Fashionista Spotlight

What do you want for Christmas? Your two front teeth? A hippopotamus? What about festive red flats like this Fashionista’s pair? The holiday season is my favorite time of year, but it seems to fly by before we even have time to completely enjoy it. One way to show your holiday sprit is through your fashion choices. This doesn’t mean it is appropriate to don your ugliest Christmas sweater for a day of classes, but take a cue from this Fashionista’s subtle hints of holiday. This Fashionista’s cheerful and charming red flats and matching details in her C. Wonder jacket captured the essence of the holiday season.

CF: What are your tips for dressing for the holiday season?

LS: Adding a little bit of sparkle with sequins or a fun piece of jewelry is always a cute and easy addition to a holiday outfit!

CF: So which celebrity would you most like to share a closet with?

How To: Take a cue from this Fashionista and look for bright red pieces to use as accents in an ordinary outfit. This Fashionista just wore a dark blue pair of jeans paired with a light chambray shirt and layered colorful pieces to add a little spice. Accessories like scarves and necklaces are perfect for looking festive without overdoing it. Remember, 'tis the season!
