Hi everyone!

It's party season, people, and that means that our social and style endurance is about to be put to the ultimate test. Family affairs. Cocktails with your favorites. Christmas Eve festivities. Holiday brunch. Dinner dates. Christmas parties with your coworkers. The list of obligatory (but, hey we aren't complaining) holiday functions is endless, which invites the inevitable question, "What do I wear?"

Why not sparkle as bright as your Christmas lights this holiday season? Dressing up is arguably one of the most anticipated perks of the holiday season for us fashion-savvy souls, so why not take advantage of the pure magic that is Christmas and go all out with glitter, sequins, leather and, of course, red lips!

Today's look is perfect for date night, holiday Christmas parties or even for a champagne campaign with your girlfriends! This Adelyn Rae dress is the epitome of holiday chic with its bold, patterned sequin design mixing gold, bronze and silver (quite possibly one of my favorite combos in life)! Aside from the pure brilliance of the aesthetic, the fit is equally fabulous -- think of it as an updated LBD.

Throw on an edgy leather jacket -- this Free People one is absolutely everything and even has a drawstring on the inside to adjust the shape! -- and you're ready for mistletoe, champagne and great company!
