25 Days of Christmas… Amazon Gives the Gift of Music

If you are anything like me, the minute after Thanksgiving dinner I find it appropriate to begin playing the Christmas music and get excited about the collection of music that can only be played during this time of year.  However, as much as I love my classic Christmas music, it can get tiredsome listening to the same songs over and over.  It’s not often that I deem it necessary to buy new Christmas music because I don’t get use out of it all year long.

I try to expand my collection by buying one Christmas album each season.  This year I chose Lady Antebellum, A Merry Little Christmas LP.  This is exclusively available through Target.  I love Lady Antebellum. I think they harmonize so well- I knew they would make some beautiful Christmas songs.  I recommend this Christmas album… but even more so I recommend getting music for free this season.

Ladies and Gentlemen, once again Amazon is having a bigger sale than iTunes.  Every day until Christmas, Amazon will post one free holiday song.  If today’s posted song is any indication of how the rest of the month is going to turn out, I will have something to be excited about every single day this month. It really is like the 25 days of Christmas.  The deal launched today with White Winter Hymnal, by Fleet Foxes. I don’t have any inside sources to tell me what they have in store for the rest of the month but as I’ve said before, who can resist free music?

Have a Foodie Holiday, Barneys’ holiday catalogue

I recently posted Food is Fashion This Holiday Season at Barneys, which goes into the details of Barneys collaboration with the Food Network for their food related holiday campaign titled “Have a Foodie Holiday”.

I just got wind from the nice people at that photographer Nobuyoshi Araki’s photographed actress and model Kiko Mizuhara for the “Have a Foodie Holiday” themed catalog. When I realized that Araki is the photographer responsible for the Lady Gaga images inVouge Hommes Japan, I was certain that the imagery for this crazy “Have a Foodie Holiday” would be stellar.

‘Tis the season for Holiday dresses

It’s that time again, when your calendars start filling up with Holiday functions.  Whatever your Holiday plans entail, this time of year can be hectic…planning dinner parties, scheduling vacation time, or most importantly, finding something to wear to all of your Holiday events.

I’m here to possibly help lower your stress level.  I’ve created looks appropriate for all of the events you have scheduled for this Holiday season!

The Office Party

Boat necklines are very elegant and flattering on most body types.  Pair a LBD with nude heels and a jacket with a pop of color for a polished and sophisticated look.  You might not wear this at the office, but you want your outfit to portray you and your professionalism (even if you you are dancing with the guy from accounting)!

Affordable options: Pleated v-neck dress, Ruffle jacket

Dinner with your boyfriend (and his parents)

This dress is festive, cute and the coverage of the dress is perfect for dinner with your future in-laws!  Pair a short dress with opaque tights for a charming, yet modern look (his parents will be sure to adore you)!

Affordable options: Chiffon dress, Open-toe platform heels

Dinner with friends

This is a trendy outfit that your friends will appreciate!  Pair a cable-knit sweater with a knee length skirt for that “lady-like” look that we love for Fall.  Add a motorcycle jacket and ankle boots for a little edge.

Affordable options: Wrap skirt, Ribbed collar jacket

Cocktail Party

Nothing screams the Holiday’s like a little bit of glitz and glam.  If you’re attending a “cocktail party,” this is the perfect look.  Pair a metallic dress with platform ankle boots for a flirty and fun look!

Affordable options: Metallic lace dress, Zipper clutch

Rugby Holiday 2010 Lookbook

Rugby Ralph Lauren launched the first batch of their Holiday 2010 collection in stores and at on October 13th. The collection features all the great preppy pieces we’ve grown to expect from Rugby; cargo pants, tweed jackets, blazers, cardigans and sweaters. Unfortunately nothing about the collection is really that new or cutting edge – Rugby is known for playing it safe, and that is what they’ve done once more with the Holiday collection.

There are a couple of pieces I especially like; the evergreen tree/reindeer womens sweater as well as the burgundy, yellow and black stripped mens blazer.

What do you like?
