Well, was Santa good to you this year? Did you get the all the clothes, and handbags, shoes, and jewelry that you wished for?!

Hopefully so.

Last year I spent this holiday spoiling my mother in NYC on a shopping trip, but this year we decided to take a different approach….let me explain.

This past year has been such a blessing and I have gotten to experience more things than I ever dreamed of….so instead of indulging on all of the pomp and circumstance of the holiday, we decided to give back this year by spending the day serving in the food kitchen at the Salvation Army in my hometown of Fort Worth, Texas…..and I must say, “What an emotional reward!”

So on this holiday, I encourage everyone to spend a few moments remembering what the holiday is about and the REASON FOR THE SEASON!

Happy Holidays!

    Emotion reward?????? Is that correct grammar?

    • Courtney

      No, its a typo! I’m not perfect 😉

      • Tara o'Connor

        No apology necessary! Understood perfectly!

      • arden

        And that is what makes you and your show so great – you are relatable and funny and REAL! xo

      Dear RED:

      My wish for you this holiday season is that it improves for you. I cannot imagine being so miserable that “I’m” posting smart ass remarks on someone’s blog on Christmas night. #getalife

    Love this banana republic cape, however it was JUST on Fashion Police’s WHAT NOT TO WEAR… May want to reconsider this post as a fashion blogger with weekly postings??

  • Priscila

    Looooove It! Xo from Brazil! Love your show!

  • McCall sink

    So here is the deal…… I’m going to need you to have a favorites list that your blog is public to first, before everyone else. That way I can order things (cape) before the rest of America does and it’s SOLD OUT! Heart break!

  • Berty Morales

    It is always so important to give back and what a great way to spend Christmas! I’m sure you made so many people happy. I’m actually in the process of going through my closet and hoping to donate some clothing to a charity either this weekend or next week.

    I love that cape. It’s so pretty!

    It’s so amazing to give back to the community especially on the holidays. I’ve been wanting to volunteer at a food kitchen for the holidays for a little while now. I’m going to find some places near me and hopefully volunteer at one next year!

  • Jamie Marquez

Your website is such a big help since I always see what other people are wearing and wonder where they got it from. And now I know! Just wanted to give a little shout to you to tell you I think what you are doing is amazing and such a big help to people like me who need a little help in the beauty world haha. Happy Holidays!

    Courtney, I just recently discovered your blog from Courtney Loves Dallas (love the show, btw) and I’m officially hooked. You’re gorgeous, inside and out. That cape is beautiful, and the color blocking is so unique, and the outfit underneath is wonderful as well.

    honestly could anyone be as perfect as you courtney. you are literally the most beautiful and the funniest woman ever! my biggest wish is to one day be half of the woman you are.

  • Claudia Serna

    Love the outfit, where can i get the skirt and blazer from Zara? I cant find them online.

  • Carrie

    I just love this post, the clothes, the hair, and the photography are just spot on! I don’t get out as much as I’d like because of some health issues but I like to think ‘what would Courtney wear?’ as I am getting ready. For me I am a bit more casual and can usually be found in jeans so I really love accessories.
    I hope to find more fun on your blog.

    I know everyone says it but if you’d like to check out my blog I’m at It isn’t a fashion blog but hey maybe you’re looking for something else to read today 😉
