Insomniac Sale Picks: Holiday Party Clothes

*In this new late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Katie requested a few picks for fabulous holiday party clothes, so here we go:

MICHAEL Michael Kors Sequin Rib Dress – was $150, now $112.99

Katie is actually looking specifically for some New Year’s Eve wear, and who doesn’t love a sparkly dress for New Year’s? This one is particularly fabulous because of its warm, bronze-y brown color and long sleeves. It appears to have a fairly short hem, but paired with stockings or tights, it should work beautifully. (Negative review appears to be of the beige/gold version, which I agree might look a bit weird in real life.)

ASOS wide-leg velvet pants, were $81.81, now $57.27

If you’re looking to make a dramatic statement that DOESN’T involve a dress, these eye-catching, exaggerated wide-leg pants will do the trick. They’ll keep your legs cozy while exuding a quirky elegance. I love them paired with maroon as in the product shot, but they’d also look fab with warm browns, reddish purples, warm pastels, winter white, burgundy, some pinks, cognac leather, and gold.

Suzette blouse in nightfall floral, was $138, now $99.99
Plus free shipping with code JINGLE

I am mad for this print. I’m also lusting after the matching skirt and bow pumps, though that might be matchy overkill, even for me. This silk, bow-neck blouse is a marvelous party choice because it includes both black and bold colors. Grab a pink skirt if you’re feeling sassy, or pull in classic black for a more subdued look.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for fabulous holiday party clothes:

  1. IGIGI – My favorite for plus-sized frocks. Their evening and cocktail offerings are top-notch!
  2. ModCloth – No matter if you’re looking for glam, avant garde, or retro, ModCloth has a fun frock for ya. Hemlines tend to be short, so beware.
  3. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! I know it might seem daunting to scour used duds for holiday duds, but formal and fancy items are among the most frequently donated. Sequins, velvet, silk, faux fur, and all the most party-appropriate materials abound. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)

    Love the velvet pants but does that model ever eat?? Sheesh!

  • Katie

    Thanks Sal! These are fabulous–I was absolutely all in for sparkles but now I’m loving the idea of velvet! (Perhaps both!)

  • I want those velvet pants like nobody’s business. Sigh.

  • Bronze is so my favorite metallic!

  • oh my goodness, you totally reminded me how badly I wanted these velvet pants after seeing this editorial:

    I caved. Or rather, my husband, late to the Christmas present game this year, did (even better!) 😉 Now, I just hope they fit and are long enough!
