Dressing to Express
Shyla: A little goes a long way is indeed our motto for family and business occasions. Our motto is slightly different for a nighttime rendezvous with your girlfriends and friend’s holiday parties.
Lena: Absolutely, for fiestas with friends, you can let a little or a lot more hang out ‘cause there ‘aint no in-laws to impress!
Shyla: Truly, quite the opposite; you just have inebriated, horny admirers to impress. If you feel like splurging, my favorite dress designer is Betsy Johnson. I love browsing her store and site for adorable styles that will easily take you through New Year’s Eve and beyond.
Lena: I adore Betsy’s bright candy-colored hues and unique patterns.
Shyla: I always put more deliberation and care into outfits when I am dressing it up with my buds. I would rather splurge on a sexy dress for New Year’s Eve than a sweater to look respectable for granny on Christmas Eve, but that’s just me.
Lena: I agree, partying and nights out on the town are when I attempt to look my very best. I love pretty cocktail dresses in jewel-toned colors for friend’s cocktail holiday parties, like this Nicole Miller dress in the ideal, effervescent green.
Shyla: I love green. Green makes you (and others) horny. Did you know that? And of course, green is the new black. That dress is incredible, but dude, quite a bit on the pricey side. I guess it’s crucial to splurge on outstanding pieces.
Lena: You are such a hussy. This Mark Jacobs dress is a shimmery dream of plaid loveliness, and is anything but Spartan. I would bathe in plaid if it made me look this good.
Shyla: I would rather bathe with Jude Law; you can take your plaid. That dress is gorgeous though. You know what I love and always gravitate to in stores? Wrap dresses.
Lena: Oooh, wrap dresses look fabulous on everyone. They are totally transitional from day to night and they flatter most body types beautifully.
Shyla: I have a stunning wrap dress from Zara. I remember one night when I wore it out and some guy came up to me and said, “Dude, that dress is gnarly!”
Lena: I didn’t know people used that word after 1985.
Shyla: Apparently, they do. You can match this tasteful dress by Design History with just about anything.
Lena: I’m imagining this dress paired up with some gold earrings like these sexy danglies by Janna Conner Beni. They won’t burn holes in your Citizens either.
Whether dressing for your new flame’s parents, your Office Space-inspired office party, or glamming your sexy self up in cocktail dresses for a holiday bash, remember a few things: let your individuality shine through your clothes and allow your clothes to illustrate your personality. Biggie: Aim to shine in your clothes, not hide. If you are dressing to win over your future husband’s relatives, or that Clive Owen look-a-like you’ve had your eye on for months, remember it’s you who has to sport it; it’s you who has to be comfortable in it; and it’s you that you want Clive to remember, not just your clothes.
Well enough talking … lets go shopping!
