Festive Holiday Accessories

Black Bow Clutch for the Holidays and Black Glitter Heel Pumps

When it comes to holiday parties, festive accessories are my favorite way to make outfits a bit more cheery! Statement shoes, bow-tied bags, and glitzy jewels are a surefire way to make a statement. Can you believe Thanksgiving is just two weeks away? And after that, it’s a full five weeks of fancy fetes and swanky soirées until New Years Day! The holiday season definitely snuck up on me this year, but I’m excited for all that’s to come over the next month or two. So let’s chat about what we’re going to wear, shall we?

No matter the occasion, you can never go wrong with a LBD! I recently picked up this velvet LBD (only $35!) knowing it would be absolutely perfect for multiple holiday parties over the weeks to come. I’ve got a major crush on just about anything velvet this season, and I couldn’t say no to the easy fit and flare shape!

You can style it so many different ways, but I chose to keep a dark black monochromatic look with just a few pops of sparkle! Can we talk about these shoes for a second?! So good, right?! And again, only $35. Can’t beat it! Plus, they’re pretty comfy, too, so you can definitely still dance the night away.

We all know I love a well-placed bow! Typically, I wouldn’t wear two bows at once, but hey, it’s the holiday season. This elastic faux leather belt is so easy to wear at the waist, all you need is a fit and flare dress! And the little bow box clutch? I know I’ll be using it over the holidays for years to come. The ribbon bow is darling! And since it’s under $30, it would make for the perfect stocking stuffer, too.

Budget-friendly accessories have always been my trick for making old dresses feel new again and injecting some fun into my wardrobe! Charming Charlie has such a great selection of sparkly and shiny shoes, jewelry, and accessories to jazz up your party attire this holiday season. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or the social butterfly on your list, you’re sure to find a few great gifts!

    I was wondering if the shoes run big or small? They don’t come in half sizes and I would like to order them but they don’t carry 6 1/2.
