What to Wear for a Christmas Party

The holiday season is upon us, which means there are many parties to attend and many reasons to get all dolled up for the most wonderful time of the year! You might have a work Christmas party to go to for you or your spouse, a friend’s or relative’s Christmas party or you may be hosting your very own Christmas party this year! You know what a Christmas party means? It means it is time to go shopping! Even though you will probably only wear your Christmas party outfit a few times, you still want to find the perfect outfit to wear to the Christmas party whether you will be attending a party that is dressy or casual. There are so many clothes, shoes, and accessories to choose from, so how do you pick? Here are some ideas of what to wear to a Christmas party that will make you look and feel totally fantastic!
Sparkle and Shine
Glitter, metallic, and sequins are huge in fashion this year! Any excuse we ladies get to wear something sparkly and shiny, we take it! Finding a cocktail dress that has sparkles, sequined details, or a cocktail dress with silver or gold metallic finish is a great choice for a Christmas party. The way the Christmas lights and festive holiday decorations reflect on your dress will make you stand out! There are a number of styles to choose from when it comes to finding the perfect cocktail dress, so select the one that you feel most confident in. If you wanted to wear something other than a cocktail dress, there are beautiful sequin and metallic skirts to choose from in all different styles and lengths. When you are out shopping for your Christmas party, just remember that you cannot go wrong with a sparkly dress or skirt this holiday season!
Getting into the Christmas Spirit
If you are looking at an outfit possibility and it does not include red, green, black, white, gray, silver, or gold, then you should move along. Get into the Christmas spirit by sticking with Christmas colors. Doing so, will also help you narrow down some of your options. You could wear the sparkly dress with red or black tights, the sequin skirt with black leggings and a cute sweater, a black or red dress, a chic black blouse with a pencil skirt or skinny jeans, or a high-waisted skirt with a crop top. Any one of those options will give you a sexy, classy, and sophisticated look. Of course, it is winter time also, so adding a black or white fitted blazer to your outfit will give you an entirely polished look that you will love!
The Perfect Shoes
Finding the perfect shoes is vital when creating the perfect outfit for a Christmas party. Shoes can change your entire look by dressing it up or dressing it down. The great part about shoes is that you can go buy a new pair of shoes and even though you may only wear your Christmas outfit this one time, you can wear your shoes over and over again! Black or Nude heels will go with pretty much anything in your closet and are also perfect for a Christmas party! You can also add a pop of Christmas color to your look by purchasing red heels or sparkly pumps. If you are looking for something that will look great with a more casual outfit, then a pair of suede ankle boots is simple and fun. The most important part of finding the perfect shoes is not only that they will compliment your outfit, but that they are comfortable.
The Accessories
Now that you have your Christmas party outfit and the perfect shoes to go with it, it is time to accessorize! Adding accessories gives you the opportunity to add your personal touch and will pull your entire outfit together. If you chose to wear a solid colored dress such as, black, white, or red, then pairing that dress with a sequined clutch would be an excellent option. If you chose to wear an outfit with much sparkle and shine, then carrying a solid matte or shiny clutch would pair perfectly. If you are planning on wearing an up-do, then chandelier earrings, and a pendant necklace would work well. If you are going to wear your hair down, you should try diamond stud earrings and a statement necklace. Christmas parties are a great opportunity for you to dress up and give you a chance to wear all of that fun festive jewelry that only works once a year, so have fun with it! Short on accessories? No problem! Online retailers like Morana Online have got you covered!

HOW TO PIN YOUR WAY TO THE PERFECT WEDDING Pinterest is taking over the world of wedding planning, how to be in on the act.

The question was popped, the family told, the date set...now what? Increasingly the first place that most newly engaged couples turn to is Pinterest. It seems the obvious choice, being one of the fastest growing social media platforms out there today. In fact, a fair few pinners already have a head start on the planning pins with an incredible 70% of users admitting to having already made wedding boards before they are even engaged,   http://mashable.com/2014/07/21/social-media-wedding-survey/.

