Will it be Black Tie or a Casual Evening for you?

I feel like New Years is split down the middle, the people who want to paint the town in sparkles, high heels and black tie, and the others who want to ring in the evening  with bubbly and bare feet.  I have been both, more often than naught we are the later.  I do love the excitement of putting on an new dress and dialing up the glam.  This is the perfect time to nab a gorgeous dress (many are on sale!).. Some of my favorites are this gorgeous yellow dress, this strapless navy dress, and this embellished gown.  Need some accessories?  This sparkly clutch and these sandals go with many of the dresses.

Nothing says festive more than a bright red dress with lots of sparkles!  I found this beautiful strapless dress and had fun coming up with different priced accessories to wear with it. If strapless isn’t for you, I found some other great choices as in this dress, this option and this jumpsuit.  They are all classic styles you can wear for years to come and I highly recommend buying a pair of silver sandals and clutch as you will pair them with so many things you already own over and over again. What are you wearing this Holiday season??
