Twirling your way to holiday parties this weekend? If so cue the confetti because I’ll be sharing four fun holiday party looks that can be worn for any festivities now through New Year’s! I know you wouldn’t dream of showing up without the perfect dress, or the perfect hostess gift so these next few posts will cover party perfect looks while sharing four easy and effective hostess gifts sure to make your party-planner smile!
Floral are no long a spring thing, now they can be worn for Fall and even Holiday! I love this pretty patterned off the shoulder dress – not only does it have pockets (score) but also makes me feel like Betty Draper, well without all the Drama! The big floral print is sure to make a statement, while the classic silhouette will never go out of style! I also love that this dress works for all body types, tall, short, thin, curvy, boyish or busty (it also comes in plus sizes) – you can all rock this look in some way! It works great for me because it fits tight up top and hugs my waist to accentuate my smallest point! To make things sparkle and draw your eye to the smallest point, there’s a build in rhinestone belt to add some glitz and glamour!
Retro-esque dresses can be paired with equally time appropriate styling and accessories to look like you’ve totally time traveled – or you can make things modern with a few pieces! I choose the latter by pairing a metallic clutch with statement shoes! Together
The Perfect Hostess Gift – A Coffee Table Book!
Fact – Everyone LOVES Coffee table books, they really work well to bring a home together and you can never have too many of them. I am always switching mine out to give my living room a mini refresh! If you’re in need of a chic hostess gift for your stylish host, try bringing a crazy cute coffee table book – you can either buy one new, vintage or recycle one of your favorites in your apartment (this is the only time its okay to regift, so take advantage)! Try to take the time to inscribe something sweet inside the front cover of the book, you host(ess) will be grateful for the thoughtful and unconventional gift that she will actually use!
For Coffee Table Books try shopping at The Strand (NYC – additional location inside Club Monaco), Jonathan Adler, Taschen (select cities), Book Marc (select cities) Housing Works (NYC) or Urban Outfitters!