The sheer volume of images on Pinterest is staggering, it can be a little daunting, not to mention time consuming wading your way through it all. The best wedding plan? Find some top-notch pinners whose wedding boards you can follow. And, as well as popular wedding pinners, pinterest can be a great place to check out potential wedding venues. When you’ve found a venue, have a look at their pinterest profile, they are going to have a loads of wedding ideas suitable for their location. The same goes for your wedding dress designer.

But, first up, my favourites...

Pin down a venue:

There really isn’t a limit to how much you can use Pinterest in your wedding planning, as well as a source of inspiration and general wedding ideas it can be used to find everything from your caterer to your wedding venue. The attraction? You get to see not just the venue’s official photos, but also every image taken there that has ever been pinned, the whole picture in every sense. All in one place.


http://uk.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=wedding%20venues&term_meta%5B%5D=wedding%7Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=venues%7Ctyped&remove_refine=uk%7Ctyped
http://uk.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=wedding%20venues&term_meta%5B%5D=wedding%7Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=venues%7Ctyped&remove_refine=uk%7Ctyped

A search for ‘wedding venues uk’ comes up with not just locations, but all kinds of pins. The amount of pins on this platform mean that it’s easy to be more specific with your search, say, ‘wedding venues Worcestershire’.


http://uk.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=wedding%20venues%20worcestershire%20courts&term_meta%5B%5D=wedding%7Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=venues%7Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=worcestershire%7Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=courts%7Cguide%7Cword%7C11&add_refine=courts%7Cguide%7Cword%7C11
http://uk.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=wedding%20venues%20worcestershire%20courts&term_meta%5B%5D=wedding%7
Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=venues%7Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=worcestershire%7
Ctyped&term_meta%5B%5D=courts%7Cguide%7Cword%7C11&add_refine=courts%7Cguide%7Cword%7C11


From there you can find the venue that has been getting the most pins, in this case, ‘Birtsmorton Court, http://www.birtsmortoncourt.com/’ and it’s then a hop, skip and a jump to check out their own pins and get a good idea of how a wedding at their venue might look.

The joy of pinterest is that once you have found a few boards or pinners to like and follow similar pins will start popping up for you automatically, so in effect the job is being half done for you. You just have to start pinning.


Who to follow:

Wedding Chicks have a pretty impressive collection of boards on every wedding category you could think of. They’ve stacked up over 25,000 pins! Following these boards alone is sure to keep you busy. http://uk.pinterest.com/weddingchicks/. Helpfully, their boards are clearly set up so you can pick and choose what you want to see.


http://uk.pinterest.com/weddingchicks/
http://uk.pinterest.com/weddingchicks/


Style Me Pretty is one of the hottest wedding blogs on the web today, and their pinterest boards are amazing. 120 boards, nearly 6 million followers they are a wedding force to be reckoned with. There are a lot of pins here though so my advice would be to follow just the boards that you like so as not not spend years on your wedding planning.

If all the pale pinks and gleaming white boards are a bit sickly sweet for you, if you are planning a bit of an anti-wedding wedding then try Stone Fox Bride. They make good wedding dresses, they also make good boards. A different take on bridal inspiration.

How to Dress Like a Rock Star

The Rock n Roll look is effortlessly cool, its grunge and chic at the same time, and focuses on making a statement with your fashion. Dressing like a rock star requires imagination and dedication to looking ridiculously cool – think you can pull it off? Here are a few fail-safe ways to transform look:

Band Tees



Somewhat synonymous with the rock n’ roll era, the band tee is both a timeless cry of devotion to your favourite band and an easy way to inject the rock star element into any outfit. Coupled with some distressed denim, skin-tight black wet-look leggings, or even a cute maxi skirt: the band tee immediately creates the rock look, no matter what it’s paired with. Check these out for some inspiration.

http://www.youjustmademylist.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/hot_topic_t-shirts.jpg

The Hair



If bright green Mohawks don’t really do anything for you, gone are the days when hair dye was straight-up permanent. Hair Chalk is a revolution – you can add as much or as little colour as you’d like, without the commitment (and huge salon bills) of dying your hair. Hair chalk only lasts a couple of days at the most and is inexpensive, and most of all, a lot of fun!

