  • Dress of the Week: Night Moves 7045

    With Christmas Eve finally here, of course we had to pick out a special dress this week that was reminiscent of the the holiday. That's why this week's Dress of the Week is Night Moves style 7045, and we're sure that you can guess why!

    Night Moves 7045

    Night Moves 7045 is a one-shoulder short cocktail dress in a stretch jersey fabric, with a neckline that's embellished with beautiful beads and crystals. The dress comes in two colors: Red and Black. The Red version of this dress has us so excited for Christmas - the color it comes in couldn't be any more Christmas-y, and the stunning beadwork reminds us of beautiful ornaments on a Christmas tree! If you have a formal Christmas party to attend, this is definitely a great choice. The color will have you in the Christmas mood, and the one-shoulder long sleeve is perfect for the winter months.

    The Christmas-y red color this dress comes in isn't the only reason we chose it as our Dress of the Week, though. With Christmas here, we know that New Year's Eve is the next big night just around the corner. And, this dress is just as great for Christmas as it is for an NYE party! While you could wear it in red if you want a stand-out NYE look, we especially love this dress in black for New Year's Eve. It's a classic look that you'll not only get use out of on NYE, but you'll be able to wear it time and time again!

  • Dress of the Week: Scala 47631

    With Christmas less than a week away, you can guess that this week's Dress of the Week post is dedicated to being Christmas party ready! And, there is definitely no better dress to pick than Scala style 47631 for such a holiday event. Why? Because the dress comes in the two most important colors of the holiday: red and green!

    That's not the only reason why we love this dress for a Christmas party, though. It's a classic (and classy) style cocktail dress that can easily be dressed up or down, depending on how dressy your holiday party is. Not only that, but this dress features an open back, cap sleeves, and an all over beaded bodice, which are all such on-trend styles right now!

    Scala 47631_emerald

    It can be difficult to find the perfect dress to wear to a Christmas party, as you really want to make sure you choose an appropriate style that doesn't show off too much skin. THIS IS Especially important if it's a party where you will be around your family members!  That's another reason why Scala 47631 is so perfect when it comes to the holidays - the length of the dress and cap sleeves make it so appropriate for any event, showing off just the right amount of skin. We'd just also recommend to bring a cardigan, just in case you feel like it would be good to also cover up the dress' open back. Plus, with the colder weather, it's always safe to have a cardigan with you!

    Best yet, this dress also comes in colors black, ivory, navy and sand, so if you don't want to wear the classic Christmas colors but love the dress, there's definitely plenty of colors to pick from! With all of the colors that you can choose from, also a great dress for a New Year's Eve party. We'd recommend rocking it in navy or black for NYE. White would also be a fun choice for NYE if you really want to stand out, especially with how popular the Winter White trend has been!

  • How to Dress Up for a Family Holiday Dinner

    The Holidays are here and that means it's time for lots of parties - and lots of different types of parties! The Family Holiday Dinner is one event you're bound to be attending at one time or another this Holiday season, whether it be your own family's, your boyfriend's, or even your best friend's. This can be one of the more trickier events when it comes to dressing up, though. With family members aplenty - whether it be the Aunt that's your BFF, or your boyfriend's grandparents that you've never met before - it's important to make the right impression. Even though the holidays are usually a time for glitz and glam, this may be one holiday event where it's best to tone it down a notch; there will be plenty of time to show off that cute short sequin dress on New Year's Eve!

    No matter what holiday you're celebrating, the general rules should hold constant: keep the fashionable side of you showing through with a cute dress, but stick to one that's more simple and toned down. Black is usually a good color choice for a simple look, but don't be afraid to show some festivity with a red, green, or blue colored dress. It's also always good to bring a blazer or cardigan to wear over the dress to cover your shoulders, especially if you choose a strapless dress.

    Our 3 favorite for a Holiday family event are great simple, yet sophisticated mini dresses:

    1. Dave & Johnny style 8281 cocktail dress is a strapless black dress with taped taffeta over lace for fabric. It's a very classic looking LBD, with unique styling to it with the distinctive textured stripes throughout the dress.

    2. Terani style H1216 cocktail dress comes in the colors red and blue - both perfect for the Holidays. It has a scooped cowl neckline in both the front and back of the dress.

    3. Clarisse style 2044 cocktail dress is a sweet mocha colored dress that's adorned with beading and rhinestones. The pretty patterns gives it such a distinctive look, while the mocha color complements the beading and keeps the dress toned down.

  • Luxe Lace for the Holidays

    Even though Spring and Summer are gone, many of the fashion trends of the two warm seasons have been sticking around in Fall, and don't plan on going anywhere for the Winter. Lace is one of those trends. But, it's not only the darker lace colors like blue and black that are popular right now - the lighter looks like ivory, white, and nude are sticking around for the colder months, too.

    Teen Vogue mentioned that the lead designers have been freshening up their Fall runways with the lace trend. Simone Rocha, Dolce & Gabbana, and Michael Kors all had lots of lace (in both dark and light colors) throughout their Fall Winter 2012/2013 Fashion Shows. Check out our favorite outfits from their runway shows below.

    Lace is definitely a classy way to dress up any outfit, and it without a doubt exudes the look and feel of the Holidays. The fabric is great to wear to a number of Holiday events - from Christmas parties with your family, Holiday parties with co-workers, or a New Year's Eve night out with friends.  Below are some of our favorite lace cocktail dresses that are similar to what the designers are showing off in their Fall/Winter fashion shows.

    Wearing the lighter lace colors to holiday events is a great way to stand out in the crowd if you want a bolder look; but, choosing a darker lace fabric is always a classic for the holidays, and you'll still be sure to turn heads. Do you like the lighter colors for the Fall/Winter months? Leave a comment below!

    The holidays are coming up and that means there will be lots parties. Not all the parties will be close to home, though; some may involve traveling (a New Year's Eve trip to NYC, perhaps??).
