How to Dress Down Your Party Dress

Tips on how to dress down a red lace party dress for fall.

We all have that one section of our closets filled with our favorite party dresses. They are the dresses that you pull out for special occasions, the ones that have maybe been worn once or twice, at least. Well, today I’m here talking about how we can break out our party dresses on the regular, and wear them not only at night but during the day too!

This gorgeous cranberry red lace party dress by Yoana Baraschi (one of my favorite designers I have to say!) would make the most stunning holiday dress or fall “wedding guest” dress.

At the moment, it even fits my growing baby belly. #win.

To get the most out of this festive frock, I paired it with a black leather jacket and matching flats.

The edgier pieces drastically dress down the feminine lace details, making it more appropriate for daytime or happy hour with the girls.

Lace Dresses I’m Also Loving

So are you now feeling inspired to pull out those party dresses during the day too? I’m a firm believer in wearing everything hanging in your closet as much as possible!

In non-fashion related news, Patrick and I have a very exciting week ahead of us! We are officially moving into our new home this week! I’ve been a bit MIA on social media lately, with all the packing (& naps in between #pregnancyprolesm) we’ve been SO busy getting ready for the move.

With this big move comes exciting things for Lone Star Looking Glass. I’m planning on introducing an entire new chapter of content into the blog: home decor! Right after college I worked on several home reno shows for DIY Network (it was the beeesssst job) and I’ve always loved watching home makeover shows, seeing before & afters and what not.  Now that I finally get to do some serious DIY-ing, decorating & home decor updates of my own – I’m completely over the moon!

Which is why I naturally thought I’d take this opportunity to document & share my home decor updates with you all too! Stay tuned for some really exciting new content popping up on the blog next month!

Wishing you all an easy Monday! & as always, thanks for stopping by the blog!

    I am so guilty of wearing party dresses after whatever event I bought it for & wearing them until I’ve gotten my moneys worth LOL

    Can’t wait to see what home things you have coming our way. I have a few DIYs coming in October myself 😛
