I have a ton of parties to attend this holiday season! I need some great go-to gifts that’ll wow any host and hostess. Any suggestions?
You can never go wrong with a fab picture frame, such as the Heirloom with a View Frame or Touching Memories Frame. Everyone has photographs and probably need a few more frames to display them! If your host is a foodie, give a gift they can enjoy in the kitchen, like the So Slab-ulous Cutting Board or the Blossom-Filled Brunch Tea Towel. Last, but not least, a cute crowd-pleaser — the It’s Eclectic! Candlestick! These colorful candlesticks in rich jewel-toned hues are perfect for dressing up a mantle or dining room table.
What should I wear to holiday dinner with my family? It’s not a super-fancy occasion, but not all that casual either.
I would recommend starting with a simple frock, such as the A Cappella Cutie Dress, and using shoes and accessories to make your outfit as dressy as you’d like. The A Grand Statement Necklace is great for adding sparkle, and The Only Galaxy for Me Heel in Student will give your look a touch of holiday color. Not into dresses? No problem! Swap the dress for trousers and a sweater in a festive hue, then adorn away.
What should I wear to my upcoming work holiday party? I want to be professional, but still show off my style.
Company parties are a chance to share a bit more of your outside-of-work style! Keep it profesh by sticking with silhouettes you’d feel comfortable wearing to work — think A-line dresses, flattering pencil skirts, and tailored trousers — but try trading more buttoned-up color schemes for fun hues, fancy fabrics, and statement-making accessories. For instance, the polished silhouette and festive sheen of the Reminiscent of Royalty Dress makes a chic statement, especially paired with the All Hands on Deco Earrings and the red-haute Trend All, Be All Heel.
