Holiday Party Looks for Girls

Dec 06, 2011

The holiday season is here and that means lots of festive semi-formal parties - it’s the perfect opportunity to dress to impress. So put away your jeans and t-shirts and pick out some seasonal styles that will make you look like a Christmas queen!

Jingle Jewelry

Sparkling silver jewelry is a must-have for any holiday party outfit because it’ll instantly make you look and feel like a Christmas princess. Try using long dangling earrings, bangles on your wrist or best of all a sweet but simple chain necklace. Silver's cool tones make it perfect for winter festivities.

Glamorous Glow

This season it’s all about giving your face that winter-kissed glow. Try dusting a little blush or pink-hued bronzer across your cheeks to get that just-in-from-the-cold look to last all party long. Don’t hesitate to take the winter look to the next level by adding a berry lipstick/gloss or light shimmering eye shadow.

The Perfect Party Dress

When it comes to winter wear don’t be afraid to go dark. Forest greens, ruby reds, midnight blue and pitch black are perfect for any dress in December. Try a feminine fabric with a little weight. Our fave pick is a sweet short velvet dress, the fabric speaks for itself so don’t worry too much about pattern. Short lace dresses are also a holiday hit, they look pretty whether it’s sunny or snowing.

Tinsel Toes: Leopard or Lamé!

If you’re at a party who knows how long you might be standing, so this year let’s ditch the heels and trade them in for a fun pair of flats or beautiful brogues. Our fave this season is leopard print, but if you want something a little different, try a pair of shimmering or lamé lace-ups!

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)

Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D
