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.

Flirty Holiday Look – Red on Red

Red on Red has been a fall trend this year and I have to say i’ve been dying to find the perfect shades to wear pair together.  What better time to be ultra festive in red than the holidays.  I love this look! It’s flirty, sporty, bold, sassy, don’t mess with me, don’t mess with my man and giving me some salsa vibes.

Best Affordable Holiday Look

Holiday parties and formals are in full swing now that December is here.  I’ve got the perfect look for your corporate holiday gathering or a night out on the town with your girlfriends or beau.  Think Bold…Bright…Striking, and it doesn’t have to be expensive.  This look was under $75.

Winter Styling, Dr. Melissa Gratias

I have so much fun pulling women out of their comfort zone.  I’m kind of quirky and my personal style ranges from bold business to festival chic.  It’s a hard balance not influencing my personal style onto someone else’s, but rather, introducing new thoughts and views of oneself. 

Emerald Ball, Dr. Keenya Mosley

It’s the holiday season and there are plenty of work gatherings, balls and ugly Christmas sweater parties to attend.  When Keenya called for a few of those events, she knew that she wanted to wear Emerald to the emerald ball.  However, I live in a small market and didn’t have a lot of time to do a thorough search for an evening gown. Living in a small city, it’s common that someone could be wearing the same dress as you.
