‘Tis officially the season for holiday parties, and if you’re looking to make an entrance we’ve got your outfit all sewn up. Stone Cold Fox‘s latest line is exquisite enough to turn the most discerning fashion maven green with envy, a vintage-inspired collection of  designs in laces and silks that beg to be worn. For holiday gatherings we’re pining over their sophisticated Bella jumpsuit or Doutzen dress, paired with the Estrella Belt for a touch of sparkle. New Years is in the bag with the Sedgwick dress, a slinky, shimmery number short enough for its 60’s namesake. As if that wasn’t enough, their collection of robes is sure to send you running for your wallet. Every garment is made with love locally and sourced with the USA, so we couldn’t be happier to see another fabulous #ethicalfashion brand!  Keep scrolling to see how the lovely Tereza wears Stone Cold Fox.

Every girl knows there’s nothing better than a comfy pair of yoga pants. Beyond Yoga has been one of our favorite retailers for a long time for this very reason- their clothes are breezy, cute, and made to fit every body type. As a company that is known for supporting body positivity and healthy living for women, we couldn’t have been happier when Sakura was chosen to model some of their new looks and be in their holiday campaign. And with clothes this adorable, we’ll definitely be adding their Lux Palette Leggings and Lay it on Pullover (seen below) to our wish lists this year.

It might seem like everyone around you is coming down with a cold- so it might seem like a better idea to stay home and watch House of Cards for the rest of your life. That sounds lovely. If you figure out a way to do that, let me know. In the mean time, I have a homemade herbal remedy that will boost your immune system and help fight off germs. Behold – the Fire Cider. This tangy tincture includes garlic, horseradish, hot peppers, onions, turmeric and apple cider. All the ingredients, finely chopped and combined in a mason jar, stand and ferment for about two weeks. The strained liquid is called Fire Cider. It is one of nature’s strongest antibiotics as well as an anti-fungal and anti-viral remedy.

A couple of words about the natural properties of the ingredients:

Apple Cider – a good source of vitamin C and acetic acid. It contains mineral salts, amino acids, helps with digestion and washes out toxins. (If you read my Bone Broth recipe, you know the importance of using apple cider to draw out nutrients from other foods).

Garlic – treats high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fungal infections, and helps regulate blood sugar. It is also great for boosting the immune system.

Onion – an anti-inflammatory and beneficial to cardiovascular health.

Hot Peppers – anti irritant properties. They can help digestion, ease allergies, prevent migraines and speed up metabolism.

Ginger – reduces inflammation, stimulates circulation, and inhibits rhinovirus – which causes the common cold. It also benefits the intestinal tract and may prevent stomach ulcers.

Horseradish – has antibiotic properties, helps relieve symptoms of water retention, and treats sinus infections, urinary tract infections, and bronchitis.

Turmeric Powder – boosts immunity, helps maintain normal cholesterol levels, puts the brakes on aging, is anti-inflammatory, and has beneficial effects on arthritis, allergies, asthma and even cancer.

Now the taste of Fire Cider may at first be surprising. It has a strong kick to it and the first unsuspecting spoonful made my eyes water. Personally, I happen to love the apple cider vinegar taste and the potency makes it seem like the germs and bacteria are burning away. Start with a tablespoon a day, and slowly work your way up to a small 1 oz shot. Take once daily as a prophylactic and immune strengthening aid. Increase intake slightly if you are actually under the weather, but remember to still work your way up to the full dose. Bottoms up!!

Recipe:

4 cups organic apple cider (raw is better if you can find it)IMG_3401

¼ cup finely chopped garlic

½ finely chopped onion

¼ cup grated ginger

¼ cup grated horseradish

2 fresh hot peppers (habanera, or cayenne work well)

2 tbsp turmeric powder

Preparation:

 IMG_34021. Combine and mix all ingredients (except for vinegar) in a bowl.

2. Transfer the ingredients into a Mason jar, and add apple cider vinegar.

3. Place a piece of parchment paper over the jar, before placing the lid on. This will prevent rusting.

4. Shake vigorously.

5. Place the jar in a cool place, and let stand for at least 2 weeks. Make sure to give it a good shake a few times a day.

6. After 2 weeks, strain the liquid using a metal strain.

7. Refrigerate in an airtight container. The tonic will last for up to 6 months.

Inside the glossy pages, you’ll find her looking stunning in teal blue evening wear and a bold, monochromatic purple ensemble – both perfect for the wintertime soirees coming up on your calendar. Seriously, is there anything this girl doesn’t look good in?!

