Casual Holiday Glam

This next look is a trend that pops up every season pairing a chunky sweater with a dress. I love the effect of a full skirt. It really glams up a look effortlessly. Paring it with a chunky sweater just enhances the casual vibe. It’s perfect for a daytime look or a day to night just take off the sweater add a statement necklace and you get a completely different vibe.

Day to Night

I’m all about a good day to night outfit and this versatile look can be worn to any holiday event on your calendar. Not only is this satin pleated skirt very on trend, it’s such a beautiful holiday piece. This look can be worn with or without the shoulder cape, but if you’re looking to make a statement and to give this look a, “wow factor”, it’s definitely a must have piece! I paired it with a simple earring and no other accessories because I didn’t want to take away from that beautiful cape. I also added a navy blue coat with this look to stay warm.

Fun & Flirty

I’m all about a fun look when it comes to holiday parties and this little number is fun and flirty. If you’re in warmer weather you don’t have to pair this look with stockings, but I think that it adds a fun aspect to this look.

Sexy Little Thing

Bring on the glam this holiday season with this velvet jumpsuit. Theirs something about velour than makes an item look and feel so luxurious. Since it is winter I paired this look with a beautiful faux fur coat which up the glam vibe that much more. The chest area was exposed, so I decided that a beaded body chain bralette would make a real statement with this look. Now for shoes, I’m more of a flats’ girl, so I felt that my thrifted Valentino‘s tied into this look perfectly, but you can pair it with heels if that’s your thing.

NYE Glamazon

What’s a holiday look book without a full on sparkle and shine number?! This dress is the most expensive item in the look-book , but it’s such a statement piece and perfect for that NYE party you’ve been invited to. Oh and before you ask, “is it to much?”, GIRL NO! If you can’t bring the sparkle on NYE when can you?? As always you can pair this with heels, but I was going for more of an urban city vibe and threw on my sock booties.

Gala on a budget

Are you planning on going to a glamorous NYE party? Not only does this dress look and feel luxurious, but it’s budget friendly! You could wear it as is with heels, but I wanted to enhance the drama and paired it with a gorgeous belt from Thomas Knoell Designs and a faux fur coat. To bring in an edgy vibe I paired this look with my favorite sock booties that I can’t get enough of!
