If you wanna catch up on the previous installments you have a few to choose from!

And today is {drumroll, please}….

Surviving Fashion…And A Giveaway!

Someday, I hope that I have a reason to buy a ball gown at Christmas and be all gussied up with important people. How come all the celebrities get to have all the fun? Oh well. There are a few things I like to do to make dressing for the holidays a little more special and fun.

We don’t have a ton of money, and if I’m going to buy anyone a Christmas outfit it will be Coco (cause little girl Christmas dresses are so dang cute). For myself, I’d rather go nutso with accessories than try and buy a whole new outfit. I think I have the staples in my closet. Here are a few of my favorite, basic looks for everyday.

And here are a few more dressed up looks. Like I said, I don’t have anywhere really glamorous to go, but I will be sitting in the front row at church to watch Coco sing “Go Tell It On The Mountain” with her preschool. THAT is going to be a big event, in my book. You can bet I’m gonna dress up for it!

Here are some of my “dressed up” staples (that I won’t get to wear :():

Now, as I mentioned earlier, what I’m really excited to wear is fun accessories. Christmastime is all about glitter and gold, red and green–why not incorporate that into some of your accessories? I’ve made a short video explaining what I think are the three ESSENTIAL holiday accessories!

Ok, so yah. You can score a free purse! Well, one of you can score a free purse. For the rest of you, use the code to get 15% off a purchase at Cocomi’s.

    They are all fabulous – this mama needs the hippie gypsy (even though I am far from a hippie). I like the zebra a lot too – but cannot take that away from you!

    I kept changing my mind as I scrolled through. I think I’ve settled on the Leopard print one.

    I only enter giveaways that have less than a certain number of entries, and your giveaway has exceeded my limit… That being said, these purses are just too cute and I want one- the blue and cream striped, the grey chevron, the yellow chevron, the grey polka dots, I’d take any of them! The insane cute-ness has possibly given me adorable-purse-fever because I’ve broken my own rule and entered. ???? BTW, LOVE the vlogs, keep them coming!

    So I have this ah-mazing nail color called “Khloe had a little Lam-Lam”—another Kardashian name but it’s dark teal and just gorgeous. You’d love it. And your white teeth—you make me laugh! Love you, counting the days till I get to see you! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    I’m going for the Zebra W/B. Not typically my style, but if I win it’s a gift for my sis – someone who actually has a life!

    I’m a sucker for anything chevron (I totally bought some duct tape and wrapping paper in the Target $1 section today purely because it was chevron striped), so I love all of those clutches in her shop! The red and cream is pretty awesome.

    How adorable! The chevron grey is so muted and elegant, but I like the bright colors of the chevron multi, too. Just too cute!!

    I’d like any of the ones that require I not pack a diaper bag. Oh wait- that’s all of them!

    Totally torn between the blue and cream stripe with the red embellishment, and the grey chevron… i’m leaning towards the blue though. Love the other accessories on there, can’t wait to browse some more.