How NOT To Be Awkward At Parties: 6 Outfits That Save The Day

“Claiming that we’re “awkward” is probably our go-to way to self-deprecate. It’s simply because we’ve all been that girl — the one who’s holding so many hors d’oeuvres she doesn’t have a spare limb to shake a stranger’s hand. Or, the one who can’t walk across a room without spilling her beverage, and for whom the term “small talk” makes her wince. And, this time of year — the Olympics of social gatherings — our graces are really put to the test.

Well, we’re putting our hard-learned lessons to better use: helping you navigate the holiday party circuit with a few clever style solutions. Yes, your outfit can help. There are accessories so cool they’re automatic icebreakers, clothes that will hide a margarita dribble, and other precautionary measures that are so much more than fancy and festive. Read on and ease those nerves, party girl.

The Smooth Mover

Let’s kick it off with the simplest of soiree-snafu solutions: The pretty party flats.

If you’re not the heel-wearing kind of girl during the day, there’s no pressure to step outside your comfort zone come playtime.

Plus, take into consideration what the night could have in store:

Will you be strolling from one shindig to the next? Will there even be anywhere to sit?

If you foresee yourself being the girl who’s hobbling around unhappily, a grounded pair of party shoes —

think metallic cap toes, glittery fabrics, bold colors — will be your sole mate.

The Spiller

You can hardly finish a cocktail or pop a few apps into your mouth without the evidence showing up on your clothes.

While your dry cleaner may love you for it, being a messy eater isn’t so great for soft, solid colors or, ya know, Instagram.

If you’re a chronic spiller, opt for busy prints that will hide any drops or smears.

And, for those who expect to be around a more rambunctious crowd,

look to incorporate easy-to-clean-up materials like patent leather or even a bit of PVC.

The Dancing Queen

When the DJ finally plays your jam, all bets are off.

Arms and legs are a-flailing, your shimmy is next-level, and the old “dance like no one’s watching” trope becomes a bit too true.

And, while short or loose hems may lead to accidental flashing, more importantly,

you’d rather not be the girl who’s wiggling uncomfortably in a look not made for dancing.

Break out the jewel-encrusted party pants that won’t keep you awkwardly bouncing at the mercy of your dress.

The Wallflower

You’re the friend-of-the-friend’s +1, and you can’t remember the name of the only other familiar person in the room.

While it may seem safe to comment on the weather, it’s also kind of a snooze.

If you’re not a lover of small talk, come equipped with an instant icebreaker

in the form of statement jewelry, especially placed near your face.

Trust: If there’s a pretty, sparkly object looking back at them,

your new friends will likely remark and you can lead the convo from there.

It’s so much better than bonding over the Polar Vortex.

The Free-Hander

It’s easy to spot a fellow awkward girl by looking at her hands.

They’re a bit fidgety; they move from a countertop to her hip, now back to the countertop, and then…err, no, play with your hair!

Some of you may choose to cling to a beverage, milking it for the duration of the evening.

But, we prefer a practical fashion solution: the pocketed party dress.

Not only do the side details add dimension to the design, they also serve as the perfect little safety nook for jittery digits.

The Nosher

Let’s just say we’re not the kind of guests who pass up the cheese platter.

Can you dip it? Is it wrapped in prosciutto? We’re in.

Naturally, the foodies of the fête will have a hard time balancing a clutch and soon find themselves

totally out of spare hands when it’s time to shake someone else’s or return a text.

In this case, crossbody carryalls with easy-to-open compartments are key.

You have friends to meet and canapés to indulge in — think of your priorities.”

From a double-page spread in Cosmopolitan Magazine to the walls of the store itself, we’ve been seeing our girl Bridget Satterlee in her newest AE campaign EVERYWHERE. November is pretty much our favorite time to shop (because with the holidays coming up we can justify going downright shop crazy), and these cozy fall outfits are to die for! Hands-down our favorite puffers, sweaters, sweatshirts and denim of the season. To be fair, AE has our favorite denim every season, but that’s beside the point.

Anyway, it simply does not get more classic than Bridget in American Eagle; that smile, that plaid- it’s a match made in fashion heaven. We’re especially loving the Neon Lemon Get Down Hooded Puffer Jacket paired with the plaid boyfriend shirt, it’s an unexpected combo but it WORKS!

Excuse us while we go buy every piece (which you totally can do too by clicking through our links at the bottom). In the meantime, feast your eyes on the beautiful Bridget Satterlee for American Eagle Outfitters.
