One of my favorite things during the holidays other than spending time with my loved ones is dressing for the festivities! From ugly sweater parties with friends to cocktails at rooftop bars, there is always a reason to dress.

I find that I feel a bit more spontaneous and daring during this time…with all the love and cheer in the air it pushes me out of my comfort zone. This year I decided to channel a holiday vixen vibe for our family Christmas party. The inspiration behind my look was a vampy, dark maven. I found the perfect lace and nude dress from the New York & Company Holiday Dress Boutique. I loved everything about this number, the fit, the delicate lace and of course how strategically the nude lining was placed. I paired this Eva Mendes number with a black wrap choker and a deep purple lip. For my hair, I pulled it back in a low, no fuss pony.

The New York & Company Holiday Dress Boutique is the perfect one-stop-shop for all your dress needs! Let me know which ones you’re eyeing and what look you’ll be going for this holiday season.
