The Perfect Party Dress

Outfit Details: LuLu*s Ivory and Black Shift Dress, Fringe-tastic Earrings, and Studded Black Purse (c/o), Francesca's Belt (similar), Jeffrey Campbell Shoes (similar), Madewell Pave Spike Necklace

This week on the blog it's all about dressing up for your holiday parties. Earlier in the week I talked about the ideal party pants, and today I am sharing one of my favorite party dresses in collaboration with LuLu*s. As you might already know, I am a big fan of dressing festive and hunting for the perfect dress. Luckily, LuLu*s makes holiday dress shopping easy and budget friendly; you can shop for Christmas, New Year's Eve, cocktail parties, a fun girl's night out, and even bridesmaids dresses. Whatever the occasion, it's all there!

When shopping for holiday outfits, opt for patterns and bold details. You don't have to stick to christmas-y colors like green and red. Instead, try finding a dress that you can get some mileage out of. This black and white shift dress featured above is a flattering style for all body types, plus the colors are neutral and it can be re-styled for any season.

Dressing slim tips: Forget about gym classes and eating healthy. This time of year is filled with too many treats and goodies to fret about the scale. If you are looking to instantly slim your appearance try reaching for fabric that will "keep the eye moving"- think metallic fibers, tweed, a bold print...etc. You can also distract the eye with a sparkly necklace or statement earrings. I personally love how chic these long fringe earrings look with a side swept pony. They also scream holiday glam!

I hope these tips make you feel incredible for your special occasions. Don't forget to stop by lulus.com and check out their #partyPerfect dress shop.
