How We Holiday Party in 2015

Lovers + Friends Primrose Dress – $170

No matter how badly you want things to go a certain way, no amount of effort or time can change what’s supposed to actually happen. You would think that I would’ve learned this valuable lesson by now. For the last two years, I’ve worn black dresses – both very similar to each other. So in my third holiday party with my company, I vowed to be a little bit different. This year was going to be the year that I wore a white dress! So we started the search and the dream dress that I had wanted ran out the day after I had found it online. The dress that I ended up buying was beautiful and a steal as it was 50% off, but it didn’t feel like it was the one – I just wasn’t sure so I had to go to the mall and do my due dilligence – try on all the holiday party dresses to be sure that I was happy with the one I had purchased. Sure enough, I found one and it wasn’t white, but it was the one. You know how sometimes people talk about when they’ve found the one and they just know and they have no other reason that they give, but that one reason? That’s how I felt about this dress today and I can’t say the same for the others.

Now that I’ve finally got THE dress, we can write this post without much worry. I’ll be sure to share the one I actually wear next month in a later post, but since I’ve done some pre-research, the selection I’ve provided below is real good. I’ve scoured everything.

What to Wear: Summer Weddings 2015

Self-Portrait Azalea Dress – $380

Well wedding season is already underway, but it’s never too late because if you’re like any girl I know¬†then you’re always panicking last minute about what to wear. Or if you’re like me, you’ve planned out what you’re going to wear to a wedding months in advance, but feel you need another option at the last minute so you start the hunt again one weekend before the event. Whatever the case, it’s always good to have a variety in your closet for those emergencies.

I received my save the date from my favorite LA bf yesterday for her wedding next year and… that is exactly what is triggering this post! :) Should I start looking for a dress 9 months in advance for this wedding? Y/N?

Also, this is a good time to remind you all of a few things. Weddings are about the couple’s day. Do not wear white. Do not wear cream. Do not wear off white. If your dress is printed or patterned with a white base, don’t even wear that. There are so many dress options in this world and there’s no reason for you to be wearing anything resembling white on this day. A wedding is also not a time for you to take any fashion risks. Don’t wear anything that could pose as a wardrobe malfunction in any way shape or form.

Instead opt for soft prints and patterns and pastels. Gravitate towards romantic fabrics like ruffles, lace, and scalloped edges. Ladies – you know how to do this! Don’t be the one that messes it up because trust – wedding guests notice and they will talk about you.

Phoebe Dress – $115

Whenever I learn that I’ve got a wedding to attend, the hunt to find the perfect dress begins immediately. In general, finding a dress for a wedding can already be difficult, but something that I want to try for future weddings is wearing a dress that fits with the overall theme of the wedding or the couple! This summer, I’m attending a reception for my co-worker and she is the ultimate “cool girl.” She has an incredible sense of style and is also just a very easy going person. I once hung out with her and her fiance at a gastropub in Campbell drinking and eating for hours. So when I attend her reception this summer, I want to make sure that what I wear is fitting. Luckily for me, Revolve has handpicked a number of dresses for the upcoming wedding season and here are a few that I’m considering for my dear friend’s big day!

How to Ring in 2015 Right

Yumi Kim Beaded Elsa Dress – $300

TBH, we could’ve started this post a lot sooner, but lately I’ve been less than a planner than I’ve ever been in my life. You would think that I would have already planned out what I was going to do for New Years Eve already because normally that would’ve been decided weeks ago, but in fact, it’s still up in the air. It’s actually between seeing a DJ set in SF by Mayer Hawthorne or … you know…going to Vegas. So there’s that. Whatever the case – wherever I end up – having an outfit to wear on New Year’s Eve is something that I don’t skimp on. It’s actually one of my favorite holidays to dress up for (even though I don’t care about New Year’s Eve) because it’s the one time where you can look very sparkly and girly and what girl doesn’t love doing that for a night? So sorry for the late notice on this. If you see something you like just bite the bullet and purchase immediately so that it makes it in time for your big event!

Warning: We’ve got feels for the little black dress ahead!

How To Wear The 2013 Color Of The Year

I’ve always had a little bit of a crush for jewel tones and pastels. There’s definitely a little bit of an innocence thing going on with the pastels, but I love the regal-ness of jewel tones and how when I see a jewel tone on a piece, I instantly associate it with a strong willed and dynamic personality. I don’t know how these things come up; they just do. Emerald is the 2013 Pantone color of the year so to help y’all out with following the trend, here are a few of my favorite emerald colored pieces to get you started off.
