Holiday Pleats

With Christmas only a couple of days away and with New Years Eve following shortly after, I’ve got festive cocktail dresses on the brain. These two pleated pretties caught my eye for both occasions. Both have trendy pleated skirts, but one is made out of a posh, festive velvet and the other has just the right amount of holiday sparkle.

Both of these dresses are from Topshop, so they have a good mid range price point. Unfortunately the velvet dress is sold out, but the good news is that the second sparkly number is still in stockand it’s on sale right now for 50% off, making the price tag under $100. If you’re really in a pinch to get it by Christmas, Nordstrom is currently running priority shipping for just $10.

It’s important to note that this dress is navy blue, not black. It could be paired with black accessories, but I decided to go with a pair of metallic caged pumps. What I love about these shoes is that they are not really gold, but not really silver either. They are listed as “gilver” which makes them the perfect thing to go with anything metallic. And, if that wasn’t already awesome enough, these babies are also on sale right now for just $30. As always, they are linked up down below for you guys to shop along with the rest of the look. Merry Christmas!
