It’s no secret…we put a great deal of effort into our outfits around here. C’mon…we worked in the fashion biz for a decade. There’s just no giving up on looking good.
So when we found out we were getting a gift card from the sweet team behind Century 21, we were pretty stinkin’ excited. Perfectly timed to run out and find something to wear for the upcoming holiday cocktail parties we have been invited to.
My girlfriend who was visiting from Toronto this weekend said it best – “When you go to Century 21 you need a goal. You need to know exactly what type of pieces you are looking for (ie. a black dress, white shirt, you get the pic) so you can focus in and be efficient with your shopping.” – I appreciate these words of wisdom as C21 is a big store and can be a tad overwhelming….especially during the holidays!
I grabbed Ali and we took a shopping trip…all the way downtown. New outfit? On C21 for LMP? Sounds good to me!
We made a few purchases….and later made a few more. The beauty of C21 is their great shop ONLINE! Who doesn’t want to just buy a gorgeous black dress while sitting on your couch. It doesn’t fit? Send it back! So easy. Look at what we found…

And I’m sorry…but do we not have the most gorgeous assistant? Gosh the holidays are fun around here!
Do you want to know the best thing about the outfits you see us dressed in, on the pics above? We got it all for less then $250 bucks. Talk about a steal!
Where ever you might be this winter season…happy shopping and CHEERS to the holidays!
This post was sponsored by C21. But the content was from our LMP hearts and love for good shopping.
Once again…we got to do a birthday party for my friend Ilana (our fave mom blogger) better known as Mommy Shorts.
You might remember Mazzy’s Milk bar (one of our faves!) from last year…while this time round it was for Harlow’s first.
Ilana and I had both of our second kids just months apart from each other so Harlow & my lil guy Luke are good pals.
It’s always so nice when planning a party for a friend because after it’s all set up and looking gorgeous…you can enjoy the food too!
Ilana wanted to keep it small and have it on a Saturday morning. Immediately brunch came to mind and what would be better then pancakes and PJs! Coffee, peach bellinis, Chikalicious cronuts, mini cupcakes from Butter Lane and a cereal bar?! How could you go wrong with that!?
We also served the most fabulous new find – bagel pops from Bantam Bagels! They are mini bagel balls filled with cream cheese or butter and we got an assortment of both. Stuck em on sticks and voila! Something new and delicious for us to serve up at this party!
Ilana wanted the colors to be a soft and feminine palette which is how she bests describes Harlow’s style. So these honeycombs that we’ve been obsessing over from Shop Sweet Lulu were the most perfect touch above the main food table.

Here at Little Miss Party we do a lot of showers for both brides and moms to be. Showers are one of our favorite types of events because we really get the opportunity to go all out creatively for such a special occasion.
It’s sometimes hard to hold back on the decor at a baby shower…especially when working with a classic theme like a spa. There’s so much inspiration these days and I have an unhealthy addiction to Pinterest.
For this party, we worked with Karen the Cocktail Party Chef on a menu that was best suited for the guest of honor. This was an all Turkish menu including herbed falafels, skewered lamb kofte, kisir (turkish tabbouleh) and pita with all the fixins’ to dip. We served the guests family style so the ladies could lunch
I recently wrote about our day out in Montauk and how I needed a check list to keep organized and make for a fun day. I opened up the discussion to anything I may have been missing and guess what…I found out there was! Do you have a wet suit bag? You should! I just got one from my new friends over at Snapping Turtle and I love them! I send it in my son’s camp bag every day now…so there are no more soggy clothes in his bag when he throws his swim towel and suit in there. Add it to the list!
If you haven’t done so already, you’ve got to check out the duds for lil ones at Snapping Turtle Kids…they are adorable! My best friend and her kids came to stay with us last week and I scored the cutest swim suit for her daughter. I love the colors & design, the fit was great and this babe worked it.
I was so intrigued by this new discovery I made after testing the swimwear and accessories on my friend’s kids and reading the bio for this brand online…
Snapping Turtle Kids prides itself on designing swimwear and accessories to make your job as a parent a smooth sail. Our collection features stainless steel snaps for swimsuits, and 100% cotton terry cloth for beach cover ups and hats. Each collection was designed in New York City’s Garment District, and is inspired by our favorite vacation spots across the country.
We all know what it’s like to change a toddler out of their swimwear so to find a suit that makes this process as easy as possible is pretty awesome! And when it looks this cute…these swimsuits are a no brainer.
From swimsuits to tote bags you won’t go wrong with the sweet styles from this charming line of kids wear. Check em out…there’s still a few weeks left of summer…and then we need to start thinking about a winter vacation!
Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that you either love or you hate. I am somewhere in between. For those years I found myself single on Valentine’s Day, it was clearly a stupid day that was spent celebrating over one-too-many cocktails with my other single friends. Those nights never did end well. On the first Valentine’s day that my now husband surprised me with silly yet thoughtful Valentine’s presents sent to my doorstep, it was a fantastic holiday that I couldn’t get enough of. I have certainly been on both ends of the spectrum when it comes to my feelings on this Hallmark holiday. BUT as much as I can say it doesn’t matter to me, if a gorgeous bouquet of wild flowers happened to show up on my doorstep anywhere near February 14, I would not complain. I have to admit, I would be sad if I didn’t get flowers, or at least a card. Check out the below list of some last minute gifts you can surprise your sweetie with, which will all last way longer than flowers!
For Her :
Coralia Leets Moonsilver French Wire Earrings, $195.00. I have one word. Jewelry. It’s really the easiest gift EVER guys…come on. A simple no-brainer. Girls love jewelry. No matter what the holiday, what the occasion…good things really do come in small packages. These gorgeous earrings are discreet enough for everyday but will add just enough sparkle to your evening look. They are simply stunning. I love this designer because her jewelry is simple yet adds the perfect touch to any outfit. If sparkle isn’t your thing, she creates the same earring in a variety of different colored stones.
