Holiday outfit details:

Bodysuit (sold out, similar here and here) // Envelope Skirt // Heels // Earrings // Wallet

Can you believe it’s already time to start planning out holiday outfits?! I’ve been posting gift guides for weeks, but this post made it feel real. Only 4 weeks until Christmas! Whether you’re looking for an office party or a night on the town, I’ve got you covered. The Lizard Thicket’s holiday collection is seriously so cute! Not only do they have a great selection, but it’s super affordable! Both of my outfits are under $50. *Insert praise hands here am I right?*  I was torn between this outfit and velvet dress from my boutique in Greenville. Velvet is definitely one of the most popular trends of the season, so I pivoted to something different for this post. What I love about this skirt is that it doesn’t ride up when you walk and it fits true to size.

Red Dress Outfit Details:

Dress // Heels // Bracelet (old, similar) // Wallet // Earrings

Looking for a classier option? Another favorite outfit is this red dress! It’s also a true red which I’ve had such a hard time finding this year. I adore a good burgundy, but I think Christmastime calls for that holly jolly color. I love getting the chance to dress up for holiday parties. In college, there were a lot more ugly Christmas sweater functions than fancy soirees (not that I’m complaining). What’s your favorite kind of Christmas party? To be honest, I’m all for anything with free food!

P.S. I’m SUPER excited about this post because I’m teaming up with some of the coolest #Bloggerbabes out there! Kelsey from Blondes & Bagels and Morgan from Mostly Morgan created some amazing looks for the holiday season. You’ll definitely be able to find an amazing holiday outfit between the 3 of us. I’ve mentioned them on the blog before, so you’re probably familiar with their styles. If not, you should view their blogs and become obsessed just like me! :) You can follow them on Instagram here and here.

The great thing is that that with a quality coat, it can last you for years. There’s really not a reason to make the investment! I’ve been searching for quality camel coats for years, so I’m happy to have found so many inexpensive choices! (scroll to the bottom to see my picks)

Fall/Winter 2017 New York Fashion Week Recap

(Crazy how this is from this same time last year!)

New York Fashion Week was a whirlwind! It took me two weeks to recover and be able to write this. All jokes aside, I had a blast and can’t wait to do it again! Did I mention that this all happened during the first blizzard of the season? We got 12 INCHES OF SNOW, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying everything NYFW had to offer! It definitely made for a freezing, but unforgettable week!

Thursday: Michael Costello

First event of the week kicked off with THE Michael Costello. This was hands down my favorite show that I went to! Michael has designed for stars such as Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, and Beyoncé so of course I was sold. Unfortunately, it was the same day the blizzard hit the city, so I didn’t wear the trendiest outfit. So I won’t be sharing that with you guys. :) Thankfully even some of the “A-listers” were wearing their puffy/marshmallow coats. Here are some of my favorite looks from the show!

A post shared by Tomi Obebe (@goodtomicha) on

There were a lot of empty seats because of the storm, so I was able to sit on the second row like a B-list celebrity, HA! I loved that while his designs were high fashion they were very much still wearable! For some reason there was a giant Care Bear in the audience (someone said they were a sponsor but I’m still truly at a loss) and I met internet sensation, Pandemonia! From the gorgeous hairstyles to the flowy gowns, his show definitely gets a 10/10 from me.

Friday: Stylinity + Lulu Frost Event

Friday afternoon my friend and fellow blogger hit up a brunch event in the city. There was champagne, gorgeous floral decor, and accessories from Lulu Frost’s latest collection to shop! Gergana Ivanova (Fashion is my Forte) hosted the event and did a live interview with former supermodel Veronica Webb! It was so fun to catch up with other bloggers and talk about everything we were looking forward to during the week.

 

Raul Penaranda:

The next event started right after work, so Hannah and I rushed over to what looked like a brownstone in the middle of the city. Right when we walked in I could tell this wouldn’t be good for my anxiety. The place was cramped with far too many people, they served Chinese food as hors d’oeuvre, and tried to charge me $20 for a glass of champagne. It was time to move to the left, to the left, because I did not have time for that. We snapped a couple of pictures of the women in the showroom and moved to our final event of the evening. This show was unfortunately my least favorite during NYFW.

Since we had 2 hours to kill in between events, Hannah and I decided to hit up New York’s latest food craze! I shared my thoughts about the sweet sensation and if it lived up to the hype in this post. 

Chromat After Party:

After the horror that was the previous show, I was ready to have some fun! The Chromat designers rented out a space at The Gilded Lily- a trendy nightclub and bar in lower Manhattan. In attendance were models, people who worked for the designers, and other bloggers. The atmosphere was great, but as a woman who’s too cheap to pay mixed drink prices we stayed for only a couple of hours.

Over the weekend I had invitations to 2 other shows, but I was honestly too exhausted from balancing work and blogging! I knew that I needed to practice self-care and rest up for the week ahead.  would definitely encourage other New York City-based bloggers to take either half days or the entire week off to be able to do everything efficiently.

Wednesday: Irina Vitjaz

Photo creds: Simply by Simone and iFashion Network

The show was held in the same venue as Michael Costello, but started 40 min late.  I also got a seat right at the start of the runways, so it wasn’t the best for snapping photos. It was hot inside the warehouse you could tell people were getting cranky. Right at that moment, the first few designs came cascading down the runway. A few of the models tripped (poor girls!) but people will really only remember the gorgeous designs. The yellow dress in particular blew me away! I finally was able to balance chic and warmth and chose this midi-dress and wedge booties. I’ve linked my entire outfit below!

I still can’t believe I got the chance to go to one of fashion’s most important events of the year! It was literally  a dream come true . I knew that once I moved here, it would be a now or never situation (hopefully I’ll be back in September but who could know!). I’m so thankful God gave me this opportunity. I’ll definitely write a post on how you can go to NYFW as a blogger in the future. Maybe I’ll see you at the next show! ;)
