I was running out of time to write my Christmas Party Outfit post

So without further adieu…

What I’ve seen this Christmas for parties!


Karen Sequin Dress

The Sequin was everywhere this Christmas.

The sparkle of new years has come early and has sprouted in December.

This fit of dress has been very popular for Christmas Parties as well. It is a very cheeky type of dress that is perfect for the big night out on the town, or that girl’s night downtown. You don’t want to be lost in the crowd, and this dress will ensure that you won’t be!

If this dress is a little to formal or extravagant for your party plans. A very cute idea is:



I adore this outfit from @shikshin on Instagram

So happy she used my hashtag #dailygrindlook !

This outfit is a perfect holiday look for those Christmas get-togethers with family and friends. Completely cute and festive!

Red, White, and …Metallic?

Most people will play it safe and wear black for those holiday parties. Even I did for one of my parties…but I figured the amazing cut would make up for it.

But be bold ladies in these colours that you cannot go wrong with!

4. This is the time to bring out that Red dress you never have anywhere to wear. Smile and shine ladies cause your wearing your flirty dress!

6. Black and white with lace is such a classy look for a Christmas Party when you want to portray a successful sexy woman.

7. Lastly metallic is perfect for the young and playful. The party will revolve around you in this “shiny disco ball” dress.

What I wore


I went metallic for my Christmas Dress.

It is a French Connection fitted long sleeve dress; classy enough for a Christmas Staff Party. But it also fun with the metallic shimmer. I paired it with a low hanging metallic necklace to accentuate the shimmer of the dress.

Dressing for work and night life part 2

I find a certain style lends itself to both work and night life more than any other.

That is a Classy-Edgy style.


This “professional-sexy to the max” outfit is from the bebe collection!

The pencil skirt and high top shirt is a professional fit yet the form fitted-ness and the material of the top is definitely night-life worthy.

But if the above style isn’t for you.

Changing an outfit from work to night is as easy as changing the styling of an outfit.

Such as how you wear your hair and the accessories you use.

I would be much more willing to stay in this French Connection dress with styling 2 compared to styling 1.

The second has a sharper feeling: with the Rhianna inspired hairstyle (braid on one side and curls on the other) and the pointed high heel…

The first feels softer: with the chunky shoe, flowing curls, and pearl necklace.


Changing an outfit from day to night is as simple as changing your accessories.

Changing your shoe from your work flats to those 4 Inch stilettos that sit prettily in your closet begging to be paraded about during celebratory occasions.

Or changing your jewellery…  switching from a pearl necklace to a spike heavy metal inspired necklace.

**Changing from soft to hard seems to be a trend in this post**

These two necklaces represent two sides of myself it seems.

I dress classy, soft and pretty at work. But during the weekends I dress more edgy.

What are your two styles for work wear and weekend wear?

Dressing for both work and night life part 1

There just seems to never be enough hours in the day. I remember hearing adults saying this when I was young and thinking it was just a saying adults said like “good weathering we’re having huh?” But now that I’m older…eek. I actually see what the big fuss is about. I do not know what I did with my time before, and I cannot even fathom adding children’s needs into the mix. Working mothers are seriously super heros…I’m taking a moment to say PROPS!

But when we finally take a moment for ourselves and go on a date, go out with friends, or step out into the night life. We don’t always have time to return home to switch outfits. So here is a few tips to dress for both Work and whatever  you spend your afterhours doing.

Tip 1: Colour!

Be Bold my Beauties…Be Bold!

 The style techniques I used to make this outfit more work appropriate are the high sock bun, the high wasited-knee length skirt, and the target bag. But the stars wars tee and colourful nature of this outfit are definitely fun enough for after work as well. I would feel comfortably dressed at work and out with girl friends in this outfit.

Orange seems to be my go-to colour for transitioning from work to night life. This orange skirt with the green jacket is so fabulous and fun, it can easily transition from work to girl friend adventures after work. Also the green jacket can easily come off to say come hither to the fellas across the way! 😉

Tip 2: Blazers

Blazers are your new best friend ladies…stock up with a tonne of variety!

It is as easy as adding a blazer to your night life outfit.

I wore this form-fitting dress out on a date with my man. If I can make my boyfriend say “damn” when I step out of the dressing-room than I know the dress is a “got-to-have-it” piece! But when you feel that great in a dress you also want to wear it everywhere else. So I paired with a longer jacket and pulled it all together with a brown chunky belt.

Another very trendy night life outfit today incorporates the bodice. If you are a curvy girl like me, the bodice can be overtly sexy. And overtly sexy at the office is just a big….uh no! But for you other ladies, the bodice is perfection. It can accentuate your curves and up the sexiness to any outfit. And out on a date or enjoying the night life at the clubs that’s what you want….that turn heads kind of sexy.

That is what I love about the blazer tip.

Blazer on: you look professional. But Blazer off: you unleash the party-animal within.

I hope these tips help you save time and dress for the entire day!
