  • 5 Perfect Dresses For A Thanksgiving Dinner Party

    Thanksgiving is almost here! As of today, you're 10 days away from delicious Thanksgiving food. Which, of course, also means that it's time to put together that perfect outfit for your Thanksgiving dinner party. Whether attending your own family dinner, your significant other's dinner, or a friend's, you'll want to be dressed for the occasion.

    Most Thanksgiving dinners are pretty casual, but some can be more dressy, so make sure to find out the dress code ahead of time. If you'd like to go with a nice pair of jeans or pants and sweater, last week we showed you our 5 favorite sweaters for holiday parties (or gift giving!). Rocking a dress is always a go-to option, as well, though, so today we're showing our our 5 favorite dresses for a thanksgiving dinner (which are of course also perfect for any other holiday party you may have coming up). These dresses are all conservative enough for a family dinner, while still being so on-trend. Check them out below!

    Lace Fit And Flare Dress

    Long Sleeve Lace Mini Dress

    Black lace is always a staple for the holidays, and we love it in this Long Sleeve Lace Mini Dress. This lace dress features a sexy illusion back, long sleeves, and a v-neck with a keyhole. The long sleeves makes this dress so perfect for the colder fall and winter months. This dress also comes in the color Ivory if you'd like to rock the Winter White trend.

    Crochet Fit and Flare Dress

    Crochet Black Dress

    This Beautiful Crochet Mini Dress is similar to the first lace mini dress, but with a crochet look instead of lace. The sexy, yet classy style features a crochet bodice, a-line waist and long illusion sleeves. This dress also comes in red if you're looking for a more bold color.

    Winter White Dress

    Shail K 3665

    You can also rock long sleeves in a white dress with Shail K. 3665, a 3/4 sleeve mini that's truly a piece of art. The fun beaded design sets this dress apart giving it a stylish, lively, one of a kind look that's so easy to dress up for a more formal part or down for a more casual dinner.

    Red Lace Cocktail Dress

    Alyce 4416

    Red, green, and blue are always staple color choices for the holidays if you want a brighter look. We especially love Alyce 4416 because it's a classic cocktail dress look that will never go out of style. From its v-cut neckline, open back, and rhinestones sprinkled upon the sheer lace sheath over linking, this dress is sure to be a crowd pleaser no matter what the event. You can easily add a cardigan over this dress for a Thanksgiving dinner, and drop the cardigan for some night time fun. This dress also comes in colors Black/Nude, Blue Coral/Nude, Burgundy/Nude, and Deep Plum/Nude, all perfect colors for any holiday event.

    Classic LBD

    Sherri Hill 32006

    While the first two dresses we mentioned are great black dress choices, if you want a more classic form fitting LBD, go with Sherri Hill 32006, a short jersey and lace dress. This totally versatile dress features cap sleeves, lace bodice, a v-neckline, and a stretch fitted jersey body. This is definitely a dress that you can easily wear time and time again, from Fall and Winter right into Spring and Summer.

    Whatever you end up wearing for your Thanksgiving dinner, have a wonderful time hanging out with your family and friends!

  • Wisconsin School Creates Gender-Neutral Alternative to Homecoming King and Queen Tradition

    With Homecoming Season here, there's a lot more that goes into being ready for your homecoming dance other than finding the perfect homecoming dress, shoes, and accessories. There's also the age-old tradition of choosing your high school's homecoming king and queen, of course!

    Well, this tradition has been given a new spin by a Wisconsin high school - this year Madison West High School in Madison, Wisconsin are starting a new tradition of a gender-neutral alternative for their homecoming court. Instead of electing a homecoming king and queen, students can nominate 20 student who they feel best represent Madison West High School, and two students will be chosen "Regent Royalty," regardless of gender. The name comes from their school mascot, which is the Regent.

    WMTV explained that this progressive idea was thought up last year, when it was proposed by Madison West High School Gay Straight Alliance members Arwen Sadler and Kate Scholz. And, they worked hard to see their vision through. Students at the high school collected almost 1,000 signatures from students and teachers who supported a more inclusive method for choosing homecoming court nominees. Their hard work paid off, because Homecoming 2015 is the first year this new homecoming policy will be put into place.  Continue reading

  • Lily-Rose Depp Shows How To Rock Homecoming Dresses Celeb Style

    Actor Johnny Depp's daughter Lily-Rose Depp has been taking the media by storm lately, showing off her true fashionista skills, and we're basically obsessed. Most recently, she attended the launch party of Chanel's new Mademoiselle Privé Exhibition in London, where she rocked a lavender Chanel dress and black jacket and amazed all by her totally unique and chic style. So, ok, she may not have been attending a homecoming dance, but we're totally loving her look, one that couldn't be more perfect for showing off your own style at your homecoming dance.

    http://rissyroos.tumblr.com/post/180094956717/lily-rose-depp-at-the-launch-party-of-chanels-new


    Her look is a perfect place to start for being inspired for homecoming not only because it's just classic stunning, but also because it's a totally funky, unique look. Teen Vogue perfectly described the look: it's "not only...mindbogglingly gorgeous, but also because it's fun and a little quirky."

    So, to rock a fun, but classic lavender look like Lily-Rose Depp, you can try a dress like La Femme 16813, a cute short dress with ruffles on the skirt and a beaded top, just like Lily-Rose's dress. You can definitely twirl around in style in this dress!

    Then, top off the dress with a black blazer to get a totally unexpected look that's, of course, perfect for the cooler fall weather. Try this long sleeve sequin open blazer for a dressy blazer that gives off a similar vibe to Lily's blazer.

    Long Sleeve Sequin Open Blazer J6337

    After getting the lavender dress and black sequin blazer, all that's left to finish off the look is a simple black heel, rather than going with a high stiletto heel. After all, you can still be chic and practical! Go with Sweetie's Zabie Elegant Short Shoes for a similar choice to Lily's heels (2 and 3/4 inch heel). Or, for a slightly higher heel, go with Sweetie's Spice Open Toe Shoes (3 and 1/2 inch heel).

    No matter what you end up wearing to Homecoming, just remember to have lots of fun!
