    The much anticipated moment before the new year has arrived - Pantone has announced the official 2015 Color of the Year! Hues from past years include Emerald and Radiant Orchid, but 2015's shade is a "subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth." We would describe Marsala as a brick red with earthy undertones, reminiscent of red wine. This hue is definitely going to be spicing up our wardrobes in the form of textured dresses, ankle boots, and sophisticated blouses. In honor of the 2015 Color of the Year, we picked a few of our favorite pieces reminiscent of this rich color! marsala-clothing

    Marsala is the perfect way to add a bold, yet refined touch to your outfit. Complementary to all skin tones, we love the idea of dressing up a pair of Marsala ankle boots with a neutral shift dress, or cinching a casual cardigan and blouse with Marsala belt. If you want to make a statement, throw on a coat or jacket in this elegant hue or don a Marsala dress or lounge pants! We love this color paired with soft grey and blue tones as well as other warm reds like golden oranges, soft coral, and apricot shades.MARSALA-OUTFIT

    Whether you're adding this color to your wardrobe, wearing it in the form of lush lipstick or blush, or integrating it into your home decor the possibilities are truly endless - we can't wait to start wearing this gorgeous color! How are you planning on wearing this hue in 2015? Let us know!

    It's the most wonderful time of the year! Why? Simply because all the festivities serve as the perfect excuse for us to come together with friends and family, cook up a sweet or savory treat, and (this one is our favorite) get gussied up in elegant dresses! Holiday-ready looks are aplenty this season with tons of tulle, shining jewels, and vintage styles to choose from, but sometimes the hardest part is putting together an ensemble that will ensure you make an entrance. From metallic colors to a classic LBD, you will be inspired by some of our favorite fashion bloggers who are turning heads! 

    Rachel from Pink Peonies dons a red, fuzzy sweater reminiscent of the quintessential holiday flower, poinsettia. From her red lips to her red-bow vintage heels, the poinsettia red adds a beautiful and vibrant touch to her snow white surroundings. Her full tulle skirt keeps her look feminine and her outfit is perfect for your dinner with friends this season, or even to brave the falling snow! pink-peonies

    This blue and gold metallic A-line dress is absolute holiday perfection. We are swooning with how Kendi, of Kendi Everyday, paired her dress with little gold touches in her waist belt and her clutch. Metallic colors can be a bold statement that would be absolutely wonderful for a holiday office party. Pair your own metallic pieces with simple touches like Kendi, and you'll be the belle of the belle. kendi-everyday

    The stunning A Curious Fancy delights in an all red midi dress. We love everything about this dress from the playful textures of lace and mesh to the vintage styled high neckline and sleeves. Those dark berry hued heels finish off this beauty for any holiday outing. How romantic! Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

    Who doesn't love glitter? Atlantic Pacific's Blair styles her chocolate brown sequined pants with a snow white long sleeve blouse and an oversized bow. This elegant look is both refined yet relaxed and perfect for any holiday soiree! sequin-pants

    Lastly, the gorgeous Tanesha of Girl With Curves graces us with the perfect LBD for the holidays. The hint of polka dot mesh, sweetheart neckline, and darling full skirt make up this an essential little black dress. Pair your own LBD with a clutch and cozy overcoat to complete your party-ready look! girl-with-curves

    We are just giddy with style glee over here! With these gorgeous girls and their holiday inspiration looks, we just know you are now prepped for your own holiday parties. We have more style inspiration for those of you who just can't get enough. Now, go ahead and get to styling! Happy holidays!

    Picture this: you and your loved ones cozied up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate warming your hands and your favorite holiday movie lighting up the room. To us, that sounds like the perfect winter evening! Through the hustle and bustle of trimming the tree, Christmas shopping, and putting up the twinkling lights, quality time to enjoy the festivities with loved ones can get a bit lost. To make sure we spend a little extra time with our near and dear, we put together a list of some of our favorite holiday movies so you can enjoy a night in with those you love.

