So it’s a holiday weekend. How are you choosing to spend it? We all know what a holiday implies, we all understand that we can take that extra day to do whatever it is that we please, we aaaalllll know the classic jingle by Madonna (although most of us would rather deny that we know every word). The real question is, what sounds better: cozying up to your favorite Netflix series or socializing with the neighbors at their Labor Day BBQ bash?
In 2016, I would guess that a majority of those reading this today would opt for the cozier (lazier) option. I’m with you all! Although the thought of throwing on a great outfit and fraternizing with Mr. and Mrs. Smith across the street does sound lovely, the idea of staying in pajamas and vegging out sounds oh so magical. Call me lazy, antisocial– what have you–but sometimes it’s important to realize that a holiday is best spent with yourself.
Happy Labor Day from me to you. Spread out on the couch, throw on some cozy socks and pour yourself a glass of wine. While you’re at it, shop the StyleChat app. Why not? You’ve got nothing else to do.

Only a few more hours until we bring in the New Year! Hopefully by now you know exactly what you’re wearing! Now it’s time to put on the makeup that will make you look dazzling all night long!
Here are a few helpful tips to keep in mind when deciding what makeup to wear!
New Years is the one time of year when sparkly eye shadow is more than acceptable! If you want to put some sparkle in your look, here are three ways you could do it.
Try wearing silver or brown sparkly eye shadow for a sexy and sultry look!
If you don’t want your entire eye covered in sparkles, opt for a matte eye shadow with a thin line of sparkly eye liner around the full circumference of your eye!
If you’d rather leave your eye makeup simple, put a shimmery blush on the top of your cheekbones to get that slightly shimmery look on your cheeks.
Remember, sparkles are great, but keep them contained to one part of your face. If you’re putting sparkles on your eyes, keep you cheeks and lips fairly neutral. If you’re wearing a sparkly blush, give your eyes a more simple and sophisticated look.
Last but not least, once you’ve got your makeup applied and you look like the belle of the ball, don’t forget to snap a lot of pictures!

You can never go wrong wearing a little black dress to your holiday parties. However, shopping for a little black dress can be a daunting task when there are so many different styles available. Although there are so many options, we’ve narrowed it down to six common styles to help you figure out which one best suits your taste! There’s the cut-out dress, the simple high-neck with a flare skirt, the spaghetti strap dress, the long-sleeve bodycon, the strapless bodycon, and the halter.
The cut-out dress is for the woman who’s fearless in her fashion choices. On the other end of the spectrum is the simple high-neck dress with a playful flare A-line skirt. A plain black cocktail dress can be dulled up with a fancy chunky necklace or a bold handbag to give it that extra bit of flavor you’re craving!
The spaghetti strap dress is a great option when you want to look sexy but you want a dress that won’t fall down when you’re dancing the night away! The halter dress will also keep you looking sexy on the dance floor. Ready to show off your beautiful shoulders and strong arms? The halter dress will do wonders making your upper body look great!
If you’re looking for more coverage and don’t want to bare it all in the cold weather, there are lots of long-sleeve dresses to choose from this winter. The one in the featured image is great because it incorporates one of the hottest trends this season: the tie-up plunge neckline.
While all of these styles are flattering in their own way, you can never go wrong with the classic strapless bandage dress. This kind of dress will show off your shoulders and accentuate your beautiful curves. Choose the classic strapless bodycon if you want to look effortlessly sexy!
