lookbook {apparently I'm on a minimalist binge for the holidays}. And why not? The line's birth stemmed from a desire to find the perfect date night blouse - a feat that designer Kara Mendelsohn has totally accomplished!

What makes the cooper & ella line even more perfect? "With each and every cooper & ella item purchased, the brand provides one hot nutritious meal to a child in need." So you'll be giving and getting at the very same time - such a fab sentiment for the holiday season, yes? Here are 6 of my top cooper & ella pieces!

NOTD: Sugar Nail Frosting Glitter Nail Polish in Cake Toppings

Three coats of Sugar Nail Frosting Glitter Nail Polish in Cake Toppings. Baby Pink Creme with Silver and Iridescent Blue Glitter.

Yes, it's a pastel; but this one fits into the holiday / winter polish category for me as it has that whole gingerbread house meets candyland vibe going on - very holiday-apropos in my mind.

Cake Toppings features a phenom formula. The pink base, while being slightly sheer, builds up to a nice opacity; and the glitter disperses perfectly with each coat. I'm a thin coater when it comes to applying polish; but with thicker coats, you could achieve the same opacity you see here in 2 coats instead of 3.

What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?
