[Dream Outfit] What to Wear for a Holiday/Christmas Party



  Wednesday, December 14, 2011 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,,, 
One of the things we all worry about during the holiday season is what to wear for all our various outings.  I only have two parties to go to (Christmas Eve at my parents house and Christmas at my Grandmas...no New Years party for me) and I will wear the same thing twice, don't judge!  Most girls wear dresses, but why not switch it up with some fun dress pants!  Pants can be just as dressy as a dress, you just have to find the right pair, for example VELVET! This outfit is more expensive than my Dress for Less posts (it is a Dream Outfit, afterall) BUT everything is on sale, so that's a plus. I went a little crazy with all the textures and colors, but it's the holiday's, you can be crazy!

For this dream outfit I chose a pair of pants that I actually bought for myself on Sunday with a gift card I won from Lydia!  My outfit won't be this awesome though, sadly (I am planning to wear mine with my leopard Miu Mius and no idea what I'll wear on the top). Unless, of course, the pants don't fit and I'll have to exchange them (they should arrive at my house today)

Pants: Elie Tahari via Shopbop $124 [50%] or $99.20 [if you order by Thursday & use the coupon code EXTRA20]
Top: Theyskens' Theory via Net-a-Porter $150 [60% off]
Pumps: Miu Miu via Net-a-Porter $378 [50% off]
Necklace: By Malene Birger via Shopbop $73.50 [30% off]

Annoyingly, just two days after I bought these ShopBop decided to have a coupon code for an extra 20% off sale items, meaning I could have gotten these for $99 as opposed to $124 (I had my $100 gift card so I really paid $24, but that doesn't matter).  So I emailed them to ask for a price adjustment. RIGHT as I was in the middle of this blog post they emailed back and said they would make a one time exception...THIS is why I love Shopbop so much! They have such amazing Customer Service!

P.S. Here are some more pant ideas for Christmas/Holiday Parties (of course these are expensive options, so you will probably want to find cheaper versions, but hey, if you can afford them go for it!)
J.Crew $250
Alice & Olivia $330
Lanvin $1555
Stella McCartney $1,495

P.P.S. A ton of items in Net-a-Porter's End of Season Sale have been reduced further! Make sure to check it out!!

  20. those Miu Miu heels are spectacular but way out of my price range. You think I could get away will taking plain pumps, spraying the glue, and then sprinkling some glitter on them :)
