Favorite Site Sales + My Picks For Cyber Monday


In real life, I am a girl who lives in nothing but casual basics.  Give me jeans, t shirts and cowgirl boots, and I am ready to go!  For your Cyber Monday saving pleasure, I've pictured a few items I could not live without, as well as a few I'd love to have. The cap toe flats I have put many clients in, and if you are someone who is on their feet during the day, I promise they are the most comfortable flats on the planet.  The Rag & Bone booties; well I don't own a pair, but I know they are the hottest thing since sliced bread. Those and the J. Brand flare jeans.

Christmas Buy For Yourself

Clockwise: J Brand Love Story Flare Jeans, Bee Earrings, Three Floor Dress, Star Blaze Earrings, No Shit Givers Tee, Rag & Bone Newbury Booties, Toe Cap Shoes, Bobi Gauze Blouse, Stuart Weitzman Black Suede Bootie, Baller Tee, Charlie 1 Horse by Lucchese Boots.

Here's a collection of several of my favorite little sercies. I recently purchased Jessica's watercolor lips print for my home office renovation.  A few of my peeps will be getting the holiday Mr. and Mrs. Cocktail glasses or the gold urchin which is just about the most fun thing in my life since wearing jammies all day for a movie marathon over Baileys in my coffee.  Really hoping someone in my life will deem me worthy of the Eugenia Kim or Loeffler Randall.

Clockwise: Zebra Dish, Loeffler Randall Tote, Vino 2 Go Insulated Tumbler, Gold Urchin, Lips Watercolor, Eugenia Kim Fedora, Monogrammed Pillow, Mr. and Mrs. Cocktail Glasses

You Dress Me

Melvin Born This Way Dog Tag, Melinda Maria, Grecian Beer Ring, Chelsea Charles Count Me Happy Bracelet, Lucky Brand Shorts, Charlie 1 Horse Boots

I am often asked for suggestions on how to look unique in every day attire.  Here in the Queen City there are molds that can sometimes dictate every fad from what we wear to what we eat to what kind of car we drive.  My general reaction to those fads is to run the other way as fast as possible. Not quite that dramatic, but nevertheless, my response as it pertains to dress is to wear A) typically whatever everyone else is not wearing and B) whatever makes me feel good. Admittedly, I'm obsessed with my cowgirl boots. I wore them all winter.  It is approaching 90 degrees outside, and I am now wearing them with jean shorts.  A reader recently recommended I pair my boots with white shorts. Well, here it is, my outfit for the day.  So, You Dress Me. Would love to hear your thoughts and have some fun with this.  Tweet me. Email me at thequeencitystyle@yahoo.com. Message me on FacebookInstagram, however!

I'm hoping for some really awesome outfits!
