Oh, the Weather Outside is Frightful…

6 12 2009

…but inside, it’s all hot chocolate, roaring fires, eggnog and mistletoe. Christmas is around the corner and there is no better season to bust out your sparkliest, most outrageous looks. No one you know is throwing a holiday bash? Throw one yourself! Nearly everyone gets infected by the seasonal goodwill, and it’s the perfect time for a smashin’ getup. Not to mention, there’s always some damn good munchies around.

The little black dress is a classic for parties. It’s easy, quick, looks great, and is always appropriate. You can go sexy-vixen with some skinny stilettos and a fab red lippie (again, the holidays are the perfect time for trying this!) or go more glam with some eye-catching heels and glittering earrings. There’s really no end at all to what you can do with a LBD…

Or you can go with a trend this year and try a super-sequined dress; it’s pretty much guaranteed all eyes will be on you- things this blinged out are practically visible from space. Nude heels will make your legs seem extra long, and keep the tone of the outfit from being too crazy and busy.

For the more casual get-togethers dark jeans are great- comfy as all get out but not sloppy. Adorable flats are great for those of us who, when tottering about in heels, are¬†known as ‘Public¬†Enemy #1″, or just if your tootsies are feeling a bit sore. A pretty blouse gives you just the right amount of polish.

Embrace your inner peacock and flaunt some silks, satins, pearls, lace, glitter and glam this holiday season!





Wear This.

Wandering idly through the vast internet on my lunch break, I came across the online dress shop Courtesian Boutique. While the prices are in British pounds, it has a wide selection of really lovely dresses that could work for bridesmaids, prom goers, maybe even a very modern wedding.

Also: Check this dress. Cute, nothing super original but with some nice tulle layers… But the name is what blows this gown out of the water.

Bossy Knickers!

Yes, you heard me. This is the Bossy Knickers dress:

Hee hee. I would wear this with no panties, just to be a smart ass.
