Diamonds are a girl's best friend.

As we enter November and the holiday shopping season begins (yipee!), it's time to make a list and check it twice for gift-giving! I absolutely love to give gifts, personally - it's fun to browse and see what's out there in the stores, local boutiques, and of course online. From bargain to luxury, seems there's something for everyone on the shopping list! And guys, listen up: if you want to do right this shopping season, remember the key phrase "diamonds are a girl's best friend" - it's true! Ok ok ok,'s a given, but what goes better with a stellar pair of black patent leather stilettos, than a pair of to-die-for hoop earrings , or a an gorgeous diamond bracelet ?! I think you're catchin' my drift here... This season, I'm diggin' the bling on - where diamond tennis bracelets, earrings, necklaces and wedding rings are fine jewelry store's specialty! Since 1977, this San Diego-based fined jewelry

Batty for boots.

One of the (few) tragic things about living in California is that you don't get much cold weather. Especially here in Southern California, I often find myself gleefully grabbing for my cozy scarf and stylish boots as soon as the temperature hits 70 degrees! But that doesn't prevent me from going batty for boots. Oh no no, you see, I looooove boots, especially suede boots, that hit the ankle at that perfect spot. At my last trip to Nordies, I was tempted by these BP. 'Trolley' Ankle Boots in Navy (also pictured below in Burgundy Suede). At an awesome price of $99, these may just be the only boots you need for the entire season. The block heel measuring at 3" is just right, and the brass side zipper is that adorable added accent of style. Enjoy this amazing fall weather, my friends, and get out to enjoy the fall breeze in some stylish boots! xoxo, holly in heels

Serene Sky Boutique: a new OC favorite!

In my writing, I'm always coming across amazing boutiques owned by amazing people. I just love it. My newest find is actually an online boutique, that is locally-owned, called Serene Sky Boutique ! This online fashion boutique embraces California lifestyle to a 'T' - with handpicked jewelry that will knock your socks off. Serene Sky Boutique was founded by two best friends, Donna and Frances, who are just pretty adorable. Donna always had a passion for fashion since her Madonna-lovin' days of the 80's, and Frances has loved fashion (denim especially!) for as long as she can remember, too. Head to and you'll find dozens of adorable necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings that are perfy-perf for everyday fashion, as well as those special dates, weddings and cocktail hours that every fashionista finds herself at. Adore! Check out a few of my personal faves... Lovin' this Coral Pyramid Cuff - $14 of coral, on-trend goodness. Yes please!

Target, you're cute.

I love Target. Who doesn't, really?! I recently have started following "Target Does it Again" on Instagram , and that girl does an amaaaazing job of taking shameless selfies of the cutest Target items on their racks, and enticing shopaholics like myself. Basically, she has me hot on Target's tracks - I'm loving their clothes and shoes more and more each day! And since fall is here, the wind in the OC is blowin' like it does, and I'm shopping for cute sweaters and cords instead of sandals and tanks - I have had my eyes peeled for good fall kicks. Check out these Women's Xhilaration 'Sinead' T-Strap Open Toe wedges , in an awesome maroon color. I dig the gold toe accent, and the open toe t-strap is perfect for Southern California weather (like I'm enjoying now!). An awesome 5-inch wedge with a 1.5-inch platform gives any shorty some extra height on a pretty fall day, and at $29 who can argue they'd find a better deal?! Love these, lo
