Some Holiday Dressing For Your Salad

November is in full swing, and the holiday party invites are starting to come in. I think I had my holiday party attire planned from the moment I saw Marchesa's SS11 collection (and wrote about it here). Since then, I've been daydreaming of a jumpsuit/bolero/body harness combo for my next yuletide soiree. 

I did some recon on Shopstyle today and came up with a couple of options for a great inspired by Marchesa moment. Check 'em out: 

Option 1: All about the harness. Nothing can really compare to Marchesa's elegant web of body jewelry, but there are a ton of awesome options to sift through on Etsy

Whiting & Davis, Elizabeth and James, Vero Moda
Elizabeth & James sandals, ASOS jumpsuit, Whiting & Davis minaudiere, Foley+Corinna bolero, Dmetal harness (avail on Etsy)

Option 2: This version is a bit more opulent than the last. And how amazing is this Judith Leiber birdcage minaudiere?  Her pieces are so beautiful, and there really is one for every personality/taste/style/woman. Can she please do a designer collab with some major retailer, so that I can get my hands on even a fraction of this amazingness?

I'm heading into some uncharted territory by choosing a jumpsuit into this year's holidaywear,but I think the holidays are a perfect time  to play around with your look.  With so much festivity and excitement in the air, it's hard to keep from incorporating some of that into your attire!  



The Freaks Come Out at Night

In some respect, I think I am still recovering from the whirlwind that was Halloween weekend.  That's my lame excuse for posting these photos so late.  My first L.A. Halloween was a success, though. I can officially check the box on attending the W. Hollywood Carnival, an experience that will not soon be forgotten.  

This year I decided to switch up my costume for each night out.  I'm a big fan of using the contents of my closet to create Halloween looks, which isn't hard to do, considering the amount of black clothing and sparkly jewels I own. 

Friday: VAMPire 

Had to share a close-up of my fangs.  It takes a lot to keep from wearing them outside of Halloween dress-up!

Saturday Night: Rachel & Brad

I loved both of my costumes this year, but RZ + Brad take the cake because, for the first time ever, Chris agreed to do a couples costume.  Doesn't he make a great Brad to my Rachel?

I hope everyone enjoyed their Halloween this year!
