You Should Be On A Christmas Card: The Holiday Party Look You Need for the Rest of the Year

Hey Mer-babes! Christmas is almost upon us and New Years is right around the corner.  I am sure between now and 2017 you have 1,000 events to attend, between BFF brunches and cookie swaps to Christmas dinners and NYE parties, and this one look will get you through them all.  I promise.

Shop the Post:

This look is honestly too simple, a slip dress, a puffer coat, a clutch, and chunky boots.  Thats it.  Then, you can add all the layers you desire.  I started with this amazing vintage D&G dress (shop similar here), honestly I hate wearing mini dresses; I always feel like a tube of toothpaste and majorly over exposed, but this beauty is too good to keep hidden in the closet.  The best part of the slip dress is the ability to wear it a thousand ways, for a family dinner sneak a turtleneck underneath and slip on a pair of black tights for a totally appropriate look.   Alternatively, for a night out pair your slip with bold jewels and a thigh high boot!

Its all about keeping warm this winter so I paired my slip dress with an olive green puffer coat (shop here), I always thought puffer coats were stupid and looked like marshmallows but I am a changed woman,  I can not get enough.  Gold accessories are always a "yes" in my book but work perfectly for the holiday season.  I paired this holiday slip dress with a gold chunky boot (shop here) and a gold clutch (shop here).  This Missco Girl gold clutch (shop here) is the perfect party piece, it is super inexpensive, $39, and the larger than the average clutch making room for all eight of the lipsticks you HAVE to have with you.
