8 Jewels of Christmas

Season's Greetings, Lovelies! 

You may recall our 8 Days of Christmas posts from last year, well, we had so much fun and received a ton of great feedback that we are doing it again. This time with the gems!

8 Jewels of Christmas kicks off with Amethyst and Emerald, two colors of royalty

[ Amethyst ]
Royal purple is my favorite color, but I hate is a strong word really, really don't like to wear it. But the Dr. prescribed some fabulous picks! Can we start with the Walter Steiger pumps? I just can't get over the bell curve heel. These are one of those wear anywhere platform pumps and...BARNEYS IS HAVING A SALE! Santa, baby, slip a pair under the tree, for me!
You can shop high to low with these favs: Side Cutout Platforms by Walter Steiger, $449; 100 DEN amethyst tights, $25 (limited quantity available); and "Goes and Goes" by MAC, $18.

[ Emerald ]
Soirée season, like wedding season, always has us hunting for that perfect dress. You know, the one that will catch the light on all the right places. Aaaand, not catch the light in all the not-so-right places. Wearing emerald to your holiday parties is not only festive, but adds a mysterious elegance. In this dress by Alice + Olivia, there's no need for mistletoe!

I love these runway looks from Alice + Olivia and Jason Wu, and am happy that I can add a touch of sultry emerald glam to my daily color palette with Humid by MAC, $15.  I hope you'll try this look with me!

We hope you aspire to royalty with our amethyst and emerald picks! Stay tuned for more jewels for your holiday. Cheers!
