Razzle Dazzle

If there’s any night to dress to impress, it’s New Year’s Eve, because there’s no better way to ring in a new year than wearing your best party outfit. 

My New Year’s Eve plans are quite different this year by just going to a house party instead of some NYC club, like I did last year, but I still might wear this metallic jumpsuit because I love it so much.  Plus, there are worse things in life than being the most overdressed party guest.

But, have no fear, if I don’t decide to wear this number on Monday night, I already got great use out of it when I was in London for my company’s extravagant holiday party. You should have heard all of  the compliments I received on this shiny, metallic jumpsuit. 

So, keep on scrolling for a little New Year’s Eve fashion inspiration, as well as an outfit idea for those days and nights beside New Year’s Eve when you want to be extra glamorous. 

Naturally, before my two week adventure in London, I did some shopping, and stumbled across the store Francesca’s, which is my favorite boutique for trendy jewelry and fun accessories. While browsing the store, I was impressed with the selection of party outfits for the holiday season. Immediately, my eyes were drawn to this jumpsuit, not only because we all know my love for jumpsuits, but also because of the shiny, metallic color.  I knew this piece would be a big hit for my holiday party and New Year’s Eve.

Since, my jumpsuit is sleeveless and unfortunately during this time of year you can’t get away without some sort of outer layer, I chose to wear this jumpsuit with a black, fringe shawl. I believe this shawl is from Lord and Taylor’s, but it’s my mom’s so I’ll have to ask her exactly where she got it. But for my holiday party, I paired this jumpsuit with a leather jacket, which looked just as nice. To be honest, I should have worn my leather jacket for this photoshoot because not sure if you can tell through my smiles, but I was freezing my butt off.

For accessories, I kept it pretty simple (well if you count those silver dangling statement earrings from Express simple) because this shimmery jumpsuit is obviously the center of attention.  As for my necklace, shoutout to my boyfriend for gifting me this beautiful silver delicate necklace. And then for my silver bangle shoutout to my mom for letting me wear it for this post, I’ll have to double check where the bracelet is from. 

Not only did my company fly us all out to London for its holiday party, but they also gifted me this stylish, snake skin like heeled booties. I believe they are from ASOS or some sort of London boutique I need to know the name of because I want to buy everything from that store. 

Well, that wraps up another style post, specifically my last style post of 2018. I hope everyone has a fun and safe New Year’s Eve, no matter what your plans may be. And here’s to another stylish and awesome 2019. Talk to you all next year.

Holiday Glam

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to trade the autumn decorations for all things Christmas and fully embrace the Christmas season (which I’m sure many of you have already done well before Thanksgiving).  This is my first holiday season living in New York City and the city sure knows how to celebrate.  This time of the year is so magical with the streets filled with Christmas lights, the restaurants all decorated, and on every street corner you can find Christmas trees being sold.  Although, a full sized Christmas tree wouldn’t fit in my tiny studio apartment, I still improvised and got my space ready for Christmas.  Every aspect of my life is decked out for the holidays so of course my outfits have to be too, which is the main focus of today’s post.  Keep on scrolling to read all about my holiday glam style.

I’ve always wanted a plaid skirt but going to private school all my life and having to wear a uniform everyday consisting of a plaid skirt has really negatively impacted my thoughts on this print.  But this season, I was determined to get over my disdain for plaid and thanks to this beautiful skirt from Zara I did.  This plaid skirt is nothing like all the uniform skirts I’ve worn throughout the years.  Instead, it features a pretty, winter themed color palette and this asymmetrical ruffle detail.

No way did my school uniform ever consist of a leather jacket, a silver jacket to be precise, so this piece totally made me feel like I wasn’t wearing a school uniform but an edgy, glam look.  This metallic jacket from Forever 21 has been getting tons of use throughout the years because it certainly spices up any look.

To make this look cold weather appropriate I’m just wearing a pair of classic black tights, but for shoes I went all out by wearing black stilettos.  The holiday time calls for some glam and it’s fun to ditch your usual black booties for a pair of heels.  I’m pleasantly surprised how comfortable these shoes are and how stylish they can be, especially with the silver accents.  I can’t believe I found these heels at Payless for an incredible price.

So for jewelry, I’m wearing my statement earrings from H&M.  Can you believe I got these chic face earrings in the Halloween section?  Nothing spooky about these cool earrings.  Also, since I shot my Thanksgiving outfit (see here) the same day I shot this outfit, I  forgot to take off my choker.  It works with this look but I probably wouldn’t wear it again with this outfit, but oh well.

Although, it took me all this time to start wearing plaid again, I personally feel there is no better pattern for the holidays than plaid.  I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and all the lovely things that come with it.  Let me know in the comments below what are some of your favorite things to do and wear during this time of year.
