My Favorite Winter & Holiday Wear
Whether you are searching for a new staple piece for winter, the perfect holiday party attire or New Year's Eve outfits that will wow, here are some of my favorites from some of my favorite DFW boutiques. These incredible pieces also make great gifts for any of the ladies in your life. I've also included my favorite female-owned Dallas-based fine jewelry line to complete your holiday outfit, serve as a year-round favorite piece or become the best holiday gift this season.
Carbon Thread is one of my favorite boutiques. They are a DFW, female-owned glam, glitz and rock-n-roll lifestyle boutique. They have so many to-die-for collection pieces that transition through the seasons. One of my favorite pieces in my closet is a custom Guns & Roses tee from their collection. Keep up with them here on Instagram.
• Cutout Leather Jacket - Black or White
These cutout leather jackets are the perfect statement pieces for the holiday season. Pair the white leather cutout jacket with an all black outfit, or go straight Johnny Cash and do an all black look with the black leather cutout jacket and a bold red lip.
•Fur Leather Jacket
This fur leather jacket is to die for. I felt badass and sexy in this best-of-both-worlds fur leather jacket. This outerwear piece is the perfect addition to your closet this winter.
Modern Meets Vintage
Modern Meets Vintage is one of the greatest trendy wear boutiques I have found. The two sisters that run the boutique are fantastic and their promise to their customers is to deliver budget-friendly, trendy pieces to their customers. Keep up with them here on Instagram.
This black puffer jacket is the softest puffer I've worn. It is the perfect snow bunny piece for winter. I like that it is a little shorter than some of the other puffers I've tried on.
•Green Leopard Bell Sleeve
This bell-sleeve green leopard top is beyond comfy and it is easy to dress up or down. Pair it with a black jean, booties and a bold lip to dress it up or play it down with a more nude lip and flats.
This black jumpsuit is a head-turner. It features the cutest ruffle details with an incredible open back and plunging sides. It is sure to be one of the sexiest pieces whether you are at a holiday party, winter wedding or seasonal gala if you wear it alone. Or if you need to make it a little less sexy, you can pair a shirt under it.
I have loved Accents boutique for almost a year. I have quite a few fantastic pieces. They were the first really great boutique I found when I moved to Dallas. They typically sell out of items at lightning speed so they don't always post all of their items online. If you see something on their Instagram you like that is not online, call their store and they can facilitate shipping. Otherwise, if you are in the DFW area, make sure you pop in to grab all of their best pieces. Keep up with them here on Instagram.
•Glitz Up The Night Dress
Talk about the perfect holiday party or New Year's Eve dress. Whitney loved the way this dress fit and it looked incredible on her. We were all oohing & ahhing when she walked out. You will definitely turn heads in this dress this holiday season.
• Black Holiday Top & Teddy Bear Coat
This cropped black holiday top is one of my favorite current items in her shop. It is cropped and festive with a little bit of metallic sparkle but could be transitioned for the whole fall and winter. The teddy bear coat is literally the softest thing I've ever worn. It is the perfect casual coat that can also be dressed up.
Pratishka Fine Jewelry
I am obsessed with Pratishka Fine Jewelry. It is a Dallas-based, female-owned jewelry store. She only uses ethically-sourced gems. She also believes that women shouldn't just wait on men to buy them jewelry. She also makes luxury jewelry affordable and attainable for everyone by removing those insanely high price points you will see at other jewelry stores. Whether you are looking for a great holiday season statement piece or a piece you can transition all season, you will find it here.
Let's say you're a single 30-year-old woman killing it in so many aspects - you deserve to treat yourself to jewelry. These also make great gift purchases from girlfriend to girlfriend, daughter to mother or anything of the sort. Of course, if you are a man searching for a great gift for your gal, these can be great gifts as well. Keep up with them here on Instagram.
•Eva Pearl Bouquet Diamond Cluster Ring & Annabeth Shades of Pearl Diamond Cocktail Ring
From the moment I saw these rings, I was in love. The pearl bouquet cluster ring is absolutely breathtaking and timeless. As is the similar but unique shades of pearl cocktail ring.
•Madison Draw the Line Baguette Diamond Band
This ring is another that totally stole my attention in her showroom. It has trendy baguette diamonds but is definitely a timeless piece. It is understated and classy.
•Annabeth Tapered Double Pearl & Diamond Ring
What can I say?! I am a huge fan of pearls. I think they are absolutely timeless, classy and gorgeous. This was another ring that just took my breath away. It would pair well
I obviously loved all of the rings, so I put them all on -- maybe not the most practical but definitely a good idea ;) They are all to die for!!!
