Hey, Beauties! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! It has been a miiiinute since I have posted a Fashion post so I am really excited about this one. I am teaming up with Forever 21 to bring you two Holiday Party Chic looks you are sure to love! If you have been following along for a while (especially on my LikeToKnow.it @nickyschmaderer_fit) I am sure you have realized by now that I love Forever 21! The price point is great and their selection is beyyyyyond. Yes, I do get a headache too when I shop in store (so. many. racks) but shopping online for my Forever finds is where it’s at.
This color is everything. I love how it has long sleeves but adds such a sexy, feminine touch with the leg slit and plunging neckline. I like to be modest…to an extent ;). I will be the first one to say that I love to feel sexy. There is just something about putting on an outfit and knowing you look like a dime-piece in it. I always want to “date” my husband and feel like I look good for him. Now don’t get me wrong ladies, we don’t HAVE to do this…our men should love us as a hot-mess, too! But I strongly believe you should still care about appearance around each other, especially when you go out and enjoy a date night. You gotta’ keep the fire burning as my Mamita would say. Plus, Brody sees the hair-up, no makeup, sweat pants Nicky way too often so when I get dressed up I go. for. iiiit.
Sock booties have been my go-to this past Fall and Winter. I own about 3 pairs now, I cannot get enough! The ones I am wearing are from Lulu’s and you can find them HERE. Below are similar options with different price points.
Cannot get over this emerald velvet!! All the heart eyes! I paired it with a fringe cropped cardigan that I have linked below also. The dress sold out before I was able to get this post done, but above are other Forever 21 velvet dresses I think are so cute, too! What I love most about Holiday Party looks is that they can be paired with or without tights and you can get two completely different looks. For these looks, I decided to go sans-tights but I will definitely do another post with some fun tights.
Back to my thoughts on Forever 21! Like I said above, Forever is great if you are looking for something quick and trendy to wear to an event, but I will be honest and say they are definitely not investment pieces. The quality is average (if not poor at times) and you can usually only get a few wears out of an item before its shrunken or faded. As for me, If I know I am only going to wear a certain look or trend a few times anyway, I would rather do so for cheap!
So here’s to rocking those Holiday parties, Ladies! Below I have linked some more pieces from Forever 21 that will be sure to get you glowin’ for the night!
