Friday Fashion Debate: New Years Party Attire

We all know New Years Eve is one of the best days of the year for fashion. Who doesn’t love to get ultra dressed up in your best glam attire and celebrate the New Year with friends and family? I know I do!

First and foremost, the number one most important part of your New Years outfit is SPARKLE! Sequins, shine and shimmer are all welcome textures in the perfect New Years look.

This is limited to the clothing either. Sparkle can be in your makeup, your nails, your accessories, or if you are feeling really fun then do it all!


Secondly, you usually go with something a bit more sleek and slim fitting for New Years. For our Christmas party looks, we talked about full skirts and a-line dresses but with this look you want to show off a bit more. This doesNew Years Eve outfit: not mean you have to wear something super short or revealing. I love the idea of a sequin pant or a sparkly legging with a nice shirt and tailored blazer. Nothing about this looks says inappropriate but the lines are very sleek and clean.

Really though, if I am being honest, this is the one day of the year that limits sort of go out the window. Whatever your style is, start the New Year being the best you! The whole point of a New Year’s party is to remember the year we had and celebrate the one we are about to start and a celebration is about happiness and joy!

Cheers to 2017!

Friday Fashion Debate: Holiday Party Attire

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! What a fun time of year and a fun time for fashion! Today we are going to discuss the best trends for your Christmas party outfit.

Classic winter tulle - OliviaRink.com: Personally, I think the cutest outfits for Christmas parties are the ultra feminine and somewhat frilly pieces. A tulle skirt or an A-line flare dress with tights is an adorable look for any holiday gathering!

Maybe your Christmas gathering is a more casual event. In this case I love the idea of a plaid shirt and a fur vest. This look fits the season and takes the casual look of a plaid shirt and pumps it up just a notch by adding fur (of course I mean faux fur). 🙂

I still haven’t figured out the perfect way to add a stylish hat to this look, they just never seem to look right on me but I love the one pictured in the photo.

Show up to your party with either of these looks and you are going to rock your holiday outfit!

Holiday Season

As we get closer to Christmas, I feel like it is important to talk about giving back. Here at Leonard’s we are big into the season of giving! We started off by doing a canned food drive in November which we donated to a local shelter here in St Augustine that had been affected by Hurricane Matthew. We were the headline sponsor of the Reindeer Run which benefits the Boys & Girls Club and we had a team of over 20 actually participate in the run! Right now we are having a toy drive and I personally plan to go to the Boys & Girls Club when they allow volunteers to come in and help wrap gifts for the kids next week!

It doesn’t matter what holiday you celebrate, or if you celebrate at all. What matters is that this is a time of year where we all tend to indulge one way or another and it is important to remember not everyone is as fortunate. 

Big or small, anything helps. If you can’t make monetary donations or go out and buy food and gifts, you can volunteer your time. A lot of shelters and non profits just need an extra set of hands around this time of the year.

I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season!
