Holiday Party

Let the hunt for holiday party attire begin!

I was initially excited to hunt for some party inspiration, but I quickly became discouraged because nothing caught my eye. I quickly decided it was the perfect opportunity to raid my closet for something unexpected and exciting…for party season at least. So really, this outfit came about for two reasons: 1) I wanted to repurpose something I already had and 2) this was my chance to rebel from the tulle skirt trend o’ the season craze.

Joie blouse  / Alexander McQueen blazer  / Dolce & Gabbana pants/ Miu Miu platform booties / Swarovski ring / Stella McCartney pendant  / NARS Heat Wave lipstick  / Essie Tiny Winey nail polish

If I did have the means to slip into this gorgeous Alexander McQueen velvet blazer I certainly would (pay close attention to those pockets), but more than anything this is just for some dressing inspiration. In my case I shall be repurposing my trusty Elizabeth & James black pantsuit, which I suddenly realize I have never actually worn together, and black booties. To make sure I don’t look like I’m coming straight from a power meeting I’ll be going with red lips and nails, and for my hair, I’ll do a take on Rita Hayworth waves. This way it’s all-the-more party worthy and far, far away from an office look. I am once again officially excited for holiday party prep!
