What To Wear for the Holiday Fête

The month of frivolity is frolicking in holiday jubliance!
Eggnog lattés and gingerbread gâteaus lacquer the moments of merry cheer as sequined stockings bask in illumination. The candy-coated confection of garlands, baubles and snowflakes fuse into the realm as holiday jetsetters equipped in resort paraphernalia escape into a rapt slumber of vacationing dreams. 

December, of course, is also the month of winter soirées and festivities. 
Admist the clinking of champange flutes and sleek present swaps, your wardrobe beckons for the perfect holiday ensemble fabricated for the winter tête-àt-tête.
Venture no further, couture-thirsty cougars....

Dress - Desire Clothing | Jacket - Warehouse | Shoes - Christian Louboutin | Bag - Valextra Isis | Tights - Modcloth | Ring - Oasis | Lipstick - Yves St. Laurent | Nail Polish - Butter London in Chancer

Since Saint Nicholas's fame waltzes in a delicatessen of reds and whites, the choice guise for the evening  should adequately replicate its hues. Construct the foundation of this ensemble with a classic red dress, of your preferred cut and textile. Send the pair of skinny jeans off to the guillotine for a Marie Antoinette-esque decapitation and settle with a pair of black tights in place. As in the reverie clouds of footwear, opt for a pair of black ankle boots. Allow your nails to drench in an opulent bath of a ruby-kissed nail lacquer and wed accordingly to a matching ring. Lips should delinate in a deep red color, while essential feast-hopping items should dwell in the contents of a white patent clutch. Execute properly with a fitted white coat over top, furnished to cure the appetite of retro-chic. 

Dress - Dorothy Perkins | Shoes - Steve Madden | Bag - Marc Jacobs | Ring - Vince Camuto | Eyeshadow - Stila | Mascara - Laura Mercier | Nail Polish - Butter London in All Hail The Queen

An elegant invitation veneered in a glossy cloisonné craves for the matching banquet of the night. A one-shoulder cream frock worn while consuming cavair duos well with a bejeweled-spiked pump. Tonight's tote consists of a quilted bow clutch, the humble abode perfect for storing the trendy stash of Chanel giftcards (destined for the wallets of your dear family and friends, perhaps?). Adorn with a beige-hued ring and a quaint coat of a bister-mocha nail polish concoction. Fringe fluttery lashes with swipes of voluminizing mascara and treat sparkling, bare eyelids to a sienna douse of eyeshadows. 

Dress - Thakoon | Bag - Juicy Couture | Shoes - Yves St. Laurent | Ring - Debanhams | Bangles - Tillys | Eyeshadow - Shiseido | Nail Polish - Butter London in Diamond Geezer

Camouflaged in Burton and posing in a masquerade of McQueen, an exquisite aristocratic nymph can daintily waltz in the seven seas whilst donning blueblooded accoutrement. Accentuate the cuvacious sirens with a form-fitting silk vestment, rouged in a heavenly chroma of royal blue wonders. Strap on a crossbody clutch, bred of crushed velvet and attire pastel-sweet toes with a pair of lustrous, metallic pumps. Cure arm candy appetite with a heaping potluck of matching silver bangles and lavish in a banquet of a classic black ring. The cotillion of nails shall be smeared in creamy oozings of gunnmetal polish and eyes illuminated by shadows of glitter-maven bon vivants. 

Dress - Alice + Olivia | Bag - Topshop | Shoes - Steve Madden | Bracelet - Nordstrom | Blush - NARS | Nail Polish - Butter London in Yummy Mummy

Concieved for the pretty posse of progenies whom do not dwell amongst cashmere mafias or lipsick jungle inhabitants yet, holiday carousements summons for youthful glamour and angelic artistry. Flee from the realm of Voltaire colloqy with a mirthful slice of ruffled, sequined cake. Bask in blissful beauty with a simple, bejeweled cutout bangle and a ruched, bow clutch to park essential Smart Phone gadgets. Bequeath a gloss-lacquered kiss amidst rosy-tinted cheeks, care of blush, and extend graceful handshakes glazed in burgundy-pink nail polish. Garnish the final ensemble with the pièce de résistance: Glittery, bow-crowned heels. 

Hope you have enjoyed this post! Happy holidays!

Yep, I'd pick the maroon look for sure! Thanks for the tips. I noticed you put the butter brand nail polish in all your outfits. Have you used that brand and what do you think of it? A new store that opened up in my city is carrying it and I'm curious if I should try it or not!
