Pop. Fizz. Clink! with Swoozie's


The holidays bring out the stress in me.
It's easy to become overwhelmed with last minute holiday shopping and running all around town for party supplies. Just like holiday shopping, it goes without saying that being prepared earlier than expected is better for not just you, but your wallet too. You don't have to worry about items being out of stock and you can snag supplies with discount codes.

Speaking of discount codes, Swoozie's is offering my readers a 20% discount on ALL MERCHANDISE ONLINE.
Use code: NEWYEAR at checkout. This code is valid until 12/31.

Sidenote: did you catch yesterday's post? There's even a video of my New Year's shoot with my besties!

P.S. stay tuned for more photo-shoot fun with my besties on the blog next week! Apologies for dragging this out *insert eyes covered monkey emoji* (you guys know which one I'm talking about)
- I want to share them all with you as badly as you guys want to see them!

Lady In Red


I've always wanted a red dress. For the longest time.
It wasn't until this year that I decided to stop convincing myself I didn't need one and to finally make the purchase. I believe that every girl should own a LRD 'little red dress' in their closet. Most people live by the rule 'when in doubt, wear black' when it comes to holiday party attire. I believe red is a bold color to opt for for the holidays as well. I decided to bust out this comfy halter dress that I wore for my Halloween costume (here) paired with a slick leather jacket and these OTK boots on repeat.  

Who knew that shopping for a dress to wear on Halloween would motivate me to finally go through with it?
{ last seen here }

Sidenote: Today, I'm shooting my special collaboration I mentioned on my Instagram yesterday. Stay tuned for this shoot on Friday!

And it's What I Wore Wednesday, so be sure to link-up with us below :)

I mentioned on my sneak peek Instagram post last night with this quote: 
"I think that being good to people - you'll never regret that. Maybe you'll get walked all over, maybe you'll get tricked, maybe you'll get fooled, but I think it's so much better to be kind to people and to trust people rather than to have your guard up and say mean things to people. You never want to be the reason that someone else feels bad." - taylor swift

^ I... love this quote. I wish they were my words, but they're not. But it's so true. With the holidays in full swing, we tend to overlook the good people in our lives. Even though this should not just apply for the holidays, I believe it serves as a reminder for us all that we should be kind to people. Anyone, in general. After all, you never know what kind of battles they are fighting.


Wearing: dress: Forever 21 (ONLY $14!) | OTK boots: ℅ boohoo (sold out) similar here + here | leather jacket: Forever 21 (only $18!) | sunglasses: ℅ Ray Bans | lipstick: Revlon's 'Fire & Ice' | bangle bracelet: ℅ Honeybee Boutique (LOVE THESE) you can grab your own (or anything else from the boutique with $5 off your next order - use code: SIS5 at checkout) | earrings:  LuLu*s (ONLY 2 MORE LEFT!) |

On Crop of The World


... which, by the way, I totally am. 
I've been gravitating towards this combo as of late: cropped sweaters + skirts with a little flare. I headed home on Friday to reunite with my family and spend time with them for the rest of the year. My family and I are super close and we always have a great time when we are together. So yes, I'm feeling on crop of the world. 

For those who aren't a big fan of the crop top trend, another way to still wear crop tops without fully showing your stomach is to wear either a pencil skirt or a high-waisted skirt. By doing so, it'll create a flattering waistline, while still looking modest.

P.S. I'm giving away these cobalt blue 360 studs on my INSTAGRAM today!
Head on over to my IG to enter: @bygracelee

I felt inspired by these tassel garland decorations in my room and opted for a blue on blue combo. What do you guys think about this look?

Wearing: sweater: Forever 21 (if you want it a little loose, size up!) | skirt: ℅ TOBI (UM - it's $18!!) | vest: GroopDealz (it's BACK for $33! Get it before it's gone!) + here - also, this is not an herringbone vest, but I love this quilted one here (AND it's 33% OFF + FREE SHIPPING) | necklace:  Accessory Jane | renegade cluster bracelet: ℅ Stella & Dot | OTK boots: ℅ boohoo (sold out) similar here + here | lipstick: Revlon's 'Berry Couture' | earrings: ℅ Honeybee Boutique in cobalt | bangle bracelet: ℅ Honeybee Boutique (LOVE THESE) you can grab your own (or anything else from the boutique with $5 off your next order - use code: SIS5 at checkout) | aviators: Retro City Sunglasses (sold out) similar here + here | 

| tassel garland decorations:  Benevolent Jewels |
