Holiday Party Style & Gift Guide
Hello there girly girls!
It's been an absolute whirlwind of a week darlings — so much to do and time is just flying by so quickly! I've had a bit of last minute holiday shopping to do (still racking my brains trying to come up with the perfect gift for my winter-bound parents, but I think I have a winner here — no more wet boots and gloves draped over the heat vents!) Thank heaven there are so many great online deals out there, and so many retailers are offering free shipping and even free overnight shipping — it makes it so much easier on those of us who tend to procrastinate!
The most important thing I accomplished this week was finding the perfect ensemble for the office holiday party. I don't know about you, but I tend to stress a bit over just what to wear to this annual festivity, wanting to strike just the right balance of elegance and style. Every twirty girl wants to impress the powers-that-be with her sleek sophistication, as well as exhibit her cutting edge style to the up-and-comers nipping at her highly coveted heels. So what's a twirty girl to do? And wear?
What to Wear to the Office Party
In talking with several of my fashionista friends, it seems that most workplaces are taking the current economic situation into consideration and toning things down a bit. Not many fancy dress/black tie affairs this year, but that doesn't mean you can't get all girlied up! If your office party is an evening event, go with a great little cocktail dress, opaque hose and killer shoes. Remember that this is still a work-related event, so steer clear of anything too bare or revealing. A sleeveless sheath with a bit of shimmer is ideal, as is the classic lbd. Add a statement necklace and a pair of glittery dangles and finish with a chic little bag.
If your party is an afternoon event, or immediately following work, you can transform your basic work attire into a chic party ensemble with just a few little changes. Switch out your work blouse for a shimmery tank or an ultra-feminine top to give your pencil skirt a whole new life. Kick off your work pumps, slip into sassy skyscrapers and add a little bling here and there. Slick on a vibrant lipgloss,a quick flick of glittery fairy dust across your cheekbones and collarbone and a light spritz of your favorite perfume and you are good to go!
Casual Party Attire
If you're like me, you will have several of these more casual parties to attend this season — family festivities, neighborhood parties, girlfriend gatherings and the like — and you'll want to put your most stylish foot forward, while being comfortable at the same time. In this case, your go-to fashion staple is a fabulous pair of jeans. I would suggest a little splurge on your favorite pair of designer denim because you are going to get a lot of wear out of a pair of these gorgeous jeans. (Think of it as an investment.) Go for a dark wash, the darker the better, which can make the transition between casual and dressy more easily and consistently.
The great thing about designer denim is that it can be dressed up or dressed down. Add a great cashmere sweater, a skinny belt and a pair of killer sh'booties for a more casual look. Bump up the style factor by pairing your denim with a flirty little top and a pair of metallic platform gladiators. And don't forget to accessorize!
Well darlings, that should get you off and partying! Sorry to dish and dash but I've got a little more holiday shopping to take care of. Have a fabulous and stylish holiday season!
