Holiday Outfit Styling

By mollie — November 27, 2012

A holiday outfit brought to you by Macy’s and a chance for you to win a $100 gift certificate

For a chance to win a $100 Macy’s gift card, you can vote for me as “best styled” by doing either or both of the following
1. Leave me a comment on this blog post
2. Tweet @Macys and @MollieinSeattle about this blog post with the hashtag #MyHolidayStyle

You can vote as many times as you like up until December 10, that’s when a winner will be selected.

Can you believe the holidays are here already? What you wear when you’re out celebrating the holidays, be it with friends or family is a reflection on your personality and unique style.

I’ve partnered with Macy’s to help you find the perfect, budget friendly, holiday outfit. When I’m shopping, er out seeking new investments for my closet…I’m always looking for pieces that I’ll be able to use multiple times. Things that will be practical to style various ways and enjoy as much as possible. In working with Macy’s on this, I was asked to select one piece of holiday attire that was under $100. I think you’d be amazed at all the things you can find that are under that dollar amount, you definitely don’t have to break the bank or max out your credit cards to feel beautiful and stylish for a fun celebration. I selected a dress because for me this time of year is extra special, and what better way to feel extra special than in a dress, right? The dress I selected is RACHEL Rachel Roy (regularly $99 but now on sale for just $69), something about the fabric and the metallic color really caught my eye. It reminded me of a Christmas ornament, you know when you see something and just connect with it? That was me and this dress.

I paired the dress with a pair of emerald earrings I’ve had for quite sometime now, a pair of B Brian Atwood heels and my pink clutch. Pink is my favorite color so I usually try and incorporate the color into most of my outfits as best I can. I really like dresses for special occasions not only because they’re feminine and elegant but they’re also just really easy to style. It’s one article of clothing that just needs some killer shoes and complimenting jewelry. Now for the really good stuff, want to learn how you can win a $100 gift certificate to Macy’s? Scroll down to the bottom of this post…

I’m participating in this holiday outfit styling contest with a few other bloggers, Fresh Jess, Alix Rose and Hey Pretty Thing. Whichever one of us receives the most votes on our holiday outfits gets to reward their readers with the $100 Macy’s gift certificate.

For a chance to win a $100 Macy’s gift card, you can vote for me as “best styled” by doing either or both of the following

    Love the dress and the spot of pink!

  49. December 10, 2012 at 7:37 am

    Hiya there Mollie! I just came across your blog but can't help but absolutely ADORE these photos. Let's start with that RACEL Rachel Roy dress. That shiny gold metallicness is so perfect for the holidays ahead while the elegant cut of the dress drapes over you perfectly. I love that elements of the dress combine to create something that's both classy and mature while also being youthful and fun. On top of the gorgeousness that is that dress is your lovely updo. Fabulous? I think so! Then, there's your fancy accessorizing. A hot pink clutch adds a nice little kick to offset the grown up fanciness of this dress while glamorous green earrings and simple heels make everything all the more holiday perfect. Lovely lovely lovely! <3 ~Alice Ainfinitaire
