Wonderful Tonight: 8 Looks to Rock Your Holiday Parties

Can you believe that 2014 is almost over?  Last year at this point, like many people, I was yearning for the end of 2013. I do not know anyone who had a good year in 2013, and we were all looking forward to 2014 with hope and a sense of “Whew! I survived!” In contrast, 2014 has been a year of new loves, new books, new jobs, new family members, and a multitude of other reasons to celbrate for almost everyone I know.

What were your goals this year? Did you keep any of your resolutions? I am proud to say that I did. I ran my first 5K, spent as much time outside with my kids as I did inside, and actually put money into my savings account- which is a LOT harder than it seems when you work around fabulous clothing and shoes all the time!

The end of the year is a time of introspection and celebration with friends and family. We spend time with family, coworkers and friends, old and new, reflecting on our accomplishments and setting the bar for  next year’s achievements. As we celebrate, we want our outside to show just how we feel on the inside- powerful, strong, prepared and fabulous.  

With that in mind, this week I am excited to bring you looks to make you feel "wonderful tonight", ready to rock your curves while celebrating you and all that you have accomplished this year. All these fabulous party looks need is one or two glam accessories, a cute bag, and of course, GREAT SHOES (trust me; I know an awesome place to find them!) to complete the look and have you ready to celebrate.

Fresh Picks: Holiday Party Dresses

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to party! In this season of what seems to be non-stop celebrations, a great party dress is definitely essential. Whether you opt for demure and ladylike or sparkly and vibrant, the right dress should definitely make an entrance.

Stylist’s Tip: Sequins, lace, pleats and mesh are all gorgeous details we love on party dresses. The problem is they tend to be very delicate, so great care must be taken in freshening them up. We love using the Rowenta Precision Valet Commercial Garment Steamer for de-wrinkling and even freshening up delicate dresses. It’s definitely a handy tool to have around! (A great bonus: You can use this handy tool all over the house, too—from your upholstery to drapes.)
