{GBF Life + Style + Giveaway} What Would Katharine Wear?

This week marks the beginning of my holiday social calendar. With stylish parties erupting all over the city from now until New Year's, the season of glittery dresses is bursting at the seams. Being an innately girly girl,  I will undoubtedly wear my share of party frocks but I also plan on channeling Katharine Hepburn (my Hollywood feminist hero) during the holidays by glamming up pants for some of the city's most festive blowouts. 

Wearing pants to a holiday party is unexpected and requires a bit more creativity and thought than simply throwing on a dress. I like to start with a textured and festive top with an interesting shape. Pair it with patterned pants that's in the same color group as the top as you want the pants to stand out but not like a sore thumb. Statement making heels in contrasting colorway are a must while draping an eye popping necklace will really dress up the outfit. Finish off the look with a dressy clutch and you are ready to glam up the night and go head to head with the best of the sequined feather dresses!

To celebrate the start of the glam holiday season, I've partnered with ShoeMint to give away one pair (your choice) of feet stunners. ShoeMint offers luxurious, stylish and affordable shoes that are designed by my style crush Rachel Bilson and made by Steve Madden.The quality is truly exceptional as they use real leather and suede while their free shipping and returns make shopping effortless and addicting.
