Style File 11.30.11


I like when the holidays roll in, there are so many excuses to dress up. How pretty is the color of this blouse? It’s the perfect blue. So cute with the peter pan collar and ruffled front. Have you seen the Winter lookbook from Ruche? It is beautiful and so cute! You know what is even cuter than the lookbook? The video from the lookbook! I seriously watched it twice this morning.

Have you heard of 31 Bits before? They are an amazing Organization that is using fashion & design to empower women. 31 Bits work with women in Uganda who make paper beads. They buy the jewelry from them on a monthly basis and help sell them here in the US. You can find out how the organization is run and more information on their website. They would make the perfect christmas gift! Everything is beautiful and super well made. I am in love with my bracelet!

  1. I love the monochrome bottom half! I recently got a pair of tights that matches one of my festive dresses to a T, but was a little worried about being too matchy-matchy. Now I see it can be done!

  2. Head to toe gorgeous!

  3. I love the combination of bracelets. THey are so pretty!

  8. Such an awesome set of rich colours and textures. It looks so comfortable and elegant!

  9. The plum and blue together makes a lovely combination. I’ve seen a lot of “monochromatic” bottoms lately in the blogging loop…and I’m totally loving it! It’s just a fun way to make the top half pop and give yourself a longer legline. Very chic.
