What to wear to the holiday Party/Dinner Event


Hello beautiful ladies, thanks for stopping by my blog. I have an event to attend on sunday night which is going to be my first party for the holiday season and I spent a little bit of time today trying to figure out what to wear to this event. It's my friend's wedding anniversary this weekend and she is hosting a dinner for her friends to celebrate the occasion. I was not able to enjoy holiday parties last year the way I would have loved to because I was pregnant in my last trimester and had my baby on Christmas day. This year,  I plan to enjoy myself 100% in every event I attend and I will start first by enjoying my outfits...:-). I'm also planning a party on Christmas day to celebrate my son's birthday.

Now back to the topic at hand, I had a realization that holiday party looks can be placed in two categories; glitz and glamorous and simple and chic. The glitz and glamorous look are those looks that really celebrate the spirit and fun of the holiday season and event to the fullest while the simple and chic is just laid back but still fun. With this idea in mind, I went on Polyvore and created looks to suit each occasion. I created skirts, dresses and pants outfits with coordinating winter coats for style and warmth. Now, I wish I could just call forth all these items into my closet; maybe I should pray more in order to perform that feat...:-). So, which of these sets do you prefer?

     There you have it my friends...:-). Do you think the simple and chic outfits can be just as fun as the glitz and glamorous ones? In my opinion, we do not really need to wear sequins and shiny outfits this season although it can be fun to do so too. I mean, this is the time of the year that ladies really indulge in sequins especially at New-year parties however, any outfit that is clean, fun and chic would do just fine too. It can be simple and fabulous at the same time. No need for complicated stuff that needs elaborate decoding or assembly. This reminds me of a quote I saw on a church sign when I was driving to work a few days ago and it goes;

                                       Church: Assembly required (you get the play on words right?...:-)).

                                           Thanks so much for stopping by