If you are looking for a more permanent look, a great addition to the rocker look is the ombre trend that seems to be everywhere right now! Ombre, or dip-dying, is the gradual changing of hair colour from shaft to ends. Any colour combination imaginable is possible – and with your hair enough of a rocker statement itself throwing together the rest of the look will be a piece of cake!



Accessories



If I were to say “rocker” to someone, chances are they will have a pretty good indication of what kind of fashion this would look like. Think hard and soft mediums together, a combination of blacks and metals with bright, full colours like yellow and pink. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings and ear cuffs – you can paint a pretty good picture in your head of the type of fashion jewelry rockers love!

Rocker-style fashion jewellery is all about fun and self expression!

Textures and Materials



It’s no secret that the rock-star look for both guys and girls is very much centred around leather, denim, metals and the colour black. So what do you get if you put all of these elements together? A kick ass rocker look, that’s what. The one big fundamental for any rock-star wardrobe is the quintessential leather jacket. Here is one of my favourites jackets for the girls.

Makeup Tips and Tricks



Winged eyeliner and bright lips are a must! This look goes fantastic with the sometimes OTT fashion jewelry rockers love. If you have an unsteady hand (like most mere mortals) there are plenty of tutorials online for the perfect rock look winged eyeliner. Couple a smoky winged eye with a purple or red lip and you’re in business! These are some of our favourite looks:









Denim and Boots



If you don’t think you can rock tight leather pants – and let’s face it, most of us can’t – the distressed denim look is the way to go. Denim jeans, light or dark, look amazing when they’re distressed, ripped and torn and go perfect with an oversized band tee and a leather jacket. Throw the outfit together with a pair of brown or black leather ankle boots and your rock star look can’t fail! And we all know, you can never go past the perfect pair of black Doc Martens. Check these out:








Remember – the most important thing in styling your rock star self is to be you. Fashion is about expression and having fun. You ARE a rock star, regardless of how you wear it.

Great Ideas for the Fifth Anniversary: Wood Rings to the Rescue

According to the traditional wedding anniversary gift list, the fifth anniversary can be a tricky one: wood. Luckily, with the increasing popularity of eco-friendly wood jewelry, the choices are much better than they were in the past. Back in the day, you were pretty much stuck with things like wooden-soled platform shoes for ladies and briar wood pipes for the gents. Today, koa wood rings are a much better solution for both. (And needless to say, healthier than the pipe, too.) 

Why Wood Rings 

Even if you weren’t buying for the fifth anniversary, wooden rings make attractive gifts for a host of good reasons. The koa wood frequently used in wood rings was once used by the ancient Hawaiians to build canoes, spears, and paddles that are now often considered priceless works of pre-industrial art. Koa wood is known for its amazing variety of grain structures and an incredible range of colors, too. In addition to its timeless beauty, when used in conjunction with titanium the koa wood ring is hypoallergenic and eco-friendly to boot. 

More Than Just Rings 

It gets even better: you’re not just restricted to rings anymore, either. Although an affinity for wood rings started the modern wood jewelry craze, today you can find such varied wood pieces as earrings, cufflinks, and bracelets to name just a few of the possibilities. So if that guy on your list wants nothing to do with wearing another ring, fear not. He would probably love a handsome set of koa wood cufflinks. 

You can always find a great selection of genuine koa wood jewelry and more at Altin Place. They also offer the finest rolex repair available. Their true CW-21 Certified Watchmakers use only authentic factory parts and offer impeccable service with very attractive pricing.
