Red or Green – What to Wear to Your Company’s Holiday Party

Hello lovelies,

Happy Monday! Were you able to decorate your tree this weekend? We went hunting for some toddler-appropriate ornaments as you know little hands like to explore EVERYTHING, so the tree would be as child-proof as possible!

As the holidays are fast approaching and we are all getting ready, I decided to show you my three outfit options for a company’s holiday party. I’ve always liked metallic dresses for the holidays, but this year the choice is between red and green.

Green V Neck 3/4 Sleeve Basic Knee Length Women’s A Line Dress by VIPSHOP (the SWEET look) You know lace has a special place in my heart, so naturally this dress caught my eye! Doesn’t the fabric texture look beautiful in the green color? I find the dainty scallop detailing around the neckline very intricate and appealing. The bell sleeves and A-line silhouette both add so much femininity to the look. The dress is a midi which is one more reason it would be the perfect partner in crime for your company’s celebration. Add some red nail polish and either metallic or black accessories and you are all ready for the coming festivities!

One Side Tiered Ruffle Trim Dress by ROMWE (look “En FUEGO!”) – this year RED is BIG! You know most designers sent all red looks down the runway for fall and winter. This dress hits the trend as well as a holiday note just right. It is plain yet bold, simple yet makes a statement with its silhouette and pretty ruffle shoulder detail! It is a midi, however still appropriately sexy as the bodycon hugs your curves. One more benefit–it is only $19.99! This dress would look beautiful with a pair of golden heels and clutch, or red pumps and a black bag for an added punch. I kept my accessories the same for the three looks, so that I can let the dresses shine. This dress is also great for a NYE celebration and I cannot wait to wear it to either.

Frill Neck High Waist Midi Dress by Shein (the VINTAGE charmer) – OK, if you are a girl who digs vintage charm, this is the dress for you! It comes with a frill Victorian collar, high waist, an asymmetrical tea length hemline, a loose silhouette, and the most intricate button detail on the sleeves. The deep green color of the satin shimmers beautifully in the sun and would shine in style under some holiday lighting as well. This dress is also available in black. I am showing you two possible ways to wear this dress:

1) As is – letting the hem of the dress fly free. I like the line this way as it it very true to its vintage character.

2) Tied bottom – if you want a way to add more definition you can go for an intricate belt or tie the bottom. There is enough fabric to do so and the tie looks like a flower, which is still in tune with the vintage character of the dress.

From Cocoon to a Beautiful Midi

Hello, beauties!

Happy mid-week! Doesn’t is feel joyous to know you are getting over the hump and half-way trough to the weekend?! On that note let me share a few fun facts about a fabric I love–SILK!

MERISU Silk Green Midi Dress, Nude Clutch, Banana Republic Gold Heels, Polaroid Round Glasses, Summer 2017oord_in_style_MERISU Silk Green Midi Dress, Nude Clutch, Banana Republic Gold Heels, Polaroid Round Glasses, Lucky brand Jewelryoord_in_style_MERISU Midi Dress, Nude Clutch, Banana Republic Gold Heels, Polaroid Round Glasses, Nordstrom Sale

Did you know thatย silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm? It is a natural protein fiber that can be woven into fabric. Silk textile was first developed in ancient China and has been considered a luxurious material since 3630 BC, but is currently widely used in the medical field as well (magical properties, I tell ya!). It is very comfortable to wear in warm weather and while active, because it is very absorbent. It is also great for cold weather, as its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin. OK, so why am I going on and on about silk?!? Well, because I am in love with my new silk midi dress from METISU.

Why is this dress my new favorite?

  • Silk is perfect for the summer heat and it does indeed give the dress a luxurious look, while my skin enjoys its softness;
  • If you have read my prior article you know I love dresses that can go from a day in the office to a night out and this one fits the bill as it has midi length, half-sleeve, scoop neckline that all feels conservatively-elegant;
  • The dress may look simple, but has so many details to enjoy: paneled design, tied waist, a split front and pockets! Yes, pockets – and I so LOVE having those!! Let’s be honest – I never use them as such, but just knowing they are there makes me feel cool!
  • The color is not something you see every day and I know I will be wearing this dress well into Fall (when the weather permits that is) as it combined perfectly with earthy neutrals.
