On Sunday, I attended the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island in New York. Party-goers from all over the city came the small island dressed in 1920′s vintage clothing, danced to the sounds of Michael Arenella’s Dreamland Orchestra and enjoyed a variety of food, drinks and activities. This year, I opted for a simple cream lace dress and vintage-inspired jewelry.
Below is my Style File:
Lace Shift Dress (Forever 21, $27.80)
Of course, I had to throw on a quirky mustache to layer with my mother’s pearls.
Mustache Charm Necklace (Forever 21, $5.80)
The Victorian Woman ring is the most “vintage looking” accessory that I wore. Unfortunately, I don’t remember where it was purchased. However, Amazon.com and Victoria’s Jewelry Box might be a good place to start if you’re looking for more authentic-looking pieces.

Finding the perfect dress for an Office Holiday Party can be a bit tricky. You want something that is festive and cute, but doesn’t scream “take me to the nightclub now!” According to the Management Study Guide, “Party at the office does not mean one has the liberty to wear revealing clothes.” Wearing a dress that shows too much cleavage or a skirt that shows your underwear is not impressive. Although the party may be an after-work function, you will be surrounded by co-workers and more importantly, supervisors. While they may not treat you as if you are on-the-clock, supervisors are constantly overseeing employee grooming and behavior. Remember, you don’t have to go on an entire shopping spree to find an appropriate outfit for the office holiday party. Mix festive colored blouses that may be hiding in your closet (i.e., silver, red, gold) and match them with a knee-length black skirt. Fun jewelry can give flair to any outfit. At A*cute, we LOVE dresses! Below are a few inspirational holiday office party dresses. What are you planning to wear to your office party? Comments Welcomed
