Belle’s Closet: The Perfect Holiday Sweater

Nov 25, 2014

Since I’m celebrating the holidays out West this year, my party dresses will spend soiree season gathering dust in the closet.  It’s tragic.  Luckily, I found an item that can be dressed up with a pencil skirt or dressed down with jeans for more relaxed holiday gatherings.

Topshop Semi-Sheer Sweater ($95)

The texture and hue remind me of those snowflake doilies I cut in elementary school.  Like the idea of a “fancy” sweater?  I like the lacy sleeves on this Anthropologie pullover.  Need something under-$50?  I love this Piperlime sweater with embellished sleeves.

So how do you jazz up a simple sweater?  I would spend a little more time on my hair (I like this this bouncy ponytail or this twisty bun.).  I’d also add a bold lipstick, like Bite Beauty’s Luminous Creme Lipstick (I like the magenta shade.).  And don’t forget a big, sparkly cocktail ring (The mix of blush and black is sublime.).

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
