Holiday Party Attire

Dress: LC Lauren Conrad, Blazer: LC Lauren Conrad, Necklace: T+J Designs, Rings: Posh Locket, Handbag: ShoeMint, Heels: ShoeMint

While baking sweet treats and wrapping presents are certainly essential elements of the holiday season, having the ideal party ensemble is a crucial factor to insuring your year ends on a fashionable note. With a slew of get-togethers on the holiday horizon, the hunt for a killer dress and equally fabulous heels usually starts mid October for me. Once I have two festive dresses and multiple re-wear plans in check, it becomes all about the shoes.

As a self diagnosed shoe-a-holic, this is always the most challenging task, as it should be, because all it takes to conquer the holiday season on a fabulous foot, is one insanely uh-mazing pump. A simple, sleek, and utterly chic heel is and will be your holiday saving grace. Find this heel and hold on for dear life, because any last minute plans, which notoriously happen when visiting family, will insure that you instantly look put together and fab wherever your holiday plans may take you. This season, I was lucky enough to find my saving grace heel early. Hands down this metallic ShoeMint
 pump, which not only warrants a barrage of lingering glances, but also matches every holiday look my mind could muster up, (mostly involving sequins) is officially my go-to holiday heel.

If you’re still on the hunt for a head turning holiday ensemble, I’ve pulled some pretty party dresses and paired them with my favorite ShoeMint heels. If you have yet to sign up for ShoeMint
, which you may already know that I’m addicted to, as seen here and here, I urge you all to quickly sign up and add these metallic must-haves to your list before they're all gone. (No obligation when signing up, just simply sign up and browse their uh-mazing selection) Holiday heels, check. Dress, check. Now it's time for the real fun... Shopping for gifts. Eek. Where did 2012 go?





Below are some of my favorite holiday dresses that I paired with the perfect ShoeMint heels. Don’t stress about breaking the bank to look fab this fall, all of these dresses and heels are under $100!

Bright Colored Dress/Edgy Black Heel

Put your best foot forward this holiday season by rocking a fab pair of ShoeMint heels, check out their just released November pumps.
