  • 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!

  • Choosing the Perfect New Years Eve Outfit

    Still stuck on what to wear for New Year's Eve? Don't worry, we wouldn't leave you hanging on one of the most important nights out of the year! Every year, we choose our favorite cocktail dresses to wear on NYE, but this year we're going one step further and showing you exactly how to put your own perfect New Years Eve outfit together from head to toe.

    Check out the image below - it will take you from choosing the right hairstyle to wear with your dress depending on the dress' style, to how to properly accessorize your look, to trendy dress styles to consider wearing, to even the shoes to wear on your feet. It will definitely help you put together a New Years outfit that everyone will be envying!

    Choosing the Perfect New Years Eve Outfit

    how to choose the perfect new years eve outfit

    When it comes to choosing the right hair for your dress, it's all about pairing the hairstyle with the dress' neckline. For instance, a low cut dress calls for a plain hairstyle. With a strapless dress, you have two choices: either wear your hair up for a more alluring look, or keep it draped over your shoulders to add some modesty. If you're wearing a dress with the trend-setting collar style, just make sure you're wearing a hairstyle where the collar can stand out and take the spotlight on your outfit. For backless dresses, it's the perfect opportunity to wear your hair in a low hanging ponytail look, which is a very popular style right now.

    Accessories can be just as important as your dress! We live by the philosophy of "less is more" when it comes to accessories. If you're going with a simpler style dress, it can be fun to pick one big or bold accessory as the stand-out piece of your outfit. This season, we recommend going crazy with your purse - using your clutch as your outfit's stand-out piece is always a great choice.

    When it comes to choosing your New Years Eve dress, instead of choosing a straight-cut neckline, consider something a little more flirtatious. NYE is definitely a night for flirtatious and sexy looks, so don't be afraid to go that route. Both lace and leather are great choices for a sexy NYE look and have been popular trends lately. If you go with lace and leather, keep your makeup simple but sexy by pairing it with pale pink lip gloss and black eyeliner.

    The shoes may be last, but they certainly are not least when it comes to your NYE outfit! Amp up your party attire with unexpected footwear like day-to-night flats, comfortable wedges, or sexy platforms. For simple dresses, try pairing it with a pair of shoes with fun embellishments.

    New Year's Eve is close, and time is running out, so if you haven't started shopping yet, it's definitely time. Want to get started? Just head on over to for everything from your dress, to jewelry, purses, and shoes, and your perfect New Years Eve outfit will be ready to go in no time!

  • Jacquie Lee Wearing Sherri Hill on The Voice

    We're so happy that this week Jacquie Lee made it to the Final 3 on The Voice, but we're still stuck on her performance from last week! Last Monday, Jacquie was one of the Top 6 to perform on The Voice, where she blew the crowd away singing "Cry Baby" by Janis Joplin and "The Voice Within," which was dedicated to her coach, Christina Aguilera.

    Her beautiful singing voice wasn't the only reason we were blown away by Jacquie, though. The dresses she wore were just so beautiful! Not only that, but you can wear them, too, because they were by dress designer Sherri Hill! Check out what she wore below - they're perfect looks for an upcoming Holiday party or for Prom.

    Jacquie Lee in Sherri Hill 11068 The two-piece gown that she wore while singing "Cry Baby" is Sherri Hill style 11068, one of designer's newest looks for Prom 2014! It's a brilliantly designed evening gown with a beaded high neck sleeveless top and a long slim skirt with a beaded waist. The top and skirt sit at just the right place around your waist to give a figure-flattering look. And, it's definitely an elegant way to wear the hot crop top look for a formal event, showing just the right amount of skin. Best yet, it's a style that can be worn to a number of different events, whether a formal holiday party or prom.

    Jacquie Lee in Sherri Hill 4304

    Jacquie also belted her heart out singing "The Voice Within" in the elegant cocktail dress Sherri Hill style 4304. It's a beautifully beaded cocktail dress that features an intricately beaded bodice, cap sleeves, and a high neckline. Definitely just as elegant of a look as style 11068, just in a shorter style! It's a perfect look for any holiday formal or semi-formal event, or even Homecoming!

  • Taylor Swift Rocks Out at the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

    The 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show finally aired on CBS last night, and it was as amazing as we could have anticipated, especially with one of our faves, Taylor Swift, as the musical guest of the night!

