Party Time

It's no secret that this is serious party season. It seems like it should be so easy- the perfect little black dress and some fun jewelry and you're good to go. Except for the dreaded vague dress code at the bottom of the invitation. They say things like "dress festive" or "holiday attire." Or, even worse, they say "cocktail" but you know when you get there, most of the people there will be in suits straight from work. I hate being overdressed for a party. Contrary to those that say it's better to be overdressed than under, I believe you have to find the happy medium or you are going to be very, very uncomfortable. In light of this, I like to put together party outfits that I know will fit in on the dressy scale but will stand out on the style scale. Festive and holiday attire definitely call for some sparkle and high heels. If the party says cocktail, take in to account the day, time, and location (Friday at 7 pm at the restaurant 2 blocks from the office will not be true cocktail). A Saturday night cocktail party at someone's home or an event room at a hotel will be dressier.

Here's a look I love for a "festive" night out. It's a little Audrey, a little Coco, and a lot cool.
