I’ve had quite a few parties to go to since the holiday season started – it’s part of the reason why I love Christmastime so much, you get to spend so much of it with family and friends. I always like getting dolled up for events, and my favorite local place to pick up anything from party supplies to makeup and stockings is Duane Reade!
Their legwear is a perfect party outfit pick-me-up – now, you can always find typical tights at Duane Reade, but during the season I’m a sucker for their more eccentric pieces. After being invited to a local beauty event I headed over to Duane Reade over on 51st – where they have a massive selection – and bought a couple pairs of their tights. But my favorites for this time of year are their black glittery tights.
These are so perfect for jazzing up a holiday party outfit – the glitter just make’s your outfit a little more glamorous, I think. Also, while they look very opaque in store, out of the package they’re a little more sheer but still surprisingly sturdy.
I love bows – they make very festive accents and sort of remind me of Christmas presents.
I also picked up this Milani polish on sale at Duane Reade. Party tip: if you’re running low on time before a party, swing by any Duane Reade and grab a glittery top coat. It make’s your nails look so fun, and you’re sure to get a ton of compliments!
I’m definitely planning on wearing the glittery one’s for New Year’s Eve – they really do add a little “something” to your outfit.