    1. It's A Wonderful Life (1946): A true holiday classic, this film captures our hearts year after year. The timeless film details George Bailey's trials and tribulations which lead him to discover the true meaning of Christmas. Cue the "awwww's"! It's_A_Wonderful_Life

    2. Love Actually (2003): Who could forget this lovely Christmas-themed rom-com? With its ensemble cast weaving into each others' lives, we can't help but watch this date-night worthy movie over and over. Warning: you may need a tissue close by! love-actuall

    3. A Christmas Story (1983): You won't "shoot your eye out" with this classic. The childhood story of Ralphie and his desperate desire for his beloved BB gun introduces us to his quirky family and their Christmas shenanigans. This film plays on repeat on Christmas Day and we absolutely love it! A Christmas Story dare tv

    4. Elf (2003): "Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?" After leaving the North Pole, Buddy finds himself in search of his real family in the busy city of New York. The film starring Will Ferrel and Zooey Deschanel is definitely at the top of our list of must-watch films during the holiday season. elf-movie-christmas-jon-favreau-will-ferrell

    5. How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000): This Dr. Seuss classic is brought to life in this classic comedy starring the very silly Jim Carrey. The Grinch is the ultimate... well, grinch! Through his attempts to ruin Christmas, he meets Cindy Lou Who who does her best to change his perspective of the holiday. The perfect amount of heartwarming moments and humor, this film will win over viewers of all ages.kinopoisk.ru

    6. A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965): This short musical animation is perfect for when you want to sing along! Our favorite Peanuts gang takes us on another adventure as Charlie Brown encourages those around him with what Christmas is all about. We promise you'll be smiling the whole film through!???????????????????????????????

    We can't wait to slip on some cozy socks, pop some popcorn, and get lost in these romantic and fantastic classics. If you get through this list, don't forget to check out last year's list of favorites!

    We're in the midst of the holiday season, and we're guessing that you are also seeing your schedules fill up with a variety of seasonal engagements. From a friend's dinner party to a night of holiday crafting, we love the extra time we get to spend with our nearest and dearest. The one rule we always follow when it comes to attending a soiree is never showing up empty handed. While we love baking an extra dessert or bringing along a bottle of wine, sometimes the hostess that goes above and beyond deserves something even more special. Here are a few of the hostess gifts we'll be toting this season! 

    For the hostess that goes above and beyond in her meal preparations, we adore this cookbook holder. Simply choose a old favorite or new recipe, place your cookbook on the holder, and easily prepare your dish! From a sweet holiday treat to a savory batch of garlic mashed potatoes or roasted chicken, your hostess will be able to whip anything up with ease! 

    The hostess with an appreciation for antiques and all things vintage will beam when opening a box containing Letters of Note. The book contains a collection of over 125 letters from noteable figures from history including Emily Dickinson and Albert Einstein. In addition, the book is filled with gorgeous portraits, artwork, and will have any vintage-lover swooning. 

    Many places are covered in a blanket of snow, but your hostess can still add a floral touch to her space with a gorgeous Rifle Paper Co. botanical print. Hand painted in stunning color, we love this print for adding a pop of color to any nook or desktop, and it's the perfect way to brighten up a winter day. 

    A sweet scalloped stand is perfect and versatile way to add a special touch to any room! The fashion-loving hostess can easily use it to display her most treasured pieces of jewelry while the hostess with an undeniably rustic aesthetic can use it to host a myriad of candles. Our favorite use? We love this stand as a way to show off a tasty collection of hors d'oeuvres or display a perfectly frosted cake. 

    If the hostess your celebrating with is well versed in travel and loves to spend a weekend jetsetting to somewhere new, a collection of travel-inspired coasters by Rifle Paper Co. are certain to impress! This collection of coasters featuring exotic and metropolitan destinations is not only a thoughtful present, but is something that guests can enjoy as well as they sip on a seasonal cocktail or glass of eggnog! 

    May your parties be both merry and bright this season! For more gift ideas, stop by our gift guide to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list.
