12 Days of So Fabulously Sweet : Day 1 : What to Wear : Tacky Sweater Party

“The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.”  ~W. M. Lewis
Hey sweetie pies! Now if you are a true sweetie pie of mine then you probably noticed that I did not post on Wednesday or Friday of this week. Well I can explain myself. I have purposely not posted anything because.... I am doing a special series on my blog called 12 Days of So Fabulously Sweet where I will do a blog post (wait for it....) Every Day up til Christmas Eve!!!! *THROWS CONFETTI* I will be sharing everything related to the holidays such as gift guides, to dos, outfit inspirations, and more! Don't worry I will still post the occasional OOTD. :) I will be sharing some of the things that I am doing for the holiday season on here as well as all of my other social medias so make sure you keep a look out! I absolutely love EVERYTHING about the holiday season and I figured why not share the fun with you all?!

So for day 1 I figured I would share what to wear for an Ugly Sweater or Tacky Sweater Party. Now for some people this can be dreadful considering that tacky Christmas sweaters can be downright well, TACKY! 

No need to fear because I am going to share three outfit ideas to glam up your look and have a little fun with the dreaded tacky Christmas sweater. These looks will totally have you re-thinking what to wear to a tacky sweater party!

This first outfit, I opted for a solid bright skirt but left the entire outfit in one neutral color. This helps to bring the entire look together and keeps the look from becoming too busy. I also played with different textures (which I am loving right now) such as knit, leather and suede. I love this look it's fun, flirty and feminine with a touch of edgy.

Tacky Sweater Outfit

With the second outfit, it is all about proportions. So opt for an oversized sweater, or just buy out of the men's section and pair with skinny jeans. To add a sexy flair to this look, I opted for this knee high boots with a fedora to add an easy laid back feel to the look. Since it is the holidays, sparkles are a must! These earrings and bracelet are a new addition to my boutique and I am in LOVE! These two pieces add just the right amount of sparkle! And of course an envelope clutch to hold your party essentials. Is the cold weather brutal? Try tossing a cocoon coat such as this one in a bright color over your shoulders. There's just something so cool and sophisticated about a coat draped over the shoulders.

Ok so the idea of a tacky sweater is really cramping your glamorous style? Well here's an option to consider, try a more fitted sweater or maybe even one in the same color as everything else that you're wearing for a monochromatic look. This look is a great mix of playing with proportions as well as textures with a pop of color. Throw on your slightly fitted sweater over a sequined dress with sexy patterned tights and pumps. To add more glam or become a full Glamazon as I call it, throw on a faux fur coat with statement earrings. You can also add a bold red lip with minimal makeup to keep your outfit the focal point. Now I know this look is a little over the top but it's the holidays! I am a sucker for any and everything FABULOUS! (But yall already knew that. ;)

Which look best suites your style? 1, 2, or 3? Leave me a comment below!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

One trend that I have been obsessing over lately is the straw bag. You have probably seen this trend on your IG feed or through Pinterest. At first sight, I didn't think I would like this trend. The idea of straw itself made me itch lolz. But this once frumpy and overlooked handbag has been upgraded and I don't hate it! Whether you are in need of a crossbody or an evening bag, there are stylish straw options. Check out my top suggestions below!

I did a bit of searching and these are the ones that stood out to me the most. I l…
