What to Wear to a Christmas Party

Sarah from For the Love is guest posting today! 
She is sharing her ideas on what to wear to a Christmas party with you.

Hi, I'm Sarah. I have a blog called For the Love, because I love blogging about anything and everything that inspires me. I've always loved fashion, and over the last few years I have developed an addiction to finding fashionable styles on a really frugal budget. I'm so glad that Dianna would have me back to show you some holiday pairings and styles on a -just spent all my money on Christmas gifts, how could I even think about buying something for myself- budget.

1.A casual gift exchange party with friends: Cardigan: American Eagle via DownEast Outlet, $6
Ruffle top:Target, Wide leg trouser jeans: auction retailer, $12, Gold heels:local clothing sale $5, Scarf: Target
2. A semi-formal Christmas dinner: Cardigan: AE same as above, Dress: Vintage, belonged to my Gram, Belt: Vintage, Thrifted, $2, Printed Tights: Vintage, belonged to my Gram, Heels: Same as above.
3. Husband's fancy schmancy work party: LBD(Little Black Dress): Vintage, Thrifted $6 for those of you that are local, I found it at D.I., Shoes: Kenneth Cole, auction retailer, $15
4. Church dinner: Top:Abercrombie&Fitch via Plato's Closet, Cardigan: Kersh, auction retailer $5. Skirt: Thrifted, $5, Tights: Same as above, Heels: Gifted, Old Navy, Necklace: Charlotte Russe $3.


What I've learned about this season's holiday styles: Muted neutrals go well with pops of color. Particularly jewel tones and pastels. 

Don't be afraid to try vintage. Check your grandma's closet and your local thrift store.
Bright lips are a killer way to stand out this season.


  1. Great looks and good ideas. So, basically, my daughters just need to look in my closet for vintage clothes! Or should I say, I must be in style!

  2. Love the pink dress and white cardigan combo!!!! It looks cute and warm :) Awesome ideas! Best, Cat
