OOTD, A Blogging Good Time & Gift Guide, Phew!

On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to attend a fabulous evening at Bloomingdale's for a Bloggers Night Out event. There was bubbly flowing, yummy little cupcakes, hors d' oeuvres and a ridiculous amount of fashionable ladies in one small space. I had serious shoe and sparkle envy!! I got the chance to re-connect with some known faces and met several new bloggers that I can't wait to start following. I was on bad blogger duty and didn't get a ton of pictures, but check out Rosa's blog for a few, extremely gorgeous and professional looking photos. She seriously puts my photography skills to shame!!

And since my closet is seriously lacking sequins (something I need to remedy immediately), I decided to go for bright color:

Outfit Details: Tan blazer and necklace- Forever 21, Pink top-Ebay find, Cobalt blue knit skirt-Thrift find (similar color skirt here); Brown boots- Madewell (available here); Scarf-gifted; Leopard patent belt- J. Crew outlet; Brown quilted "Affair"- Rebecca Minkoff (similar here)

Now, if you guys have been slacking on the gift buying front, Bloomingdale's has got you covered. I am telling you, your friend (co-worker, neighbor, baby-sitter, sister) will be happy with these fun presents in her stocking. And if some of them happen to end up in yours, even better!!

Deborah Lippmann Get This Party Started Limited Edition Trio, check here for availability
I was introduced to Deborah's nail polish this year and love them. She is the queen of glittery nail fun and this set is a wonderful overload. Party starting, indeed! Perfect gift for the make-up or nail polish obsessed lady in your life.

Kate Spade Le Pavillion iPhone 4 Case, check availability here
If you, or someone you know, have an iPhone 4, then a fun case is a necessity. I searched everywhere for a cute case and let me tell you, Kate Spade knows cute. She is one of the few designers who designs hit all the right notes. You can't go wrong with flashing around a polka dot phone.

Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC, available here
I am a certified Rebecca Minkoff handbag lover and have a couple of MACs in my possession. The new mini MAC size is perfect for the gal who doesn't carry a lot of things around during the day or who wants a small bag to carry the essentials at night. That neon pink would make a great pop for any winter outfit.

Diane von Furstenburg Bronze Lytton Minaudiere and Tonda clutches (check availability here and here)
Holy smokes, how gorgeous are these clutches?? Whatever Diane touches turns to gold or polka dot or bronze as the case may be here. While the previous mini MAC is perfect for a simple night to the movies or dinner, this clutch is dying to be carried at a fancy-schmancy party or a dressy affair. Ms. Bronze Lytton, I have my eye on you!!

Trina Turk Birch Metallic Sequin Dress, available here
I just went into a sequin overload coma with a smile on my face. Just look at this dress because it deserves to be admired. Do you have a Jersey girl in your life who lives and breathes anything sparkly? (Hi, Di)!! Do you need a fabulous NYE party dress? This dress is a must-buy now!

It's the last weekend for holiday shopping before you enter the danger zone of a real last-minute scramble. Whether you are heading to Bloomingdale's or any other store in the mall, I hope you get your to-buy list checked off.
