Party Time :: holiday dressing + glitter pumps

Friday, December 18, 2015

Be the star of any soiree by turning heads in a sweet combination of polished glam and effortless femininity. Oh, and don't forget the glitter! All of you girly girls out there, this one's for you.
Layering a blouse underneath a dress is a chic way to winterize your favorite frocks. I recently paired a black turtleneck with a short sleeved fit-and-flare and I loved that technique so much I couldn't resist styling this adorable blouse in the same way. 
A Peter Pan collar is a classic way to keep your look elegant; it's sharp yet completely ladylike. 
Giving twinkle toes a new meaning, these glitter pumps have quickly become a favorite of mine. They're unapologetically girly, just like me :) I truly feel like Cinderella in these beauties (aka dream come true)! 
An a-line skirt is my first choice when I want to feel my party best. It's such a flattering silhouette and, like the theme of this whole post, completely feminine and spectacularly ladylike. 
Oversized sunglasses are a surefire way to make you feel chic in an instant.
A demure clutch is the perfect accessory for any party-ready outfit. I love this purse because it's a crossbody and clutch in one. Just remove the straps and viola - stylish and smart. 
These bow earrings were the final touch to my look. They may be small but they pack a hefty feminine punch - better yet they match my shoes! 
To create this soft, sultry face, I used Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette to give myself a metallic smoky eye. A gentle flush can be perfectly achieved using Nars iconic blush shade, Orgasm. It's the perfect hue - no matter your coloring. Last but not least, I chose a delicate pink lip, the ultimate ladylike alternative to red. 
[dress: Gap (old but I also like this one) // blouse: Ann Taylor (old but I also like this one) // pumps: Ann Taylor // clutch: Michael Kors (very similar option here) // sunglasses: Ann Taylor (old but similar here) // earrings: Betsey Johnson (similar here) // amethyst bangle: David Yurman // heart tag charm bracelet: Tiffany & Co. // lipstick: Urban Decay's 'Obsessed' // eyeshadow: Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette // blush: Nars' 'Orgasm'

It's official, I'll be home for Christmas! I'm Chicago bound this Wednesday and it'll be my first time at home with the family since early June. Now all we need is a white Christmas, am I right? This has got to be the warmest NYC December on record, but I'm honestly not complaining. I love that I get to comfortably wear outfits like this so close to Christmas. In fact, this look was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Atlantic Pacific. It was also inspired by one of my favorite designers, Kate Spade. I consider my style to be versatile and ever-evolving, but every once in a while I have to go back to my roots and dress completely girly. It feels so right and it's just so much fun!
