Just spent some time this weekend trying on holiday outfits, and here are a few of the looks I’m planning on wearing:
THESE TROUSERS WITH AN EMBELLISHED KNIT TANK OR THIS DARLING SWEATER I JUST SNAGGED IN BLACK AND A PAIR OF OVERSIZED VINTAGE CRYSTAL CLIP-ONS FROM MY GRANDMOTHER SIMILAR TO THESE
THIS TARTAN BUSTIER TANK WITH BLACK SKINNIES AND BIG BOW EARRINGS
A GREEN VELVET MISA DRESS I ADORE FROM A PAST SEASON SIMILAR TO THIS WITH TARTAN MULES (UPGRADE PICK)
THIS PLAID TOP I SNAGGED
A couple of other pieces I love:
THIS DRESS, ESPECIALLY FOR A DAYTIME TEA OR AN OFFICE PARTY
THIS SCARLET RED WRAP DRESS ($160)
THIS RUFFLE-TRIM VELVET BEAUTY FOR CHRISTMAS VIGIL MASS
THIS SEQUIN SKIRT ($50!) WITH A BLACK SWEATER ($50!) AND THESE BOW HEELS (ON SALE!)
THIS GLITZY RIXO OR THIS SHINE-BRIGHT-LIKE-A-DIAMOND STATEMENT FOR AN EVENING AFFAIR
THIS EMBELLISHED BLOUSE
THIS BOW-SHOULDERED DRESS OR THIS ONE
THIS GAUZY TOP WITH A PEARL HEADBAND
THIS BLOUSE WITH STATEMENT EARRINGS
Finally, a few instant outfit-makers (easy-bake style) — i.e., something you can throw on top of a basic jeans-and-sweater look to look festive:
THIS FAUX FUR VEST
THESE BLACK WATCH PUMPS
THESE GLITZY MULES (ON SALE)
A GREEN VELVET HEADBAND
And if you’re not into plaids, reds, bows, sequins but still want to look festive: this dress is your answer.
And if you’re renting the runway: this glittery gem or this black flocked beauty.
P.S. Time to whitewash the house and how to prep for Christmas.
P.P.S. Major childhood memory.
P.P.P.S. Giving several 2-3 year old girls this gift this year for Christmas. Mini is in love with these things.
