Black Lace Dress | Montage Laguna Beach

This month marks so many wonderful things and one of them is holiday party time!  Who doesn’t love the opportunity to dress up like a QUEEN (that indeed, you are!) and wear jewelry that makes you feel like a mega star!?!  Sign me up any day because I love feeling glamorous, I love celebrating my femininity, and I love all things that sparkle and shine!  Please, read on to discover the beauty of Blue Nile at the amazing Montage Laguna Beach.




Finding the perfect dress for that holiday party is worth the effort, ladies!  The fit, fabric, style, and color must suit your body shape, personality, and budget.  The mermaid-inspired style of this dress elongates my profile. It is form fitting at the top then gently flares at the bottom. I love the movement when I walk in this black lace dress and it accentuates my figure perfectly.  The satin ribbon as a belt is a nice feminine touch I love!  To provide warmth during chilly nights, I paired the look with a black long-sleeved bolero with marabou feather trim.



Finding the right accessories to complete your outfit is equally important as selecting the perfect dress.  For a special holiday party, I love to wear  fine jewelry with a timeless, classic, elegant look.  Also, anything with clear gemstones whether it is diamonds or white topaz gives your look that show-stopping appeal!  I like wearing earrings, necklace, and bracelet that all compliment each other (but, it doesn’t necessary need to match).  I found all of that with Blue Nile’s Vintage-Inspired Freshwater Culture Pearl and White Topaz Jewelry Collection.  I think you will love it too, what do you think?


The Vintage-Inspired Freshwater Cultured Pearl and White Topaz Chandelier Earrings are just stunning! Wearing earrings that are at least an inch longer elongates your face making your face look thinner.  One of the reasons why I love chandelier style earrings!  Also, check out the Vintage-Inspired Freshwater Cultured Pearl and White Topaz Pendant Necklace, its “floating” freshwater cultured pearl is beautiful and enchanting. Lastly, I absolutely love Blue Nile’s Freshwater Cultured Pearl Cuff Bracelet because it is on trend (bracelet cuffs) but the lustrous pearls gives this jewelry piece an enduring style!
