Holiday Checklist: What to Wear to Your Social Soiree

The holidays are in full swing, which means you’ll have plenty of guests to warmly welcome, drinks to toast and old friends to catch up with!  Get ready to check one more thing off of your holiday checklist with our quick guide of what to wear to your next holiday function. Find your favorite dress (and accessories) to keep you celebrating in style!

Gianni Bini Dress, Kate Spade watch, Michael kors clutch, Gianni Bini pumps, Gianni Bini heels, Gianni bini shoes

For our first holiday-ready wardrobe, we wanted to create a look that is the perfect recipe of warmth with a dash of golden glamour. The Janelle studded dress from Gianni Bini steals our hearts in  studded shine, adding a glimmering touch to this long-sleeved dress. And for all of you party planners, we know looking sophisticated reflects your punctual personality. That’s why a crisp collared shirt and this Kate Spade bracelet watch will keep you sharp in “I-got-this” confidence. Keep your holiday cheer (no matter what mishaps come your way) with the Gianni Bini Charlene sequined pumps and shimmery Fossil zip clutch.

Belle Badgley Mischka dress, Kate Landry clutch, Nina Bonique pumps, Betsey Johnson earrings

Now that you’ve proven you’re domestic diva who can whip up some good convo and hot cocoa, it’s time to celebrate with your friends! A tango of fuchsia, red and other flirty shades come together  in this sequin sheath dress from Belle Badgley Mischka. Step up the shine with the Nina Bonique pumps in rhinestone buckle embellishment. If you plan on rockin’ around the Christmas tree (aka dancing your heart out) we recommend some studs that won’t throw off your moves, like the Betsey Johnson stud earrings in dazzling fuchsia shine.  A girl on the go needs a little eye-candy that can hold on to her nightlife essentials. Grab the Kate Landry stone and sequin clutch for your clutch contender.

Gianni Bini Dress, Vince Camuto earrings, Kate Landry clutch, Gianni Bini shoes, Gianni Bini heels, Gianni Bini pumps, Black Tie

Prepare to steal the spotlight at your next gown gala. Hollywood glamour meets modern allure with this Alex Evenings off-the-shoulder gown.  This statement-red dress is softened by glistening goldtone with the Vince Camuto chandelier earrings— (keeping your collarbone bare to accentuate this embellished bust.)  Remember to give your feet the royal fête treatment with the Gianni Bini Wendy dress sandals for head-to-toe holiday glow. Kate Landry proves to be a girl’s best friend once again with this metal mesh rhinestone box. A ring top clasp closure adds rough-around-the-edges detail to this scarlet starlet silhouette.

Fierce and feline-feminine, the GB Animal-Print dress is a natural selection for your bold personality.  The crisscross cutout back mark your trend-spotted style (pun intended) in this season’s wildly popular print.

Shoe Shop:  Brown booties from GB show your down-to-earth attitude with an elevated edge. 

Spritz: A free spirit like you should have a scent to awaken your senses and your feminine prowess. The Juicy Couture Viva Noir perfume offers the best of both worlds with an enticing fragrance that will lure everyone to your charisma.

Finishing Touch: Go for the bold in goldtone metal and clear rhinestone with the Vince Camuto frontal necklace.

Being the shy-yet-sophisticated gal means chances are parties aren’t really your thing, and that’s okay!  Your holiday dress should be sweet and flirtatious without too much frill.  That’s why the GB Polka-Dot dress is the perfect way to show off your artistic side in a playful fit-and-flare silhouette.

Shoe Shop: Break away from your cute flats collection and step into these buckled-up beauties. We promise you won’t regret it.

Spritz: Daisy by Marc Jacobs is your ideal aroma to channel delicate allure with a mysterious medley. Like this perfume, there’s more to you than meets the eye.

Finishing Touch: Fuchsia studs by Betsey Johnson add a pop of color to this classic black and white combo, while showing off your eye for detail.

Keen observation (and retail therapy) have shaped you into a style savvy  fashionista who’s always ahead of the trend curve. Be the highlight of your party in this GB Chevron Sequin dress in must-have gold-and-black shimmer.  We love the balance of these long sleeves against this edgy-short hem.

