Keeping It Cozy

 b2ap3_thumbnail_Pocket-Sweater.jpg

Hello December!  With winter weather in full swing, getting dressed to face the elements can pose a challenge:  How do we look stylish and still feel comfy at the same time?  Finding something warm and cozy to wear is pretty easy, but the style part of the equation can be tricky.  I've put together a list of cold weather pieces that will help you strike that perfect balance for looking and feeling fabulous all winter long - Cozy has never looked so good...

Faux Fur

Cuddle up in a glamorous fur poncho or duster for effortless, easy cold weather style - Purrrrfectly pretty!

Cozy Knits 

Who doesn't love cashmere?  This turtle neck with a relaxed "turtle" and longer length will pair perfectly with jeans and leggings and the Posh Pockets sweater with flattering color block stripes is uber stylish and flattering - meet your new BFF :)

Jeans

The best jeans are the ones that you don't want to take off....these super comfy, super stretch jeans by Diane Gillman are perfect for dashing through the snow or roasting chestnuts by an open fire...

Boots! 

A touch of fur for warmth and chic details in the form of laces and buckles are all you need to keep your tootsies toasty while looking like the fashion maven you are...Let it snow!

There's nothing nicer than relaxing at home is a fabulous pair of PJ's.  These beauties are not just restricted to the bedroom....rock around the Christmas tree in style wearing fun and fabulous lounge wear!

Holiday Style Guide

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_holiday-style-photo.jpg

 

'Tis the season for giving and receiving party invitations!  Take the pressure of your "what to wear" questions by following these simple suggestions for your festive fetes, even if that includes hot cocoa around the fire place in your living room!

Holiday Soiree 

 b2ap3_thumbnail_marc-new-york-surplice-wrap-sweater-dress-d-20141016103404063369027_001_20141118-213558_1.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_colleen-lopez-ruby-and-white-zircon-drop-earrings-d-2014111018215957382903_20141118-214835_1.jpg

b2ap3_thumbnail_sam-edelman-eve-multi-strap-suede-pump-d-20140815162931927374815_001.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_colleen-lopez-ruby-and-white-zircon-pear-shaped-ring-d-20141107135333927382922_20141118-214854_1.jpg

A trendy cut little black sweater dress always does the trick, especially for a holiday party!  As always, accessories are the key.  Rubies make your look festive and refined all at the same time!  Don't get too refined though - a sexy pair of cage heels will give your outfit just the right amount of sex appeal to get you that kiss under the mistletoe!

 

 Cozy Trim-The-Tree

b2ap3_thumbnail_kyle-by-kyle-richards-kathy-draped-top-d-20141118111828193360350_232.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_colleen-lopez-441ct-black-spinel-hugger-hoop-earrings-d-2014111018213993382901.jpg

One of my favorite holiday traditions is cuddling up at home with my loved ones to trim the Christmas tree!  A few things are guaranteed when trimming the tree- Bing Crosby will be crooning Christmas carols, there will be hot cocoa, and there will be pictures!  Keep picture taking in mind and wear a cozy top with a jeweled neckline and a pair of sparkling hoops.  Keep your look comfortable with a pair of slippers (it is hard to get selfies that include your feet anyway!)

 

Dinner & Holiday Concert

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_kyle-by-kyle-richards-farrah-luxe-beaded-moto-jacket-d-20141117151034587300991_001.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_kyle-by-kyle-richards-kim-dolman-sleeve-jumpsuit-d-20141118144246713360362_642.jpg

A sassy jumpsuit looks very on trend and super chic for a nice dinner and holiday concert!  Don't be shy- try a jumpsuit in a festive red, which packs some oomph into your look.  To keep warm, top off your jumpsuit with a sexy leather moto jacket and shoe boot.  Don't forget something sparkly!  A stunning, classic jeweled clutch will further glamorize your look and complete your outfit! 

 

Arrive In Style . . .

Whatever your holiday plans may entail, looking great upon arrival is half the battle!  Nothing looks as stunning in the winter as hints of fur.  Also, never forget the power of red which can bring all eyes on you!  In the rush of the holiday season, create a brief pause while everyone picks their jaws up off the floor when you arrive!

 

Don't put yourself last this year!  The twinkle in your eye will shine brighter than all of the Christmas lights put together when you have the confidence of looking good!

Are You Ready to Rock?

b2ap3_thumbnail_Urban-Guitar-Collection.jpg

Over the next couple of days on HSN, music lovers are in for a major treat. Whether you're a country music  fan or rock and roll baby - between Keith Uban Guitars and Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and The Rolling Stones  - we've got you covered.  

If you could have a soundtrack playing to the rhythm of your life, what artists would it include?  Mine would include many music genera's:  Country, Jazz, Pop, Rock - and it would definitely have songs from the Rolling Stones!  That is why I am thrilled that HSN and Lyric Culture are celebrating 50 years of The Rollings Stones by bringing you clothes, accessories, and jewelry to go along with all of your favorite Mick Jagger and Keith Richard's songs....Here's a sneak peek - We're going to Rock your world :-)

Satisfaction

b2ap3_thumbnail_lyric-culture-by-diane-gilman-stretch-velvet-blazer-d-20141028162927177378921_001_20141110-235400_1.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_lyric-culture-by-diane-gilman-velvet-skinny-jean-d-201410281446018378913_001.jpg

b2ap3_thumbnail_lyric-culture-you-cant-always-get-what-you-want-scarf-d-2014111213340332376623_001.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_lyric-culture-satisfaction-french-terry-sweatshirt-d-20141112114636227376628_001.jpg

If you haven't been able to get any satisfaction when trying to find the one piece that will add style and edge to your wardrobe, then meet this long lean, velvet blazer and textured scarf. The look is perfectly paired with black denim or distressed jeans for a luxe Rock n' Roll finish.

