HOLIDAY DRESSING ON A BUDGET - PART ONE

If you are determined to stay ahead of the holiday game this year, then this post is exactly up your alley. Holidays can be an expensive time of the year. From buying gifts for everyone in the family, to hosting dinners and every little thing in between, it can get a whole lot financially troublesome. But you got to be the hostess with the hostess: you got to put your best foot forward. After all that hard work you deserve to be treated to a new dress or a new something to add to your holiday wardrobe. 

This is the time when you can get away with luxe fabrics like silk, sequins, velvet and satin to name a few. It could either be the cold weather or just the festive vibe in the air, that I personally get lured to sequin. There is this inherent excitement that I get every time I come across anything  sequence-y. Be it a dress, a skirt, or even shoes,  come November-December I get all jittery every time I spot sequin. While sequin might be eye-appealing, it is not the most wearable option. Unless you are the adventurous kinds who doesn't mind looking like a disco-ball during the day, you don't want to attract those undesirable public glares. A little sequin is still acceptable, but this year I am more into velvet

Velvet is luxurious yet affordable, feminine and sexy. I am having a major moment with velvet and I have already stocked up a few pieces like this, this and this. Velvet is so wearable, for instance the dress I am wearing is subtle, uber-feminine, comes in a few other colors and is under $150  HERE. I can wear it now and in holidays and beyond. I would totally wear this as pictured with the blue jacket and beret for a daytime office holiday party and with a sequin jacket or a fur wrap, some pearl jewelry and a statement clutch for a night get together. This dress could be the "IT" dress that goes from desk to dinner in a flash. 

How would you wear it???
