As you can see, my obsession with long sleeveless vest continues. I really love this look because its so simple yet you can throw on heeled boots and a red lip and it really jazzes the look up.

Plaid + Fringe are two fashion trends that have been in for quite some time now. If you follow my instagram (@pearls_and_paris) you have seen this fringe bag multiple times. It’s my go to bag! It’s super chic and can be worn casually or for a night out which I love.

While #allblackeverything is my fashion motto, I see myself leaning even more towards it since having my son 3 months ago. Black obviously is very slimming but it also creates a very clean silhouette when wearing a statement piece such as this sleeveless long red plaid duster. I pulled the look together with these gorgeous over the knee boots which has the perfect heel height when on the go.

‘Tis the Season… for my Holiday Gift Guides!

I decided to kick off my series of Gift Guides with items for the guy in your life. Every year I ask my husband what he would like, and I always get the same response “I don’t need anything.” I get so frustrated but I think back at some items he may have mentioned wanting, or saying he liked and best yet – just sticking to what I KNOW he loves and I just run with those ideas. Here are 5 gift items -for HIM- to make this Holiday even more merry.

HolidayHIM

1. Dollar Shave Club 4X Razor Membership / $40-$100 – To me, this is one of the most unique and thoughtful gifts you could give to a guy this season but most of all practical. You start off by choosing a gift of 3 months, 6 months or 12 months. The 4X, AKA the “Lover’s Blade,” is their most popular razor and has a cartridge that contains 4 stainless steel blades and a pivot head razor handle. The 1st box also includes Dr. Carver’s Shave Butter & Post Shave. You also have the option of sending them an E Giftcard and they can decide which blade package they would like to receive.

2. Citizen Black Croc Embossed Leather Strap Watch / $80 – This classic black on black watch is not only stylish but very affordable. It has a black croc-embossed leather strap with black dial and silver-tone stick. It’s simple yet elegant and can be worn casual or to dress up an outfit.

3. The Macallan Fine Oak 15 Year / $80 – I don’t know much about whisky & fine scotch but what I do know is my husband has a bottle of what he likes to refer to as “really good scotch” and he doesn’t like to bring it out all the time. That bottle would be The Macallan and while at home we have the 10 Year, he always gets the 15 Year when gifting someone a bottle. A really great bottle of booze is always a hit.

4.Ralph Lauren Polo Red Intense Gift Set / $93 – You can never go wrong with cologne for the special guy in your life especially when it comes from a timeless brand such as Ralph Lauren. A spritz of Polo Red Intense begins with a fresh, fruity top note, which is amped with ginger tones, only to be surpassed by a heart of spices and woody notes. It is a very sophisticated scent that is long lasting.

5. Ugg Ascot Leather Slippers / $120 – Available in 3 colors, the Ascot is Uggs best selling slipper. Natural wool and rich full-grain leather compose this slipper, which has been equipped with a durable rubber outsole suited for indoor and outdoor wear. Not only do they look sharp but they are super comfy.
