Holiday Giveaway! It was a Black Tie affair

It's not everyday that you get invited to such an honorable charity event. And this was something super close to our hearts. It's a charity that helps fight Aids and saves lives, called Acria. My husband has been on the board of this charity for a few years now and when we were invited to the annual holiday dinner Honoring The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, Judith Light, and Casey Fremont at the Armory in NYC. My mind immediately wondered what I was going to wear. It was a black tie event and I knew I'd need something amazing. 

From the first fitting to the actual event!

We reached out to our friend, Jason Wu, who also happens to be on the board of Acria. He was happy to dress me in something super chic and I was honored. I was invited to visit his showroom and try on dresses. It was a girls dream. I arrived to find an entire fitting room full of the most beautify designed and constructed gowns. Let's just say I didn't have any problems finding something I loved. But I knew it from the moment I slipped it on that this was the one! 

But then, when it came to accessories, I had to match the equally beautiful gown with something pretty spectacular. That is when my friends at Cleo NYC, a merchandiser for Chloe and Isabel, reached out to help style my look. I just loved the gorgeous and super on-trend sparkle choker and matching bracelet. This set is perfect for a holiday party, gift for a loved one or stylish enough to dress up an everyday type look. Enter below to win the same look that I wore to the event!

Hot Mom, Mom Jeans

Yes! Mom jeans are back and they are better than ever.

I actually never would have thought that I would like this trend. I mean come on. We all know mom jeans are the ugliest and most unflattering jeans from the 90's. But as the trend started getting more main stream the more I realized that maybe its not really so bad after all. The best part is that the high waist covers your mommy tummy! Is that why they are called mom jeans in the first place? I'm not sure. But I was shopping in Soho one day and happened to see a cute pair of mom jean cut off shorts. They had all the elements of cool stylish jean shorts but they were high waisted and had the label Levi's "Weddie Fit"... I thought, thats strange? But gave it a go anyway. Well, lets just say my husband approved of these mom jeans! They really flatter your figure in all the right spots. They cover up the waist (or mommy tummy) and elongate your legs. I'm only 5'3" so I was psyched. For now I'm a fan of mom jeans however I suspect this trend might not stick around long. 

What's your take?
