It's the most wonderful time of the year! When it comes to fashion, we love what every season brings with it, but there's something about the holiday season that gets us in the mood to go full-glam.
Have you ever found yourself at a holiday work function or family gathering, only to realize you're wearing the EXACT same dress or heels as someone else? It's a great conversation starter, but also a bit of a bummer. Although it might feel easiest to make a stop at the mall to shop the latest (though limited) holiday collections, here's the beautiful thing about curated consignment - a fully-consigned look is almost guaranteed to be uniquely yours.
In the spirit of the season (*cue holiday tunes*), we're using this month's edition of The Essentialist to showcase a few of our favourite holiday looks, all with an emphasis on glamour. Knowing that holiday festivities aren't limited to office parties and family dinners - you've got your Secret Santa gatherings, gal's night, etc. etc. etc., we pulled blazers, comfy sweaters, pantsuits and more to give you some inspo that speaks to a whole spectrum of occassions and styles.
We hope these looks inspire you to explore outside the safety zone of that little black dress - not that we don't have major LBD love too.
