Hey my loves!

If you follow HerGoodyBag on any social networking site (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest) you would have seen the my ootd. I usually post snippets of my outfit, but I loved it so much that I had to give you the full look instantly. So here is my OOTD for Christmas Day. Check it out



I usually don’t get this dressed up on Christmas. I rarely wear jeans on holidays, but there was something special about today lol. My “maxi skirt” is actually a dress that I purchased from jc penney on Black Friday. I paired it with a v-neck black long-sleeve shirt from 6pm.com and my sequin vest by Apostrophe from Sears (now Metaphor). I finished the look with Michael Antonio zippered booties from 6pm.com and silver jewelry.

Check out the hair!

It was very windy lol

I love the cranberry color it gives off in the sunlight. In regular house lighting it looked more like oxblood, but outside my dress/skirt was more vibrant.


I had a magical Christmas and I hope you all did as well. Until next time…

merry christmas

Merry Christmas to you and your family! We wish you nothing but the best this holiday day season. Enjoy this time with your family and friends. It is not about the presents that you receive, but about the memories you create with the people you love. So keep CHRIST in CHRISTmas and remember that Jesus is reason for the season. May this day, and the days to come, be filled with love, peace and joy.

I hope all of you had a great Christmas! I enjoyed the time spent with my family. This year we did something a little different. Instead of our usual Secret Santa game, we decided to donate the money we would spend on a gift to a charity. This year we chose St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. It is such a great feeling to give to those who truly need. We also played a w game that is new to me called the white elephant (click the link for directions because it is too much to explain lol). We definitely had a lot of fun Sunday night. My niece said this was fun I can’t wait until next Christmas lol. Kids are too cute.

Ok so let’s get to business. I was really indecisive about what to wear. I had about four different looks planned in my head but nothing came together, so I just ended up wearing a dress that I recently purchased from searsStyle (check the post).

I paired it with a pair of color-block heels from Material Girl because my dress has hues of blue throughout the design. It was an unusual match, but I think it came together pretty well.

I paired it with a blazer from Charlotte Russe and jewelry from a random store in the Jewelry District. I wore my favorite tights, Hanes Silk Reflections Black Out Opaque tights that I received from Kitty Bradshaw’s Meet N’ Tweet.

I created this photo with this app on my iphone. I’m addicted! lol

Here is a close up of my shoes

Here is a pic of my siblings and niece

I so want to steal my sister’s stockings! I would wear my niece’s skirt too, I was able to fit it lol (sad I know, but I love sequins). I love shawl collar sweaters and my bro got a little fancy with the canvas closure.

I also promised you all a snapshot of my holiday mani. Well here it is

It is pretty simple. I used red Zoya nail polish on all fingers except my pinky, which I chose to paint a silver glitter. As for the designs, very simple- white, sliver, green, and gold stripes (Christmas colors) and white and silver stars.

Well that’s it for me folks! What inspired your look this Christmas?


From our families to yours, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas! We hope your day is filled with lots of love, peace, joy, and happiness! Cherish this time with those you love! Have a blessed day!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas. I enjoyed my Christmas with my crazy family. On Saturday we went to my cousin’s house like we did for Thanksgiving. This time around we played Christmas trivia and we failed miserably. My cousin was asking questions like what is Tiny Tim’s father’s name and how many gifts were given at the end of the 12 days of Crhistmas. I was like I teach English not Math lol. If you got at least one question correct you were given a lottery scratch off as your prize. It was fun and the food was FANTASTIC.

What I wore:

  • Black Sequins top-Forever 21
  • Burgundy skinny jeans- Forever 21
  • Black Lace-up wedges- Spring Shoes
  • Accessories black and silver heart chain and black and silver spiral earrings (my secret spot in the city lol)

My look was festive, yet relaxed. Everyone was pretty casual.

Here are a few of the things that I received

  • BH Cosmetics 88 Matte Eyeshadow Palette
  • Gift cards (You can never go wrong with those)
  • Avon perfect face palette
  • Thermos that says “Teachers: Opening Minds and Inspiring Hearts”
  • Sweater Dress
  • Grey handbag
  • Flip HD camecorder
  • Wireless mouse in Pink to match my laptop
  • Cookie Jar in the shape of a purse.


Sidebar: This is not directed at anyone in particular so if you are reading this and you think I am talking about you, I’m really not. I had to log off of Twitter and Facebook and even turn off my phone because of ungrateful people. I was tired of people complaining about what they received when there are a lot of people who did not receive anything at all. If you do not like a gift or want a gift that is fine, but at least a person thought about you to get you something. People always say, “If you were gonna get me this, you should not have gotten anything” and next year when you don’t get something you’ll be mad. So remember the reason for the season. It is not about getting anything. It is about giving, not just possessions, but your time, talents, and love. Some people are not as thoughtful as you. You may put a lot of effort into picking gifts for family and friends and you have to understand that some people are not like you. There are people who do not know how to shop or simply do not have as much time as you do so they give giftcards so that you can get something that you like.  Yes there are people who do it out of laziness, but remember there is a family who did not have one gift under the tree.
