With holiday parties just around the corner, now is the time to really be picking out your perfect holiday dress if you haven't already. And whether you’re attending a black tie ball, an office dinner or a family affair, you’re going to need to look fabulous. I do admit I would've chosen the 'little black dress' in my previous years because if Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's could, I reckoned sticking to the basics were always key. But I was wrong.
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.































It's hard snagging the perfect holiday dress. Especially come Christmas time.
This 3.1 Phillip Lim sequined silk wrap dress caught my eye in a flash. The shimmer is irresistible and a definite eye-catcher.


I love this Mark & James cocktail dress by Badgley Mischka ($395).

When it comes to the color gold, yes will always be my answer.
For someone who loves to outshine everyone else in the perfect holiday dress, a gold cocktail dress would be my choice. 

Or I would choose this gorgeous Lilly Pulitzer chiffon Jillie Dress. The pattern is so exquisite and I'm sure I've mentioned how much I love bright colors before.