    VS Fashion Show 2013

    Taylor rocked the event just as hard as the VS Angels, from her floral dress that she wore on the red carpet to the sparkly number she wore while performing on the runway! Check out what she wore below and how you can steal her style for the holidays and prom.

    Floral print is such a popular trend right now, and Taylor showed off the style perfectly in the long sleeved cocktail dress that she wore on the "pink" carpet before the event. The black background color of her dress really let the floral details stand out.

    Dress designer Sherri Hill creates similar floral dresses that are perfect for formal events from the Holidays to Prom. Two dresses that we love to get Taylor's short dress look are style 21224 and style 21198. Sherri Hill 21224 is a stunning cocktail dress that features an all over lace bodice and multi color sequin floral design. And, Sherri Hill 21224 is an elegant cocktail dress that features a sleeveless, sheer high neckline and an embellished floral design in the bodice with a short flared skirt.

    And, the dress she wore for her performance was just as amazing as her "pink" carpet dress! She wore a glamorous silver and sparkly short number that was so complimentary to all of the stunning outfits the Victoria's Secret Angles wore.

    2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - Performance

    Tony Bowls style TS21306 and Black by Blush style C132 are two perfect choices to get Taylor's glamorous look, especially for Holiday parties. Tony Bowls TS21306 is a Allover hand-beaded mesh short sheath cocktail dress with illusion cap sleeves, illusion scoop neckline over a sweetheart bodice, and an open keyhole back bodice. Black by Blush C132 is a sexy tank dress that rocks a deep v-illusion outlined in stones with a low open-back.

  • The Walking Dead Star Emily Kinney in Tony Bowls & Sherri Hill!

    Have you been watching The Walking Dead endlessly in October to get amped up for Halloween? We have! Well, we have another place to get your The Walking Dead fix: in the October 2013 issue of Glamoholic Magazine. Why? Because actress Emily Kinney, who plays Beth Greene on The Walking Dead, was featured in the magazine wearing none other than two of our favorite designers: Tony Bowls and Sherri Hill!

    Emily Kinney in Tony Bowls TS11367

     In the above photo, she's seen wearing Tony Bowls Shorts style TS11367, a sleeveless slim sequin mesh short dress with large novelty stones, a "V" front and back neckline, and nude color side panels. It's a stunning cocktail dress that's perfect for Homecoming, Prom, or the Holidays.

    Emily Kinney in Sherri Hill 21217

    In this photo, Emily is wearing Sherri Hill style 21217, a cute and fun cocktail dress with a high neckline, sexy open back, sequin bodice, and gorgeous lace. We especially love the flowy ruffled skirt - perfect to twist your hips at Prom or Homecoming!

    In the article, they talk about everything from The Walking Dead, to music, style, and boys. It's definitely a great read! One quote that we're loving:

    "If acting is my passion, then song-writing is sort of a steady best friend."

    We know her character, Beth, sings in The Walking Dead, but we never knew that it was a hobby of hers!

    The Walking Dead, Tony Bowls, Sherri doesn't end there: you can read the full article on Glamoholic's website! Plus, with Avril Lavigne as the October Cover Girl, could you really go wrong?? Have fun reading!

  • The Great Gatsby Inspired Look for Halloween

    The Great Gatsby may have been in theaters earlier this Summer, but we're still obsessing over all of the stunning fashion in the movie. We simply can't get all of the glitz and glam out of our heads (not to mention Leonardo DiCaprio)! Well, with Halloween here, is there a better time to show off your own glitz and glam? We didn't think so! So, we thought it would be fun to show you how you can rock this Summer's hit movie for All Hallow's Eve.

    flapper halloween costume

    To get the look, we paired one of our sparkly fringe dresses with a chic feather headpiece, a feather boa, and a long strand of pearls. You can also add in dress glove for an extra touch of glam (and warmth!). The dress is Hannah S. style 27696, a strapless slim sheath cocktail dress with all over sequins and a beaded fringe skirt.

    Remember to complete the look with super glitzy jewelry! We especially love Helen's Heart style JE-4601-10 Clear Silver Earrings and Helen's Heart JB-PD00339 Black Diamond Bracelet to add some bling to your outfit.

    Helen's Heart Earrings je-4601-10-s-clear-12_1 (2)

    This will definitely give you a costume even Daisy Buchanan would envy!
