The Holidays come around and so do all the parties and family gatherings. You've spent all the money on gifts for other people, but you can't forget about the most important...yourself! Make a statement without overdoing the sparkles with a multi chain necklace that can spice up your holiday look. And for the gift that keeps on giving, a leather mini that can be used year after year and as multiple outfits.
The Whole Package Navy Strapless Dress, $92 Lulu's
I'm going for a winter wonderland look this holiday season and whether the party is fancy or dance-y, I just want to sparkle! This flirty little dress from Lulu's really is the whole package: it's got glitter, it's got sequins, it's got a pretty bow to make you feel like a present! To complete the ensemble, I paired it with navy, glitter heels and a silver, iridescent eye shadow. Party guests are gonna need their ski goggles on when I walk in!
