Good Morning readers, I hope you all have been having a great week!  Thank God it’s almost Friday right?  I have some exciting news for you!  I’ve partnered up with a few New Orleans bloggers for some upcoming style collaborations starting this weekend! So get ready to see Rachel Hall of Luxe Hall, Juley Thuy of Upperlyne, and  Katie Dumestre & Rachel Adams of The Elizabeth Chronicles put their style to work on Haute Off The Rack.  I am so excited to work with them and can’t wait to share all of the photos with you!  While we’re on the subject of style collaborations, what did you think of the first Haute Off The Rack & District Dress Up style collaboration? See here–> (Burberry & Chambray) We’d love to hear your thoughts!  If you liked it, you’ll be happy to know we have still have two more outfits to show you!

 About the outfit: I got this sheer blouse from Urban Outfitters a few months ago and it has been such an easy top to style with every day outfits as well as dressy outfits. Considering how versatile it is, I’m considering investing in a few more colors.  Did you notice how much this burgundy colors pops with all black? I especially love how the black fur vest adds a hint of glam to the outfit.  What do you think?  By the way this fur vest is available at Love boutique in Baton Rouge, La (225) 927-7395. Love’s selection of fur accessories make great Christmas presents and are sure to add some glamour to any outfit this holiday season!

Good Morning readers, I’m so excited to finally share these photos with you from me and Abbey’s style collaboration!  I know I told you that we were going to shoot together while we were in New York this past September, but Fashion Week kind of took over our schedules and set us back.  So I was thrilled when me and Abbey Brandon of District Dress Up  partnered up while she was in town. We had so much fun photographing each other’s outfits and combining our own styles to collaborate a few outfits together for our readers.  It was a pleasure working with Abbey, and after we went through my entire closet and emptied all of her suitcases, I think we came up the perfect looks to best represent District Dress Up and Haute Off The Rack.  I hope you enjoy! Comment and let us know what you think! We’d love to hear from you!  Also, make sure to check out District Dress Up this evening to see more of Abbey’s outfit!

Good Morning readers, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation time from work and spending time with my boyfriend, friends and family.  I even scored a little treat for myself on Black Friday!  Speaking of Black Friday, If you missed out, no worries because today is Cyber Monday so you can still save on some amazing online deals! Check Friday’s post (here) for some continued Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals!

About the outfit: Did you notice that that I incorporated all white into a Fall outfit breaking the “Don’t wear white after Labor Day” rule!  I thought it helped balance out the rugged look of the twill parka from Gap. Plus I love how it focuses all of your attention on these amazing equestrian style boots. Speaking of the twill parka, what do you think?  I think it’s great for adding a little bit of edge to simple outfits! And not only is it on trend, but it also keeps you warm and toasty with a plush removable lining and a detachable fur hood.

P.S.  For extra entries in the Frock Candy drawing, mention/tag @HauteoOffTheRack or @Frockcandy on your Facebook or Twitter telling us which pair of boots is your favorite! OR by simply clicking the Facebook Like or Share button on this post!  Good Luck!
