Holiday Styling- ILA Ball

This was the second holiday event styling Keenya.  The first look was a festive holiday green dress. So for the ILA Ball, we had to do something completely different, but how? She was already bold and a stand out in the last number.  I knew we could not do red for this particular event because everyone (300+ women) would’ve flocked to red.  The only choice was to be loud. What better way to do that than dripping in GOLD.

Holiday Formal – less than $100

As much as I love watching Parks and Recreation and The Office on repeat, I equally love dressing up…like formally.  Holiday formals are a great escape from my Office (self inflicted) prison.

The trick to a great gown is knowing what shape flatters your figure.  I personally love trumpet and mermaid silhouettes because they enhance my petite figure.  Actually, those silhouettes create curves 😏 and I love putting my clients in mermaid, column and sheath silhouettes for enhancing and/or slimming the figure.

With it being the holidays, everyone flocks towards reds, greens and glitter. While great colors, everyone is wearing them.  I chose this stunning dark fuchsia gown and paired it with minimal accessories and a matching rose gold/plum make up look and wore shoes already in my collection.
