PA Live: Three Holiday Looks Using Same Pieces

This holiday look book is all about partying like a rock star this holiday season, but without buying a whole new wardrobe. I partnered up with LuLu*s, one of my favorite online-shopping boutiques, to create  three holiday looks reworking some of the same pieces. Here’s a pic from the shoot from WBRE’s PA Live! airing today at 4pm!!

From Left: Monica (host), Theresa (model & Trend Hungry Contributor), Stef (model & reporter), Jessie (me!)

Unfortunately one of models had to bounce really quick, so we’re missing a key look that ties both looks together, but it airs today and I’ll post the vid later for the full effect.

Take Note: Cranberry color means item repeats in other look(s).

Look 1 – Casual-Christmas - perfect for a family party or staying in with good friends.

Bright Lights, Big City Silver Top, $34.00 at LuLu*s.
Moves Like Jagger Bright Green Jeggings, $40.00 at LuLu*s.

Dynamo Strapless Red Dress, $30.00 at LuLu*s.

It’s almost Thanksgiving. I’m already lighting a pumpkin pie candle and polishing my nails in a cranberry -sauce shade. If you’re leaving you humble abode for the holiday, or future holidays, you don’t want to show up empty-handed. Wine is a staple gift. i love drinking it, but it’s kind of been done as a hostess gift, ya know?

Here are some fashionable, wine-inspired gifts that I’m featuring today on PA Live!  The wino in your life will be quite pleased!

Cork Topper  & Glass Charms

So affordable and such a cool gift. They’ll def think you spent way more than $8!

Tag: Drinking Buddy Charms & Topper, $8.00 at Umbra.com.

Wine Woozie 

This is for the drinker who likes to relax, avoid spills, and keep wine an even temp. Perfect for lounging in the hot tub, bath tub, or chilling with friends. It identifies your glass so no one will be swapping spit. Gross, but true.
