The Right... Party Frock



Guys.  The holiday party circuit is almost over.  Insert tears of joy and tears of sadness.  I think I've said this already but I felt like this holiday season was the craziest one yet (mostly because I had more events in my personal life than in my work life, which is hard to beat sometimes!).  I enjoyed every bit of it and I still have a couple of brunches/secret santa exchanges/white elephant parties to attend.  I'm headed home for the holidays tomorrow for the week (with a slight detour to SF for the weekend - #happydance) and I'll be posting next week but might be taking the next week off.  Sometimes a girl's just gotta re-group. 
Today's party frock is brough to you by LuLu's who never disappoints in the party dress department.  I love how festive it is without being so literal, and the back of this dress drapes so nicely.

The Right... Postcards from Italy Pt. 2

Vinci was the cutest little town
I promise I'm working on a full Euro trip recap (including the places I ate!) but time has not been on my side lately so for now my postcards will have to do!
Obviously.  The leaning tower - I did a couple super touristy photos, coming to instagram soon!

Day two in Florence was actually a group day trip through Tuscany - we hit up Pisa, Vinci, Siena and San Gimignano.  It was a long day but really exciting to be able to see so much of the area - and since it was dark when we go to San Gimignano I am definitely putting it back on my list of places to visit again!

The Duomo in Siena
I'm telling you, Europe sure does know how to dress up for the holidays!

East vs. West: Holiday Hostess


EastvsWest Holiday Hostess

I definitely love entertaining, especially during the holidays, but I have to admit that I haven't done much of it since moving to NYC.  The space makes it challenging and the hectic schedule also makes it challenging so today I had to pretend a little.  Luckily I feel like a "holiday hostess" outfit can also double as a "holiday guest" outfit so you're also seeing the outfit I wore at Jackie's holiday party.
Oh and before I forget, let's take a moment to recognize this leather jacket and these pumps.  It's really awesome getting to work with amazing brands on this blog and getting to add quality items to my closet.  I think it's safe to say I have two new obsessions!
Check out the rest of the East vs. West girl's hostess outfits!

Full disclosure: I'm not wearing tights and I was regretting it for sure - it was frigid when we shot these!

The Right... Gold Party Skirt


You definitely saw this skirt during the fall East vs. West collab and now it's back.  When I first tried it on I wondered when I would wear it and it's definitely been a go to for parties this fall/holiday season!  In fact I'm wearing a winterized version to a party tonight (I just added tights and I'm ready to go!).  I'm slowly losing track of how many holiday parties and festivities I've been partaking in - we're on the home stretch though.  And I leave for a weekend in SF and then a week at home next Friday.  I cannot.wait.

East vs. West: Holiday Shopping

EastvsWest Holiday Shopping
Living After Midnite  //  Tiffany Style Blog  //  Envision Pretty  //  Pursuit of Shoes  //  Oomph.

I'm super excited about today's post because as much as I love getting all dressed up for the holidays, a casual outfit here and there is nice.  And I feel like we can't forget about holiday shopping because that's definitely one of the most important things to do this month.  I've found that running around in easy layers like a scarf, sweater dress, tights and boots makes it a) comfortable for shopping and b) easy to go from outside to inside (although sometimes I still struggle with the extreme temperature changes when walking indoors or outdoors).  What's your go-to holiday shopping look?  Be sure to check out how everyone else styled their looks!

Can we pause for a second and talk about these boots?  They're by Duo and they're super awesome because you pick your size AND your calf size.  Talk about a win-win for everyone (again, I've got some huge hams back there so I'm always on the hunt for stylish solutions to the problem!).
