#hauteholidays @ Twelve 24 Boutique

Friday night I had an amazing time kicking off my "Haute for the Holidays" series at Twelve 24 Boutique. The focus of the evening was cocktail dresses and the fabulous ways to accessorize them. We had an amazing time checking out the latest pieces from local designer's Lavender's Jungle and Jibri, as well as some fabulous #stylesteals guaranteed to turn heads.

My good friend Cassandra Mason of Gem N Baubles mobile accessories boutique was on hand to lend her expertise in the accessories arena. She supplied fabulous designer inspired clutches and handbags that were a fraction of their designer retail price. In addition to being a style maven, she also is a culinary czar! She prepared homemade cranberry/pineapple sauce which was the essential element to my "Parker's Punch" signature cocktail.

As the evening progressed and the cocktails continued to flow, it was time to play dress up. Blogger buddies Tish Foster of Curvie Birdie & Nikka Shae of Oh!Nikka were good sports and let me treat them like a living  Barbie doll. Tish looked #haute in an adorable black peplum top, while Nikka was our diva for the evening in my fave Lavender's Jungle plum satin cocktail dress & #AMAZING Jibri Holiday Sweetie Dress in leopard sequin.

I had such a great time playing hostess with the mostess and taking over one of my favorite boutiques. Thanks so much to Angela & Melanie of Twelve 24 Boutique for allowing me to share my #hauteholiday picks of the season!
