Thursday Moda #42: Who What Wear for the Holidays.

Happy Thursday. Today, like the past two Thursday Moda days, I am featuring another Holiday look and I wore this one to one of my job's Holiday parties, just two days ago. I have expressed my love for "Who What Wear" and I did just that last week, too, where I featured the same Velvet Accessories as today: Bow Block Sandals and Box Clutch with my Black Leather Top Dress. Today, I am in a head to toe Outfit from "Who What Wear" minus the jewelry. I hope you like it.

This Faux Wrap Dress just arrived in the mail and literally a day later my mid-length Puffer Coat arrived too. I was so eager to get the coat in particular especially with our frozen temps as of late (as you can see from some of the photos). It is pretty thick, well-insulated, beautifully chic, modern, casual yet dressy and in one of my favorite neutrals - olive green. When I paired it with my LBD - which is threaded with metallic gold all over it - the coat made the entire look even more chic and monochromatic. I love the little fur shrug over the dress, adds more holiday glow to the entire outfit. Between the metallic dress, velvet accessories, fur piece and all the crystals, there is a lot of texture in this look. =) The Jewel-Toned Velvet Accessories pop as does the Gorgeous Crystal Necklace from my latest Rocksbox which matched the Silvery Crystal and Plum Stone Statement Earrings and my little Crystal Hair Barrette, perfectly.

Last week there were close to 100 looks linked and some of them were perfect for the holidays. Today my featured blogger did just that in a special post. She showed us three gorgeous holiday looks. Stay tuned tomorrow for more featured bloggers, since I am running a headache now... sorry.
Today's Featured Blogger is MELISSA from Mom with Style and the name of the blog totally suits her, especially with this Holiday Post she linked up. She covers several holiday events and shows us what to wear to three different occasions. Tuxedo blazers, sequins, cape sleeves, dresses, plaid, jewel tones, clutches and beautiful pumps are all things I'd wear to my holiday parties, too. I think the outfit with the sequined mini is my favorite. Melissa is a mom whose blogs focuses on fashion, beauty and shopping. Usually on Fridays she has her style posts on a weekly linkup she contributes along two other mommy bloggers, every Friday. Melissa is petite and always puts together fun sexy looks that are appropriate for a mom. Make sure you check her blog out!
