All That Glitters For The Holidays

The holiday invites are starting to come in. The parties, the dinners, the events, and the get-togethers. It’s only the beginning of November, I know! But hey, you’ve got to be ready! Now is the time to take inventory of your closet and sort out if there’s anything you need to update  OR determine if you need anything new.

At the recent GUESS event held at the Spoke Club in Toronto, we were reminded of Holiday offerings as well as what’s coming up for Spring — yes, my dangling carrots to get me through the inevitable dreaded Canadian winter.

It’s mysterious, looks good on everyone, and it can easily be updated with a bold accessory or this season’s popular fur (or faux fur) collars.

But don’t overlook the strong gold and ivory colours this season. Or toss in a bit of colour – if “red red” is to0 “red” for you, then turn to a richer and deeper oxblood red. Then grab a few pairs of booties, and the right clutch bag and get your party on!

Here are my top favourite looks from the Guess Collection for this holiday season. I even  sometimes want a hint of sequins and glitter during the day. Yes, it’s that time of year!

After all, who needs to wait for the night time?  Shine on!


I’ll be giving you a sneak peek at spring in another post including the latest collection THE ORIGINALS by GUESS.
