Red Dress and Fashionable Accessories for Holiday Season

Every girl needs a red dress to wear, not just for the holiday season (so that we can look smashing) but also for a dinner date on Valentines Day.  As women, we are reluctante to wear the color red because it’s such a bold hue.  But most importantly, we like to purchase and wear items that accentuate our figure.

The dress below compliments my curves (after having two boys) and my skin tone.  I wanted to give a special touch to the look by adding accessories and wearing a pair of gold chain ankle bracelets.

The Underground Chic Fashionable {Recycled} Handbags

Have you ever considered purchasing a handbag that’s created from recycled plastic bottles?  Well if you’re fashionista that’s environmentally conscious this is the post for you!  The Underground Chic handbag collection’s one of the hotest “birkin inspired” handbags that any girl can have for a reasonable price.

According to the site, “at first glance, the bag appears to be real leather with metal hardware” but in actuality this polyester based handbag’s made from recycled plastic bottles.  Talk about innovative and eco-friendly!

Shop   The Underground Chic

The Underground Chic handbags also come in a variety of “girly” colors such as pink, citrus, green, orange crush, and nautical blue.  And if you’re searching for a fashionable cosmetics bag (to keep all of your favorite lipsticks) you can find one on the site as well.

I was super excited to receive my Nautical Blue (gifted) handbag.  In my opinion, this color will look great for the upcoming season (fall) and coordinate with several items in my wardrobe.

Again, prices for this collection are reasonable (so you can’t go wrong) and don’t forget to join their newsletter for brand updates.  Happy shopping fashionistas from SLF!

Event Recap: Fashion Awards MD 2013

Photos from this year’s Fashion Awards MD event are posted below.  I was super excited to be a nominee, especially since this blog has only been active for one year (hooray!)  In addition, every nominee in the media category was very talented, so for me (personally) it was truly about the experience and being amongst those who share the same “love” which is fashion, art, and style.

The event production was also nice from nominees standing on the red carpet, to guest enjoying refreshments, and the opportunity to network with industry professionals.  Lastly, to give this event the fashion flair that it deserved Lana Rae (the event founder and owner of the KIS Agency) was able to have Lianca and Johnny from Kimora: House of Fab serve as the awards show host.

I look forward to attending this event again next year.  For additional details click on the link: Fashion Awards  Photos below are taken from my Instagram account.
