I’ve spent way too much time trying to write something mildly insightful about velvet suits, but honestly all I can say is that I love suits.  I love velvet. I love velvet suits.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites below in case you share my affinity for this luxe take on suiting.

I first wore this gown to the Dior Gala I attended in Melbourne, Australia this past summer. I received so many compliments on the dress during the gala that I’m thinking it’s probably going to be New Year’s dress as well. It’s currently on sale as are so many other beautiful things. Below I’ve rounded up my favorite Cyber Monday deals.

Sam and I spent the long weekend putting up our holiday decorations. This year we decided for a subtle color palette of metallics and neutral tones with accents of vintage glass in pink and mint. For our wrapping paper I decided on these dark plaid and chevron patterns.  It has a more masculine feel buts looks really chic under the tree.  Below I’ve linked  more of my holiday decor picks.

I love that faux fur is no longer just having a moment but has become a wardrobe staple season after season. I stopped wearing fur, even vintage, a few years ago. (It’s a personal choice and not one I think anyone else has to make.) One of the biggest downsides of not wearing fur is that it’s an easy way to stay warm. As someone who defines cold as anything below 75, finding coats that keep me warm can be a challenge. Enter in this beauty. I picked out this faux fur coat for our trip to Shanghai, but since we didn’t end up going I decided to shoot it in 90 degree weather on rooftop in downtown LA. It did its’ job at keeping me warm and then some.  I’m looking forward to wearing it on our one and only snowy vacation this winter.

Below I’ve picked out a selection of my favorite faux fur coats. Many of the stores have already launched their holiday sales and most of the coats are very reasonably priced.  Feel free to indulge in a little selfish shopping before you’re swamped with gift guides.

I found my perfect dress for Thanksgiving. The high neckline, delicate sleeves and charming print make this Rebecca Taylor number a dream.

As many of you probably noticed I am not in Shanghai like I was supposed to be for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Unfortunately, the stories being reported about the Chinese government denying visas to show attendees is true (read about it here). I, along with other bloggers and the likes of Gigi Hadid and Katy Perry, was denied a visa and had to cancel our trip last minute. It was a huge disappointment because Sam and I had already planned out multiple dumpling tours, and even a dumpling cooking class for me to cure my unhealthy obsession with soup dumplings. I’m not sure when I will get another chance to go to China. However planning and thinking about a trip to a place so far away has put the travel bug back in me. As soon as we cancelled our trip, I immediately started thinking about our next destination.

Where have you guys always wanted to go? I’m thinking Sydney for my upcoming birthday or maybe Bali.
