Holiday Party Outfit Guide

‘Tis the season for holiday parties! Not only does this give you a built-in excuse to load up on candy canes, it is also an opportunity to don your most festive frocks. Yet, if you’re decking the halls with the boss, just how festive can your outfit be? Nice is always acceptable, but let the party's venue guide the degree of naughtiness. Here are some ideas:

Daytime Office Shindig
If your office holiday party is during the day, start with your typical work uniform – slacks, a blouse, and a jacket or cardigan. Use a classic color palette of red or green to spread maximum corporate cheer.

The Luichiny MIND BLOWING pumps are perfect for the holiday season!

What to Wear on Thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving, you want your look to be dashing and able to accommodate a few extra helpings of pumpkin pie (just in case). You also want to ground your outfit with stellar footwear. Here are some tips on what to wear, based on the venue of your feast:

The night before Thanksgiving is ripe for partying. Over-the-knee boots are a sexy way to keep your gams warm. Paired with a simple black dress and sparkly accessories, you will stand out no matter where the night takes you!
The Luichiny BLAKE LEE boots are H-O-T.
At a traditional Thanksgiving meal at home with the family, your look requires equal servings of fun and functionality - especially if you're responsible for serving the meal. A patterned poncho and slim leggings provide comfort and camouflage after too many slices of pie. Fringe booties will keep that swing in your step as you march back and forth from the kitchen.
The Diba True I CONIC booties are in a class by themselves.
As delicious as home-cooked turkey is in theory, time-strapped or oven-challenged families might prefer to get stuffed at a fancy restaurant. For more formal Thanksgiving dinners, try a mashed-potato-friendly (read: non-cinched waist) dress paired with sleek booties and statement jewelry. Cranberry hues give your outfit a festive flavor.
The Luichiny GET FUNKY booties are versatile and sophisticated.
If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving sans kids or family, you can go a little more casual with your outfit. Since uninhibited gobbling while watching (or pretending to watch) football is most likely acceptable to your crew, you'll score a style touchdown in a cool, couch-approved outfit. Glam up a plaid shirt and jeans with a faux fur vest and shiny earrings.
Diba True's RADIO CHECK boots keep you comfortable and chic.
We are so thankful to have you as a reader, and wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Halloween!

Just because it's fall, you don't have to restrict your wardrobe to dark colors. Try a bold, look-at-me hue on your feet this season. Keep the rest of your look toned down for maximum impact.


Summer Trends

Summer's still going strong, and it's not too late to stay on-trend! Here are ideas on how to wear some of the hottest trends this season:

Trend: Florals
Floral prints never truly go out of style, but they are the quintessential summer pattern. Paired with sparkly flat sandals, a floral maxidress is chic and sweet.

Trend: 1970s Boho
Bohemian styles mixed with 70s flair is a surefire way to sizzle this summer. Chunky platform sandals are perfect for showing off long bellbottom jeans. Don't forget the floppy hat to shield you from the sun.

Trend: Overalls
Dungarees are cool and comfortable. Worn with a simple white tee, tribal-print sneakers, and fun accessories, you're ready to beat the heat.

Trend: Shirtdress
There are few garments more versatile than a shirtdress. Depending on your accents, a shirtdress can look sophisticated enough for the office or casual enough for happy hour. Pretty white sandals are perfect for day-to-night.

Father's Day Gift Guide

Father's Day is coming up, and shopping for Dad can be difficult, especially when he already seems to have "everything." Don't fret: here are some fresh ideas from Uncommon Goods on what to buy beloved dads for Father's Day.

Does Dad like spicy foods? He will get a kick out of this sizzling DIY hot sauce kit! It provides all the ingredients he'll need to whip up some special sauce, like cayenne pepper, bottles, and a small funnel. Whether he's a novice or a seasoned chef, making scorching sauce to add to tacos or eggs is a fun project for the whole family.

If this is your beloved's first Father's Day, he's probably still trying to get the hang of this being-a-father-to-a-cute-but-crying-baby thing. Help him out with this clever, tongue-in-cheek magnetic flowchart. The step-by-step instructions come in handy when Dad feels clueless or just needs a laugh.

Let's be honest: some men are terrible at locating their keys, iPhones, remote controls, wallets, etc. If that sounds like your father or partner, he needs a nifty Bluetooth Tracking Tag that he can attach to frequently lost object for easy finding. This is actually a gift for you, too, if you're the designated receiver of those frantic "Honey, where are my keys?" comments 10 seconds before you've got to leave. Just note that these tags are only for iPhone peeps (sorry, Android users).

When you're surrounded by stuffed animals, diapers, and nursery rhymes, intellectual stimulation may be just what Dad needs. A group of fun, challenging brain-teaser puzzles give him a chance to work with his hands and hone those logic skills.
Yes, we know that coffee mugs are probably one of the most over-given Father's Day gifts (rivaled only by neckties). But, there is a reason for that: they are easy and universally useful regardless of age. If you're going to get a mug, we suggest that you get a really cool one, like this awesome sports-themed cup that encourages playing with your food. The best part? These oversize mugs work for ice cream, soup, and drinks.
