20130505-IMG_9225Fashion never ceases to surprise me. If there's one thing that I never thought I could pull off with my pear shaped figure, it was harem pants. I've tried many times, but they tend to bring out all my worst features in every possible way. Don't you hate that? For some reason though, these Gold Hawk ones manage to pass the flattery test by a hair, which makes me a happy (and shocked) girl. Of course, this means I have been wearing them tirelessly. How could I not? They are basically silk sweatpants - casual comfy and luxurious elegance combined. On this dreary day, I enjoyed brightening them up with not one but two sources of neon pink pop. I'd been wanting this fluro Cambridge Satchel forever and now that finally got my hands on one, I display it on my dress form's shoulder and simply glance over at it whenever I need a mood booster. This top serves the same purpose but takes it one step further with its geometric line party and glammy silver glitter panel down the front.

It's time for part 2 of my guest style feature on A House in the Hills! For this one, I had to go all out with two of my most favorite ways to glam it up - sequins and fur. By keeping the colors neutral, the textures don't become too overbearing and the tones create the perfect canvas to add a pop lip. I love this one from MAC called Candy Yum-Yum.
