east vs west style. holiday party.

now that thanksgiving has passed, it's starting to feel like christmas. driving around the neighborhood this weekend, the night air was crisp and cool, and many of the houses were starting to put up their christmas lights and decorations. and you know what that means...holiday parties!

the ladies and i are back with a holiday edition of east vs west style, and we're kicking it off with what to wear to your holiday parties. black doesn't have to be boring. play around with layers, textures, and prints to create a look that will stand out in the crowd.

figuring out what to wear to a holiday party can be stressful. you're already worried about your grab bag gift, your dish or wine selection, and you might be on a budget with all the christmas gifts you have yet to buy. your work wardrobe can provide a great base for an outfit.

for me, it's this leopard print pencil skirt and tank top that i always wear to the office topped off with this beautiful faux leather drape cardigan from Karen Kane. it's slightly textured and has a pretty sheen to it that makes it feel festive. i'm also loving the ruched sleeves that show off your jewelry [and flash tats] without having to roll up your sleeves.

when the holidays are over, this cardigan will fit right into my work wardrobe...and that's what i call a great investment.
