Holiday Dressing Part 3 / Jumpsuit

 

Shopping Guide:

Off-the-shoulder velvet trapeze dress: Alpha Omega

Holiday Party 3: 

What and where: A corporate company holiday party at city hall.

What I wore: An off-the-shoulder wide legged jumpsuit and sky high heels.

Why I chose it: My date didn’t specify a dress code so I figured that this dressy designer jumpsuit could pass easily between cocktail to semi-formal to an edgy take on black tie.

How did it go: I’ll be honest, I could have gotten away with a gown and kind of wish I had but this was a safe bet and is a super flattering and versatile addition to my closet.

Next up this week: What I wore to the Guardsmen Christmas Tree Lot Party which is a cocktail party where anything goes and you are bound to run into at least one ex-boyfriend. Spoiler alert: I got the pleasure of seeing two of them in the first 5 minutes. Thank god for plunging necklines.

Holiday Dressing Part 2 / Printed Full Skirt

 

 

Shopping Guide:

Printed Asymmetrical Skirt: Fleur de Paris – purchased on recent trip to New Orleans.

Scrappy Black Sueded Heels: Forever 21

Velvet Choker: Gifted on Italia Collection shoot – purchased from Nordstrom.

Black Bustier: Bebe

 

Holiday Party 2: 

What and where: Annual family holiday tradition to see a play (this year Cirque de Soleil) and get a nice dinner together (Epic Steakhouse). Side note: We ALWAYS end up taking our family Christmas photo together so you kind of HAVE to kill it on this night every year.

What I wore: A dramatic printed skirt and bustier top.

Why I chose it: My parents aren’t conservative – thankfully – and my extended family appreciates fashion risks. I also recently bought this skirt in NOLA I felt like I had to find somewhere to wear it, this event was a safe bet and I knew it would be forever documented in our annual family photo so that motivated me a bit.

How did it go: I’ll be honest, I was pretty cold and put on a sweater after about five minutes but it was definitely a great choice for photos.

 Next up: My best friend’s stand in date to the Lyft holiday party on Thursday!
