Sometimes you just know!

Have you ever purchased an article of clothing just to accessorize it?  I recently did! 

On Black Friday as my family drove back to DC from a family visit to New York I logged into Twitter.  There was a tweet from Zoe Boutique.  

It mentioned a turtle neck.  A very soft turtleneck.  I clicked on the link.  It was black and white and long, with very long sleeves and great color blocking.

It was love at first sight and I knew right away this Graham and Spencer sweater would be perfect to accessorize with a set of MagnifiCuffs.

After just a couple weeks of pining, Ryan took the boys and me the day after my birthday to purchase the sweater at Zoe Boutique.

On December 21 it was an unseasonal 70 degrees and an absolute gorgeous day for a family trip to Old Town Alexandria.  My boys, the sun, a fresh breeze, and crowded sidewalks.  Delightful!   

When we arrived at Zoe Boutique it was a nice surprise to meet the owner and staff members in person after getting to "know" them on Facebook and Twitter over the past few months.  They were as lovely in person as I thought they would be and the entire experience was extremely pleasant.

Not only will I be shopping at Zoe Boutique in the future, I will also recommend them to friends and associates looking for contemporary clothing with amazing service. 

So what do you think?  Perfect sweater for MagnifiCuffs?!

Accessorizing Your LBD (Little Black Dress)

Ryan and I attended a wine exchange hosted by one of his clients last night.  I knew when we received the invitation that the restaurant it was held at has very soft lighting. 

With the lighting in mind, I felt my LBD with the subtle cowl neck was the perfect dress.  The A line cut with side ruching makes this dress my go to no matter how my body is or isn't working for me :)

Because this was the first time I met the majority of the guests, who were all aware of our upcoming feature on "Laura's Likes" on Fox5,

I wanted to shine as bright as our exciting news.   So this is how I did just that:

MagnifiCuffs, Round Shell earrings,  and the Clara Collection Hair Bow by Ungcredibows

What about that hair bow!?! 

You may recall UngcrediBOWS is the company that partnered up with us to "Go Gold" in September and donated 100%+ (!!! they rounded up to donate even more) of their proceeds of sales to Kyle's Kamps.

I'm in love with the owner and think UngcrediBOWS hair bows are incredible quality and great fashion pieces for gals of every age!  You can visit them here:

We've added some seriously bright sets recently so check out our store and see how you can sparkle this holiday season. 

Little black dresses are simple and elegant.  Based on how you accessorize your LBD you can either stand out in the crowd or blend in with the suits.  The choice is yours!

Happy accessorizing,
