The end of every year is the perfect time for parties and get-togethers. To honor that time-old tradition, I wanted to share with you my favorite party looks from the past fall.
A touch of Red
I love jersey dresses. I have more than enough, and I still continue to make more. They’re fun, they’re comfy, and they’re excellent for creating cute party looks. All one really needs is a few accessories.
For this look, I paired a bishop-sleeved LBD with a lace petticoat, a lace belt, and red heels. With red details, this look would be perfect for a quiet Christmas with the family. When I was a kid, we’d all wear something nice for Christmas dinner. There’d be candles and soft music, and all the food you could eat. Beautiful clothes made the night all the more special. This look is something I’d wear if we still celebrated Christmas at home. Traditions have changed over the years, and now I’ll enjoy the holidays with Charming and RPGs!
While wearing a pretty dress, of course.
Our Pretty Basic Party Dress is a surprisingly versatile thing. It can be turned into all kinds of cute styles with accessories alone. I originally created this party look with Halloween theme parties in mind. With long pearls and a layered hem, this look reminds me of the Twenties. This look will work for all kinds of parties, though, especially if you have a fun personality to go with it. This look is super-cute, and now that I reminded myself of it, I kinda want to see if I can pull it off in real life.
New Year’s Eve might be the perfect night for this!
Back in August, I was wondering what to do with a piece of crinkle fabric. After days and days of pondering, I decided to turn it into a skirt. The process was quick and easy, and resulted in both a cute skirt, and a tutorial on how to make one. The Crinkle Skirt is wide of hem, and has an elastic waist. It’s comfy and cute, and paired with our Lace Top, it makes a fun, casual party look. This is my favorite of the style-up -post I did with The Crinkle Skirt. The tight lace top balances out the wide hem, and the two textures look really nice together.
Warm and Cute
Just a few weeks ago, I introduced you to The Faerie Dragon Shawlette. It’s a lazy-curve vortex designed for two contrast-colored yarns. To celebrate the launch of the pattern, I created warm winter party looks with The Faerie Dragon. There were enough for two posts (one here, and the second here), and I loved creating the styles. This one is my favorite of the bunch. Our PuffBall Skirt paired with a lace blouse, a corset, and the beautiful shawlette created a look that’s fun and pretty unique. I really like the way this look turned out!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my favorite party looks. As this is this year’s last blog post, I want to wish you all a very happy Christmas, and a magical New Year. Enjoy yourselves, and remember to feel pretty!
