Now that it is holiday time, the party invites and holiday travel have begun. If you are like me and like to dress up for holiday parties but don't have the cash to spend, try my little secret.
1. Get your best solid color outfit.
A red dress that hugs your curves. Your little black dress that you rock so effortlessly. Or your stand-by dressy jeans and cute blouse.
2. Add heels. High heels always make an outfit go from cute to chic.
3. Rock a purse with some bling bling. That's right! It's the holidays and it's time to sparkle. If you want to make one purchase this year for yourself that is a "WANT" not a "NEED", get a shinny handbag to take it up a notch.
Your curvy red dress and a gold clutch. PERFECT!
Your little black dress and a silver handbag. CLASSIC!
Your dressy jeans and blouse with a glitter wristlet. EDGY!
