Polished Wednesdays: How to Wear Your Holiday Dress Year Round
I recently posted a few sequin pieces I have my eye on, over at RedefinedMom.com. I fell in love with this Starlit Stripe dress from Anthropologie when I tried it on at the November birthday bash I was invited to (even though my birthday is NOT is November?) Fellow blogger and friend Meg said it was a "Carrie moment." Whatever it was, I loved it, but the price tag (it's now on major sale!) was a little bit overwhelming (even with 15% off) for a dress that is memorably not-basic; I'm also not a fan of showing up to a party in the same dress as everyone else (ready-to-wear problems, sigh.) And that is my inspiration for getting the most out of this dress:
Dress: Starlit Stripes Dress from Anthropologie (now on major sale!)
Look 1, perfect for party #1:
Forever 21 Polka Dot Chiffon Button Down, but wish I had this Adele Polka-Dot washed silk blouse. J.Crew Venus Flytrap necklace
Anthropologie Tabbed Leather belt (comes in really great colors!)
Enzo Angiolini Black Patent Pumps - I love these Kate Spade Jive pumps, almost 50% off!
Look 2, perfect for party #2:
American Eagle Cable Knit sweater in mint (we should all have mint in our closets right now, but here are two alternitives: ASOS Crop Cable Sweater or this wool-blend cable sweater)
Look 3, perfect for a lunch date with the girls:
J.Crew Nolita Denim Jacket (this J.Crew Vintage Denim Jacket is a perfect substitute)
I want to hear from you now, so tell me about your favorite Holiday Dress!
