Obsessed with this tiny clutch made specifically for you Iphone. Its the perfect size to fit your Iphone, credit card case and a lipstick, what else do you need when you are going out! I love this small clutch its so adorable, as well as incorporating a petite yet elegant strap to place on your shoulder! This would make an excellent gift this holiday, even a gift for yourself! Also comes in solid red which I love, solid black, and a blush with polka dots.

On my daily Cusp.com visit tonight, the front page had changed... to this beautiful picture above. I became in love with this dress and these photos. And it is a fabulous dress for the holidays especially new years eve; I just adore this dress. What you don't see in this picture is the open paneled back, therefore adding a touch of sexy while still remaining very feminine, dainty and girly. Love.
Lovers and Friends, "Sequin Tiered Dress" found at cusp.com
Riri, if you see this blog post.... this is a very big yet discrete hint : )
The way Shopbop has paired this amazing Rag and Bone "Renard Metallic Dress" with a black belt and black booties. Although I am obsessed with this dress, I absolutely love love love this look! I love the metallic pairing with solids such as a belt and I love this being paired with a solid bootie. This outfit is so simple yet stunning and makes a statement. Although no one really has the funds to indulge in this 1000$ dress I would like to use this look for as inspiration for dressing during the holidays. Wear your metallic dress and keep the rest simple like this outfit! Add a belt or booties for an edge, and keep the jewelry minimal!

Pour la Victoire's Chantel pump is my absolute favorite shoe for this holiday. It is so girly, dainty, with a little spark of sexy. The classic pointed toe pump takes on this frilly femininity by incorporating scalloped edged finishing with a mesh lining. I already paired these shoes with all of my outfits I plan to wear this break; I am now so thankful that I finally purchased these shoes this evening!
Not only is this outfit absolutely hideous, it is the most unflattering thing I have ever seen. I never thought to use my blog for fashion don'ts and to be a hater, but this outfit was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Consider this my only hater moment on this blog, and just embrace this ugliness with me for a few moments..... like geeeewww what is this catastrophe?! Did someone not warn her that those pants aren't doing her any justice? Yikes, Miley.

Candela's Paige dress is straight up fabulous. The perfect sequined dress with the right amount of detail to set this dress apart from the rest of the sequin dresses. The floral pattern of the sequins dolls up this dress with a touch of mesh see through collar detail, and finishing the back of the dress with a key hole. I'd like to see this dress being paired with hot pink or red suede pumps and, of course, hot red lipstick! You can find this dress at Shopbop
There is nothing better than walking around for a least an hour in Whole Foods, especially the Whole Foods in Boulder; its ginormous! Whole foods is great and it always brightens up my mood because I love cooking and trying new recipes. I am not sure if I love Whole Foods because its organic and natural, or if I love the vibe in Whole Foods. It's so friendly in there, everyone seems very happy; maybe it is because everyone in the store appreciates cooking and eating well therefore there is a mutual understanding between all shoppers. Whole Foods is always inspirational and cheerful during Christmas. The bakery is stocked with Christmas pastries and cookies, while Christmas candies and sweets surround the entire store. Today at the store, I grabbed two Christmas themed items. The first being this amazing Candy Cane Taffy and the second being a beautiful flower arrangement. This mini flower arrangement being sold during the holidays really sparked a great DIY project. All you need are mason jars and some pretty festive flowers! Go to Whole Foods with in this week and let the store provide you with some holiday spirit or inspiration. Whether it is baking cookies, eating a chocolate or buying some sushi; let Whole Foods provide some sort of goodness for your day!
Recently, I have become obsessed with glitter nail polish, specifically Butter London's glitter nail polish. They have a wide variety of pretty colors, and its really easy to paint on to your fingers! Not clumpy whatsoever. The most important reason though, to why I choose Butter London's nail polishes is because they are also all natural; nail polish has harmful ingredients as we are just finding out in recent studies. Therefore, with Butter, you can be carefree and also have fabulous nails for the holidays!
Go to your local department store that carries Butter, I get mine from Nordstrom, and check out all of the amazing holidays colors! It's overwhelmingly fabulous!

Lacking Christmas spirit? Me too. Anyone else feel the stress from the end of the semester, finals, papers, Christmas shopping? I am one big ball of stress right now, with absolutely no time on my hands to do anything but homework, while I squeeze a few minutes here and there to browse online for Christmas gifts and more inspiration for my blog! I haven't been feeling too inspired, however, if anything I am too stressed out to allow myself to be inspired. I cannot wait until this semester is over with, to say the least. I cannot wait to go home to my mom's cooking, holiday decorations and listening to Charlie Brown's Christmas on repeat. The holidays are a very jolly time for the Cignarale house.... if only I could be there right now! Anyways here is an array of pictures to let you escape for a few minutes from your busy day, and brighten your spirits!
The Cignarale family homemade advent calendar! Now since I am not home to place the little felt ornaments on the tree myself, my mom sends me a picture of the calendar everyday! 15 more days until Christmas!
Fanning sister obsession! I love Dakota and Ellie!
A panda cappuccino
A Hello Kitty latte.... caramel, I hope!
34th Street, Hon! Hampden, Bohtimore!
Elf! Must watch at least once this Christmas season!

Now that the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is over, some of you still might be in awe with models and want to see more. Well I can help you with that! One of my best friends and active inspiration to this blog, Brooke Bernstein, has sent me this video a few minutes ago! Wow, don't brazilians just bring sexy back all the time. This video is Brazil at its finest: beautiful models, the playfulness of the beach, the ethnic music of brazilian streets where the men dance capoeira. This video just makes me want to travel to Brazil and visit all things good and Brazilian. Ipanema anyone?
Anyone else in love with this picture? More importantly, this outfit? I am in love with Rachel Zoe's Valerie heels. This cobalt trend is moving into the resort and spring collections, and I am loving it. Cobalt is so bold and has this "dare to be fabulous" persona to it. These shoes will look good with just about anything. Little black dresses, this white one, skinny jeans, and mini skirts! Check out Piperlime.com for these heels and more shoes by Rachel Zoe.

Out today, Topshop's new holiday campaign has Kate Bosworth singing "Winter Wonderland" standing on a piano in a beautiful red luxurious mid-length dress and jeweled heels. This video is absolutely stunning, and surprisingly cheerful! Kate does an amazing job singing too; I was really surprised that she sung so well. The theme I get from this campaign is utterly classic and sparking this old-fashioned glamour; the epitome of Old Hollywood Glam. Although it resembles this classic, sophisticated elegance I find it to be somewhat applicable to this time period. Watching this video made me imagine that I was at a Christmas ball where everyone is adorned in gowns and tuxedos, and drinking the finest champagne. Well a girl can dream, can't she? Here are some of my favorite pictures of the beautiful Bosworth, and her video.

Has anyone seen this website, Tobi? It has been all over Facebook recently; so, tonight I decided to see why. However, when scrolling through all of the pictures, everything started to look oddly familiar. I have seen all of these clothes on Nastygal.com months prior! I have even seen these models on Nastygal! Anyways, I am a little confused what is going on to be honest. Maybe it's Nastygal's outlet of all the clothes they didn't sell, or maybe it is a company copying Nastygal? This needs to be solved.
Anyways, I decided to show some real proof of what we're working with here.
The only thing that separates Nastygal from Tobi is that Tobi is less expensive! Anyways, I am not really sure what is going on, but I am going to stay true to my Nasty Gals over in LA. Let me know if you have an opinion about this whole debacle.
