Let’s start by stating the obvious: it’s party season. Weeks of fêtes both casual and fancy, culminating in the party of the year on New Year’s Eve. Our staff, naturally, is not immune to the influx of invites that define December, so we asked them to share their party looks, and while we had their attention, we posed a few holiday-themed questions. Tune in all week as they share their holiday style, wish lists, and traditions.
What are your plans for the holidays?
Heading home to be with family. We host a lasagna dinner at my parents’ house every Christmas.
Favorite holiday tradition?
Drinking coffee and eating pastry around the tree on Christmas morning.
Favorite holiday movie?
Mixed Nuts with Steve Martin. We watch it every year.
The best present you received as a child was...
New skis. I also got a full-body tie-dye dance leotard one year that I thought was pretty awesome.
The best present you received as an adult was...
Our dog Klaus. He has the purest spirit and makes me happy every day.
Item topping your wish list?
My family decided to exchange only handmade or antique/vintage gifts this year. I have no idea what to expect!
Do you have a fail-safe hostess gift?
All year, I collect small pottery vases so I can fill them with holly bouquets for brave holiday hosts.
Go-to brand for dressing up?
I’m not much of a dress-up girl, but when the occasion calls for it, I have good luck with Alexander Wang.
What is your post-holiday relaxation routine?
Watching NBA basketball. It puts me at ease like nothing else!
Shop holiday party looks.
