Cocktail Party - Charcoal Dress

Here's another ensemble for your parties this season. This is for a more sophisticated look. I started with a charcoal velvet tube dress that is figure flattering. I love the sheen of the velvet and that the dress is dark but not the traditional black.

In a Flash Earrings

Sparkle is a must have for holiday ensembles so next I've added these lovely sparkling dangle earrings. Either pair would work but I'm going to go with the clear pair for my choice.

The double finger ring is a touch of trendiness to your outfit that you're sure to receive compliments on!

On the opposite wrist from the double finger ring I would wear this fun mixed media bracelet completed with pearls and sparkle!

Black Sheer Dot Tights

Purple Platform Heels

I love adding a pop of color so to finish off this ensemble I'm adding these purple platform heels. I would add a pair of patterned tights with this to make the outfit a little more fun, but you can also go with a pair of black opaque tights to keep things simple.

Cocktail Party Under $100

Hey girls!

I've got another holiday cocktail ensemble for you! This one is for the ladies on a budget. I've put together a great look for under $100 that you'll love!

First we'll start with this very trendy dark purple peplum dress from Lulu's. Peplum is showing up everywhere these days and is very popular in Hollywood. The structure in the dress gives enough detail that you'll want to let it stand out.

For the shoes I chose these cute floral black lace stilettos from Forever 21.

We won't overwhelm  the dress with a lot of jewelry so I chose these black faceted jewel wing earrings with gold trim from mark. If you need to add a necklace, choose a long pendant or single charm necklace in gold. If you have long hair I would wear it back in a sleek ponytail.

Black and Gold Winging It Earrings

Last I added this gold lame clutch from Forever 21. It finishes the ensemble off with sparkle!

All for only $94! Since we've finished under budget you may want to add some black opaque tights for colder evenings. Now you're ready for your party and you didn't break the bank! Have fun!


Holiday Party Style

Happy Holidays!
I love to style ensembles and with the holiday season kicking into gear this is the perfect time to put together some great party outfits (styled with beautiful jewelry of course)! For this look I wanted to build the ensembe around the jewelry so I'm starting with the Gray Pearls and Baubles Necklace and the Gray Pearl Dangle Earrings from Mozella Designs.

So now it's time for the dress. I'm really liking the snake print trend right now so I picked this sequin snake print dress from Lulu's.

Then I'd give the dress a classic touch with a pop of color so I chose this bright blue rouched sleeve jacket from Express.

Normally since the dress is sequined I would pair the ensemble with a more understated shoe but this mini sequined high heel from Express is still nice and doesn't overwhelm the ensemble with flash.

Last but not least we need a simple clutch to top off the ensemble. I chose this black faux crocodile clutch that's big enough to get in the essentials.
Forever 21, $15,
I'll post more holiday ensembles as the weekend goes on! Let me know what you think!
