Black booties are extremely popular right now and are a staple in my own wardrobe.  They are classic and versatile.  They come in so many different styles and can be worn for a number of different occasions.  Details such as fringe, buckles and zippers can add fun, unique details to any look. Right now, I am especially loving lug soles and wedges, because they give me height but are still easy to walk in.  Black booties are a smart investment that will make a statement in your wardrobe again and again.

Here are a few of my favorite pairs:

1. Lug soles, 2. Wedges, 3. Fringe

Purple Lips

"Unusual" lip colors are on trend right now, but they're not always practical for daily wear.  However, I feel that purple lipstick is a happy medium for those of us that want a break from the classic red lip, but still need to look professional.  Purple is bold, but not so much that it is distracting in a business or formal setting.  Companies like Lime Crime, ColorPop Cosmetics and Kat Von D Beauty are producing beautiful, vibrant shades that are cruelty-free AND complement a variety of skin tones.

Here are a few of my favorite shades:

1. Lime Crime, 2. ColorPop, 3. Kat Von D

Fur vests are a sassy, fierce fashion statement.  They can make any outfit look expensive while simultaneously being super comfy... it's the best of both worlds!  Vests can fit into anyone's wardrobe because there are so many styles to choose from.  This trend can be paired with leggings and a blouse or dressed up with a dress and tights for work.  Vests are a perfect layering piece, especially when the weather is unpredictable during the late winter months. 

Here are a few styles to choose from:

1. Feminine 2. Edgy 3. Bohemian
