A wish list is for wishes, right? Well, I wish for all things Parisian chic, and accents of gold, gold, gold. And who doesn't love coming up with fabulous holiday party outfits? Timeless and classy, these super-chic pieces will last forever, never failing to make me (or you!) the life of every holiday party.
I am absolutely head-over-heels for this strapless, leather-trimmed YSL jumpsuit. Notwithstanding the fact that I am an utter YSL fanatic, how fabulous is this? It's perfectly edgy, without being too over the top – leaving room for the most fabulous of accessories (the best part!).
Of course, I had to make the perfect outfit. And what better to pair the jumpsuit with than this deliciously dynamic Kenneth Jay Lane bib necklace? I can never get enough of showstopping statement jewelry. And this definitely does the job.
You can't rock a jumpsuit and necklace like the ones above without some seriously amazing shoes. Luckily, Giuseppe Zanotti designed the perfect, Swarovski-embellished pair of heels. With tights, or without, these are simply perfect. Holiday time requires gleam – these would make a delectable compliment to all of my shiny holiday pieces.
Did I mention that I love gold, and YSL? How faithful they are to me. I don't think I'd ever take this gorgeous cuff off.
A winter outfit's not an outfit without an amazing coat (one of my very favorite things). So to add to my already too-full closet, I'd love this structured wool coat from Alexander McQueen. Short and sassy, it's perfect for a cocktail party.
This is my wishlist…I hope you get everything on your list, too! Happy Holidays, lovely readers – and have a classy, gold, oh-so-Parisian-chic New Year!
