A bunch of you have asked me to share more photos of this outfit from my post a few days ago, so here you go! This was easily my favorite outfit of the three I shared, probably because of the soft tones that are juxtaposed by the edgy metallic blazer. Love a good combo like that - kind of like combo platters at fast food restaurants. You gotta go combo or else it’s just b-b-b-boring!

Ok, enough of combo platters.

Though I’m not one to repeat outfits that frequently, I have a feeling this one is going to come home to San Francisco with me this weekend because it’s calling for a holiday party STAT!

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


Sequins and Jerseys

I’ve never really considered myself a sequin kind of girl. They’ve always felt a bit too flashy for my taste and I just never really felt like myself wearing them. However, as more and more brands continue to create sequined pieces, I can’t help but find myself drawn to their lustrous sparkle. While I can’t imagine wearing a sequined dress with flirty heels and a cute little clutch to a dinner party, I do love the idea of wearing them during the day time with more casual fabrics like jersey knits. Whoever said sparkles were only for evening attire was seriously mistaken. Here are some of my current jersey/sequin cravings.


  1. All Saints Aztec Dress - $460
  2. Haute Hippie Marianne Long Skirt - $265
  3. Alternative Apparel Burnout Tee - $36
  4. Vince Sequin Mini Skirt - $412
  5. Topshop American Flag Print Tee -$45
  6. Echo Design Scarf - $28
  7. Neil Barrett Black Padded-Shoulder Jersey Dress -$200
  8. JCrew Sequin Boy Tee - $70
  9. Gryphon Academy Vest - $445
  10. Sam Edelman Lorissa - $200
  11. French Connection Galaxy Jersey Sequin Dress -$72
  12. T by Alexander Wang Playsuit - $45
  13. Antik Batik Florine Sequin Shoulder Bag -$370
  14. Topshop Loopback Runner Shorts -$32
