Party Picks

Party Picks
(Click picture to shop)

Pretty soon invitations to parties will start arriving. If you are like me, you like to plan out your party outfit days or perhaps even weeks in advance. While the red dress pictured above is absolutely perfect, it is out of my price range ($320). I've put together a few items that would be perfect for your next holiday party. Whether sequins are your thing, or maybe perhaps just a jeweled cuff, the following list should have you covered.

All under $40, these peplum tops (each slightly embellished in some way) would be affordable options. Pair them with jeans, leather pants, or black satin cropped pants for a perfect party look.

Sometimes all you need is just a little shimmer to spice your look up. Adding shimmer to just one element of your look should be sufficient. 

Have a great day!

  11. I definitely like to plan out my holiday outfits well in advance. I love the idea of pairing a nude pump with the red dress so the focus stays on the dress.

  17. I have my office holiday party this Thursday and for some reason, I can't figure out what to wear (actually, it is because I don't need to buy anything but I really just want something new, and deemed everything in my closet as not right...) Thinking about doing a red dress and lots of jewels like your first look!

  18. I love the peplum tops! I usually never have holiday parties to go to :-( so there's usually no reason for me to buy a holiday dress. But the peplum tops would look great at a party and could be dressed down!

  19. Yes! A good nude is so worth the price because when you have a holiday dress that really makes a statement they don't distract!
