This season, I decided to treat myself to a new black dress from Eva Mendes’ Collection for New York & Company. Mendes’ Holiday Collection officially launched on Dec 2, and I am so excited to feature this look with you today! Getting all decked out for the holidays doesn’t mean donning around in your PJs, but instead play around for the holidays! Eva Mendes designed so many wonderful styles for New York & Company this upcoming holiday season, and I must admit: I had a hard time choosing my favorites! Her whole collection is beyond beautiful, however, with so many parties, family gatherings and work obligations, I decided on a Little Black Dress (LBD) with a few fun adjustments from her collection.

Black and gold is a popular color combination right now hence I decided to pair my little black dress with a fun gold clutch. It’s a perfect way to show my holiday spirit without being too over-the-top. I also love the idea of styling your Little Black Dress with colorful accessories, such as shoes and make-up. For instance, add some red heels to your LBD and I guarantee you that you will turn heads as well. It’s a perfect way to jazz up your black dress.

Now you tell me: How would you style your Little Black Dress? As always, I would love to hear from you, and thanks so much for reading!

Much love.

Red-Lace-Jacket_Holidays_Gift Guide Under 100_What Would V Wear

Happy Friday, and thanks so much for stopping by! Can you believe it’s almost Christmas? To kick of the upcoming Holiday Season I decided to wear my red lace leather jacket, and take a couple of pictures in front of a Christmas tree. Red is such a festive color, and this jacket is truly exceptional. It is part of Vogue Magazine’s “30 Holiday Gift Ideas” at Macy’s in collaboration with Inc International Concept’s 30th Anniversary.

How are you planning on spending Christmas? Are you going on vacation, or are you like me, and spend it with your family at home? To me, this is the best part of the Holiday Season. Being with family. Christmas is also a nice reminder of what is really important in life: Our relationship with God and his son Jesus, who died for us so we can have everlasting life, and our relationship with our loved ones. I often remind myself of that because my relationship with God, and my family is very important to me. Sometimes you forget since we live in such fast-paced and often stressful times. So, let us remind ourselves to make this Holiday Season a SEASON of Thankfulness and Gratitude.  What do you think? Let me know by commenting below, and tell me how you will be celebrating Christmas, and which of my gift ideas (UNDER $100!) you like the best!

Happy Shopping & Much love!

Happy Friday, darlings! It is absolutely freezing in Chicagoland which means I’m fully geared towards sweater weather! But, truth to be told, I don’t want to live in sweaters and jackets all winter long! Hence I found some other ways to keep myself warm. We all know that jackets, sweaters, hoodies, etc. are the most common way to stay warm, next to layering, of course (!) but have you ever thought about ponchos?! They are fantastic and a much trendier alternative! I prefer my poncho big, as in “go big or go home”. Seriously, overwhelmingly over-sized ponchos are everything this winter!

PS: I’m completely make-up free today except for the red lipstick! Yet I wasn’t sure whether or not I should post a make-up free look on the blog. I feel very much vulnerable but at the end of the day I thought: Who cares?! This is me – like it or not. So, dear readers…You’re finally getting a glimpse of me, Vanessa, the girl who loves fashion OH SO much!

As always, thanks so much for reading and have a fabulous weekend!

See you back here on Monday!

NYE Lace Dress + GIVEAWAY!






Happy New Year’s Eve! With the beautiful weather we’ve had over the last couple of days I decided to dig out my summer dresses ONE more time before the brutal cold hits Chicago.

Fashion is a lot of fun when you have the freedom to be multifaceted, don’t you agree? I love getting up in the mornings because every day is different and gives you yet another opportunity to try something new…in this case pairing my blush lace dress with burgundy colored tights. Mixing these colors are so fun, and I truly never realized how amazing they actually look together (in my opinion, of course!).

What are your thoughts on this look?! I would love to hear from you!

PS: The lace dress is currently ON SALE for only $18.13 & be sure to enter my New Years Eve Giveaway below!
