Holiday Party Attire

Tis the season for cocktail dresses and heels (and eating and drinking, as I keep saying). I had a party last week, my company’s party is tomorrow and I’m attending the tree lot party later in the month. I didn’t know it, but after laying out all of my dresses I saw a theme. Some sort of black pattern, classy and (pretend) grown up with a pop of color to keep it interesting.


Last weekend, for my friend’s cocktail Christmas party, I wore this short sleeve patterned dress with plain black heels. I love the pattern but it was missing something, it needed some color. So I pulled out the brightest necklace I could find, to add a little sass to the outfit (it was well received).


For my work party, I have a long sleeve black velvet dress (notice subtle velvet pattern) and black heels, again I needed some character so I added this (intense by itself) BaubleBar necklace to spice it up a bit.


The tree lot party will definitely require a long sleeve dress (it’s at Fort Mason with the trees, and its like a refrigerator inside). So I got this long sleeve dress, with festive red hearts and red heels to match! I hope you all enjoy your Christmas parties this year and that you get to dress up, and of course that you eat, drink and be merry!
