Perfect looks, for all Christmas festivities!

You don't even need to set foot inside a major department store to get the memo that the holiday season is upon us. Tinsel and turkey and bells of all sorts will soon remind you that the hollidays are completley unavoidable, and then slowly, the invitations (read anxiety) will roll in. Chill out and plan ahead. There's sure to be a mid-week bash with everyone from the office, the annual family reunion and at least one friendly holiday soiree featuring he-who-must-not-be-named (not Voldemort, silly.. I am refering to your ex). So, cut the seasonal stress, and get decked out in fabulous winter dresses and trends!


Rock the Christmas or New Years party and catch every ones attention with a luxurious fur jacket, statement jacket, killer heels and gold accessories.  To pull your look all together, add a voluminous burgundy pout!

Plan to attend a swanky Holliday Fundraiser Hosted By Your Fave Fancy Charity-
'Tis the season to give back, and in a big, big way. Anyone who is anyone will be in attendance at this winter's bash, so pull out all the stops and slip into something a little more glamourous. Skip the expected shades of holiday reds and greens, and go for a chic, creamy, neutral frock with some added sequins to top it off.

Planning on attending an 'ugly Christmas sweater' party and you dont really want to look that ugly?
I am all for the ugly sweater bandwagon, but that doesn't mean I am willing to make a complete mockery of myself. Mix heinous yuletide threads with a few super-cute pieces that balance out the silly. Pin-on sleigh bells are (not entirely) optional.

Hoping to be the center of attention at your famileys annual Christmas get together?
There's nothing like good food and good company, and tonight's got it all. Sit around the Horn of Plenty and indulge with your nearest and dearest, who won't judge you after your third helping. Just in case, choose something comfortable and floaty, to camouflage the impending food baby.
