Cupcake

I think it might be safe to say that I’ve never met a stripe I haven’t liked.  And this cute little striped cupcake skirt from H&M has been an obvious favorite in my closet.  Like leopard, stripes can be used as a neutral-particularly when they are black and white.  So looking for pieces like this to add to your closet will give you a lot of different options for creating outfits with items you already own!

Green for the Holidays (and a REALLY amazing giveaway!!)

Happy Monday, lovelies!  Today I wanted to share with you another outfit idea for the holiday season.  I love red and always tend to gravitate towards it this time of year, but I am here to tell you that green is a fantastic alternative if you are looking to change up your holiday ensembles a bit.  I never thought I would wear this skirt outside of the summer months, but paired back to black and leopard, it feels totally appropriate and perfectly festive for the holiday season!  In fact, I’m thinking of wearing this exact outfit to an even I have this week!!  But I want to know, would you all dare to wear neon green (tulle!) during the winter months???

And be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for a giveaway you don’t want to miss!!!

Jacket: Blank NYC (best jacket EVER. Also comes in pink, nude, and gray AND it’s under $100!) | Tank: JCrew | Skirt: The Girl That Loves (best tulle skirts-incredibly comfy!), also loving this color and this color, also love this version (under $40!) | Necklace: JCrew | Watch: Michael Kors | Sunnies: Ray-Ban | Clutch: Clare Vivier | Leopard Pumps: Nordstrom (sold out), similar, similar

And now for the giveaway…

If you have followed my blog for a while, then you might remember that I used to wear eyelash extensions.  But after having worn them for several months, I developed a severe allergic reaction to the glue.  And the end result (besides being totally traumatized by the whole ordeal)? Pretty much all of my eyelashes fell out.  And it. was. awful.  Fortunately for me, it was right around this time that I discovered Younique 3D Fiberlash Mascara.  And let me tell you-this stuff is awesome!  I am so hooked on it.  Far less expensive and time consuming than eyelash extensions, you can control the intensity, and you can wear it with or without your current mascara.  People ask me all of the time if I wear eyelash extensions-I am telling you, this stuff is a miracle in two convenient little tubes!

And today (because it’s your lucky day!), I am teaming up with my friend Kim Rosen to give away a set of Younique 3D Fiberlash mascara to one lucky reader (click on the rafflecopter link below)!!!  Winner will be announced Tuesday, December 23rd.

Good luck and happy Monday!!!!!!

The Holiday Season

I love this time of year.  And one of my favorite parts?  The holiday parties!  And fortunately, this season, J and I have plenty to attend-the first of which is this weekend!  So when I saw this skirt in the Nordstrom Savvy department a couple of weeks ago, I knew it was the perfect holiday party piece to add to my closet!  And I’m especially loving it back to a plaid shirt with a pop of red-helps to make it slightly less dressy and perfect for any type of holiday occaision!

Pop of Plaid

Well hello there, and happy Tuesday sweet readers!  Today, I am sharing with you a 2nd outfit idea to wear to your Thanksgiving dinner.  Yesterday, I posted a super casual outfit (a tunic and leggings), and today, I wanted to share with you a dressier option-with a pop of plaid (of course!).  And one thing all of my outfits ideas have in common this week?  COMFORT!!!  While I am all for being stylish on any given day, to me, comfort is key on Thanksgiving! And a relaxed fit dress (with pockets!), paired back to my favorite plaid shirt and leather jacket certainly seems to fit the bill!

Black and Blue

As I’ve said quite a few times this Spring, I am loving the color blue-especially anything in cobalt.  It is such a rich, gorgeous color and looks great back to a multitude of other colors.  But despite it’s versatility, sometimes pairing it back to plain old black is the perfect combination…

Je T’aime

So, I almost didn’t have any blog photos to share with you guys this week.  For once, I was actually ahead of the game and shot some pics over the weekend, but when I went to import them into Lightroom, I received a dreaded error that my SD card was corrupted.  I tried everything to retrieve the photos, but no luck.  So thank goodness for my tech savvy hubby who was able to save the day for me!  And so, in today’s outfit, it should be noted that the message on my new favorite graphic tee is not just dedicated to my love for the combination of neon yellow, and blue, but also, specifically to him.  Je t’aime (I love you)…

Raven + Lily

I am pretty sure that yesterday was the first Monday that I haven’t shared a blog post since I launched All Dolled Up.  And if you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you should: alldolledupblog), then you know I have been in Boulder cheering on my hubby at Cyclorcross Nationals.  And while we had a really fun weekend, horrible roads plus a sick husband on the drive home meant having to unexpectedly stay the night in a hotel in the middle-of-nowhere Wyoming.  So my apologies for missing yesterday!

But now that I am back, I wanted to share with you an amazing company called Raven + Lily.   I love to shop fair trade and have shared quite a few fair trade finds and companies on the blog in the past, and so I thought it was important to share the ah-mazingness of Raven + Lily with all of you.  Raven + Lily is a company founded by two women who wanted to use fashion and ethical design as a “a platform to utilize those passions to alleviate poverty among women”.  The necklace I am wearing in today’s post is a favorite of mine from their Ethiopian Collection and was created by HIV positive women from handmade beads made of melted bullet casings from previous war conflicts.  Talk about a powerful statement necklace.  You can read more about Raven + Lily here, and you can shop their incredibly gorgeous collection here, including designs from Ethiopia, Cambodia, and India.  When we are so blessed to live in this great country, and live the lives that we do, I think it’s incredibly important to give back when we can and support companies that empower women around the globe…
