So long black heels. This fall and winter is all about (bright) red heels, and these red booties are a definite must this season. Not only is the color ‘red’ a show-stopper but these booties are actually very comfortable, too. This classic silhouette is anything but ordinary. I’ve paired my booties with a pair of jeans and a shaggy faux fur coat to keep me warm. Temps in Chicago have drastically dropped, and I’m still trying to get used to this cold weather. Each and every year I seem to have such hard time with Chicago winters. My husband is from California, and we keep asking ourselves: “Why are we still here?”

Anyhow, I wanted to THANK YOU all for your love and support! Jalisa, editor and founder of the StyleContour recently nominated me with the Liebster Award, and I’m just so humbled by it. Below are some questions from Jalisa which I finally answered. Hopefully this will paint you a better picture of who I am. ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s your favorite color? Turquoise.

Cats or dogs? Dogs. I have three dogs and love them!

Tea or Coffee? Coffee. A latte that is. My coffee usually contains more milk than coffee but I still consider myself a coffee drinker.

Favorite designer? Chanel.

Favorite place to shop? Nordstrom, and various online sites.

Favorite Food? Asian, i.e. sushi. What can I say? It’s in my roots.

Favorite season? Summer. Like I mentioned above: I have a hard time with the cold. We don’t get along. Period.

What do you like most about yourself? Being a mother to my 4 year old son. He makes my life complete.

What’s your favorite perfume or body mist? Chanel “Mademoiselle” perfume.

How would you define your style? My style is feminine with a little bit of an edge.

Thank you again, Jalisa for the questions and the Liebster Award. Should YOU have any additional questions for me, simply drop me a line in the comments!

As always, thanks so much for reading & have a fabulous Monday!

Much love.

    I love the red booties. So much more fun than basic black. You look fantastic as always. I’m not too big of a fan of cold weather myself and I have lived in Chicago my entire life. The last two winters have been the worst. It is making me finally want to move as well. Have a great day!

    I love every piece in this outfit! The jeans look perfect on you! I’m in love with the eye-catching red booties! Have a great week, Vanessa!


  15. November 23, 2015 / 12:31 PM

    It was a pleasure nominating you, beautiful, you are so talented and such a sweet person, it was a no brainer ๐Ÿ™‚ Being a mom is certainly the most rewarding and role their is and from what I’ve seen and read about you, you’re doing a terrific job with your little guy ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t really like the cold either. If the fall weather we got here was the temps we’d get for winter, I’d love that! But, sadly we know that’s just not the case. I mean, I love watching the snow fall and being all cozied up when there’s a snow storm, but I absolutely loathe the aftermath.

    As for your outfit, you look absolutely gorgeous! I love the pops of red, those boots are gorgeous! I hope you have a wonderful day and week ahead, beautiful friend! Sending much love your way1

    Chanel “Mademoiselle” is one of my favorites too!
    I absolutely love this outfit Vanessa, perfect red booties and white fur combo! Definitely a city chic style!

    Love the red boots! They add so much fun to your look, and you styled them so well. Thanks for sharing about your style! Can’t believe you live in Chicago and hate the cold so much. I think I would die in your winters. P.S. unfortunately due to some personal reasons, we had to cancel our trip. ๐Ÿ™

    Vanessa, I see you are ‘Seeing Red’ at the moment, those pepper-hot red booties with the shaggy white faux fur coat are fab, both add great colour to your ensemble and elevate the jeans and top combo, Looking ‘Hot To Trot’ as always! Good to know more about you via this Q&A, I love Asian food- give me a Wok and Sesame seed oil and I’m happy! X
