December means party season. Though it’s fun and festive, it can also be nerve racking because you never know what to wear. Some invites call for formal, while others are dressy casual or maybe it’s a cocktail affair. Either way, decoding party dress codes can be tough!
That’s why I stopped by Essence Live and hosted a segment on what to wear for any holiday party.

By now we all know {or at least I hope we do!} that not wearing white after Labor Day is a total fashion myth. You can wear any color you want during any time of the year. It’s really all about the material, not the color.

This week’s Thrifty Threads post is an ode to the girls who wear what they want, when they want, like this head to toe white look that features a mix of thrifted pieces and cheap chic department store finds.

Last week I had a blast hosting my first event at Macy’s Herald Square. I was introducing shoppers to Dormify, the college lifestyle brand that helps students dress up their living space with ease and on a budget. We had light bites, DIY stations, flash tattoos, a lipstick fortune teller {so awesome!} and me on the mic.

If you missed it, here’s a recap of the event, plus what I wore for my hosting duties.

I’m so excited to host a fun event at Macy’s Herald Square tomorrow {Tuesday, 7/28} It’s with a brand I know, love and I’m sure you’ll love it, too. If you’re in NYC, I hope you’ll join me.

Dormify, the online retailer for college room decor, is debuting their line at Macy’s. In addition to learning more about and shopping the Dormify collection {it’s specifically for the college crew, but trust me, the pieces are cute and functional for anyone!}, the evening will have DIY stations, music, light bites, flash tattoos and even a lipstick fortune teller.

But even affordable retailers offer this personalized service…and for free! If you need a bit of style advice tailored to your specific needs and even want someone to do a bit of shopping for you, check these stores out.