Spirit of Rock N' Roll 

b2ap3_thumbnail_Spirit-of-Rock-.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_lyric-culture-by-diane-gilman-distressed-skinny-jean-d-20141028154703893378917_001.jpg

Fringed handbags and ripped up jeans may be right on trend now, but they have definitely been cool since Mick belted out "Sympathy For the Devil".  You've got your rock worthy  outfit, now all you need are some backstage passes..

 

Ruby Tuesday 

b2ap3_thumbnail_Ruby-Tuesday-.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_lyric-culture-ruby-tuesday-mineral-washed-t-shirt-d-20141112112912063376621_404.jpg

Snake skin detailing and a lyric-printed body?  No, you are not staring at Keith Richards in a pair of snakeskin pants, but rather, an equally hot handbag.  This clutch is the perfect size for concerts or any day, plus the removable chain strap makes it easy to be handsfree for when you hold up your lighters (or cell phones)!

 

Wild Horses 

b2ap3_thumbnail_Wild-Horses-.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_lyric-culture-wild-horses-mineral-washed-t-shirt-d-20141112112458843376620_019_20141113-130153_1.jpg

Wild Horses couldn't drag me away from this bracelet!  A lyrical charm, a Union Jack, and a guitar pick are some of the eight symbolic charms that adorn this gorgeous bracelet.  

 

Gimme Shelter 

b2ap3_thumbnail_Gimme-Shelter-.jpg

Are you with the band?  That's what it looks like when you wear this ultra cool necklace.  The moving lyrics to the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter", " Love is just a kiss away.  War is just a shot away." are etched on the back.  

 

You Can't Always Get What You Want 

b2ap3_thumbnail_lyric-culture-by-rj-graziano-bangles-d-20141023161859763382837_041.jpg

"You may not always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you just might find what you need" - like these bangles which are a jewelry lovers need indeed!  Wear them all stacked up and make your own music ( and luck!) with these inspiring bangles adorning your arm.

 

 

Flowers 

b2ap3_thumbnail_Flowers.jpg

Belt out the lyrics (pun intended) to your favorite Rolling Stones songs in a belt that would make the boys proud!  This belt buckle features the cover of their "Flowers" album with all their faces on the front.  Hmmm... belts, notches, leather - You'll have the moves like Jagger.

 

Get ready to hit the high notes when you see all of these Rolling Stones inspired favorites during the List on Thursday night at 9pm EST And then join me at midnight on Friday night when Country Mega Star Keith Uban will join us to celebrate his 1st Anniversary on HSN with his gorgeous Night Star limited closed edition guitar.  Are you ready to rock?!

Colleen's Winter Fab Five List

b2ap3_thumbnail_Fab-5-pic1.jpg

 

 With the go go go of the season, we all have things to do and people to see! Whether you will be heading to the slopes for a snowy holiday or to your in-laws for a cozy Thanksgiving, you want to keep warm while looking your best.  What will you wear?  Grab your calendar and let us help you prepare to arrive everywhere in warm, wonderful style!  

 

New Knits 

b2ap3_thumbnail_jamie-gries-collection-novelty-yarn-open-cardigan-d-20141104123251067371620_102.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_serena-williams-hooded-draped-cardigan-d-2014071016500968349219_736.jpg

Knitwear is not just for getting cozy on the couch!  This year, details make all the difference so you can be comfortable and stylish at the same time.  Try a cardigan with lace, fringe or color block embellishments, or slip on graphic mittens and signature socks for head to toe sweater style!

 Famous Legs 

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_serena-williams-ponte-legging-d-20140829115418257365738_001.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_yummie-by-heather-thomson-tyler-ponte-jean-legging-d-20140930105035957372670_MJ7.jpg

You know how every family has their titles for each member of the family, something they're known for - Aunt Susie always brings her famous pecan pie and cousin Michael is double jointed and always brings his talents (and his old Twister game) to the holiday get togethers.  This year, remake your title and be known for your legs!  A true must have for the seasons, these form fitting jeggings and leggings slim you down when the rest of you is bundled under a dozen layers.  Hello Famous Legs!

 The Perfect Mix 

b2ap3_thumbnail_sporto-knit-and-faux-fur-vest-d-20140918112355493364039_019.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_hal-rubenstein-the-lorena-reversible-faux-fur-coat-d-20141105162052613373645_019.jpg

Two is always better than one!  Try a mixed media reversible piece for you arrival to the Holiday mixer!  This year suede met fur who met knit who then fell for leather and their perfect mix gave us beautiful vests and coats that are twice as nice and breathtakingly gorgeous, too!

Notice Me Footwear 

b2ap3_thumbnail_sporto-maria-faux-fur-tall-moto-boot-d-20140911161842617373172_001_20141031-195525_1.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_hal-rubenstein-the-kalista-tall-shaft-boot-d-20140812181719163355968_134.jpg

Different seasons have different  fashion statements, yet rarely do boots get noticed like they are this year -you could say that they are having a moment!  Whether you are trekking through the snow searching for a Christmas tree, or off to grab a breather ( and a coffee ) in between holiday errands, keep your tooties warm and let your footwear get noticed.  When looking for your ultimate boot, remember buckles, lace ups and faux fur are super on trend!

 

 

 Sparkle Power

There's nothing a little sparkle can't fix!  Add a stunning brooch to your fur or carry a clutch with jewels encrusting its flap, and tell me you don't get a thousand complements when you walk into any room! Slip into a dazzling sequin sweater or bejewel cap and behold, sparkle power.

 

Don't forget the impact that a first impression has.  Stock up on these must haves and look fabulous in my Winter Fab Five!
