{Splurge-Worthy Designer Gifts for Her}

DTKAustin is sharing the best splurge worthy designer gifts for her for Christmas or any occasion. - Splurge-Worthy Designer Gifts for Her by Austin fashion blogger Dressed to Kill

Am I the only one that only would rather have forever pieces for the holidays? If you’re anything like me you want a gift that is going to last an eternity. Something you could even pass on to your children or grandchildren. I still have almost all of the designer gifts I’ve received over the years and cherish every single piece! I’m also extremely hard to shop for so you can never go wrong with an investment piece. I always feel like I’m the crazy one that wants absolutely nothing for Christmas or my birthday because I’m not one that likes stuff unless its REALLY good stuff. 😂  Please tell me I’m not the only one that loves being a minimalist?!

{Best Little Black Dresses for the Holidays}

DTKAustin shares her top 12 affordable LBDs little black dresses for any holiday/Christmas occasion.

It’s the most fabulous time of the year! That fabulous time when I start stocking up on cute holiday little black dresses for all of those fun holiday events or family get togethers. I don’t know why but I absolutely love wearing cute little black dresses with fun details for the holidays. It has been one of my go-to looks for years and the details never seem to stray too far from the previous year. My Christmas day look always consists of a black dress, Spanx tights (only because they are super thick and warm), a pair of OTKs or black heels and a chic black bag. Black on black on black, for the win!

{The Importance of Strong Friendships}

Austin Blogger DTKAustin is talking about the importance of having an amazing best friend in the industry you work in.

As we get older it’s not the quantity of friends but the quality that actually matters. A good friend will be your biggest cheerleader when you succeed but more importantly a shoulder to lean on when times are tough. It’s usually during those tough times that we find out who our true friends are. Growing up I was always so selective of who my friends were. I wasn’t someone who trusted many people in my life so if I found strong friendships, they were there to stay. In high school I quickly realized that most girls my age were more drama focused. Sadly, I’ve come to see that not much has changed in this world and that finding a friend who would do anything for you is hard to come by.

{How to Choose the Best Art for your Living Room}

DTKAustin is sharing tips on how to pick the perfect wall art for large living spaces with Minted for the holidays.

Finding the right wall art for a large living space is such a challenge. Trust me, I have been trying to find the perfect art for my mantle for what seems like 2 years. I started renovating my house right when I closed and the mantle was one of the first things to go. It wasn’t until earlier this year that my dad and I built a mantle to fit the space perfectly. That meant it was time to find a piece of art worth of such a fine mantle! 🙂 I started browsing the Minted site in search of something perfect for the holidays. The ceiling height was so high I wasn’t sure what was going to look best so I was put in contact with an amazing art stylist. They made it extremely easy to know exactly what will fit the space the best. She even sent over renderings to show how the space would look with the actual art work in place.

{My Review of Natural Beaded Rows Hair Extensions}

DTKAustin shows a tutorial on the best hair extensions for fine hair, Natural Beaded Rows. | Hair Extensions | Austin Extensions | Fine Hair Extensions | Hair Extension Tutorial

For as long as I can remember I have always had extremely fine and straight hair. The type of hair that no matter what you put in it will never hold a curl or any type of hair style. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my straight hair but having the same long, straight hair style for 31+ years isn’t ideal. A few years ago I went to the extreme and chopped it all off but even then, I couldn’t style it any different but straight. How boring! I had done research on hair extensions in the past but never actually committed to getting them. It seemed that I was more serious about extensions when I chopped all of my hair off. I tried the clip in extensions and they worked great until my hair wouldn’t blend properly with them. That’s when I found Natural Beaded Rows Hair Extensions.
