And I’m not sure if you are aware, but that means that tomorrow is November 1st.
I’m going to give you a minute to let the gravity of that set in.
Because after that, you’ll turn around and it will be Thanksgiving.
And before you know it, you’ll look up and it will be Christmas.
Somebody hand me a paper bag.
I need to regulate my breathing.
So, when Nordstrom asked me if I would post about Holiday Denim, at first I had to pick myself up off the floor BECAUSE OH MY SWEET WORD IT’S ALREADY HOLIDAY TIME.
Then I was confused.
What did HOLIDAY DENIM mean?
Were there jeans that Nordstrom carried that had Rudolph’s face appliqued on the pockets or something? I wasn’t sure if I could get on board with that.
Luckily, it was explained to me that “Holiday Denim” simply meant a post about how I personally plan on wearing denim during the holidays.
Now THAT I can do.
I mean, I pretty much wear denim 98% of my life anyways, and the holidays are no different.
So, I have a 2 part series coming your way about Holiday Denim (designer denim specifically). Don’t worry, no Santa faces or random jingle bells up in here, just regular ol’ denim!
So, today is Holiday Denim Part 1.
And I’ve decided to show you how you can wear denim to a holiday party.
A party that is a little fancy, but not full blown fancy. More like a sassy holiday party.
Am I making sense at all?
You know, a party where you don’t need to wear a dress…
but you still want to feel dressed up and special!
So, today I paired my AG jeans (my first pair of designer denim) with a black lace top, cage heels, and sparkly jewelry!
Because when you put lace, blingy jewelry, and more dramatic make-up on, you are going to elevate your look to one worthy of showing off at a HOLIDAY PARTY!
I loved how it all came together!
In my mind, when you pair designer jeans that fit perfectly with a fancy blouse and some sexy high heels, you’ve got party gold.
(In case you’re not familiar with the term, PARTY GOLD is when you look and
feel fabulous at a party. Yes, I just made that up.)
This blouse + Designer Jeans + Sexy Heels = PARTY GOLD
This blouse is something special and something like it is necessary for a successful PARTY GOLD equation.
Look at the pleated detailing down the center of the shirt.
AND LOOK AT THESE LACE SLEEVES!
Click HERE for the blouse.
And just to be clear, for me, PARTY GOLD also includes vodka and cranberry juice.
This fab top also comes in cream HERE, and it’s gorgeous in cream!
Actually, seeing it here, I might like the cream better.
It would look great with jeans, but imagine how amazing it would look with skinny leg tuxedo pants (click HERE) or a pencil skirt (click HERE).
Remember, size up in the top because it is quite narrow through the chest!
I got the medium (and it says the medium is an 8-10).
Here’s another close up of just the jewelry. I’m sooo sad that the earrings already sold out because I just got them last week and loved how sparkly they were.
I did find a similar pair that I’ve linked to below.
The bracelets are full stocked, perfect for stacking, and really glam up an outfit! (But I also love wearing super sparkly stuff like this with just jeans and a tee!)

Evening make-up also helps with the whole “fancy up” goal.
I’ve been told that THIS is the best shade for a perfect red lip (I’ve never done a true red lip before, but I need to!) and you know I love THIS gloss (it is perfectly shimmery and makes every lipstick you own shinier and prettier). It’s $26, but totally worth it in my book.

I also like MAC Viva Glam VI (it’s a great less expensive option) but the NARS Sweet Dreams is my favorite.
And if you want to see the red lipstick on somebody, click HERE and scroll down to the bottom of the post to see the gorgeous Carmel from Our Fifth House wearing it!
