Merry Christmas from Amber Lehman Styling!!

You might remember my little blog series taking a room and turning into an outfit with my buddy, Ash?  Well, we had all good intentions of getting one up before Christmas, and it just didn't happen.  Waah, wash.

However, I did finish up this little beauty today just to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to all my awesome friends and readers!  I took a holiday vignette and used it to inspire an outfit.  You know, come to think of it, this would be a great New Year's Outfit too, and lots of the pieces are on sale now!

Hope you and your family are warm and toasty around a fire and enjoying time together today.  Merry, merry!

Amber (& Ash :-)

Lip Gloss Junkie::Stocking Stuffers

Hey!  It's Carrie, the Lipgloss Junkie here. 

Just thought I would spread a little holiday cheer by sharing my favorite stocking stuffers. If you are like me, you have been super busy and have waited until last minute to start shopping. I've got you covered!

For your mistletoes:  Julep Cocktail Glam Winter Collection, $24
A friend recently gifted this to me and I LOOOVE it. The colors are so great + it comes in a sparkly little gift box = perfection. Plus, it's ON SALE!  Also, check out all the other little gift sets Julep has. You can't go wrong.

For Kissing Santa Clause:  ModelCo Shine ULTRA Lip Gloss, $16
OK, this is my newest "lip gloss obsession". I found out about this one via my December Birchbox. It is such a pretty color and it has a built in mirror for quick touch ups. So fun! While we are at it, can we talk about Birchbox? It's the perfect gift for the Lip Gloss junkie in your life. You get an adorable little box full of yummy beauty products once a month picked just for you. It's the gift that keeps giving and WAY better than the jelly of the month club. ($10 a month)

For the Mister:  King of the Road Travel Pack, $69
My hubs is a big fan of skin products. Please don't tell him I told you. I recently purchased this travel set for him and he loves it!
For your little Elves:  Piggy Paint Nail Polish Set, $24.99
I have a 3 year old and she is WAY into painting her little piggies. We love this non-toxic nail polish! Jingle Nail Rock? Stop.

Hope this helps take a little stress out of your shopping! 

May your days be merry and bright!

Lauren Alaina::America Country Awards

BEST NEW ARTIST!!  I cried.  I must admit.  When you've worked with an artist from the beginning, you can't help but feel committed.  She's come such a long way too...in her style especially, and I don't think we could've picked a better dress for her to accept her first big award in.  And heck, if you can wear yellow the way this girl does, then you should definitely wear it because 95% of the population CAN'T.

Grrrrr....Leopard Print in Country Weekly

I'm quite certain that leopards don't "Grrr..." but it's pretty hard to recreate their howl in the subject line of a blog post.  So just go with me on this one.

This clip was in Country Weekly recently, and I thought I would share.  God bless him, how brave is Jake Owen for wearing leopard print on a jacket?  Pretty brave.  It's much easier to pull off on a perfect wrap dress like Lauren's.  It's by Parker.  They do this shape every season, and it LITERALLY looks good on EVERYONE.  No lie.  

Here it is at Bloomingdale's in an ombre snake print, featuring my favorite color, purple.  I'm telling you.  Cannot go wrong with this baby.

Party Style::Monaco Blue

I was emailing a little today with my friend Sam from Word Entertainment who coordinates the merch for all his artists.  Oh, merch?  That's a Nashville term for the stuff artists sell at concerts.  :)   Anyway, we were chatting about the color forecast for Spring 2013 so he could predict what might sell as far as  shirts and designs.  That got me to thinking, hey why not be a little ahead of the game and pull a holiday dress or two so you can wear Spring now, but so you can even wear the dresses later!

One of the big colors for spring is called Monaco Blue.  I've recently had an obsession with navy, which is real close to this, especially mixed with pink.  I managed to get two different fashionABLE scarves produced, in fact, that were a combination of the two.  So of course, the polish is pink and it will totally complement and pop.  I picked a clutch too, but the shoes are up to you!  Hope your parties are lively as all get out this year.  P.S. ModCloth has SO many great dresses at SUCH great prices.  TTYL!

1.  Elegance with a Sparkle Dress, $99, ModCloth; 2.  DVF Carolina Lips Metallic Clutch, $395 
3.  Essie Nail Color in Fiesta, $8, Beauty.com
I love navy or blue with pink.  Switch it around and do a neutral nail color  with a pink clutch if ya want!
