If I was going to such a party, I'd pick up that gorgeous Shabby Apple dress and pair it with a pair of Seychelles heels (love, love, love) and the cutest polka-dot tights ever from Modcloth. The tights are a whopping $34 (not worth it when I rip tights quite easily) but See Kate Sew has an amazing DIY to make 'em on the cheap. I may or may not attempt it this weekend.
If you don't have the cash for a new dress-- get creative with what you have. Any dress gets new life with a new pair of tights-- polka-dotted or not-- and some bright-colored accessories, and of course, my go-to: red lipstick.
are you going to dressy holiday parties or bowling-themed parties like me?
