Last year, in our post Guest Blogger: One Stop Shopwe interviewed Lauren’s sister-in-law Darci (who is a manager at Bloomingdale’s) to find out what the best things were to buy for the holidays. We loved collaborating with her to complete this post so much that we decided to do it again this year. We like to think we are fashion forward, but Darci takes being a “fashionista” to a whole new level. When she told us that she wanted to do her post this year on holiday fashion, we got excited to see what type of outfits she would come up with.


Darci came up with three different holiday looks, the first is something you could wear to a friend’s party (when you feel like being a little more dressed up). Darci paired this adorable navy blue peplum dress by Aqua with heels that will turn heads from Vera Wang’s Lavender line, a Diane Von Fursternberg clutch, and this glamorous necklace by Rebecca Minkoff  (she used to only design handbags, but has recently branched off with her own jewelry line and it’s doing really well). Darci says that navy is making a comeback, lace adds holiday glamour, and peplum is all the rage right now. In fact, Tami just bought a new peplum “LBD” for the holidays (also by Aqua) and can’t wait to wear it to an event this season.

This is the perfect look for a family gathering, a bit more casual but still in the holiday spirit. Darci paired this colorful leopard print top by Equipment with two tone black leggings from Marc by Marc Jacobs, a pair of black suede Via Spiga booties, an over-sized Kate Spade handbag (so you can bring all your presents with you), and a classic gold Michael Kors watch. Darci says that you can’t go wrong with leggings, and there are so many different options right now with all kinds of unexpected details (like leather!). We share a love for leggings as well as leopard print with Darci and are both desperately trying to add a little bit more color into our wardrobes right now. Thank you Darci for showing us just the right thing to wear for this year’s family Chanukkah parties.

This last look is our favorite! It is always important to find the right dress to wear for your annual work holiday party, and Darci did not disappoint. This fire engine red dress with sequin details is a knock-out by Reiss when paired with a matching clutch with chain handle detail by Tory Burch, a cute sparkly headband by Cara, and stunning heels from B by Brian Atwood. These nude patent leather super high heels are to die for and brand spanking new! A must have this season. Darci says that due to the high neck of the dress, the adorable collar, and the long sleeves, you can’t really wear too many accessories, so she pulled this headband instead of a necklace or festive earrings. Lauren is absolutely loving red right now and is trying to add more of it into her wardrobe, especially for the holidays. 
Thank you Darci for showing us and our readers three amazing must-have outfits for this holiday season. All items in this post can be found at Bloomingdale’s. Which means you know where to find us this Winter, either dressed up for an awesome party … or shopping with Darci (at Bloomingdale’s of course!).
