Holiday Glam

“The greatest gift of life is friendship, and I have received it.” – Hubert Humphrey

The holidays bring friends together like no other time of year. There is a general feeling of kinship as we all celebrate the holidays and reflect in gratitude at the year gone by. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the season brings a plethora of parties with it! I’m thrilled to partner today with one of my favorite designers Sachin & Babi and two of my best fashion friends Lyndsey and Rosie to share some festive fancy fete looks.

Perhaps I should actually say two of my favorite designers, as Sachin & Babi is actually a designing duo husband and wife team who have been working together for twenty years now! With roots in some of the most well known exclusive design houses, the two have carried that luxurious aesthetic forward into their own eponymous line. However, they also aim to offer this designer level of quality and craftsmanship at an attainable price point. Really, the attention to detail can’t be beat for the price. Even better, Sachin & Babi have generously offered 30% off to my readers. Just use the code carrie30 at checkout.

This holiday evening collection by the duo grabbed my attention immediately. With a focus on artistic exaggeration of silhouettes, fantasy florals, and amazingly vivid jolts of color, these pieces have all the ingredients for turning heads at whatever lavish event you might have this holiday season. I wore this dress to a modern black tie Christmas party on Saturday nights and received so many compliments!

In case you needed one more reason to fall in love with Sachin & Babi, please note the philanthropic efforts of the duo. Five percent of each and every online order goes to PACT (Promise to Act for Children Today). PACT is a non-profit dedicated to providing quality education, as well as other basic life needs such as health care, nutrition, and skills training, for Indian children. Help make an impact this holiday season with your shopping.

Final Thoughts

Last week was all about the gift ideas around here. There will be a little bit more of that this week. But the main focus will be on dressing yourself for the holidays. From a fancy party like today to a cocktail party to a casual gathering of friends, we will have ideas for all of that and more!

Thanks as always for stopping by – especially during this busy time of year. I appreciate your support more than you know! Have a great week.
