Christmas Party OOTD

Shirt : Forever 21  |  Skirt  : New York & Comapny  |  Heels : Nordstrom  |

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

‘Tis the season for holiday parties galore! I recently attended a company holiday party and thought I’d share my outfit for the night. We had a semi-formal dress code for the event so I didn’t go all out. I feel like this skirt classes up any top you pair it with. Also, the color is absolutely perfect for this time of year. I’m not big on the traditional red and green colors for Christmas so this burgundy is perfect. This top is great but be sure to wear something underneath. It’s a loose fit and sometimes gets a little too loose, if you catch my drift. The heels I paired it with were a lower heel than I’m accustomed to so they were perfect to wear all night. Luckily, it hasn’t snowed here yet this year so this was the perfect outfit for the occasion. Great night, great people, great fashion!

Lookbook / Outfit Ideas featuring Warby Parker x Leith Clark

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I’m so excited to talk to you guys today about this wonderful brand, Warby Parker, as they announce their newest line. For those who don’t know, Warby Parker is an eyeglass and sunglasses designer. There are a million designers out there but there is something special about Warby Parker that I can’t get enough of! They have amazing selections, great quality, and a great cause to back up their brand.

(They have a great and unique selection that you really can’t find anywhere around here. Since they do not have a location in little ole Iowa, it’s a great thing that they offer to ship 5 pairs of glasses to you for free to try on!)

Warby Parker teamed up with Leith Clark for an amazing new line that I am so excited to tell you about. The new collection just went live today! Use this link here to peruse their latest and greatest styles! One of my favorite parts about this company is the hospitality and utilitarian values they hold. For this collection, they are donating to an organization called Girl Up. Girl Up is a campaign run by the United Nations and encourages girls to raise awareness and funds for UN programs. It’s a really great program so I’ll leave a link here for those who would like to learn more about it. Every pair of frames that Warby Parker sells, is a pair they will distribute to those in need. Such a great cause with such incredible style. Who could say no?

Now on to the fashion! My three top favs are what I wanted to talk about today: Fleta, Valda, and Zelda. I don’t know about you but I think I love the names as much as I love the style! I wanted to show you how these styles can be meshed with so many different kinds of styles. A lot of the time, when people see such an extravagant style, such as Fleta, that can steer them away. I wanted to show you how you can pair these shades with everyday outfits and your own personal style.

OOTD – Client Meetings

Blazer : Ralph Lauren  |  Pants : Charlotte Russe  |  Heels : Nordstrom  |

Necklace (similar) : Forever 21

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I’m a big believer of “If it ain’t black, put it back on the rack.” However, when I have to dress business professional, I feel like a boring blob if I wear the typical black corporate pantsuit. Which is why I LOVE this statement blazer. It’s the perfect piece to satisfy my need for color. Of course, the color doesn’t stop there. The shirt and necklace pair so well together that I hardly find myself wearing one without the other. I love the combination of colors here. Finding colors to compliment this neon yellow green color is often a challenge; but, I think this necklace and shirt combination do a fantastic job! I paired these with a white jean and tied it all together with these suede black heels. They’re the perfect height for me, just enough to get the point of a heel across without me having to break an ankle! I love this outfit for when I have a busy day packed with professional clients. Sadly, most of these items where purchased many moons ago and were difficult to find but I think I found suitable dupes. Check them out if you are interested in recreating this look! 🙂
