Holiday Party Edit: Metallic Pleated Skirt & Tiered Ruffle Sweater

With Thanksgiving officially behind us, it’s now one of my favorite seasons of the year: Holiday Party Season! I love this time of year because it’s totally okay to wear all things sparkly and shiny. I have six holiday parties over the next two weeks, and I plan to repeat-wear the below outfit to a few of them. I adore this pleated metallic (trend alert) Rebecca Taylor skirt, and dove gray ruffle sleeve Endless Rose sweater (from two years ago). I completed the look with a red lip- perfect for holiday parties (or any time of year!) and my favorite ankle strap PVC heels. This look is conservative and would also be perfect for a work holiday party!

Who else is excited for the holidays?!

Leopard Drop Waist Sweater Dress & Bright Rockstuds

One of my favorite prints to wear is leopard print, and I particularly love leopard print for fall. It’s so fun and whimsical! I got this drop waist sweater dress a few years ago at Ann Taylor Loft, and I love how flouncy it is (very fun to twirl in). It’s also work appropriate. I paired the look with my hot pink Valentino rockstuds to add a pop of color.

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving!

Classic Houndstooth Coat for Fall

I know we had one winter snow storm in New York City already, but let’s go back to fall for a second! I am still loving houndstooth for fall, and I have had this coat for almost a decade! It just goes to show you that classics can stick around. I kept the rest of the look really simple: black! I added some feminine touches with my pearl embellished shoes and whimsical heart shaped sunglasses.

I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving this week already! Also, how gorgeous are these fiery orange trees?!

Downtown Look: Fuchsia for Fall

I will keep this one short but sweet: fuchsia for fall! I love the bright and bold hue of this silk fluttery top by Parker. I am a sucker for any piece that has cloth buttons! I kept the look downtown and edgy with raw-hem jeans, my favorite studded buckle booties, matching gold accessories and whimsical heart-shaped sunglasses.

Fall Downtown Look: Houndstooth, Lace & Ruby Velvet Booties

One of my favorite things about dressing for the fall season is…houndstooth! I love a good houndstooth print, and I particularly loved this dress (which is 9 years old!) because it was mixed with sexy black lace at the top. I kept the look “fall” with burgundy velvet lace-up booties. What is more fall than burgundy and velvet?! I completed the look with my this-season smaller cateye sunglasses to keep my style downtown and edgy.

I can’t believe it’s almost holiday party season!
