Keep it simple and Whah lah-you are picture perfect for any holiday party. Here are a few examples below to get you inspired. I’ve attached links to items where available.  Here’s to “Topping it off “in style.

A simple white blouse with decorative details is always a great choice…

A & N Vanessa Emerald Satin Dress $360.00 on SALE $247.47

When it comes to dressing for the holidays,  most of us like to venture out and find a dress or jumpsuit with a little bit more sparkle for all our holiday parties and events.

When choosing the perfect party dress or jumpsuit it’s always a good idea  to keep the silhouette simple but venture into fabrications that are” holiday ready.” Fabrications include Velvet, Satin, Brocade and Sequins -that aren’t for everyday but during the holidays…BRING IT!- they are spot on!

With so many choices available,it’s best to shop early. (Items  seem to sell out fast and sizes can be scarce to find).I could source for days all the beautiful selections available during the Christmas season  but I’ve chosen to feature a bevy of basic styles that most everyone can wear no matter what your size or age.

Red V Neck Dress @ Floral Bridal $80.46

Red Backless Jumpsuit @ Lulu’s $52.00

 

Black Halo Jumpsuit @Shopbop $390.00

 

Embroidered Lace Dress @Lulu’s $69.00

 

Johanna Ortiz Velvet Dress (SOLD OUT) *Similar Style click on image.

Velvet Wrap in Cobalt Blue@ Lulus’s $74.00

Trixy Blazer Dress in Red Sequins @ Revolve $298.00

Holiday Quick List… The Tuxedo Jacket

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Fashion tips Uncategorized

The Tuxedo Jacket is a closet staple. It’s oh so chic, sleek and versatile. Trust me when I say that this is one wardrobe piece that you will wear for years to come.  You can dress it up or down and it can be  paired with a multitude of items depending on the occasion and your preference.

If you have a black tie event, than by all means go GLAM and wear the jacket with a slim fitting tuxedo pant. You can also pair your tuxedo jacket with a long or short skirt,  a pair of sleek leather pants or  even your basic jeans (preferably  in black) .

Tuxedo jackets are available at every price point and can be made to look even more expensive  by having it tailored to fit. Pay special attention  before you purchase to jacket details with special consideration on the lining of the jacket. A fully lined tuxedo jacket creates a more steam lined  silhouette and  isn’t that the whole point of wearing a tuxedo jacket -to look as sleek and chic as possible!

 

Dolce &; Gabbana Tuxedo Jacket @ Italist.com $1,821.00 Sale:$1375.75

Ralph Lauren Resort 2019 $1,990.00 Available at Ralph Lauren.com

Zara Tuxedo Jacket $89.90

DKNY Satin Trim Tuxedo Jacket Net-a-porter.com $245.00

So Very Velvet

Hellllo Fall.  I can’t believe it’s already October! Where oh where does the time go? As we prep for Halloween and before you put your last pumpkin on the porch you’ll notice( if you haven’t already) that  Christmas is UP and on full display at many department stores! If you’ve also noticed a bevy of holiday catalogs jamming your mailbox you might find yourself starting to ponder-what do I have to wear for all my holiday parties. Now just between you and I, we KNOW full well that we have a closet full of clothes and there is something in there BUT we always want a little something new.  Don’t we?! It’s just how we roll. If you want the 411 on what’s going to be the “it” fabric of the holiday season -here you go. One word. VELVET! Yep, velvet is a major trend for fall 2017 and it’s going to be strong, very very strong for holiday.  The good news for all of us is that velvet can be found everywhere made in every type of apparel item. It’s going to be a very velvet holiday season.

Category: Fashion

Rebecca Taylor Foil Lace Midi Skirt $550.00

 

Milly Midi Sequin Pencil Skirt $295.00

JOA Sequin Pencil Skirt $98.00

Can you believe it’s the last week of October??? I know-me neither. It seems like we were just basking in the lazy days of summer and just like that BOOM it’s Halloween. Before you can blink you will be toasting the end of another year. How does this happen? It all seems to go so quickly once we hit the end of October. 

BB Fringe by Haute Hippie $695.00

 

Mixed Metal Striped Mini $98.00

I have always subscribed to the notion that a Glamour Girl can NEVER be to  prepared especially when it comes to dressing for the holidays. Most od us have the usual wardrobe suspects-you know the ones I’m talking about-the tuxedo jacket with some feminine flair, the pencil skirt, the perfect party dress. Check, check and check. But what about adding something that has a little bit more POP, more sparkle  that can be paired with a blouse, or sweater or even a jacket… Enter the perfect sparkle skirt. It gives you oodles of options and you can find one at a multitude of price points at Piperline.    To click  on your pick: http://piperlime.gap.com

Sabine Sequin Skirt $119.00

Final “Notes” on Holiday Apparel!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Fashion tips Humor

Well here we are Glamour Girls – only 4 days until Christmas. This is such a joyful, exciting, crazy, stressful time of year. I hope the finish line is in site with all your holiday shopping, wrapping, cooking and decorating. It is always a relief to have everything done and focus on the most important question looming on every Glamour Girls mind……….

“What am I going to wear”????

(Insert event: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, The Caroling Party, The Christmas Cookie exchange… etc..etc..etc.) Now being the Glamour Girl that you are, I assume that you have a plethora of outfits to choose from for any number of occasions you must attend. However if perchance you have a fashionably challenged “friend” who takes the term” holiday apparel” a bit to literally, I wanted to submit this brief holiday “don’t” pictorial to aid her in avoiding a  holiday disaster far greater than cranberry stains on her bottom or spilt eggnog on her top. 

May your Fashions be Cheery and Right! Save “bright” for the tree!

Happy Holidays  

Keep all ornament ON the tree! Thank you!

Ornaments should only be on the Tree! Thank you!

Shoes should be Festive-BUT..these just say "I need Fashion Rehab"!

Shoes should make a statemnt! but these just say "I've had way to much eggnog and got dressed in the dark..these are really my slippers.."

Why would you ever choose to wear a sweater with numerous faces depicting Santa Clause..UNLESS Santa looked like George Clooney?
No man fictional or otherwise deserves “face time” on the front of your sweater unless of course it’s George as in Clooney and then only if he has proposed marriage and your wearing a tacky T-shirt to announce said nuptuals.
FInally-There is a Big difference between Holiday Sparkle and wearing so much shimmer you could bring in a plane!

No need to have every item of apparel "shine" unless you have a job bringing in planes or very large sleds with reindeer in the wee hours of the evening!
