HAPPY HOLIDAYS

We’re in the midst of the Holiday Season and it’s time to think of all the parties and festivities on your social calender. Here are some of my favorite looks from the recent collections appropriate for any holiday gathering. If the designer price point is out of your budget just recreate the look for less!

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
Try a colorful floral pattern dress with curve defining lines. Make sure it shows off your great legs! Choose a shorter flounce hemline and take it to the next level with colorful sky high shoes to match!

BALENCIAGA

A beautiful sashed cocoon cover up with metallic accents will add just the right amount of shimmer for the holidays!

CHANEL


I love the new layered look of a dress over a slim pant it was a key combination to most of the looks Karl sent down the runway. Try lighter weight, interesting, textured fabrics for evening. Note the bold sculptural collar.

DOLCE & GABBANA

Have a black tie event? Try a sequin strapless sheath for a totally sexy look.

       What says holiday better than a pair of black satin pants, topped off by a beautiful top. Stylish and easy.
 
FENDI
                                  
What can I say! Pure perfection, no? Anyway you have the idea…a long flowing gown with a real or faux fur topper in the same color or pattern.

GIVENCHY
Who doesn’t like a red outfit! Just wearing the color will lift your spirits and put a bounce in your step.Try a sheer organza billowy blouse, layered with a contrasting black camisole for extra panache. Add a full skirted bottom.
HELMUT LANG
CUSP BLAZER

Chic and simple. A bracelet length, fitted black blazer, paired with black leather leggings and a white tee. Now all you need to do is accessorize! Try adding two matching cuff bracelets.

ISSEY MIYAKE
                   A modern aesthetic. Artistic expression at it’s best! From the Master, wearable Origami!
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER


So you want to make a lasting impression? A lace pant and top ensemble will do the trick!
Add a fierce leather blazer and please don’t forget the nude or black under garments…and a feather boa!

KENZO
Kenzo Fall  Winter 2012-2013  (3)
     What is more comfortable than a pair of wide leg trousers and an easy top. Try both in a rich jewel tone.
LANVIN
                                  Go bold in a dress and capelet! Try head to toe emerald, or another jewel tone.
MARC JACOBS
40. Vanessa - Lookbooks - Marc Jacobs Collection - Womens Ready to Wear - Spring / Summer 2013
                                                     Sequins galore…Graphic black and white, head to toe!
NINA RICCI

                                                           A beautiful coat for the chilly nights…
OSCAR DE LA RENTA
                                   For an elegant cover-up try a fun and cozy real or faux hooded fur tunic.
PETER SOM
23
                     What an elegant party look in classic black and white. Tuxedo jacket and floor sweeping skirt!
CHADO RALPH RUCCI
          Heading downtown to a gallery fete? Throw on sleek leather pants a cami, with a fantastic over the top jacket!
STELLA McCARTNEY
                                       Be daring, have some fun! Don head to toe brocade in a three piece suit!
TEMPERLEY OF LONDON

I love, love this look! Simple yet elegant and hip! 

VALENTINO
Once again sheer perfection! …in my humble opinion. Try a tiered, belted leopard print dress in a bright hue and add a detachable collar for just the right amount of sweetness.
 
ALEXANDER WANG
       For a fresh look, try an all white outfit. A textured sweater and perhaps a silk taffeta pant. A casual but very chic and wearable look!
YVES SAINT LAURANT
               With white a key color for this holiday season, why not wear a luxurious shoulder bearing jumpsuit.
Z SPOKE 
ZAC POSEN

           For all out glamour, a form fitting richly hued tafetta gown. Make it less serious with an unexpected fun bag!

Add a natural sheepskin rug at the foot of the bed for a touch of luxury; or on either side.
