The Best Holiday Party Outfits (By Brand)

_DSC0301
 Quite a bold statement there, isn’t it? While these outfits might not be everyone’s cup of tea, these were my favorite pieces from holiday collections this year. My favorite time of year is fall and winter, and when the best stores bring out holiday stuff, I go crazy. These are my five favorite brands and I wanted to show you how I would put together a party look for each one! Each one has a different feel for a different type of person or party. But each of them have adorable pieces that I feel like I NEED in my closet!
Kate Spade Holiday Party

 

Anthropologie Holiday Party

 

Madewell Holiday Party

 

Zara Holiday Party

 

Modcloth Holiday Party

 

As you can see, I added a few pieces that weren’t from the brands so that you could imagine how to incorporate things you may already own into the party outfit. While I love them all, I think my favorite is Modcloth. I’ve been the biggest fan of them lately and they have amazing sales going on right now! But since these are all my favorite stores, they all feel very close to my heart.
Which was you favorite party look?

Hot Items for Late Summer

1.
2. ModCloth $124.99
3.
4. Dior

Hey guys, it’s been awhile! I am getting ready to go back to school, and I thought I would do a Hot Items list for the end of summer/early fall. These are all items that are being talked about right now!

1. I have no idea where this ring is from, (suggestions?) but gold rings are huge right now. Stacking them is big right now, as well as midi-rings that go on the top part of your finger. The design is adorable, and I found many of these at urban outfitters.

2. I love ModCloth, and I was looking for a dress for starting school in the fall. This dress from is pretty pricey, but I would pay it. It’s called the “Byron Bay Beautiful Dress” and is a really hot item on ModCloth at the moment. This sailor-inspired nighttime dress is perfect for a dinner by the sea, and is sold exclusively online. It can be done with lots and lots of colorful accessories for summer, and when fall rolls around it can be paired with tights, socks, boots, and jackets. I love the colors and the pattern!

3. I couldn’t find this brand either, but I did love the cut and the style. (It seems i’m into preppy sailor things lately.) The brown lining and stripes is nautical and summery, but can be translated for fall. For summer, It can be worn over a bikini at the beach, or with high waisted shorts and sandals. For fall, this is slouchy enough to wear over leather leggings, and would look great paired with a maroon jacket or knee high socks and boots.

4. This is from Dior’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. I didn’t find the price (but I think we just know it is mind-blowing). I have been really into statement necklaces lately. This pearl-embroidered piece is perfect because it isn’t too much. You could wear this with a plain white tee and jeans to add some color, or you could use it with a beautiful dress for weddings or cocktail parties. The color is beautiful (I predict it will be big this fall), and I’ll be on the lookout for imitations!

Be on the lookout for some gold stacked rings, printed dresses for fall, nautical slouchy shirts, and colorful statement necklaces!
