Glam Holidays And Champagne Shame Spirals

Glam holiday: Tay-Tay Swift covers FASHION.

On a recent champagne shame spiral, my friend J commented on my attire by saying, “Where do you think you’re going? You’re dressed for the Bahamas!” Sure, sometimes I exhibit ba-na-nas behaviour but for good reason.  I have outfits that need to be taken out.  When I see ‘HOLIDAY’ emblazoned across every magazine on the newstand, all I wanna do is drape myself in luxe fabrics, sequins, crystals, wear mini things with 60 denier tights and teeter on stilettos accompanied by a companion (preferably male) who will help me maneuver the patches of snow on the sidewalk.  Phew! (Please note:  Although grammatically questionnable, my run-on sentence was intentional for dramatic effect.) 

With frigid temperatures, it is habit to cover up for warmth.  But defiance in the face of winter is an admirable show of courage, especially when combined with fashion risk taking. Take that subzero wind chill!  Here are some delectable holiday looks which will keep your friends wanting morex3.

Embellished Tank – I would rather wear a goose down jacket and coat check it, than cover up my pretty tank top with a festive sweater.  But that’s just me.  Jewel tone sleeveless tops in georgette silks, smooth satins, paired with netting and lace are often Bedazzled with stunning statement details around the neck.  I am drooling already. 

Alice + Olivia NEVER disappoint. Loving the texture of this flowy chiffon embellished top

 Mini, Mini, Mini – In my books, a holiday party calls for mini.  Like mini quiches, cupcakes, frites, tiny candy canes etc, etc.  I will confess that I am a big advocate of MINI, as evidenced in my post Mini is the New Supersize.  With holiday you are allowed to go more opulent.  In fact, it’s encouraged.  Petite skirts or shorts with black tights and statement shoes.  You can’t go wrong. soft: Gryphon Tiger Print Velvet Mini

Give them something to talk about with these Alice + Olivia cuffed shorts. Pair with lace or printed tights if you've got twigs for legs.

What's worse than a hangover? A champagne hangover. Moet in moderation kids!

Don’t care much for Taylor Swift, too sugar coated for my liking…

I couldn’t agree more – never need a reason to get luxed up. Loved the run on sentence btw :-)

Funny post
