WHAT TO WEAR TO HOLIDAY PARTIES
You know that now-infamous scene in The Devil Wears Prada where the she-devil Miranda Priestley herself chews out a staffer when she suggests an editorial on florals? Well, florals for spring might not have been groundbreaking buuuuutt for winter, hell yeah fuckin' right they are.
This Tory Burch dress has that elusive magic of quiet elegance that renders it timeless and season-less. Cactus, robin's egg blue orchards, and ivy leaves twist and turn in this eye-catching print making it an unstoppable force of fashion in your wardrobe.
This dress might not scream millenial bad b@%$# with 200 thousand Instagram followers but that is the beauty of styling, ain't it? Worn with Chanel slingbacks, a ladylike bag and fur, this dress would be a vision on mommacita. But paired with a shearling-trimmed leather jacket (this one is a gorgeous See by Chloé), a pop of pink clutch (Marni on sale at The Outnet!), and quirky oxford heels (Clarks FTW!), this dress has a youthful fresh vibe that works now and later.
Yes, you will be wearing this dress for the next 75 years so this is good use of your pennies, nickels, and dimes in that eye-sore of a piggy bank that stands proudly on your nightstand.
Plus, a dress with aforementioned timeless elegance can take you to Cousin Benny's Bar Mitzvah paired with minimalist pumps, and to Christmas dinner with the fam (yes, you celebrate Chrismukkah because Seth Cohen taught you well!) It will also take you to a beachside dinner for that Hawaii vacation you've been fantasizing about since you maxed out your credit card to book your tickets three months ago.
So take my word for it and wear this outfit to a holiday party this year. And take my word for it and wear this dress to a holiday party every year till you become that fabulous grandma who swears too much, wears sequin berets with oversize bifocals and smokes pink cigars in Atlantic City (if she isn't actually #goals, I have no idea who is).
