Can you even believe it’s November??? I can’t, not one bit. And that means that soon holiday season will hit us and we’ll probably feel unprepared. One thing that kind of stresses me out it having outfits for holiday parties- the worst is when you have to frantically shop for something the day before and end up buying something you don’t even like just to have something new to wear. So I want to have one perfect cocktail party outfit ready to go at all times because let’s face it, at a lot of parties you won’t see the same people twice AND we can learn from the French who tend to buy things they love and not care about wearing them over and over because they love them. Financially smart and keeps you more sane. So what’s better than the little black dress- and this year it’s all about mixing that with romantic lace. I for one am straight up obsessed with this Tory Burch version, but found a very similar one by Banana for 1/4 of the price in their Anna Karenina Collection. Paired with sexy stilettos with lace up details and some sparkly jewels and a hint of fur it’s a fabulous, classic yet fun look for any night time event- on a high or low budget!
