Annnd, just like that, party season is upon us! I have my first party of the season as tonight as I am helping to host the ASPCA Young Friends’ Fall benefit. I ended up renting this pretty little navy number from Rent the Runway and love the dramatic fit and flare silhouette. At this point, my standard party outfit is down to a science. I’m usually only have about twenty minutes to change when I get home form work to get ready, so I can’t mess around too much. Blowout in the morning, home to touch up makeup + apply a red lip. I typically always wear something with a fit and flare silhouette (looks better in photos), take a cozy shawl with me, and rely on a box clutch, metallic heels, and statement bling of some sort for accessories. Boom.. done. Another fun thing to try out is a party skirt! I’m loving this navy midi length, or this vibrant fuchsia mini. Just add a silky cami (any of these?) and it’s just as fun as a party dress… if not a little more interesting.
PS – Everything in this collage (except the jewelry… BaubleBar, natch) is from Shopbop – figured it was only fitting since today’s the last day of their big sale (take 25% off nearly everything on the site with code FAMILY25.
PPS – Looking for something more affordable? I have lots of options for you. Dresses: after the sale this, this, and this are all well under $150. This dress is also amazing, if you happen to be in great shape which I am not right now. As for shoes, after the sale these, these, and these are under $100. And this rainbow jeweled clutch is so unique and only $65 after the sale discount.
