Dress for Less: Holiday Party

  Sunday, December 12, 2010 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
Before I get to my post, I wanted to let you guys know I listed an awesome BRAND NEW DKNY cozy on eBay, bid or buy it now here! I bought 2 at TJ Maxx because the price was so good, I figured one of my lovely followers might enjoy it.  If you win/buy it now let me know and I might include a little something extra in the package :D
This time of year is full of holiday parties so we need a bunch of outfits to wear for all the parties.  You can obviously recycle looks for multiple events, but why not use them as an excuse for more cute outfits? (I'm wearing the same thing on Christmas and Christmas Eve [my Theory dress] ;) which are the only holiday parties I have, but if I had more places to go I would totally get this look.)  

So here's a nice affordable look you can add to your holiday wardrobe!  I went for a twist on the classic LBD with a sequin and lace dress (the back of the dress has some lace on the shoulders) and finished it off with some pearl/light pink accessories!  The best's only $84!!!
I don't like using Forever 21 too much for these anymore but its a good place to get cheap jewelry and stuff.  It doesn't last as long but the price is right ;)
(I'm not saying I don't like Forever 21...I'm just still a bit angry at them for their dumb return/exchange policy and I know some people dislike them for the quality)
Dress - Yumi via ASOS $37.93
Heels - Forever 21 $19.80
Ring - Forever 21 $4.80
Earrings - Forever 21 $5.80
Tights - ASOS $7.76
Clutch/Wallet - Forever 21 $7.50
TOTAL: $83.69

Better Heels - ASOS $51.72
(the total with these instead of the others is $115.71)
