Part 2: Holiday Party Inspiration

We're back with round 2 of winter inspiration! This time we've focused on what seems to be on everyone's mind (and happening every evening!): holiday parties. Below Brittany has continued with a hair tutorial and I've styled a great holiday dress from Harper Boutique to get your creative wardrobe ideas flowing!

Divide the section of hair that was left down into three parts: left, right and back. Take the left section, roll it up and under the original top roll from the previous style. Repeat that on the right.

Now take the last section left down and roll it up and under. Secure with bobby pins and hair spray.

I love this black dress from Harper. It has just the right balance of details with a classic look.

This peep cut out with lace overlay really drew me into this dress. And of course I love adding a cocktail ring to the look.

I'm not a fan of too much sparkle, but these shoes were a must with this black dress. Just a little understated gold sparkle to go with a classic black dress. A winning combination!
