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!

My best friend is always wanting me to spend the night at her house, but because she keeps irritating me about it, i can't get my school work done and now i'm falling behind. How do I tell her how I feel without hurting her feelings?

They're great friends and I'm just... stupid. I'm sorry dear but things do get better and its not your fault. Everyone messes up, its just a part a life. If you need to talk and explain to me with more info you can, I'm here. :)    ^^This. You're not stupid either. Everybody makes mistakes and messes things up.
