Holiday parties are in full swing around here ladies, and I’ve been putting together many outfits for various events. I am also trying to choose what to wear for New Years. (for which the below dress is a big contender) From the reactions, question + comments I’ve been seeing from you on TheBoxQueen social media, I know that most of you need inspiration for holiday outfits.
Today I am sharing a Sparkly Gold Holiday Dress Outfit (details under photos per usual) as well as my Fine Jewelry Wish List. ( New Years, with all its glam and shine, almost always makes me think of the fine jewelry pieces I adore) Throughout the following weeks, I’ll continue sharing holiday looks that I hope will help with your outfit decisions too.
If you’ve been a reader of TheBoxQueen for any amount of time, you probably know my love for jewelry as I wear and show you my favorites in all my style posts. Although I usually share more accessible semi-precious stones, designer pieces or costume jewelry here, I also definitely have a big love for fine jewelry too.
My love for fine jewelry started with the first sapphire necklace gifted to me by my parents on my 16th birthday. This was such a special memory that I’ve always kept that piece and added more to my collection over the years with items I bought for myself. (I am a firm believer you don’t have to wait for someone to gift you jewelry) There are also some favorites gifted by my husband starting with my beloved engagement ring.
As years went on, and we started having kids, my priorities definetely shifted towards giving them a good life, a solid education, and also world traveling to show them this gorgeous planet we live on. I do still keep a fine jewelry wish list that I update though which is easily accessible for my husband if and when he needs ideas for anniversary gifts and such. I mean a girl can keep dreaming right? (and hi love because I know you are kind enough to read all my posts haha) I am sharing that list with you all today.
Before we take a peak, I want to remind one service lovers of fine jewelry should not forget which is jewelry coverage for their precious pieces that undoubtedly also hold high sentimental value. ( at least for me all my fine jewelry mark a milestone, accomplishment, a certain memory or a special day) Insuring your jewelry gives you, and your recipient if you are gifting, peace of mind. With a company like Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company, you get an extra level of protection compared to typical homeowners or renter insurance.
Jewelers Mutual has been exclusively insuring jewelry for more than 100 years and they offer repair or replacement coverage that includes worldwide travel protection for all types of jewelry and watches. ( which is very important for me as we travel internationally on a regular basis) Coverage includes loss, theft, damage and mysterious disappearance (unexplained loss). Pretty cool and so very needed for those beauties we adore!
Ready to see my most recent fine jewelry wish list? Here we go. I love each and every one of these pieces so much! Can’t wait to hear about your favorites in the comments. I am so curious!!
1. Double Drop Earrings
2. Châtelaine Pendant Necklace
3. Malachite & Sapphire Earrings
4. Ring with Semiprecious Stone & Diamonds
5. Osetra Station Cuff Bracelet
6. Heart & Arrow Link Necklace
7. Pearl Triple Strand Bracelet
8. Diamond Stud Earrings
Style Tip: For this outfit I chose a sleeveless dress with a V neck. I find V necks to be flattering on many body types, and I like that the V on this particular dress is not too deep or tiny; its just right. This dress, with its sparkly gold fabric, makes such a bold statement that I did not want to overwhelm it with too big pieces.
I chose small drop earrings and a layered chain bracelet to enhance the dress. Lately I’ve been loving mixing metals and here I did that by pairing the gold dress with silver colored accessories. My designer pieces are from Rocksbox. ( You can get your free month here with my code: theboxqueenxoxo) For shoes I chose a gold snake print peep toe that has black velvet back and velvet straps.
