It’s the most wonderful time of the year! While we didn’t have a white Christmas we can still celebrate in our own fabulous 852 way. Plus, there is one perk to not having mounds of snow to shovel, okay two perks, you can show off your festive attire with ease thanks to the absence of heavy winter layers! In this seasonal post, I’ll show you both how I’m wearing some holiday looks and how you can score a similar style too. And because we love supporting local brands, I have paired them with the latest and greatest in Kotur clutches! Time to spread a little joy to the world and to your wardrobe.

Dress; Are You Am I; Heels: Nine West; Bag: KOTUR; Polish: Essie, Lipstick: Nars; Candle: Guerlain
And you thought only Rudolph could light up the night! Wait until you step out in a fabulous little red frock and watch those heads turn. I paired my S.Nine dress with a strappy black Fendi heel and this art deco inspired Kotur clutch but this bag looks perfect when set off against a simple garnet slip dress too. Match the lips and nails in an equally merry hue and keep the accessories simple opting for one statement piece. Tie it all up in a bow with these Nine West heels, which make a great present! Even without the Guerlain candle some might even say you glow. Now get ready for a not so silent night!

We don’t have to have snow for you to get inspired by a winter wonderland. Be your own Frosty covered in shimmering blue and white. I opted for a white suit to set off the Kotur blue glitter clutch but you can easily reverse this look and go for a blue suit and white blouse like this silky smooth one from Grana. Toss on a smattering of gleaming accessories from the likes of Giuseppe Zanotti, a Skaagen watch, and an Alexis Bittar ring and you will surely be a silver belle! Use this Benefit highlighter to add a little twinkle to your eyes and cheekbones for a smile that shines.

“Holidays are joyful, there’s always something new,” sings the late great Karen Carpenter. And new this year we have the updated #GetSmartBag from Kotur which holds your iPhone right on the outside of the clutch. Now you can stay connected without emptying the contents of your bag to do so. Because this bag is so small and sleek it can pair with really over the top pieces and not compete. I teamed my hot pink version with a very big and bright Ellery coat and BCBG jumpsuit. This cranberry clutch is the perfect pop of color for the very over the top Tamara Mellon gold fringe kimono (Please Santa! I’ve been so good!). Because it is essential to decorate every branch I’ve also added a few very luxe bangles and a pair of on trend ear jackets from The9thMuse’s own recently launched TWELVEoTWO collection.

Now for my favorite part of all- the parties! I go for the gold in my P.A.M. cage dress and heels but you can get a similar look for your feet in the Valentino rockstud cage flats. These are so comfy you will be able to stay up all night dancing away … or waiting for Santa! What better to rock around the Christmas tree in than a dress that is truly evergreen? It will last season after season with this classic shape and fit. Spice it up with a bold feather necklace and this glitter globe clutch from Kotur. You will be shaking and shimming all season long. Fill this sleek black H&M vase up with a mash of bold blooms and bring them to the hostess of the moment and she will surely be grateful.
The holidays are in full force so get your shopping sorted and perfect your party garb too! From jingly accessories, to shimmery shifts, to fabulous clutches you have a host of options here to delight and inspire. It’s beginning to look a lot like fabulous!
