Party Perfect Neckwear (& 30 for 30 Day 13)

OK, ladies, party season officially snuck up on me. And after all the dresses I bought for all of my wedding events, I am not planning on investing in any new partywear this season. But how boring is it to wear the same LBD over and over? Lame. I've been looking for an affordable way to dress up what I already have for the season. Enter Festive Neckwear! These pieces make it easy to add a lttle luxe to a plain jane ensemble. Just throw one of these babies around your neck and you are ready to party. (I'm thinking I need the LOFT sequin Skinny scarf to wear with jeans and the Forever 21 (32?) feather collar to fancy up my party dress.) Lovely!

And here is Lucky Number 13 on our 30 for 30 journey. You really can't go wrong with a classic black shift dress. Add some buttery tan leather accessories, a couple pops of turquoise and you are good to go. One of these pics is not like the others...10 points for whoever can spot the oddball.

I love this color combination! I think it's the smallest details in this outfit that pull it together so effortlessly -- the earrings, the belt and the buttons on your sweater. It's gorgeous! :)
