Get Ready to Sparkle!



It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us – seems like just yesterday we were gearing up for the beach!

Now that you’ve pulled out all your cozy cashmere sweaters, it’s time to get ready for the holiday parties! If you don’t have many reasons to get dressed up throughout the year, you can always count on the invites to flood your mailbox during the holidays. Here are a few ideas to help you feel your best at any event.

For evening, it’s always easy to wear black, so I won’t steer you away from that. However, I do suggest choosing a dress with special details that elevates an otherwise boring LBD. This floor-length velvet dress with satin collar and side slit is stunning! With its Old Hollywood feel, you can pair it with a bold, red lip for a classic look.

Grey is a great alternative to black. This beaded cocktail dress has amazing feminine details and sheer sleeves to offer arm coverage. And because of the gorgeous beading, accessorize with simple jewelry to avoid overwhelming the look.

For a bold pop of color this season, red is the perfect choice. This sweet, A-line silhouette is also very classic and can be worn for years to come. With gold or silver jewelry, black or sparkling shoes, this is a surprisingly versatile dress that gives you plenty of options.
