I’ve spent my first whole weekend at my new place this weekend, really taking a moment to relax and spend time with friends. Oh not to mention, watching the amazing win of the Broncos! Yay for the Broncos! I have so much furniture shopping to do and decor shopping. It is definitely my favorite part of moving into a new place. This is the first time where I am moving into a place that is mine & that I can fully decorate on my own and more so get pieces I know my college friends won’t destroy. It’s actually been pretty funny having some friends over since I don’t have a couch yet, the only place to sit is the floor or my bed.
It’s been a bit chillier than most people would think for LA but not quite as cold as it has been in Colorado or other parts of the country. I yearn for the next time that I can wear my puffer coats. Hint hint…planning my next trip to Colorado and thinking of planning a trip to New York. I have gone through several different puffer coats trying to find ones that keep me warm without having to wear 5 million layers underneath. I absolutely love the one that I’m featuring in today’s blog post that was given to me as a gift or I also have my North Face (on sale under $220) from college, which kept me warm through the coldest of blizzards. If you like the faux fur hoodie, this North Face is similar to the Moncler and currently 25% off. Not only is the importance of keeping your body warm important, but so is keeping your ears, hands and feet warm. It’s so important that my ears stay warm or they begin to hurt due to the cold weather (and that’s not pleasant!). The beanie I am wearing is Adrienne Landau which I had purchased on Gilt.com right before heading out to the mountains. This J. Crew beanie is very similar and currently on sale 30% off with code SHOPSALE or this ribbed trapper hat on sale 50% off with code SHOPSALE. With your ears warm, keep your fingertips from frostbite with a cute pair of glittens (on sale 30% off with code SHOPSALE) or these leather tech gloves ($100) which make texting in the cold that much better. I don’t know about you but I have been on the turtleneck trend for a little while and now that I am seeing more of them in storefront, I’m looking forward to seeing more of them this winter. I am currently craving this one and this one which comes in a gorgeous red (on sale 40% off, no code needed). If you love Alice & Olivia and want to give turtleneck a try, this cowl dress is on sale for under $130.00!
I’ve had a few people comment on my lip color and wanted to share with you what kind of lipsticks I use. The beautiful red in the photos from today’s post are Lancome, and they are amazing! Seriously, such great quality and they last long.

I have some exciting news to share with all of you. It’s been in the works for a few months now but I am finally ready to share with you. Something Dashing is almost a year old and with that and the fact that I have decided to continue to work on the blog, I decided it was time for the blog to get a makeover. In November, I hired Harper Maven Design and started to work with Tori. She has been so easy to work with and communicative. She has been able to make my vision a reality and it’s all starting to become real. I am so excited for the future of Something Dashing and to show you all the blog’s new image really soon.
Here’s a sneak peek at my style board…stay tuned!
