I've been wanting to do some Holiday Party posts for a while now - but in between our situation with Jack, Bill's birthday & holiday stress, I haven't had much time. But I wasn't about to miss this week's Copy Cat Closet challenge - SEQUINS! Now, normally you guys know I love sparkle in everyday outfits. But, if you're unsure of bedazzled territory, the holidays are the best excuse to experiment since sequins & glitter are actually encouraged! And though it would be easy for me to go slightly overboard, I kept my first holiday look super tame. :)
How amazing is this dress?! I scored it majorly on sale from HauteLook last November. It's beyond perfect for all my Christmas soirees. I love that it isn't super tight (trying to keep it classy here folks!) but has amazing details like strong shoulders and gunmetal colored sequin discs. The weather in LA has actually been cooperating with the date on the calendar so I picked my favorite Simply Vera tights & black booties to complete the look.
I've been searching for new hair ideas and when I saw this photo from Natalia I instantly fell in love. I just HAD to try it out! Now, I'm totally obsessed! It's not just an ordinary ponytail, but a ponytail with flair y'all! I think the only thing I would change, is to wrap some hair around the ponytail elastic so it's not visible. I picked up this headband in San Diego (15 bucks!) and thought it matched beautifully. Thanks Natalia for challenging me to try something new! :)
Lastly, I didn't quite make it to 300 likes before Sunday as I hoped, but I'm so close! If you haven't "liked" BAD's facebook page - would you be so kind as to hop on over and hit that thumbs up button? I would GREATLY appreciate it! :) Personal pages first, then your blog's page so I can "Like" back! :)
And stay tuned.. I've got a FAB giveaway coming up that I can't WAIT for you to enter!! Who doesn't like free stuff??
