OOTW: True Blue

Jesse L. Brooks

 

In a 'normal' world, we would be pre-planning our holiday party looks. Since we're still living in COVID times, parties feel like a thing of the past. While we know our old lives will eventually get back on track, we can fantasize about what could have been. 

Even though we don't recommend hitting the town to celebrate any time soon, we always support an excuse to dress up and snap some photos at home!

Finding the perfect cocktail dress can be no easy feat, especially in the fall and winter months. In elegant cornflower blue, this longsleeved mini dress from Zimmermann is made with romance and dancing in mind. Cut from fluid silk satin with asymmetrical ruffles, it has a beautiful drape and looks best when in motion. The Blouson sleeves and a wrap-tie waist lend a fun and flirtatious finishing touch. 

There's no better excuse (like we even need one) to amp up the sparkle than during the holiday season, especially when that comes to livening up your footwear. These 'Heaven' stiletto pumps from Aquazzura are constructed with transparent uppers to create a barely-there effect. Embellished with dazzling crystals, they have a point-toe silhouette with buckled slingback straps. There's a slight Cinderella vibe to these beauties, which make them all the more magical. 

We kept the shimmer strong with the rest of our accessories, including this leather rainbow clutch by Ming Ray and a Nakard mini tile opal tennis bracelet. Nothing polishes off a party look more than a little eye glitz. This automatic retractable pencil by Sisley-Paris is created with an integrated sharpener featuring a creamy and firm tip that offers a unique glide and ensures perfect definition with extreme precision. The starry blue shade we chose will add an instant 'pop' to the eyes. 

Even though we don't recommend hitting the town to celebrate any time soon, we always support an excuse to dress up and snap some photos at home, and in this 'True Blue' look, you'll be the belle of your very own ball!
