My Style Challenge: Holiday Parties!

I had three holiday parties to attend last week, whew! I decided to rock three very unique looks since each soiree was a completely different type of event. First up was the South Moon Under | Refinery 29 Holiday Party:

All my outfit pics came out a little blurry, but this one is probably the best. Julie, I love you but less shakey shakey when you use my camera! As you can see, I finally rocked my leather on leathuh look - something I mentioned wanted to do last year! It was freezing out and I wanted to look rock and roll while staying warm so this was the perfect look. I'm wearing: Leather leggings by The Row, leather tee from Nordstrom, vintage faux fur jacket, necklace from Urban Outfitters, Robert Clergerie boots.

Next up my office department had its own holiday party (I've already posted my company's holiday party look). Our department is pretty big, about 30 or so people, and I wanted to look festive and dressed up while still being work appropriate!
Needless to say, I was a smash in this oversized pink houndstooth print dress! It's such a stand out piece, I wish I had more opportunities to wear it, but it's just not an every day kind of dress.
I paired it with a faux suede jacker with some peaked shoulders and a draped front for fun layering warm time. I'm wearing: Marc Jacobs dress, Mossimo jacket from Target, Foley + Corinna bag, Sam Edelman silver wedges, Banana Republic stacking rings, Juicy Couture bracelets, vintage Gucci watch.

Last up was my husband's company holiday party. His office is relatively young, I think the average age is somewhere in the mid-20s! They tend to dress more casually as well, but I refuse to wear jeans to any holiday party!
Since it was a younger crowd I pulled out my fabulous mini ice skater dress! I'm wearing: Opening Ceremony dress, red shoes and teal blazer both from Zara, strand of pearls from Nordstrom, furry leopard bag from Revolve Clothing, earrings from South Moon Under, ring from my mom, purple belt from H&M, new hair from Noufal Haircolor Studio (more on that tomorrow!)
Whew, I'm holiday partied out now!
