Dress: Bailey 44, size xs/ Jewelry: Fantasia By DeSerio/ Shoes: Abound, similar here/ Clutch: Chanel
My first Holiday post! I wrote this while listening to Christmas music and tbh, I cannot WAIT to put up the tree! I wanted to kick off my Holiday blog series by sharing my favorite Holiday dresses with you (all under $200) and my new favorite jewelry line, Fantasia by DeSerio. First, let’s talk jewelry. Because nothing jazzes up a cocktail dress better than jewelry, right? I was introduced to this brand by a good friend and when they reached out to partner together, I couldn’t wait to jump on board. So here’s the scoop.
Fantasia By DeSerio is a family owned business (they started in 1925!) that started out setting diamonds. After several years, their high profile clients started requesting replicas for their travels and events where they didn’t want to wear their actual expensive diamonds and jewelry. So began the idea of “the look and feel of real.” I don’t travel with my engagement ring and love the idea of being able to FEEL like I’m wearing a real, expensive piece without the worry of losing it or having someone steal it out of a hotel room. These are made with high quality metals (like 14k gold) and expertly set (which is why they look like the real deal). When we did our photo shoot together, I was SWOONING over how pretty and real they look.
Some of my favorites are this band (wearing above), this bracelet, and these hoop earrings. I had to share in case you guys wanted to snag a gift for yourself or someone you love this Holiday Season! The great people at Fantasia By DeSerio are giving you guys an exclusive discount to shop on their site with the code KARA20. This code will get you 20% off your purchase! WHAT?! Even better? You can use that discount with their current promotion which is $50 off of a $500 purchase or $100 off of a $1000 purchase. So good! I’m also sharing only the best of Holiday dresses all under $200. To be honest, it was pretty easy for me to edit this list down because I’m REALLY picky when it comes to dressy dresses…I have certain styles/looks that appeal to me and I pass on everything else! I rounded up what I’m loving this Season below. I figured I’d share so you can get a jump start on any Weddings, events, work parties or Holiday parties you may have on your calendar in the next few months! Cheers and as always, thank you so much for following along! xo
