Neutral vs. Bold colors

Lacey skirt is so in....

Still love my sparkly gold pumps

Pumps do wonders for the legs :D

Color scheme: rose, brown, and cream ....and of course rose gold! 

Brown belt, brown peep-toe pumps

I love the contrast between these colors

I bought this trench coat in the summer and I can still wear it in the winter! Love SoCal weather! =)

Definitely was ready for a night of dancing (minus the coat,  of course) <3

Every girl has multiple LBDs

This dress was too plain w/o the belt--the added a little  sophistication to the look :)

I would wear during the day and into the evening.

A simple, yet fun dress with just a metallic vertical line. 

I love the back of this dress! 

The dress is simple, but the sparkles made their statment. 

More of a professional look (sorry, it's wrinkly at the end, I had it hemmed). 

Lace is baaaaack...

....so romantic!

One of my favorites! Bubble dress w/ thick belt.

I feel so comfortable and sporty in this LBD!

My smile says it all! hehehe....<3

Cleaning my make-up brushes

Tips to cleaning your brushes: use antibacterial (hand or dish) soap (to remove the make-up) and olive oil (to keep the hair healthy). =) Just swirl the two together and rinse the brushes in warm water.

Happy 1-1-11! XOXO! :)

Happy New Year, friends! Here is something I put together today as I got ready for the 1st day of 2011!!!  I ended up trying on different shoes, sweaters, and accessories! What can I say, I love options!! <3 

Capri look w/ heels...

Tried on a pair of suede ankle booties....

Then combat boots for a tougher look...

Decided cardigan w/ red heels is more my style...

Borrowed my dad's (oversized) cardigan and wrapped up in a black scarf as it got chilly outside

Couldn't resist showing off my new watch! =P

I went back to wearing my own cardigan because I like the more tailored look. 

Love the braided belt...so versatile! :)

That's it for now...I hope everyone had a great NYE and NYD! I wish you much love, happiness, health, and success this year! It was a bitter-sweet 2010 for me, but it can only go UP from here!  Keep smiling and never stop loving! XOXO! ~Kathy
