Beaded Grecian Cocktail Dress from Meat Market Vintage
Meat Market Vintage
Each week Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: The hunt for an all-purpose, glamorous dress for holiday parties ends here. Skip go-to festive brights like red and green in favor of creamy, wintery white in a flowing Grecian shape with an embellished empire waist (perfect for hiding evidence of a cookie binge).
Cost: $19.99 and up (bidding ends at 7:30 p.m. tonight)
Style this soiree-worthy getup after the jump.
Style It: Since head-to-toe white should be reserved for brides and evil White Witches, this dress needs some metallic touches and blushing neutrals to bring some life to its fresh-snow color scheme.
Sparkly accessories should be small statement-makers. Pick a couple mismatched metallics, like the Lulu Frost crystal ball earrings, and a bright gold sequined wallet from Zara, for a subtle sheen. For some height (and to keep your toes from freezing off) and Steve Madden's Pammyy platform wedges in nude suede. Christmas miracle/bonus: The skin-tone shoe will make your gams look lengthy.
