STYLE: Fashion Bomb Daily - Holiday Cocktail Party

#OOTD: Holiday Cocktails With a Friends

I'm so happy to share this look with you. Yesterday, my blog mentor (in my head) Claire, from Fashion Bomb Daily requested fans to share holiday cocktail party looks  that incorporated silver, gold, and white as inspiration for her upcoming event, 'Cocktails With Claire' sponsored by Nivea.

Quickly, I whipped together this simply chic holiday look anchored by this STUNNING Alice +Olivia cropped sequin top and John Lewis pleated sequin skirt. I didn't know if the Fashion Bomb staff would choose my look, but sure enough, moments after I posted the look on my Instagram account (you following me? Well you should!), the Fashion Bomb posted the look on their Instagram feed! YUP! Momma - I made it! LOL!

Would you rock it?

Seriously, the love from the Fashion Bomb fans is overwhelming: 4200+ likes on Instagram, 1200 likes on Facebook, and tons of comments! Claire has really paved the way for independent fashion bloggers gaining success and being sponsored by major brands. It'll be great when I'm in that lane as well! Thanks for sharing my look Claire!

SHOE LOVE: Finding Wide Calf Boots

I've received so many compliments on these boots. As you can see I wore them in two MY STYLE segments. When my mom gave them to me, as a gift, I wasn't sure they were my style. But as I kept looking at them I decided to give them a try. Boy, was I pleased. 

These are mini-wedge faux suede boots with a wide calf from Jessica London. You don't have to be plus-sized to have wide calves. Seriously, what's wrong with shoe makers? Don't they know that most women have muscular calves?! Anyway, ordering boots online can alleviate the stress of finding wide calf boots. Below are some of my favorite sites. ENJOY!
