Fête Accomplie: Part 2

As November draws closer and closer (how is that even possible?!), so too does party season.  Before you know it, you'll be getting invites - whether it's to your office mixer, a New Year's party, or a fun little gift exchange with your besties. There are so many reasons to celebrate in the coming months and since parties generally mean dressing up (yay!), we thought you might need a little inspiration.  Here are 3 pretty looks (scroll down to last week's post for 3 more...) to help get you prepped for the madness.  Though dresses are always a safe bet, I love the idea of trying something new and fun, especially around the holidays, whether it's a sweater and skirt combo in chic winter white, an edgy lace blouse with rockstar accessories, or an eclectic mix of printed pants with an easy chambray shirt.  The best part?  You'll be able to add these pieces into your wardrobe all year 'round. Play around, mix it up and then brush up on your Gangnam Style moves.    Seriously.
