Getting Glam: Our Favorite Party Dresses and Tips

We love any excuse to glam it up and this time of year calls for plenty of party-ready options! When picking out a perfect holiday party dress, there are a few things to keep in mind:

Make Sure It's As Functional As It Is Cute

Try sitting down in the dress in the dressing room to make sure it's not too short or pinches in spots. (I.E. That cute sequin number that called revenge on your underarm) 

Be Realistic & Keep Comfort In Mind

Set yourself up for success whether you are rockin'a'round a christmas tree or counting down to the new year. Ladies--make sure your outerwear and shoes can keep up. Keep your heels at a 2-3" maximum or opt for a wedge or higher vamp. If you have a sleek new pair break them in BEFORE the big night and consider packing along a back-up pair of flats for the evening. Same goes for jackets- keep a scarf or wrap in your coat pocket or tied inside your sleeves and utilize coat check.

Add Instant Glam With Sparkle

This is the one time of year where you can really go all for it with some sparkle and shine. If sequins is not your style and you prefer a LBD, play up your jewelry with a statement necklace, glitter clutch or oversized chandelier earrings.

We have to say- laptop bags have come a long way in recent years. Here are our top picks for modern computer bags that won't break the bank. We focused on backpacks, since they are very on-trend right not. But don't worry, we threw in a few shoulder bags as well!
