A festive cocktail dress is always a safe choice for the silly season. But this year, why not spice up your soirée style with one of these fabulous alternatives? Embellished jackets, sequined harem pants, and pastel feathered skirts are unique and sophisticated pieces that are anything but ordinary. Steal the spotlight at your next holiday party in one of these outside-the-box ensembles.
When we spotted the latest Spring '12 Bridal and party collection from J.Crew we thought two things. Firstly, excellent timing! J.Crew now ships to Australia (what? You didn't know?), so we can actually shop the look book instead of admiring it from a distance. Secondly, yay for beautiful bridal lines that don't break the budget. J.Crew knows how to deliver on the femme-front, but minus the hefty prices tag. There are chic silk halter neck gowns for the classic minimalist and more whimsical creations for the playful at heart. For wedding guests, J.Crew is offering up an irresistible selection of dresses dipped in a rainbow of pretty colours. We personally love the bold, yet still appropriate, floral print sheaths. Peruse the look book then shop the entire J.Crew collection via Shopstyle Australia!
We love it when the fashion set come out to party, and party they sure did at last night's Women's Wear Daily 100th Anniversay Gala. The reason we like to see them shake their tail feathers? To see what they wear of course! All of fashion's big hitters were there; Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour, Coco Rocha, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Diane von Furstenberg and Vera Wang to name a few. Even Gossip Girl Jessica Szohr managed to slap on a smile (well, sort of) for this big night out. Step through and take a peek fashion's A-team partying down.
