Festive Holiday Dinner Party

This set is for all the ladies that are keeping it low-key this year and attending a family holiday dinner party. The main thing to keep in mind is to dress appropriately, but also showcase a little personality with your look. Since it is a festive occasion you can still rock some sensational jewelry, like this beautiful Krystalin Lillian Necklace and quirky spider ring from Ayaka Nishi. I kept the outfit tasteful, yet stylish, and you can still move around with ease while looking flawless.

Dazzle and Shimmer At Your Next Holiday Party

Every holiday season I get invites to a lot of different parties. The tricky part is always adhering to the dress codes. Some are easier to understand such as formal, semi-casual and etc. Others are too vague, or have the dreaded word "festive" attached to it. So I hope this season's series of sets will help with your own brainstorming sessions when you are trying to figure out what to rock at your next holiday event.
I styled this set to showcase the perfect look for a single-and-mingle holiday party, or a shindig at a club/bar. Usually, you're surrounded by your close friends and party hopping acquaintances so you can be a little more sexy with your attire. A flirty ensemble paired with sultry makeup is the perfect combo for an unforgettable look. Who knows? In this number you may be standing under the mistletoe all night

Floral and Rugged

I love a great floral print, but when I'm rocking it in a casual way I like to roughen it up a bit. When I first saw images of this floral print leather moto jacket by Erdem on the runway I was obsessed. Since I couldn't splurge and buy the jacket, I decided to style a set around it instead. In my previous sets you can tell I'm obsessed with a great pair of distressed boyfriend jeans. They always add just the right amount of casual edge to any outfit. Add the jacket and eye-popping accessories and we have a fantastic look!

Casual Blues

In this set I'm showcasing a cool spin on one of this season's must-have pieces: the denim jacket. It is all about the fit, the fade, and the swagger. Right now, I'm loving a shrunken denim jacket over a cute little dress. I kept it casual by pairing the outfit with Sam Edleman booties, a Dorothy Perkins Beanie, and a Marc Jacobs tote.
