I don't know about you, but my December has been nonstop go go go! Between the Art Basel, endless holiday events and keeping up with my social life (what's that?!)... it's been both exciting and exhausting to say the least. With so many places to be comes the need for the perfect outfit(s). And yes, that's plural, because when you run into the same people, you don't want to be the girl that outfit repeats. Though no one is keeping track, it's the simple fact that you don't want to be self-conscious. Not only that, in the midst of all the holiday madness, who honestly has the time to go outfit shopping, or better yet, find the perfect dress when you actually need it? Said no woman ever! *Cue Murphy's law*
All of this dress shopping can get real expensive real quick, which is why Lulusis my go-to destination for all things holiday from attire to accessories. All of their pieces are super affordable and on-trend, and the quality is amazing. Most of their dresses, specifically, are under $50 with some ranging from as low as $30 all the way to a few hundred dollars. Their selection is huge and it's nearly impossible to leave empty-handed. Trust me, get that credit card ready girl because the temptation is real.
In tonight's head-to-toe holiday look from Lulus, I opted for a black mesh romper with gold sequins. It's fun, festive, and an unexpected alternative to your typical black dress. Don't get me wrong, I have an extensive collection of LBDs, but the holidays are the time to pull out those awesome outfits that have been collecting dust because you have no occasion for them. Well, my friend, the holidays are your occasion. Own it. Have fun with it. Now is the time. You only live once. Catch my drift?
The fit is extremely flattering between the cinched waist to give me shape (Lord knows I need it), the feminine neckline and the slouchy sleeves. It's classic and effortlessly elegant. The beauty about this romper is that it can pass as conservative while still being perfect for a dinner date, the club, a cocktail party, New Year's Eve... you name it! Talk about diversity.
I went for oversized hoop earrings to add a bit of drama because, ya know, theholidays. Hoops have made a major comeback in the recent years (did they ever really leave though?) and I rock them in all shapes an sizes. These are sold out, but you can shop all of Lulus hoop earrings here. Since my earrings make such a statement, I paired them with this dainty gold ring setas too much jewelry can take away from an outfit. #lessismore
Since my romper is the star of the show, I'm keeping it simple with these gold strappy sandals. Unfortunately these are sold out, as well, but you can choose your desired size and add yourself to the waiting list (like the rest of the products that are currently sold out) and you'll get an email as soon as it's back in stock. Voilà! Until then, you can shop their wide-selection of heels here. Did I mention you can create wishlists and name each folder to keep all of your must-haves organized? Oh yeah. A shopaholic's dream.
