I have to say – I’m usually not a red lipstick kind of girl, It’s tends to look too elegant and feminine for my style. So you could imagine when I recently received the Rouge Silky Satin lipstick from the Christian Louboutin collection I wasn’t thrilled (except for the packaging, so nice!). I feel so bad asking someone to exchange a gift for me that I usually donate the ones I don’t want, but who donates Louboutin, right?! I was recently heading out of the house and really didn’t have a lot of time to get ready, I saw the lipstick sitting on my counter and figured what the hell I may as well give it a shot. I quickly realized that having red lips is the easiest way to get ready. I just need to do my brows and put on some red lipstick and I get the easiest, fastest and most elegant look ever . Plus, it’s the holidays so you know what that means ~ everything matches my lips!

Winter is slowly coming, and I’m slowly getting my fur coats out from my closet (too bad they seem to never find their way back – instead they tend to end up in a massive pile on the bench by my front door – I usually tell Bobby it is for when I have to throw one on to walk the dogs so he doesn’t have to but that’s not true (shh!). I found this raccoon fur scarf over the summer that I wasn’t going to buy but I couldn’t pass it and knew it would come in handy, it has become one of my favorite scarves lately. It goes with everything I wear, and it easily makes my outfit look so elegant, I go from zero to one hundred real quick. What I normally do is put it over the collar of a normal coat- immediately makes your coat look SO MUCH more expensive and your guaranteed to get.

Speaking of looking elegant, the bag that I’m carrying is one of a kind and gives even the gloomiest of outfits so much pop. The textile is from Guatemala and all the bags the company makes have different colors, weaving and even meanings. It’s like a morris code of the weaver’s life and social class on a piece of wonderful huipil (don’t worry I didn’t know what that was either, apparently it’s the term of Guatemalan clothing).

“Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet. Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion. Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back. Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love. Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything you can’t control is teaching you how to let go. “
