You all know by now that I have a love for velvet this season! Velvet is such a fun holiday look that can be worn all winter long.

This crushed velvet Topshop dress caught my eye because the pink color is just so stunning. I love how this shade of blush pairs with gray, nudes and black...and even with emerald green or navy for the holidays! This dress is stretchy and comfy, and also has the prettiest low back. For sizing reference, I usually size up in Topshop and am wearing a US size 6, which fits more like a 2-4.

This Sole Society faux-fur stole is a fun gift idea. It's $39, comes in a few colors and is a great accessory to change up the look of an outfit. {See how I styled one over a blouse here.} I also love a fur stole paired over the collar of a denim or leather jacket. It's also available in more color options here.

Last but not least, these Sole Society studded heels are beauties, and look-alikes to a much more expensive designer rock stud version! They are the perfect neutral shoe, are actually quite comfy and look amazing with jeans, too!

Stylishly yours,

P.S. If you haven't been following my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway series over on Instagram @laurenlefevre, there are SIX days left and some awesome prizes to still be won! I announce the day's giveaway each evening between 9-10pm EST.

Tonight I am giving away FIVE Corkcicle tumblers and canteens, in the colors of the winner's choosing! I carry my Corkcicle everywhere, and love the fun color options!







The Best Faux-Leather Leggings

When it comes to wardrobe essential pants/bottoms for Fall/Winter, a pair of faux-leather leggings is at the top of my list for ladies of all ages.

Why?! Faux-leather leggings elevate the style of any outfit, can dress up or down and look fabulous with almost any tunic top, long sweater or dress. They look fantastic worn with heels, sneakers, tall boots and ankle booties. The possibilities are literally endless when it comes to styling these leggings, and if you don't already own a pair, you need to add them to your holiday wish list pronto.

After seasons of trying lots of different brands/styles of unflattering and uncomfortable faux-leather leggings, I discovered the Spanx version and immediately fell in love!

These are hands-down the BEST faux-leather leggings {and quite possibly the best leggings period!} on the market. I have introduced so many women to these leggings, including my mother, my sister in law, and countless friends and clients and everyone LOVES them! They are the perfect high-waist, smooth and flatter your legs, tummy and tush, and are comfortable enough to also lounge in!

The Spanx faux-leggings come in three colors {black, gunmetal and wine} this season...I have owned the black ones for a few years and just got the wine-colored pair and am OBSESSED!

Have I sold you on wanting a pair?! I have great news...

I am giving away TWO PAIRS of Spanx faux-leggings over on Instagram tonight around 10pm EST, so head over to @laurenlefevre and enter to win! {It's super easy to do!}

These leggings make a fabulous holiday present for any lady on your list...particularly the lady who has it all and is hard to shop for. It's truly a gift that gals ages 20 to 80 would all equally wear and enjoy!

Stylishly yours,
