Tonight I’m headed to a post-holiday party that one of my best friends is throwing! When deciding what to wear for the joint “semi-formal” and “holiday” theme, I was conflicted. I could wear my “Ho Ho Ho” ugly sweater, or red and green. Or I could eschew the holiday theme and go with a classic cocktail dress?
This purple/maroon/pink long-sleeved lace dress from Forever 21 solved all my holiday party wardrobe woes. The lace print is so festive and holidayish, the long sleeves are perfect for winter, and the tight bodice and low cut make it young and fun. This outfit just screams “January” to me!
Since the color is pretty warm, I opted for warm gold accessories. These gold snakeskin heels from bebe are so comfortable, and so much fun. They can jazz up any outfit, and I’m a sucker for shiny objects.
Lastly, I added my favorite necklace, a gold giraffe charm necklace from J. Crew. And voila! I’m ready to celebrate the end of the holiday season with great friends – and I’ll be photo-ready too.
