what to wear: holiday party style

sequin dress // clutch // heels // cuff // velvet dress 
^^^ each of the above items are under $100, too! ^^^

whether you have a work event, family get-together, or holiday party
with friends, deciding what to wear can be troublesome (perhaps you're 
like me and try on every dress in your closet beforehand?). 

feeling comfortable, while also looking nice, yet festive can be a balancing act;
you may want to add a bit more flair to your everyday dress. where do you begin? 
a few of my favorites this season? 
sequins, velvet, faux fur, and accessories galore! 
party season has begun, and i am already brainstorming outfit ideas!
this year, i have three work-related parties to attend and
two family gatherings that will take place in the coming weeks. 
as much as i would love to have a separate dress
for each occasion, that simply isn't practical. 
i am hoping to use this black velvet dress (exact here) as my 'basic'
and build additional outfits by swapping out my faux fur jacket
and other accessories (a blazer, oversized sweater, and sequined bomber
jacket could also be paired with this dress - to name a few).

dress: zara (exact here), clutch: forever 21 (similar here),
heels: nordstrom (similar here), ring: nordstrom, cuff: c/o rebekah j designs,
jacket: nordstrom (last season; similar here)

i am also lusting after this dress and this skirt from zara (both of which
are budget-friendly!).
though busy, i just can't get enough of the holiday decorations
and activities this year! do you have several parties to attend? what
are you planning to wear?
xoxo.
