Put on a Party Dress…

“For hundreds of years, women have used the formal dress, what we now call the party dress, as a form of expression.  The right dress could launch a lady into high society and flaunt her beauty.”- History of The Party Dress

Holiday parties, galas and the sparkle and shine of New Years Eve are upon us! 

Often times while wrapped up in checking off your holiday shopping lists, one item goes undone leading to the dreaded “I have nothing to wear moment!”

This year we’ve got you covered with some of this season’s party dresses for every style & budget:wrapmeup Put on a Party Dress...

This winter I’m planning the ultimate ski weekend with a group of friends! We plan to hit the slopes all day and retire to our luxe cabin for a steak and lobster dinner followed by vino next to the fireplace!

I don’t know which I’m more excited for, the actual trip or the chic snow gear!

Here are some of my fav snow bunny must-haves, for a swanky getaway to the slopes:

The Giving Keys

the giving keys1 The Giving Keys

If you are a firm believer in karma as I am, then you also probably appreciate the idea of “paying it forward”.

Enter: The Giving Keys

The Giving Keys employs the homeless to engrave meaningful words like “strength, hope, love” etc. into their one of a kind necklaces in an effort to keep them off the streets.

How it works: Buy a key, wear it around some and eventually you must pass it on or “pay it forward” to a person you feel could truly benefit from the message on the key. Then go to The Giving Key and share your story!

Similarly if you receive a key from someone you must eventually pass it on when you feel the time is right. Don’t forget to share your story!

I love this chain of positivity and encouragement!

Check out some of the inspiring thus far.

How maj is Zara’s evening collection? Swoon.

Hands down the biggest concern for many of my clients is: how to translate their style from a 20 something post-grad to a young professional without looking too mature?

Zara’s evening collection is the PERFECT demonstration of just how to work your youthful styles into an age-appropriate get up!

Now, drop theLong Island, pick up a glass of champagne and toast to the posh new you!

 What do you think of Zara’s evening collection?  How to you keep your style age appropriate?
