For many of us the holiday season is a time of parties. And, of course, parties mean dressing up. For day three of the Twelve Days of Giveaways, we have a prize package that will help you add some festive flair to your wardrobe.
This week, a photo of Gemma Ward on the set of the filming for The Great Gatsby was leaked onto a Tumblr blog and now the fashion world is all in a-twitter. The Roaring '20s trend has been hot this year with flapper-inspired frocks that walked down the runways of Ralph Lauren, Alberta Ferretti, Sonia Rykiel and Gucci, and even inspiring Kate Moss' dreamlike wedding. This trend isn't going anywhere any time soon. It's infusing trends in beauty, shoes, hair and apparel for day as well as evening.
No need to wait until the movie's release in December 2012 to hop on this trend, it is an easy one to recreate, and a great way to glam up for the holidays.
Here are some tips on how to get the look of the Jazz Age without having to pay for a runway frock.

Social media outlets were all a-twitter this week regarding Gwyneth Paltrow's newsletter GOOP. GOOP is a newsletter (and website) where Paltrow shares her favorite places to visit, recipes, advice and inspiration from celebrity friends, and her random thoughts on topics important to her. This week, GOOP featured Gwyneth's choices for spring essentials.
The collection was full of simple, yet modern pieces that were are versatile and perfect for the season. Paltrow teamed with shopping site Net-a-Porter to offer these wardrobe essentials for purchase. The only problem" These "essentials" total over $18,000 ($16,434 for the clothing and shoes alone!). I doubt you can afford such a wardrobe, I know I can't. I usually hate "Dress for Less" articles because they pick pieces that may be similar, but don't give the same effect when actually worn.
However since I do believe Paltrow's "essentials" do make for a creative yet wearable spring and summer wardrobe, I scoured the 'net for pieces that give the same effect, but are available for much, much less.

This time of year is hard for a woman's wardrobe--one day it's so warm you could wear sandals, the next day you need to pull out your boots and parka. After a long, cold winter the last thing you want to do is wear any more wool, but you'll freeze (and look a bit ridiculous) if you start donning the capris and sundresses.
How do you gracefully transition your closet from winter to spring?
