holiday party ready.

holiday party ready.
dress: addie rose boutique // heels: sole society (similar – on major sale!) // clutch: thrifted (love this one) // earrings: etsy (love these) // bracelet: j.crew // nails: essie “mob square” // lips: wet n wild “penthouse sweet”

as i mentioned last week, this past weekend was my company holiday party.  i had wanted to wear something sparkly because it just screams holiday and also because i like to break stereotypes about accountants 😉  i had looked into renting this dress and was totally sold on it but with tax and insurance etc it was going to be $100 which was just far too much for one night!

so alas, i ended up going with an LBD.  i actually borrowed this one from a friend because i have worn my own LBD so many times lately that i just felt like i needed something at least new to me.  it is from a local boutique here in kansas city that i am seriously thinking i need to go visit because this dress was amazing!  it fit so perfectly, with a fun neckline and it was my favorite style: fit and flare!  because of the unique neckline i decided to forgo my usual statement necklace and went with statement earrings instead.  i loved how it all came together and had a fun night in this ensemble!

also, i wore lipstick!  this is big for me since i never used to like it much; weird textures and tastes, wears off, gets on teeth, can’t kiss anyone, the list goes on.  however i wanted to give this outfit a pop of color and also wanted to feel like an adult so i ran to my local wal-mart of all places and found this cheap (i’m talking $3.50 with tax) one that is actually amazing!  i definitely recommend it, i think it may have transformed me into a lipstick person and since it is so cheap you can afford to pick out a few!

i would love if you would share your favorite lipsticks in the comments since i am now in the market!
