dressing for every holiday occasion

Tis the season.  That season to gift give, gather with your loved ones, but most importantly dress up for all those holiday festivities...even in the sub-zero temperatures.  With many types of celebrations that range from low-key office parties to more formal family affairs it's tough to choose what to wear, but with a great site like ShopLately  you can elevate what you already have in your closet for any holiday occasion.

In my 20s holiday parties ranged from a number of various house parties to all you can drink events at venues or restaurants.  All reasons to wear my highest heels, the least amount of fabric and lots of glitter (plenty and plenty of glitter).  However, in my 30s, and as a mom, my holiday parties now include tots running around and are a little more low key than the 4am ragers we used to enjoy.  As you can imagine, holiday outfit styles have somewhat changed since my 20s, but it's still important for me to feel great. Dressing for the holidays can be exciting and defeating at the same time when you're thinking of what to wear, but with a great place to have lots of options and some good friends you can find the perfect outfit in no time.

Luckily for me, I have great blogger friends who inspire my outfits daily.  We recently all got together to showcase some of the holiday outfits we put together inspired by some of our favorite picks from ShopLately.  With a little bit of old and new, we all came up with great creations that were unique, different and really spoke to our personalities.  More importantly - perfect for any type of holiday occasion from casual to formal.  We each were inspired by so many great options at ShopLately, that each individual look was customized for our own types of holiday celebrations.  Honestly - it's really hard to not find something that you can wear on ShopLately.  If you have never visited ShopLately, be prepared to dedicate at least a good 2 hours exploring this marketplace of great designers that cater to all.  Jewelry, clothes, shoes, beauty products, you name it, it's there - it's pretty much the only destination you need when you're planning your holiday attire or even holiday shopping for your girlfriends.  I mean, who doesn't love something shiny or something that just makes you feel good?

Are these two necklaces together? If so, are they both Lily Wang?
