‘Tis The Season…for deciding on what you will be wearing for all your holiday festivities. This is the time of year to take it up a notch and put your best high-heeled foot forward. This holiday season is no exception and with the reemergence of velvet as the go-to fabric things just got a lot easier! Our repertoire of silk, leather, fur & sparkle has a new friend in town.
Here are six looks which are sure to please and simplify your dressing anxiety! Penny Lane’s holiday outfit inspirations aka Penny Lane’s take on classic with an edge. We got this!
VaVaVoom Velvet. The LBD taken to a whole new level. Assymetric top, ruching and a cascading ruffle give you that shapely, elegant look. Throw on pearls, pearls, and more pearls & a colorful purse and you are ready to go! You simply cannot go wrong with a black velvet dress.
