Rave: Holiday Dressing

So the start of the holiday season may still be a few weeks away
(Justin Bieber’s Christmas CD won’t be in rotation until December 1st. We’re counting down) but with
our busy schedules, and multiple holiday parties lined up, we’re already
planning our outfits (any excuse to wear metallic and sparkles!). Here are some
of our favourite looks for this holiday season.

Office party
If your holiday party is anything like ours, it starts off as a dinner but quickly becomes a dance party and sing-a-long. This Dallin Chase sequin dress will seamlessly take us from a tame dinner to the dance floor.

Buy it here.


Girls Christmas party
We want to be in the holiday spirit, but comfortable when
celebrating the holidays with our closest friends. These Fidelity Sheffield
Rose jeans fit the bill perfectly. Paired with a loose black blouse and pumps,
we’ll still be able to have an extra hors d’oeuvre (or two) and not have to worry
about exposing the inevitable food baby. 



Family Holiday Party
We LOVE this camilla and marc Great Fear Jacket to sport to
the family holiday party. The sleeves zip off – perfect for
hitting the town with cousins and siblings once the parents, aunts and
uncles have hit the hay after too much eggnog and spiced wine.



Boyfriend’s Family Holiday party
We want to look pretty, but classy for the boyfriend’s
holiday party. This PJK dress in maroon (the color of the season) is a perfect
feminine look for hanging with his g-ma & g-pa.



New Year’s Eve
The 3.1 Phillip Lim Sequin Collage Dress is the perfect
look for ringing in 2013. Crepe panels stand out on this sequinned shift dress that’s sure to 
start the year on the right foot.

Fashion-able: Fall trending topics

Remember back in August when NYFW Fall 11 took off? We do too…vaguely.
For those that need a calendar reminder, and with fall now actually around the corner (truth can be harsh, we know), we wanted to refresh fashion tastebuds with trends to look forward to and attempt, come the turning of the leaves.Sigh. At least there’s some silver lining to the end of summer.
Glitter gone wild
Sparkles twinked under the flashbulbs on the runway. Be it accessories, a dress, or even a jacket, this fall is your time to shine bright.

Polka-dilly
Polka dots lighten any mood and have the ability to air their youthful playfulness to an elegant and classy outfit. Wear ’em well, so as not to look like a junior miss.
Stella McCartney meshes sheer fabric and polka dots to create a stunning, curvy silhouette.

Marc Jacobs takes dotting his “I’s” one step further with extreme patent leather dottage.

Colour me mine
Forget black for your holiday parties. Colour is where it’s at this season. Take this quiz to find out what colours suit you best. (Yes, this links to a Seventeen quiz. You know you want to do one again, for old time’s sake).

So there you have it – lovely colours, prints and textures to look forward to in the coming months. How can you not be excited for a fall that involves sequins?
