We’ve got an entirely new staff this summer at Embellish and I couldn’t be happier with these fun ladies (and that’s really saying something…the last staff was awesome!)  Get to know them a bit better and stop by to say “hello!”

Rainy days always make me want to cozy up in lounge wear and spend the day on the couch. But instead, why not elevate that casual look and take it to work? Or even out on the town? Fancy sweatshirts and lounge wear are hot at the moment and I’m increasingly seeing casual wear that I’m attracted to. Chiffon details? Pleats? Fun details take the comfy stuff to another level! As I was reading People Stylewatch (again) I noticed this feature on how to style a sweatshirt. I love all the looks they show – and they’re perfect for this Ketz-ke one we have in the store right now!  Which look is your favorite? I’m loving Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo’s choices – as usual!

I just finished reading the latest People Stylewatch and had to share my favorite trend of the season: black and white. Despite its simplicity this trend is anything but boring! Check out the magazine’s favorites and then shop our black and white styles at Embellish! View all available styles here via Boutique Window!

Holiday Soiree

‘Tis the season for holiday cheer! This year I wanted to get my friends together for a holiday party. Since I have yet to host a housewarming, I decided hosting at my apartment was a great option. It was so fun I think I’ll be hosting the party annually! I’ll be sharing photos with you, along with some recipes I used that were a big hit.

The decor: gold and white theme with plenty of sparkle and shine.

The spread: pleny of appetizers and cheese with the help of some lovely ladies.

I put together a cheese plate for everyone to enjoy – and to make it easy for guests to know what they were trying I made these simple toothpick labels with washi tape. So simple! Now it is time for the first recipe (if you can even call it that….it is so darn easy!)

Cranberry Pecan Goat Cheese Roll

1 – 4 oz log goat cheese

1/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries

3 tablespoons pecans finely chopped

Pinch of salt

Now all you have to do is mix the cranberries, pecans and salt together and spread across a clean surface. Simply roll the goat cheese until coated and wrap with saran wrap. Put in the refrigerator 1 hour before serving. Voila!

The drinks: a variety of seasonal beer & apple cider sangria. This apple cider sangria recipe was such a hit! I’m not generally into sweet drinks, but this is the perfect balance of flavors. Serve this at your next party and your guests will love you forever.

Apple Cider Sangria (recipe adapted)

(for this drink dispenser, I quadrupled this recipe)

1 bottle Pinot Grigio

2.5 cups Trader Joe’s Apple Cider

1 cup Club Soda

1/2 cup Brandy

1 apple, sliced

Now just mix it all together, add ice and you’re good to go!


I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and get time to celebrate with friend and family!

InStyle recently did a feature on Pippa Middleton’s best looks. And I was impressed! I think she’d love to shop at Embellish. Here are a few of my favorite looks along with ways to achieve her look with items from Embellish!

I love how she’s taking her cream lace dress into fall with a black blazer, tights and boots.

Get the look: lace dress, black blazer (here & here)

Pippa does a great job of putting her leather jackets to good use! Notice how she wears them over everything from fun cocktail styles to flirty day dresses and leggings and boots.

Get the look: day dress, jackets (here & here)

Fur is one of the hottest looks for this fall/winter!

Get the look: vest, jacket

Holy moly – how is it almost October? How did so much time slip away from me? I guess that’s Fall in retail for you. But here’s some eye candy for you as a little apology (and so you don’t think I was doing nothing while I was absent from the blog…) Hope you love it as much as I do!

Head on over to the Embellish site to take a look!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Omaha Fashion Week Friday night show. My friend Reenie came along and we had a ball! Lucky for you, she took some photos for me. Otherwise I would have had nothing to share! Check out her work here.

My favorite designer was Kaitlyn Fitzgerald and her line is called Kait Blu. She’s a mere 17 years old but her level of design and sophistication is well beyond her years! Every peice in this collection has something special about it – they are all so beautiful! I absolutely can not wait to see what she accomplishes in the future. She is off to a truly brilliant start! Check out her line on Facebook and Twitter.

I don’t think that skirt could be any more amazing. I need an event to wear that to!

Check out the look on the far right…how awesome is the double belt idea? Twice the color, twice the fun! Props to Kaitlyn for the fabulous styling.

How adorable is she? I want her top – you should see the back detail, so cute!

Just in case you weren’t thoroughly impressed yet I threw in a final group shot for some extra eye candy.

We’re shooting a fall lookbook today. Follow @embellishlife on Instagram for behind the scenes sneak peeks!

Ready for Fall

Anyone else tired of summer weather? Great. I’m ready to wear this vest with jeans and long sleeves. Dear Mother Nature, please make this happen. Friday we’re doing a photo shoot for a Fall look book. It is supposed to be 92 degrees. My model is going to be upset with me when I make her wear sweaters and coats. Yikes.

Vest: Embellish

Shorts: Urban Outfitters (last year)

Clutch: The Tarnished Halo

Shoes: Big Buddha

Watch: Michael Kors (similar here)
