Send the Trend Style Challenge



I am so excited to share with you today that I am taking part in the Send the Trend Style Challenge.  Part of the reason for my trip into NYC last week was to meet up with the lovely ladies from Send the Trend & to choose the accessories I would use for this challenge.  I am competing with some other fabulous bloggers & the winner will get to appear on the QVC television show, Inspired Style!  

This was such a fun challenge & I'm honored to have been selected to participate.  It would mean so much to have your support - you can vote for me here.

We got to pick from two tables full of beautiful jewelry & headpieces and then style them into an outfit.  I was immediately drawn to this colorful sparkling necklace + these fun stackable bracelets.  I decided to go for a festive holiday look to show that even if you don't have the money to buy a new party dress this season, you can easily use statement pieces like this to give new life to that LBD that's hanging in your closet!  Another bonus?  These jewels will look just as amazing in the spring & summer months when paired with a classic white shift.








What I'm wearing:
c/o Oasis dress (on sale here), c/o Send the Trend necklace (here) & bracelets (here), ALDO pumps (on sale here), Nails: Essie Berry Naughty, Lips: Maybelline Fifth Ave Fuschia

*And there's a little something for you too...if you go to this page & register at Send the Trend, you will receive a $5 credit towards your first purchase.  They have some amazing handbags, accessories, and even beauty products, at really affordable prices...so be sure to check it out!

Gorgeous look! Love how you paired the stunning jewelry with a basic black dress. Really made the jewelry the focus of the outfit.

I love it!

What do you do to get your hair to look like that? I have curly hair like you do, and I just have no clue. I'm so dumb about hair.

Hi Abby! I first blow my hair dry straight and then use a 1" clampless curling iron and wrap small sections of hair around, twisting away from my face. Once the curl has set & my hair is cooled, I run my fingers through it so it doesn't look too perfect. Hope that helps! :)

xo,
Kimberly
