Happy New Year beauties!
What an amazing and busy holiday it has been for me.  Hope you all had a wonderful one.  New York is currently blanketed in white and I'm snuggled in my teddy bear blankie.

This outfit was originally inspired by JLo's coral Christian Dior dress (here).  During fashion week a friend of mine visited a show room and tried on a similar style in the same emerald color.  It was then I fell in love with it again.  the color looked super luxurious and perfect for the holidays.  I took the picture to my seamstress and she whipped up this amazing design.  I dressed it down with a simple turtle neck sweater and an elegant emerald necklace.  I thought the glove added an extra chicness to the outfit.  These shoes!  I was so in love with Valentinos Studded pumps, but couldn't find my size anywhere.  There were many replicas, but didn't captivate me as the original Valentino did.  Later on in the fall Charlotte Russe posted a customers pic on instagram of a sweet replica; of course they were sold out.  The hunt began.  On black friday they were finally back! Without hesitation it was added to my basket and immediately checked out.  I got an amazing discount and free shipping.  I mean, what more could I ask for?  With that bargain, the wait was worth it.  

Be Confident, be Inspired & ENJOY...
