Let's face it. Holiday parties can go one of two ways. 

Best case scenario: you wind up getting your buzz on, maybe make some new friends, slay it on the dance floor and go home in a state of euphoric bliss feeling a little bit better about the world. Worst case: you get totally inebriated to combat your boredom, fight with your boss or family member about who they voted for, spill wine on yourself while dancing and wake up in a state of embarrassment unsure of what happened the night before. There really is no in-between.

So for better or worse, you might as well go into the gauntlet well-prepared. Which is to say: well-dressed. Wouldn't you rather everyone remember your entrance instead of your exit? So to continue my collab with Shopbop, I put together a few tips for holiday party dressing for you below, followed by a few favorite party frocks to shop yourself. Don't say I never had your back!


The Marcy Stop

1. Go Bold or Go Home: A bright dress in an unexpected hue, like the yellow number above, is a great way to stand out from the usual crowd of LBD's & metallic numbers.

2. Add Some Edge: Feeling a little too glitzy and girly in your glitzy dress? A leather & fur motorcycle jacket looks glam while adding a modern touch to even the fanciest maxi.

3. Bag it Up: Time to replace your usual minaudière with a bigger, bolder accessory that's as practical as it is pretty. The sleek convertible clutch/ tote/ crossbody above is perfect for going from office to holiday party while still looking super chic.

4. Heed your Heels: The only way you can dance the night away is a comfy pair of heels. My go-to styles? Platforms, wedges, booties & block heels. Just be sure to wear them in before your big night out!

  5. Many bald patients, such as human hair extension early baldness, scalding after scalding, yellow ringworm caused by scarring alopecia, extensive alopecia areata or bald, etc., often seriously affect the beauty, especially female patients will cause great psychological trauma. The easiest way is to use a lush hair extensions wig to cover up the defects, get spiritual comfort and psychological satisfaction.There are two kinds of lush hair extensions wigs, one is really made, the other is woven into the chemical fiber. There are three ways to hair extensions uk make a wig, that is, machine weaving, semi-hand weaving, and completely hand weaving.
