Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Style Guide: 5 Ways to Wear Your LBD This Holiday Season


1. The School Recital - You want to look nice for your children's school functions, though not too overdressed. Simple jewelry and dressy flats are the perfect way to dress your LBD down for these type of holiday events. And of course you need to pair it with a roomy satchel to hold your camera, program schedule, etc.

Shop the Look: French Connection stretch dress / Kaliko full skirt red wool coat  / Kate Spade New York Women's Tenor Wedge Pump / MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set multi-functional satchel (available in other colors) / GUESS Gold-tone Jeweled Watch / Kenneth Cole silver pave round stud earrings



2. The Corporate Event / Holiday Office Party - If you have a formal work function to attend during the holiday season, I suggest wearing what you typically wear to the office, only slightly dressed up. For example, the look above is for someone who tends to wear suits and skirts to work. Simply wear your little black dress with a little bling, heels, and a sleek clutch. If you need to layer for warmth, go for a pretty, polished blazer. If your office is more casual, wear something "dressy casual" for an office party, like slacks and a dressy blouse. Either way, keep it work-appropriate. Don't wear anything too revealing.

Shop the Look: French Connection black dress / MARELLA double breasted wool coat / Zara leather shoes / Michael Kors flap wallet clutch / RAIN black and white stretch cuff bracelet / 1AR by UnoAErre gold-plated interlinked drop earrings



3. The Holiday Dinner Party - Whether at a restaurant or someone's home, you can wear that little black dress with simple black pumps or dressy flats and a cute little clutch. Go simple with jewelry, so you can dress up the look with a metallic belt.

Shop the Look: French connection dress / RED Valentino black coat, $1,160 / Karen Millen black suede pumps / BCBGMAXAZRIA pattern purse / J.Crew shimmer crystal stud earrings / Kate Spade metallic skinny belt


4. The Ballet or a Gala Event - If you have a black tie event to attend during the holidays, you don't have to go out and buy a floor-length gown. Dress up your LBG with a major statement necklace & cocktail ring, embellished stilettos, an opera clutch, and some faux fur.

5. Downtown Cocktail Party - You can totally rock that little black dress at a hip downtown event by pairing it with black high heel booties and a sleek box clutch. Dress it up and keep it cool at the same time with a nice spiked or geometric-shaped statement necklace. Layer it with a cool leather-embellished trench coat.
