Hi guys! Hope everyone’s week has been going well. I am so excited it’s Thursday because well, this has been a long week, but also I finally get to share with you a fun partnership I have been working on! The Mills at Jersey Gardens, which is New Jersey’s largest outlet and value retail center with over 200 stores under one roof, located in Elizabeth, NJ asked if I would do a fun shop along out at the mall to find some festive pieces for New Year’s Eve and offer some fun tips and advice surrounding the biggest trends for the upcoming holiday!
I will also be doing a takeover on The Mills at Jersey Gardens Instagram, which will bring to life all the fun finds you’ll see below, so make sure to follow along on their feed: @millsatjersey!
Fun fact: Research shows that outlet mall shopping is currently trending as more and more people are searching for ways to stay fashionable without breaking the bank. Since 2013, total outlet industry sales have risen to $45.6 billion, solidifying consumer interest in value retail sales. If you are unfamiliar with outlet shopping, I highly recommend it – so many great brands available at amazing prices
It’s kind of crazy to me that we are already talking about New Year’s Eve because I feel like I’m still back in November, but believe it or not, the holiday is less than a month away! A few major trends I think will be huge for NYE are velvet, metallic, sequins, beaded and anything and everything sparkly! Let’s take a look…
First stop…Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth!
How incredible are these NYE dresses I found in Saks Fifth Ave Off 5th. I love how each dress is so different, yet still on trend and has its own personality.
Next up, H&M! About to dive in and see what fun NYE dresses and trends I can find!
Loving the sparkly material of this dress, plus how fun are the sleeves?! I could see wearing this piece with some sheer black tights and a cute pair of velvet high heel Mary Janes!
Stopped into Express afterwards…I can’t get over these amazing NYE finds! A few of my favorite holiday trends all in one dressing room (velvet, beaded, sparkly goodness) – what’s better than that?! I might have to snag the velvet romper and take it home with me…
What types of trends and dresses are you into this year for the holidays? Are you all about the velvet pieces like I am, or is a sequin number more your style? Let me know in the comments! xo
