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!

Wedding Day Accessories

003

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

Happy Wedding Wednesday Everyone! I wanted to talk to you guys about some day of accessories I’ve picked up to bring the whole look together. Since I can’t share the dress yet, the least I can do is show the accessories, right? I’m not your conventional bride by any means. I don’t want something old, I don’t want to borrow something, I don’t want something blue, BUT I will take everything new. J That whole saying just never really made sense to me and I never thought it was something I would actually do, so I didn’t! (Don’t be afraid to break traditions in order to maintain your personality.) Also, can we talk about the garters? What is the point of that? I don’t get it nor do I want it. Just give me the essentials and I’ll be perfectly content. So, that is exactly what I purchased.

Shoes

Wedding shoes are beautiful and extravagant and their prices often reflect that. However, I know myself and I know that as soon as pictures are done, I’m throwing the shoes in the corner and rocking it barefoot all night. (You can call me gross, that’s fine) Heels are beautiful but that beauty often comes at a price! Instead, I opted for a lower heel (three and a half inches is my low) that was neutral enough that I know I would wear after the wedding for everyday occasions. Which is how I found these beautiful little babies. They’re definitely on the plain side but after the wedding celebrations, I can see myself pairing these with a pair of rose colored jeans and a blue and white striped buttoned down blouse. Ugh! I can’t wait to actually get some use out of these! I found these originally on Macy’s but I purchased them on Amazon for the same price (I like Amazon’s return policy more than Macy’s).

Hairpiece

This was too tempting to pass up. I knew I wanted a little something for my hair and knew I needed it to pack a punch of bling. Luckily, the boutique I purchased my dress at, had a variety of selection and this wasn’t too bad of a price! I’m really excited to see this pull together all of my bling on the big day!

Earrings

The bling doesn’t stop there. I got these beauties to compliment the hairpiece. I like the subtly of these earrings. They aren’t over the top and huge (like some of my other earrings can get). They are just enough sparkle! I picked these up at Nordstrom Rack for a great price, considering the brand.

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! 🙂