Reminiscent of a Grecian goddess, the GB Hi-Low Dress  combines classical draping with contemporary detail.  Whether you’re attending a holiday party with a date, or hoping to catch a certain someone’s attention, this dress speaks to your romantic sensibilities in 21st century glamour (unless Jane Austen regency gowns are more of your thing).

 Shoe Shop: Skip the gladiator sandals for some pointed-toe perfection with the Gianni Bini Tamara pumps.

Spritz: It’s love at first scent with the Miss Dior fragrance. Dreamy blends of floral and delectable fruit create an amorous aroma.

I Promise I’ve Been Good: The Ultimate UGG Australia Wish List

The holidays are a fun time of year to dote on the people we love and appreciate the most. However, when I’m asked, “What do you want this season?” I usually return the question with a quizzical look. To combat those awkward instances, I have been thinking, “What do I want?” The answer actually came fairly easily: boots.


Everything about the fall and winter seasons begs for boots–skinny jeans, scarves, cool weather, layered looks–and if there is one must-have brand to own, it’s UGG Australia. Supremely comfortable, these boots are like sweaters for your feet and are available in a wide array of classic and contemporary styles.

UGG Australia offers the perfect balance of quality (cozy genuine sheepskin, suede, EVA outsoles with patent protected tread design) and fun details (bows, glitter, zippers, polka-dots–they have it all).

Here are a few that we love here at Dillard’s:

K_blog (1)

UGG Australia Classic Short Bailey Bow Boots: With feminine bows and a classic silhouette, these boots are ultra desirable. Warmth, comfort, and a little touch of girly frill easily make the Bailey Bow boots the topper for any holiday wish list.

UGG Australia Dakota 78 Slippers: Moccasins, polka dots, a bow, and superior cushiness—do we even need to go into why the Dakota 78 slippers are a definite must-have this season?  Whether it’s around the house or on a quick trip to the store, these slippers are made for on-the-go comfort.

UGG Australia Mini Bailey Bow 78 Boots: Everything there is to love about the Bailey Bow boots plus polka dots (which is definitely a trend this season) can be found in the Mini Bailey Bow 78 boots. Pair with leggings and an oversized sweater and take on the world.

UGG Australia Classic Short 78 Boots: The tried and true classic short boot gets a spunky makeover with polka-dotted details (we really love polka dots) that ensure that you’ll stand out where ever your ventures may take you.

UGG Australia Bailey Bling Boots: Who doesn’t love a bit of bling? Genuine Swarovski crystals adorn these comfy yet oh-so-fabulous boots. When in doubt, it’s hard to go wrong with a little bit of dazzle. 

UGG Australia Blaise Boots:  Adorned with edgy elements—zippers and buckles!—a touch of rebellion elevates your look while toes stay marvelously comfortable.

UGG Australia Blaise Moto Boots: A contemporary take on the moto boot, this cousin to the Blaise Boots ups the ante by adding glitter details to the zipper and heel. Really, what is there NOT to love?

The Rest: Play up the metallic shine of this dress with the sophisticated goldtone pave drop earrings from Vince Camuto. Go sky-high with these Dyvine T-strap platform pumps from Steve Madden that visually lengthen your legs. Smooth any figure flaws with Tight-End shaping tights from Spanx and comfortably shape and slim  your tummy, hips, thighs and rear.

Add some starlet glamour to your look with the powder pearl eye trio from Bobbi Brown. As the night goes on, add a little coverage with a coordinating Vince Camuto feather caplet with red carpet-worthy black faux feathers.

The Rest: A row of studs evoke edgy shimmer on these equestrian-inspired Billie boots from Arturo Chiang. Just as sequins and beads enchant on an ornate dress, these studs complete the casual look with style.

Your face will stay flawless all day with Double Wear Stay-in-Place makeup from Estee Lauder.

Add a pop of color with the high shine of Origins Liquid Lip Color and high-potency hues of the Limited Edition Fade Resistant Gloss Shine nail polish from Lancome Vernis in Love.
