Monday Musings: Seeing Red

 For over a month now I've been in constant creative mode. As I gear up for biggest project of my styling career...

The Look for Less: Cutout Booties

Christmas Eve while picking up last minute gifts I came across a chic pair of Cutout Ankle Booties that reminded me of the fab pair Christine Centenera rocked a few seasons back.

My Travel Diary: December in Middleburg

 Here's a look at a few of my personal photos from my Middleburg Travel Diary... 


So it seems as though I have taken most of December off from blogging. It's been a busy month. A work trip, finals, prepping for Christmas and a sick Mister Emerson. At the beginning of the month I stranded at the airport for almost 48 hours because of delay after delay. But once I finally arrived in Middleburg all the airport drama seemed to fade away. Aside from Nashville I think that gorgeous town is going to be become a 2nd... or 3rd home.

Chic November

What I'm loving right now... 


This post is a bit different than what you usually see here on HOLY CHIC FASHION BLOG... 
I've yet to find time to finish the layout for my cooking blog: The Blonde in the Kitchen so I thought I'd start sharing a recipe each Tuesday in honor of Tasty Tuesday! First up Chicken and Gnocchi Soup. One of my favorites that I make year around...

Photo Diary: A Queen Within

Saturday I awoke bright and early for a day trip to St. Louis for a book signing at Saks with author and photographer Anne Deniau. Her discussion about working with the late Alexander McQueen was both inspirational and emotional. 

Model Behavior 2013: ADEAM

Thursday night I had the opportunity to sit front row at the ADEAM SS14 fashion show in Nashville, TN. Hanako Maeda's designs were so ethereal. While each piece was completely wearable and gorgeous, the sheer pieces and cropped tops were my favorite...

Duck. Duck. Boot...

My obsession with outwear, riding boots, flannel, puffer vest has somehow caused me to have a constant craving for a pair (well maybe several chic pairs) of "Duck" Boots.

The Cheap yet Chic Find: "Happy"

$16.90 vs. $1,190
During the FW13 Fashion Week we were all "happy", we fell in "love", felt "cool", asked for "help" in the most fashionable way possible,  decided we were "hot" and choose "you". This is just what  happened during the LANVIN Show. If you have no idea what I'm talking about maybe you should review the collection HERE. For FW13 it's been all about making a statement in the most literal way possible. With WORDS of course...

Cats & Bats

While I didn't have a chance to Instagram a pet photo for the Forever 21 Bats and Cats Photo challenge... I have to say the photos were adorable. The Batman and Cat Woman pieces from the DC licensed collection that inspired the "turn your pet into a bat" contest are totally awesome!!! My "nerdy" chic side needs everything...

The Cheap yet Chic Find: Cut-Out Booties

It's been a while since I've posted a a "cheap yet chic find". And what better way to get back into the swing of things and maybe convince those fall temperatures to finally arrive than shopping for one of my must-haves for the season: the cut-out bootie.

Insta-Fashion Week

As a super busy fashion mom constantly on the road my fashion week has consisted of streaming shows, searching and vogue for the latest coverage via my iPhone and iPad while having lunch, at pediatric appointments, sitting in school traffic and late in the night after my very sleepy little nugget finally falls asleep. Here are a few of my fave pieces from NYFW so far that have made it on to my instagram...
