With the holidays, it's nice to be festive. It's not nice to feel like a stuffed sausage in your frock even before you've had a single canape. So when I saw this slouchy, stretchy velvet jumpsuit from Melissa McCarthy Seven7 I was psyched!  To keep it looking like festive wear and not loungewear I amped up the glamour with lots of mascara, a bold red lip, sparkly jewelry, and a heel.  This would also look great with a metallic or sparkly belt.

Nine West Jackpot Pumps in Pewter Glitter from NordstromWhen Nordstrom asked me to talk about shoes this holiday, I immediately thought pumps.  Pumps are the most versatile shoes – from work to play, trousers to jeans, and skirts of all lengths they work.  They're a shoe you can wear for all your holiday social events, but still find so wearable the rest of the year.  I have several Nine West pumps and find them the perfect blend of price, comfort, and style.  The ‘Jackpot' is a fave; 3.5″ slim heel, pointed toe to elongate the leg, and a single sole that is elegant and classic.  Nordstrom has this shoe in a wine colored patent and nude leather, but I fell for the pewter glitter option which looks like liquid metal.  It has enough shine to look festive, but after the holidays I can wear it with dark slim jeans or leather leggings and a blazer or crisp white shirt.

It has been a pleasure to work with Nordstrom this year.  It's by far my favorite place to shop thanks to their great selection, variety of sizes and prices, and fantastic customer service.  If you're still looking for a gift or holiday outfit, you can shop online and pick up same day at your local store; they also have a handy chart to show how late you can order to have it in time.

    I have the same style in jersey from ASOS and LOOOOOVE it. Feels like I’m in my PJs without looking like I am 🙂 As it’s summer here in Australia, I can still get away with wearing mine in the evening with nude wedges or chunky high heeled sandals and something sparkly around my neck. The velvet is gorgeous!

      It’s very similar to the Loveappella one I have that is short-sleeved. Such a brilliant design, nothing like wearing the equivalent of PJs out and about and looking stylish!

    That looks super comfortable. You definitely want to sharpen your acessory game for this to look it’s best. Love it. A structured blazer in white would be killer with this.

      Or a red sash type belt…

        Agree, this jumpsuit is super versatile. I have a wide metal belt from ASOS (http://bit.ly/2gsyR5e ) that looked super cool with it and a pair of strappy metallic heels. I also tried a gold chain belt. The velvet is thick, so it would be hard to style under some blazers, but there’s endless ways to style this for the holidays and beyond!
