Velvet Holiday

You may be surprised that one of the best (and most underrated places) to shop for holiday apparel is boutiques! I find that lots of holiday apparel sold at popular, widely known retailers can be sooo overpriced, whereas boutique apparel is typically under $100. The hardest thing to find at popular retailers are reasonably priced cocktail dresses for the holidays – I rarely find anything good for less than $200! Mint Julep Boutique (sign up for their newsletter and get $10 off your purchase!) is a great example of a boutique that sells trendy holiday apparel that won't break the bank. For this post, I am wearing two Mint Julep pieces that would be great for a holiday party – this velvet floral dress and pair of pumps (that are surprisingly comfortable given their height!). I paired the heels with these shimmery socks, which I think add a unique element to the outfit and are a trend I've been loving lately. Unfortunately, Christmas is coming up in the next couple of days, but it's not too late to shop for New Years Eve apparel!
