Today's Outfit of the Night is what I wore to a Christmas Eve party. I tried to be as festive as possible by incorporating berry/cranberry shades and lots of gold sparkle. I even included my brother's OOTN in case you were curious! ;)
I've worn this lace dress several times this season and even have an OOTD where I styled it more casually with riding boots in San Francisco (seen here.) I love how classy the lace makes the dress and the cranberry color is perfect for this time of year! I paired the dress with a gold braided belt, gold glitter heels, and gold jewelry.
It was quite chilly out, so I decided to wear these adorable black bow tights. Since the dress is pretty simple, the tights add just the right amount of flair without being too overwhelming.
For jewelry, I wore the Bird Cage Bangle from Jewelmint and the Bentley Blonde geometric necklace and earring set from Shoplately.
I love how the gold necklace really brightens up the neckline of the dress!
For makeup, I also focused on gold and cranberry shades, while adding some multi-colored glitter to the inner corners of the eyes and gold glitter to frame the upper and lower lash lines.
I originally had a deep berry lip, but thought it was too much, so I blotted it down and added a light peach gloss to mute it a little.
My brother and I were matching! I thought it would be fun to include his outfit and where everything he is wearing is from as well. (Let me know if you would like to see more of him on this blog!)
Again, it was very cold (for Southern California anyway,) so I wore a thick coat to keep me warm (and a cardigan underneath for added warmth.) I also wore this satin bow bag with a gold chain that I am currently in love with for nights out.
