It doesn't hurt to try new styles and trends. If you haven't noticed by now, everyone is all about the basic 'little black dress' or a basic 'little red dress'. This time around, I'm more lenient for the jewel-toned and the shimmery statement cocktail dresses.
For the last month I have processed the thought of throwing a simple and not-too-big Christmas party for my grade. And sadly, as it all comes down to two weeks left until Christmas, I know how much last minute planning...sucks. A rushed party that is fun would be an understatement. I've been just so busy lately, I didn't bother giving the idea much thought. My fault, I know.
After planning the fashion show a couple of weeks ago, I've realized how much I've missed party planning. Like Blair Waldorf and fashion shows, I have a thing for party planning. Not that I do it too often, but I will never miss out on an opportunity to be creative.
I know how much I'm going to regret not throwing a party this year simply because I had so much time to plan for it. Maybe next year I'll be a little more prepared.

For someone who loves to outshine everyone else in the perfect holiday dress, a gold cocktail dress would be my choice.
