Festive, My Way

Fishnet tights street style

Holiday parties call for sparkles, metallics, sexy details, delicate slip dresses and of course a dazzling LBD. I don't consider myself a shy person, therefore, I have no problem sharing a look that pretty much has all those attributes. #DRESSFUN
In order to wear a party outfit with a lot of details without looking like a human Christmas tree, my best bet was wearing a monochromatic look. As we all know, black is the most flattering, alluring and timeless color, therefore I didn't hesitate wearing it from head to toe.
Dressing in all black might seem easy, but if you want to make your outfit more interesting, I would recommend layering and mixing textures.

How about jewelry? In my opinion, a monochromatic ensemble can look splendid either with dainty or bold jewelry.

Later in the night, I decided to add an edgy touch to my ensemble by wearing a bomber leather jacket. 
With a total black look, you really can get away with fun layering. By the way, this midi dress used to be a pretty maxi dress, but I didn't wear it as often as I anticipated. Last week I decided to make it shorter, hoping to wear it more often.

We are a few days away from the Christmas holidays, therefore, I will be off from blogging for a little while. I'll probably be back posting before New Year's, but I'll remain active on my Instagram account.
By the way, this year, instead of spending Christmas with my family in New Orleans, we will be spending it with my boyfriend's family in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Who knows? This time I might have the opportunity to have a real white Christmas.
I hope you have wonderful holidays and have the chance to spend quality time with your loved ones.
