Christmas Party Time!

What should I wear to a Christmas party? It will be kind of dressy, but kind of not. Should you paint nails red and wear red lip stick, or is that overkill? Also, are "Christmas sweaters and earrings and stuff" dorky or OK?

Thanks a bunch,


With this letter in mind, my topic is "What to wear to a Christmas Party", pretty slick topic huh! Well, I think that the red nails is a cute idea. I usually add some green to mine. Girls I know do lots of stuff to their nails in red and green for the holidays. I'd hold off on the red lipstick, it might be just a little too much.

The Christmas sweater, earrings, and socks, etc. ideas are really cute. I am sure you won't be the only person wearing that kind of thing. Since it IS a Christmas party. If you feel cool in it, than it is cool. If you want to make sure you aren't alone, just to be sure, call a friend who's going and have her wear a festive sweater and stuff too!

I think it's cool. If anyone doesn't feel okay in all that kinda deal, a red or green or combo sweater is cute too. This would work wonderfully with black pants, or my fav. khakis. Have you noticed that I really like khakis? I wear them a lot when I need to dress up and look good.

The cutest touches to your outfit is red and green ribbons or just the kind you use for wrapping in your hair. Most places, even K-Mart and stuff have cheap Christmas earrings.

If you don't want to wear the red and green shirt, cause you feel like a big nerd, or you think it's cheesy, just wear something dressy that you would wear to a concert. For example, maybe some dress pants and a nice sweater. For shoes, you would probably want to go with some dress shoes no matter what you wear. Or some nice Dr. Martins. I wear my docs with a lot of dressy things. If it's not really dressy, then I just wear them, they look nice too. Thanks for the question, and if anyone else has any questions, PLEASE send them in. I'd love to help you out!
