holiday party 2

You guys, I lied! Before, when I posted an all white holiday look, I spoke too soon (or actually blogged too soon). This is what that holiday party outfit was really supposed to be ;)

To be perfectly honest, I forgot about that top because it was too big. but then my boobs got bigger, just kidding.

I remembered that a halter with an elastic in the back is very easy to tailor. So now I have a holiday party outfit that is winter white, and also festive.

I like that this top needs no jewelry, it's like wearing a top and statement necklace together. It's Alice + Olivia from years ago, so I could only find this one in black. But if you like a tube top, this one is perfect.

This beaded white top is perfect for a holiday party with white pants. The beading doesn't make it look too matchy.

This Phillip Lim top is also perfect with white pants, the beading is very minimal and delicate. If you like a more bejeweled look, check out this Nanette Lepore top.

The pants are my trusty holiday party goto's: Adam Lippes crepe tuxedo pants (similar here). Only for this look, I lengthened the hem (that's why it's so dirty!) I know, I need to clean them.

They are still hemmed, mind you, but I like them longer. I think the new length maintains the desired look of the pants.

If you like the shorter look, a great choice for white pants as they don't get dirty as fast, check out these Eileen Fisher pants. holiday party 657

Because these are true tuxedo pants, they have a satin trim along the side, having a leg lengthening effect, like these Edun pants.

Wide leg trousers, like these, always lose some of the structure when hemmed. These Adam pants, however, will look great at any length because of their slim silhouette.

I also love the satin waistband on tuxedo pants, and a tucked in top is a great way to show that off!

They can barely be seen, but I wore my Manolo Chaos with this look. Check out these Schutz minimalist sandals for a higher heel and better price. These Nordstrom sandals are a perfect dupe for the Manolos, and the price is amazing!

 

I'm so glad I went shopping in my closet and found this top. And look how happy I am, first smile in the blog!

Hope you all have a great week, and happy holidays!
