TWP Approved! - A Few of My Favorite Things featuring ASOS: Holiday Edition


So, we're smack dab in the middle of holiday season and the seasonal parties are in full swing! I've scoured through one of my favorite online retailers for a few things to add to your collection this holiday season.

Why? Because they're shiny and sparkly and they make me happy. Not only are these pieces great for your company holiday party, your best friend's Secret Santa gift exchange or your New Year's Eve situation, they're great for so many other occasions year round. You know I stay rocking sequin pants or leggings Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall!

I really stan for ASOS because they offer affordable, on trend, quality pieces that I can wear for just the season or for years to come. It, also, doesn't hurt that they stay having an additional 20% - 30% off! I will always and forever be here for a good sale.

Check out my top picks from ASOS by clicking 'More Werk'.

Memo 175: Playing The Field In Stripes and Paisley

By definition, a neutral is something that lacks color like white, grey and khaki tones. These colors normally pair well with a variety of other colors. The latter statement is the major key!

TWP Approved! - Lord & Taylor "Dress Address" Top Picks 2016

Exciting News! Read all the way until the end.

Short story.

My mother and I would go shopping EVERY Sunday after church. It was our ritual. Church, brunch and then shopping. We were notorious for shutting down a mall. When I was younger, I kind of hated the ritual and would pout as she spent what seemed like an eternity touching and examining every article of clothing in the store. That feeling soon changed. When I was old enough, I would throw her the peace sign, coordinate to see her when the mall closed and go off to shop in MY stores.

One store that we would visit more times than a little bit was Lord & Taylor. My mother is a dress fanatic. She believes in looking like a lady and you'll rarely see her in jeans. Leggings, yes. Jeans, absolutely not. Her aunt once told her that if she had the legs that my mother had (nice, big, juicy legs --thank you, genetics!), she would never cover them up and she doesn't.

So, these top dress picks from Lord & Taylor are dedicated to all the women out there who like looking like a lady and showing off a little leg.
