Kamri Markworth |

December has rolled around again for another holiday season. Besides the food, presents and cheerful music, there is one very important part of this month… Christmas parties. With Christmas parties comes the stress of finding the right outfit. Well no need to worry because I’m here to help!

One of the BEST parts of dressing up during the holiday season is the opportunity to play with sparkles and sequins. Here are some ways to blow all the other women out of the water at your holiday party.

Show your stuff in these amazing sequin and studded dresses. The focal point will be your dress, therefore all you need is great neutral colored shoes and jewelry.

If you’d rather be comfortable with a more subtle dress, try something with a silhouette similar to these. All of the dresses above are classic yet sexy and great for any Christmas party. Pair it with a great shoe and bold accessories and you’ll be turning heads!

Don’t wanna wear a dress? A great alternative is a sexy skirt. The best way to dress up a skirt is to pair it with a great top. Some great options are a cute knit top (pictured above) or a bold sequined top. Make sure to balance your outfit with only one sequined piece whether it be your top or skirt. Throw on some great accessories and shoes and your ready to go!

Like I always say, heels are what can make an outfit even more spectacular. Put on a pair of these and feel like a million bucks. There is just enough sparkle to balance out your outfit yet conservative enough not compete with it.

The last thing you need is accessories. A stunning clutch or a combination of statement jewelry are all pieces required for a fabulous holiday outfit. Check out these amazing finds!!

Hope this gave you ladies some ideas for your upcoming holiday parties!!

She’s Got Style: Aussie, Aussie, Aussie… Here I Come!

by DG

In the honor of my decision to move to Australia this coming January, I thought it would be a fun idea to highlight Aussie fashion in this blog! One of the best parts of visiting Australia was getting to see all the amazing fashion. Growing up in a small town, I’ve never had the pleasure of experiencing fashion on a daily basis. While in Australia all I had to do was walk down the street and I would see ten different girls with ten different style and I loved it.

Australia had a very warm climate and a laid back lifestyle. Therefore the style you see girls wearing everyday is a reflection of that.

Cotton dresses and skirts are a very common style in Australian fashion because of the light and easy fabric. They have a great summer vibe and are great for mixing and matching. A lot of girls/women don’t just wear a regular sandal with this style. They pair a great ankle boot, heels, or an oxford flat. The choice of shoes and accessories are what make these outfits stylish!

Another great trend that I saw more than anything else was Grundge/Chic. Acid wash jeans, leather or jean jackets, and a great army boot are all things that can add the grundge side to any outfit. It is a blast putting opposite things together and making it look trendy.

My favorite part of the fashion in Australia was the high end fashion I saw. It took one simple stroll in downtown Sydney for me to realize that I loved this city. I looked to my left and saw Chanel and then to my right and saw Louis Vuitton… to say the least I was in love. As you can see, the two women above know how to dress. They are both wearing dresses but in completely different ways. The first girl paired a light pink tuxedo jacket with a black maxi dress. The second has a white form fitting cocktail dress on with an amazing pair of grey booties that have a white and green accent bow. A great pair of shoes can transform any outfit!

Aussie women aren’t afraid to dress for fashion and show it off. I am excited to be joining them. =)

I’ve also been researching some designers from Australia and I came across some great ones. If you want to check out any of their collections here are some links. Enjoy!

She’s Got Style: Just Five More Minutes!!!

by DG

Kamri Markworth,

I am certain I’m not the only one who loves to hit the snooze button about a million times every morning… right? Well, for all you sleepy heads out there who need that extra time, I am here to help your head. When I say “head” I mean your hair. Just because you got a few more minutes in doesnt give you an excuse to leave the house looking like you just rolled out of bed. There are plenty of ways to quickly tame your mane.


1. On the go curly

  • After you shower let your hair air dry for a while.
  • Apply mouse or gel to hold your curl.
  • Put your blow dryer on low and continue to scrunch your curls as you dry. (Don’t have to dry all the way)
  • You can either wear a ponytail after or leave your hair down for a wavy, curly look.


2. The “Lauren Conrad”

  • This is a simply and sweet way to get your hair out of your face.
  • Let hair air dry and curl small sections with a barrel curling iron.
  • Pull back small sections on each side of your part.
  • Either braid or just softly twist downward and hold in place with bobby pins.
  • Leave the rest of your hair down or you can pull into a loose, low ponytail.


3. Sleek cheerleader ponytail

  • A cute ponytail placed at the crown of your head has never gone out of style.
  • This can be a “skip a shower” hair style.
  • Apply a small bit of shine serum to your hair
  • Pull all your hair back and comb all the bump’s out
  • Pull tightly into a hair band and secure.
  • Apply a coat of hairspray to contain fly-away’s


4. The Infamous Messy bun

  • This is the easiest way to get out of styling your hair for the day, simply because it suppose to look somewhat messy!
  • This is another “skip a shower” style.
  • Comb hair back and secure with a hair band.
  • Shape into a bun and pull tight.
  • Hair outside of the band doesn’t have to look perfect either! How easy was that?


5. Three Barrel Crimp

  • Blow dry or air dry hair
  • Use the three barrel crimper to add some demension to your hair.
  • Its a quick and easy way to get out of straightening your hair!
  • Crimp hair in small sections starting from the top.
  • Only do the top two – three layers and leave the rest straight underneath. (or you’ll have serious 80s hair!)


6. Fishtail Braid

  • This is an easy yet different way to braid your hair!
  • Pull hair to the side you want your braid to sit.
  • Divide hair evenly in half.
  • Pull very small pieces from the outside of each section and pull to middle.
  • Combine that hair to the insdide of the same section you pulled it from.
  • Continue doing this until you get to the bottom and then secure with a hair band.
  • You should have a unique looking braid when finished.
  • It doesnt have to look perfect!

7. When in doubt… use accessories!

  • I love using hair accessories to vamp up my style!
  • Anything from head bands to hats can be an alternative way to make a plain poneytail or just tosseld hair look stylish.
  • Throw one of these on and head out the door in no time!

Well I hope this helped anyone who loves their snooze button more than most!

She’s Got Style: One Kardashian Gets It Right In My Book

by DG

Style Icon: One Kardashian gets it right in my book.

Kim Kardashian has been surrounded by a media frenzy following her recent divorce to Kris Humpheries. BUT in my opinion, Kourtney Kardashian is the most level headed and smart one. SO with that being said, I wanted to share how much I admire Kourtney’s taste in fashion.

Kourtney has a sophisticated, chic and fashion forward style. She isn’t afraid to show off her body or wear sky high heels. That is what enjoying being a woman is about… right?!? I love to watch what Kourtney wears to get idea’s for my own wardrobe. Here are some looks that I love!

Both of these looks are great because Kourtney has paired a bold skirt with a black shirt and heels. In the second look, she has black tights on as well as a red purse. She has balanced each look by wearing one bold colored piece with a neutral black.

Another part of Kourtney’s style that I love is her jackets. She knows how to pair great jackets with a variety of outfits and make them work! Both of these looks are chic and comfortable.

There is nothing I love more than a great over the knee dress. Kourtney is spotted a lot on the red carpet and around the city in dresses. She knows how to wear them in a sexy, yet appropriate way. In both of these looks she has worn just the right amount of accessories to compliment the dresses.

These last two look’s are what make Kourtney such an amazing style icon in my book. She is fashion forward and never afraid to wear sky high heels. Between the high waisted shorts and the yellow printed jumpsuit, Kourtney proves that high fashion can be worn every day. Plus… look at those AMAZING shoes!!

Hopefully you have been inspired by this tribute to Kourtney Kardashian’s fashion… I know I have!!!
