Holiday Blowouts

November 16, 2011

Thanksgiving is practically a week away, I’ve booked my plane ticket back to San Francisco for Christmas, and I’ve got about five parties coming up in the next couple of weeks – suffice it to say, the holiday season is here!

Fa la la la la la la la la!

As with every holiday season (see here and here), I’m on the hunt for a few new festive dresses to make the coming month that much more exciting. While last year my picks were a bit more scattered, this year I’ve narrowed my party dress wishlist down to three categories/trends: bold patterns, updated LBDs, and sequins and embellishments. Now comes the even harder part of narrowing it down to just one or two pieces!

Which ones would you choose? (Keep in mind the Thanksgiving dress always needs a bit of room around the waist…)

  1. Tibi Rococo Print Dress – $462
  2. Betsey Johnson Envy the Heiress Dress – $398
  3. Edun Marble Silk Chiffon Dress – $500
  4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Panthera Shift Dress – $358
  5. Topshop Tinsel Fringe Dress – $120
  6. AllSaints Char Dress – $295
  7. Rebecca Taylor Lace Bustier – $425
  8. Vanessa Bruno Athé Black-Beaded Dress – $360
  9. Anthropologie Wink & Rimple Dress – $228
  10. AllSaints Erodes Dress – $495
  11. Vince Sequin-Embellished Crepe Dress – $495
  12. Philosophy di Alberta Ferreti Embellished Lace-Overlay Dress – $322


Come Sale Away

September 13, 2011

Fall shopping has always been my favorite, but it also happens to be the most expensive. Leather jackets, sturdy boots and chunky sweaters are, for the most part, much pricier than summer dresses and cut-offs. While I’m still lusting after the items I featured in this post, I can’t help but be tempted by all the amazing sales happening right now. I’m amazed at how many clearance pieces are as functional for fall as they are for spring and summer! SHWING!

Here are some items I’m currently drooling over and most likely adding to my shopping cart before they go bye bye. Isn’t it the best when things you love are on sale!?
