They are so beautiful and magical and bring that jolly spirit even if you live in a desert. They also make a really great gift because it will always the person of that year.

Holiday Gift Guide for Her

Screenshot 2013-12-04 12.32.53

What should you get your girlfriends, wife, daughter, sister, etc. you ask? We have a few ideas to get you started in your Christmas hunt. What do girls like? Magazines, jewelry, stationary, perfume to name a few. We have some affordable options that she would surely love for the holidays!

Products listed: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

1. Magazine subscription: Get her a 6 month or 1 year subscription for her favorite magazine: fashion, home, tech or whatever interests her. One of our favorites is Vogue.

2 & 3. Jewelry Organization: This is something that almost every woman or girl deals with. Lots of girls lose jewelry because they don’t have a good way of storing it all or can’t remember where they put their favorite bracelet.This is a cute and affordable way to solve that problem.

4. Luxury Fragrance: A luxury fragrance is always a great idea. It lasts for a long time and smells divine. It adds that extra confidence to her step before she leaves home.

5. Personalized Planner: To help get her ready for the new year and achieving her goals, consider getting a personalized planner. We found a cute line of planners from Erin Cordon who has a who line of home goods that are super cute.

Christmas Dinner Outfit Idea

Hey there friends! I wanted to share a Christmas Dinner outfit idea. This outfit is super simple, comfy and a perfect option for whether you are meeting your boyfriends’ family for the first time or hanging out with your own family.

You can still wear those leather shorts you had from summer and pair them with a pair of tights and a long sleeve fitted shirt. Here we paired with burgundy tights and a black shirt. To keep warm we added the tribal sweater to cozy up with next to the fire. The combat boots are a great choice for comfort but the studs keep them trendy and fashionable. We kept the accessories simple so nothing will be in your face or snagging on other family member’s sweaters as you hug them.

Thank you for visiting and don’t forget to hashtag #wrkitgirl to feature your holiday looks on our Instagram!

Enstyle Butik Meet & Greet Recap

Last night we attended the Enstyle Butik Mix & Mingle with hosts Vanessa Posso of RichGirlz Accessories and designer Delicia Cordon of DeCordon. We sipped on a little wine while we shopped the floor and happy to have found a diverse selection for any woman’s style. We came across a white leather crop top and embellished navy pants which are totally on trend for the fall/winter 2013 season. This was definitely a “Wrk IT Girl” event as there were so many great young women at this event who are all ambitious and working towards their goals. We met JoJo who is the owner of StrutN’ Face Makeup Artistry, CJ who is an aspiring handbag designer, Ronesha, owner of Gifted and Talented Kids Academy, Regina who is the PR Manager for Enstyle Butik, and Tiffany who owns Monique’s Hair Boutique. We indulged in the energy of one space full of amazing women and can’t wait for another opportunity to connect with more awesome people.

Fashion Houston 2013 Outfit

Fashion Houston 2013

We haven’t done an outfit post in a while and we wanted to share what our Editor-In-Chief wore. She sported a black lightweight vintage blazer, a Kardashian Kollection top, vintage pleather leggings, and Charlotte Russe lace-up heels. The shoes were very comfortable and no complaints after 4 hours of walking around and mingling. The blazer was perfect as the temperature that night was a little cool inside. It was as chic yet effortless outfit that was perfect for a fashion show.

Something Extra:

We wanted to share some candid shots from Fashion Houston the other night and also some outfits that we liked as well.
