Ruffles & Bows


As promised - here is another holiday look for one of your upcoming parties! Perfect for any party, except corporate, since it is low cut and short. I feel really girly in this outfit with the ruffles down the dress and the bows and sequins on the shoes. (Here I go with the shiny objects again ha ha ha). I thought the dress and shoes did enough talking, so I kept the jewelry minimal with diamond, flower shaped studs. To avoid looking too 'done', I just pulled my hair back into a mid pony tail and pulled out a few loose strands. I just had to do the red lips with the rest of the silver / grey outfit. The dress is from a boutique I visited in Charlotte, the shoes are Twenty One, and the coat is FAUX fur from Charlotte Russe!  Tip of the day: You do not have to spend money on new shoes! Last year I wanted a similar look, so I took a pair of grey snakeskin sandals that had a beaten up wood heel and I simply grabbed some strong glue and loose sequins from my local craft store. Next just put glue on the heel of the shoe and start sprinkling the sparkle! I did just the heels so it would not look cheap since it was a DIY job! Have fun and be safe xoxox
