Holiday Party Style Challenge: Blogger Collab

Holiday Party Style Collage 2For today’s post, I am super excited to be collaborating with one of my favorite blogger friends, Akinyi from F.I.T.S. on Me, for a special holiday edition style challenge!  Akinyi has such an amazing and unique style perspective!  And with so many fabulous events over the holidays (family get togethers, dinners with friends, parties, etc.), we both thought it would be fun to show our individual takes on dressing for the holiday season!

I absolutely love Akinyi’s look!  It’s ultra chic and perfect for a holiday party!  I especially love her fur jacket!  Such a fun and festive print and the colors are perfect for the holidays!  Be sure to check out her full post here!

Tulle Skirt - Holiday Party LooksFor my look, I decided to rock tulle and sequins baby!  Yep!  Nothing says fun more than a tulle skirt!  It just radiates happiness! And we all know that sequins is an absolute must have for any holiday event!  So, put the two of them together and you have the perfect combo for a holiday party!

OOTD: Holiday Party Edition

I had a chance this past weekend to attend my first official Holiday Party of the season (ok, this may be my only holiday party of the season unless some serious invites show up soon!).  Anyway, I attended the Gray’s Annual Holiday Party at the Harvey B. Gantt Center this past Saturday.

This was a “party with a purpose” since the party was actually a fundraiser for the Gantt Center itself.  (For those unfamiliar, the Gantt Center is an African American Arts & Cultural Center located in Uptown Charlotte in the Levine Arts District).  It is an amazing venue.  The “America I Am Exhibit” is currently on display there and a ticket to the party offered a free tour of the exhibit, in addition to complimentary drinks all evening, a cajun style buffet and a jazz band and DJ.

I decided to wear one of my fave J. Crew Cocktail dresses for this event.  I am a huge J. Crew fan but I have a special love for their party and cocktail dresses.  Their collections always have a variety of dresses to choose from for every personality type – from minimalist to whimsical – and the colors are always amazing.  This dress I especially love because of the stunning metallic hue.  It just screams holidays to me!

Anyway, the night was sheer fun — great music, an electric crowd and  good food!  I had the best time out in a long time and other than some really angry feet at the end of the night — all was good!!  How have your holiday parties been so far?  What’s your holiday party style?  IMG_0797
