One last celebrity look post for the month! Sofia Vergara showed off a sexy-meets-classic look on the November cover of Lucky magazine, and the good news is, her style is ridiculously simple to copy. In fact, you probably already have most of the elements in your closet now!
Here’s what you need: a red pencil skirt, a black camisole or bustier, a pink cardi, and killer black stiletto pumps. Oh, and a mega-watt smile, though I can’t recommend a place of purchase for that!
The finishing touch for Sofia’s smart ensemble? Her loose, touchable waves. A tight bun would give off a sexy secretary vibe, and not in a good way. The more casual hairdo–and the lack of jewelry–make this less of a costume and more of a doable date night look.

Normally I’m a fan of the oversized, dramatic glamour earrings–but these simple, modern studs are really holding my attention. I love that they’re simple but not boring and small but not dainty. They’d look great with both dressy holiday outfits and rock n roll street wear.

I didn’t write my regular ‘Inspiration Saturday’ post this week because, after the exhaustion of Thanksgiving and Black Friday, I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired. Today, though, I’ll show you a few pieces of jewelry I’m hankering after, and the inspiration behind them!
Can you guess why these three items are grouped together?
I’m really feeling wild and different jewelry lately, and all three of these pieces make me think of one of my favorite literary heroines…Daenerys Targaryen. Amazon just started taking pre-orders for season two of Game of Thrones and I’m impatiently tapping my foot until A Dance With Dragons hits stores in paperback, so Dany has been at the front of my mind.
These pieces of jewelry all make me think of Dany the Khaleesi, her Khal (am I the only one who cried when he died?), her horse, and her independent spirit. I suppose at this point it would be appropriate to move on to finding some dragon-themed jewelry…stay tuned!

I fell in love with these tall lace-up boots as soon as I saw them. I like that they have a low chunky heel, instead of a stiletto spike. They look like they’d be great with tights, a dress, and a cute sweater!
