Boston Holiday Style


I saw it as I flipped through the mail Friday evening - the first holiday party invitation of the year. The advent of party season can send one into a frenzy (what to wear?!?!). But! Keep calm and read on - I've teamed up with my favorite local bloggers, Jeffrey Lyle Salon and Sarra Studios to provide a little holiday party inspiration.

The little black dress is a holiday classic for a reason, and my favorite this winter is from Lily & Migs. It's got a flirty skirt that you won't see on other dresses, and long sleeves, so you won't have to pile on a bulky cardigan! I'm also in love with these feathered heels from Moxie - they're a unique color and have just the right amount of whimsy. As you can tell from the photos, I am very into the retro / glam aesthetic this winter, and this long, art deco necklace (also from Moxie) really fits with that vibe. So does my 'faux-bob' and vamp-y make-up - I love soft curls and a red lip for the holidays!

If you're not into a retro look, we've got other styles, too! Check out my friends and their Boston holiday style! 

Lani (Mon Petite Chou Chou) - romantic, feminine
Renata (Scorpion Disco) - structural
Amanda (Spreedia) - tailored
Sean (@BostonMo) - preppy with a quirky twist
See even more at Sarah Winchester Studios!

    2. You are SO RIGHT. I went to Sarra a few weeks (months?) ago and Sadie did my eyebrows. It WAS life-altering (melo-drama alert!). I had no idea how different / better my face could look with perfectly groomed brows. And Lauren is wonderful. She gave me this amazing vampy look, but it felt like I wasn't wearing any makeup at all!

    1. Brooke, Alex, Lani - Aren't the shoes the most? I think they are THE accessory to pick up for the holidays. I see them with an LBD, obs. But also with black pants and a turtleneck, jeans and a cool jacket, with anything oxblood (which is so hot right now)...the possibilities are endless!

    1. This dress, this dress! I cannot say enough about this dress. I love the long sleeves, I love the kicky skirt (I love that I just got to use the word 'kicky'). Like the shoes, I think it would work in a variety of situations - holiday parties, hot date, wedding, really, any time you need to kick it up just a notch.
