Seasonal Sparkles

November 17, 2011

While we’re on the subject of holiday dresses, allow me to introduce one of my new favorite sparkly numbers from Juicy Couture. Along with being in one of those murkier colors that you all know I love, the gauzy layer on top is actually removable which means I can wear this as a full-blown sequined dress if I want (and who wouldn’t want to?).

Even though this dress is a bit too fancy shmancy for my family’s Thanksgiving dinner, I can definitely imagine putting this on for one of my favorite Christmas traditions, The Nutcracker.

Do you have a favorite holiday tradition? See more of mine over at Juicy Couture!

Summer Soirées

One of my favorite things about summer is the fact that everyone and their mother wants to throw a party. Birthday parties, 4th of July extravaganzas and backyard barbecues are quickly filling up my calendar which has me filling up my shopping cart with new summer party dresses!  Woopy doopy doop doop doop!

Along with lots of color, this summer I’m really feeling printed minis, pristine whites and not surprisingly, bohemian maxis. Now, if you’re a sloppy clutz like me I highly recommend saving those “pristine whites” for non-barbecue sauce related activities because one shlop on the dress and you’re screwed. But I didn’t have to tell you that…

As much as I love the simplicity of throwing on a dress and calling it a day, sometimes I want something that won’t reveal my undies everytime the wind blows. Well, thanks to the return of the playsuit I now have a bit more variety on those mornings when I don’t have the energy to piece together an outfit and need something that I can easily slip into and walk out the door.

Like dresses it’s as easy to dress-up a playsuit as it is to dress one down. With a good pair of gladiator sandals and a fedora you’ll be all set to sit indian style at a bbq or just strap on some wedges and chunky bangles for a night out on the town. From full-length pantsuits to short, flouncy rompers the variety of playsuits is endless, but I’ve gone ahead and put together some of my current favorites.

  1. Name a Star For You Romper - $43
  2. Forever21 Safari Romper - $24.80
  3. A.P.C. Short Jumpsuit with Shoulder Straps - $210
  4. Madison Marcus Lace Detail Jumper - $300

  7. Chloé Belted Cotton Playsuit - $255.50

As a whole, I was not very impressed with the dress choices of this years Golden Globes. That being said, there were a few that stood out to me as favorites.

However, before I reveal my faves, can we just take a second to note that THE HANGOVER won a Golden Globe!!? And that AVATAR beat THE HURTLOCKER!? I’m seriously shocked and embarrassed by the people who voted for those films to win best picture.

Enough bitching…here are my favorite dresses.

Carey Mulligan in Nina Ricci

January Jones in Lanvin


Dianna Agron

Emily Blunt in Dolce & Gabbana

Cameron Diaz in Alexander McQueen

Kate Winslet in YSL

Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior

Drew Barrymore in Versace
