The New Black #OOTD

Alexis Fringe Dress (similar) | Danielle Nicole Alexa Tote | Custom #ootd Social Media Plate c/o TAudrey

While the rest of the country is obsessing over Black Friday, I'm just living for this rad black dress by ALEXIS that I scored at their epic annual sample sale last week for just 30 bucks! With fringed sleeves reminiscent of a fab Cher ensemble this is definitely not your typical LBD, which is why I kept my accessories simple. My friend and Miami jewelry designer Tiffany Ortiz of TAudrey has upped the ante on her popular nameplate necklace with the new social media plate ($75). Naturally I chose the signature hashtag #ootd to wear alongside my custom Kelly nameplate. If you're social media obsessed like me, or just looking for a great holiday gift, this is a must-have! Each necklace is made to order with your choice of handle or hashtag. Because I love ya, and it is cyber weekend, use the code kellyskloset to save 15% off your order.

P.S. Would love if you could vote for me in the A&F Style/Off over on One lucky voter will win a trip to New York City for an exclusive shopping spree at the Abercrombie flagship!

With the holiday season in full swing I know I'm not the only one scoping out party attire for the endless festivities headed our way. Thanksgiving is only 2 days away, peeps. T-W-O! Quite possibly the tastiest of all holidays, turkey day is also the trickiest to dress for because my outfit has to satisfy my rule of 2 C's, Classy & Comfortable. This year, I'm all about this preppy look from Abercrombie, and I know the parentals would approve, too. I mean, who can resist a cute animal sweater? I love each of these pieces because they work together in this casual chic ensemble, but they're also great basics you can mix with the rest of your wardrobe. If you don't already own a chambray shirt, or three, make sure to add it to your Black Friday shopping list. Think of it as the shirt that keeps on giving, because it goes with virtually anything you can think of.

Set your alarm clocks, because shopping starts at 8pm on Thursday, when A&F will be offering great deals on the hottest All-American looks both in-store and online. Looking to keep warm and can't make it down to Miami? With those signature hotties a.k.a. model sales-associates, Abercombie's Black Friday party is sure to be the hottest spot at your local mall.

I say, dress light and indulge!

Pencil Skirts for Petites featuring Express

On set at Despierta America, wearing an H&M Top and ZARA skirt.

Being petite doesn't have to be a fashion obstacle if you know the tricks to maximizing your size. Despierta America asked me to share my suggestions for rocking a pencil skirt, so I styled three different looks from Express to prove it can be done without overwhelming a shorter figure. (Watch the segment.)

Petite Style 101: How to Wear a Pencil Skirt
  1. Draw the eye up by pairing a bright or patterned blouse with a solid color skirt.
  2. Skirt length should be no longer than just below the knee to maximize height.
  3. Go monochromatic. Wearing one color from head-to-toe offers an illusion of length. This high-waisted pencil skirt by Express nips the waist in at just the right place creating a super-flattering hourglass figure.
  4. The higher the heel... A classic nude or black pump are the best way to continue the clean line of a pencil skirt. Added bonus? The right nude heel will make your legs look a mile long. Avoid shoes with straps and anything flat or chunky that will "cut" you off at the ankle.
  5. Consider proportions. Feeling adventurous? Rock a patterned skirt, but remember that small patterns (like lace) are best. Designs that are too big or busy will overwhelm a petite figure.

Blush N Tell

Top, Skirt & Clutch available at Blush Boutique | Boots by Shoedazzle | Target Necklace (old)

This isn't your abuela's sweater set. One of the best things about living in Miami is the luxury of enjoying summer weather (almost) 365 days a year. Fashionably speaking, it can also be one of the worst. Chunky knits and chic coats have no place in this hot and humid paradise, so we make compromises and define seasonal trends in our own way. This look from Blush Boutique is so apropros for transitioning from summer to fall, with the light knit fabric perfect for the milder temps. Plus, it's a crop top! (I'm still not ready to let them go. Year-round crop tops are a perk of 3-0-5 living.) Blush is my favorite place to stop when I need a guilt-free pick me up because I know I'll always find something new to update my daily wardrobe. Once only a gem for Miami locals, Blush launched their online shop earlier this year offering the same stylish looks at crazy affordable prices that their signature hot pink outposts are known for. Check out my favorite picks including très chic white vegan leather shorts for under 40 bucks. Sweeten the deal by using the code kellyskloset for 10% off your next purchase from (Offer expires Dec. 19, 2013.)
