Guys, I made a Black Friday/ Cyber Monday mistake. For weeks I have been looking for a dress to wear to my company’s holiday party. I ordered (only) 2 options during the sales this weekend absolutely, positively sure that at least one would fit and would be a winner. WRONG. I am now left dress-less and all the sales are over. Regardless, this girl needs something to wear. Here are a few i’m considering and would love your opinion as to which one could be a winner. Help a friend out?
Kenneth Cole dress (old, more options below), Assorted vintage necklaces, Sam Edelman sandals
My office has a company holiday party in a few weeks and because i’m obsessive, i’ve been thinking about what dress I want to wear for quite some time. I’ve ordered and returned a few dresses (including the striped one from this post, a dud), and have been styling old options to try and pull something from my closet. This Kenneth Cole sheath dress has made it’s debut many times at office parties and more formal events, and is a decent option for our party.
Accessorizing it has always been a challenge. This time around I opted for layered necklaces and enjoyed the look.
If I were to wear this dress to my holiday party, I would have to slip on some SPANX just to create clean lines in the rear-end area.
A bold lip and big curls and this dress goes from basic to pretty darn glamorous if I do say so myself.
And a little pose to brighten your hump day!
As this dress is ancient, here are a few more navy jersey sheath dresses i’m loving. Stay tuned tomorrow for more dresses i’m considering ordering for this party.
Shopping for Cesar is probably one of the hardest tasks. He doesn’t ever want anything and is very particular about what he likes and doesn’t like. As a result, i’ve often resorted to unique gifts (creative ice cube molds, flying airplanes and beautiful flasks). While this year we’ve agreed to only give each other stocking stuffer type presents, I asked Cesar to put together a list of things he’d love to receive. And who knows, some of these may just end up in his stocking this year!
I’d love to know, what do you get your guys for Christmas? I’m already compiling ideas for next year!
Guys, everything in this post is on sale. #ILoveCyberMonday. I wanted to do a quick review of an item that is definitely new to me: the flannel shirt. My best girlfriend was in town and her style couldn’t be more different than mine, but she pulled out this blue flannel shirt from Gap and I was intrigued. I kind of love the semi-grunge look and adore how these flannel shirts (from the men’s department) look unbuttoned with a basic outfit. I chose to pair this gorgeous cobalt one with all black jeans, tank and boots and dress it up with lipstick and a gorgeous necklace given to me as a gift.
The look of this shirt is definitely more casual but I think it will be so much fun paired with colored skinnies through the winter.
If you follow me on Instagram you saw this necklace. My girlfriend gave this to me for Hanukkah. It is a repurposed vintage Chanel button, set in a cold plate and put on a gold chain. She picked it up in an antique shop in Paris and I couldn’t love it more. Chanel jewelry for less!
