You’re invited: Ugly Christmas/Holiday Sweater Bash

H&M sweater. Urban Outfitters shorts. Bloomingdales scarf. Topshop bag. Vintage shoes

We went to ‘The Happiest Place on Earth’ this past weekend which got me into the holiday spirit.

Inspired by the fabulous Deanne of Dream Sequins who recently threw a virtual tea party to celebrate her birthday, I’ll be throwing a virtual holiday party on Christmas Eve and would love for you to attend.

Ugly Christmas Sweaters are required!

The tackier the better!

Please send me a photo of you in your tackiest Christmas or holiday sweater and include what you hope Santa will give you this year.  Feel free to send me old photos, or pick out an ugly Christmas sweater pic on the Web (a quick Google Image search will turn up dozens) that you can Photoshop your head onto and send it my way.  I plan to go to a local thrift store to find my sweater since the old tacky ones I wore as a youngin are back home in NJ.

Please RSVP by Dec. 22 and send me your photo and top wishlist item to:

stylewithbenefits (at) gmail.com

I’ll post everyone’s pictures, your top wishlist item and a link to your blog (if applicable).  Feel free to pass this invite on to your friends… the more the merrier! Looking forward to seeing everyone dressed in their holiday tackiest!

Me and Mel (Can you guess who’s who?)

Thanks for letting me be… me

Millau top and Jeffrey Campbell Alexa Wedge Bootie via LF Stores. American Apparel zipper leggings. Vintage necklace and watches. Varga bracelet

I’m thankful for snatching up the Jeffrey Campbell Alexa Wedges before they sold out again.  They are amazing, and more importantly, I feel amazing when I wear them.  Comfort + height = Shoe bliss.

Thanks so much

to everyone who stops by here and leaves me the sweetest notes; for inspiring me with your perspectives on personal style and putting yourselves out there for the whole world to critique; for embracing me and making me fortunate enough to be part of this creative fashion blogging community which I would have never imagined I’d belong.

xoxo, Becs

Say hello to my little friend

I tried to resist, but caved and got the Jeffrey Campbell Alexa Wedge Bootie from LF Stores.  They also now come in black patent leather and a cream color.

I’m such a sucker for instant gratification.

Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

vintage watches

H&M sweater. Phamous shorts via Pixie Market. Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties. Marc Jacobs sunglasses. Vintage belt, necklace and watches

These fuzzy leopard print shorts from Pixie Market and this hole-y sweater from H&M are my new favorite wardrobe additions.  Since the shorts are warm and fuzzy, I’ve convinced myself that they will be suitable for winter wear (with tights) and look forward to pairing them with an oversized blazer and boots.

Yesterday Mel and I went to the Long Beach Flea Market, and while it isn’t as large as the Rose Bowl one, I still had fun scouring cases of antique jewelry and digging through piles of watches.  I ended up buying the three vintage watches above for a total of $8.  Best spent money since I bought my ‘Chanel’ necklace last weekend at the Rose Bowl for $5.  Loves it.

If we already aren’t following eachother on Twitter, follow me here.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  xo, Becs

miércoles feliz

Zara blazer. Rampage lace top. Urban Outfitters bandeau, belt and shoes. Express shorts. Topshop earrings

Yes, LA has the terrible traffic, but when it’s still 70 degree something weather in November, I can’t complain (reason I’m wearing these shorts).  I’m glad I never got rid of this 8+ year old lace number from Rampage because it has come in handy for layering things over and underneath it.

Picked up the oversized blazer (with shoulder pads – Score!), necklace and fringe boots at the Rose Bowl Flea Market this past weekend.  The blazer is actually from We Move Vintage (new LA online vintage boutique) and joins my ever-growing collection of black blazers.  Not to mention I’m eagerly anticipating the arrival of this gem from Nasty Gal Vintage.

Rose Bowl Flea Market

Usually I’d wish you all a Happy Hump Day but just attempted to search for another term and discovered that some people refer to it as ‘the week’s belly button’.  So happy ‘the week’s bellybutton’!  Just doesn’t sound the same… xoxo

And let me stay here for a while

Urban Outfitters dress worn as top & shorts. Vintage necklace and Cole Haan shoes. Fishnet thigh high stockings from costume store

I’m now convinced that thigh high stockings elongate your legs.  I’ll be flea marketing this weekend at the Rose Bowl and hope to find some good stuff. Have a fabulous weekend!
