10th Commandment: December 4

Dec 4, 2012

 

Juicy Couture Ponte Minidress with Lace Back ($115)

This week, I’m going to focus on party attire for all of those holiday get togethers.  From family time to festive nights on the town, the Two Ways posts will feature how to dress for yuletide events.

This black minidress is business in the front–with long sleeves and a demure neckline–and a party in the back–with a lace inset.  If you like the lace back but would prefer something other than black, try this raspberry dress or this flirty white dress.  Or if you prefer the reverse, a lace dress that’s backless, try this rockin’ frock from Alice + Olivia.

Check back at 1:00PM for Two Ways to wear this dress.

    Did they style this lovely dress with PENNY LOAFERS?!? I am sure your two ways will be much, much classier.

    Oh, I'm excited for the holiday party attire posts. Thanks, Belle, for doing this. I am wondering if anyone has ever tried Wolford tights? They are really pricey (for tights, especially) but they are supposed to be amazing and not snag, etc. Was wondering if anyone has any IRL experience with them? Thanks

    I love love wolford tights. I have two pair, and they are very comfortable and hold up well. that being said, my favourite pair DID snag last year (after about four months of once a week use) when I caught them on a nail hanging out of a desk. even then, there is a hole, but no run. So I turned them around and wear them backward! 🙂 And really, who can fault a pair of tights for succumbing to a nail?!
    also, I throw mine in a lingerie bag and wash them once every 2-3 wears. they have held up beautifully with no pilling.

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.
