We have a couple of more outfit inspirations for the holiday party season. Whether just going out for a nice dinner or to a fabulous party, December is the time to step it up and sparkle.

If you are a girlie girl, then you love florals and take any opportunity to wear them! Girlie girls also love to accessorize to the max: pearls and jewels. We think Joomi Lim would make a great pairing with any pretty floral dress to maximize that romantic femininity.

From Net-a-Porter: ALICE BY TEMPERLEY dress; BOTTEGA VENETA clutch; MIU MIU pumps
From Sophie's Closet: JOOMI LIM "Secret D'Amour" necklace (AED 1790); JOOMI LIM mini "Bijoux" pearl bracelet (AED 450); JOOMI LIM large pretty "Bijoux" ring (AED 490)

A true party girl always needs some tulle, sequins, fringe or, in this case, feathers to make her truly stand out at a party without having to be the loudest girl there. We like to keep it classy, of course. We love the combination of our crystal jewels: a little bit of danger with CC Skye's spikey bracelets, a little bit of femininity with Jennifer Behr and a little bit of Old Hollywood class with Joomi Lim and vintage Sherman.

From Net-a-Porter: DVF silk leaf dress; MICHAEL KORS ankle sandals; BOTTEGA VENETA clutch
From Sophie's Closet: JENNIFER BEHR crystal braid (AED 2570); CC SKYE "Starburst" crystal bangle (AED 540); JOOMI LIM large pretty "Bijoux" ring (AED 690); SHERMAN vintage Aurora Borealis earrings (c. 1950s, AED 750)

A bit of 80s retro is always fun but we like to keep it contemporary and hip (no spandex for us). 80s were all about glam punk so we paired a pretty yellow Halston dress with our Vita Fede and Joomi Lim spiked numbers. To glam it up just a touch, we added statement pieces like CC Skye's "Femme Fatale" earrings and multiple Vita Fede snakeskin bangles. Very retro but not over-the-top.

From Net-a-Porter: HALSTON dress; ANYA HINDMARCH clutch; CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN pumps
From Sophie's Closet: CC SKYE "Femme Fatale" earrings (AED 750); VITA FEDE "DO" ring (AED 760); VITA FEDE metallic snakeskin bangles (AED 575 each); JOOMI LIM spike bangles (AED 470)

We hope we've inspired your New Years Eve ensemble!

Sophie's Closet in HARPER's BAZAAR (again!)

Natalia Vodianova on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Arabia (November, 2010)

We were featured in both October and November issues of Harper's Bazaar Arabia! Again, we couldn't be more honored -- it's one of our favourites!

We are loving this red colour story. And we agree: no colour story is complete without some Rachel Leigh's bright "Gumball" rings!

RACHEL LEIGH "Gumball" Ring (AED 350)

As we always say, rock chic never goes out of style. We, just like Harper's Bazaar, prefer more of a sophisticated interpretation on the style. That's shy CC Skye is always perfect for this look. Feminine, sexy and a little bit tough.

CC SKYE "Power" Ring (AED 880)

Jewelry is truly the best gift of all. Who wouldn't love to be gifted with some glamorous CC Skye bracelets ?

CC SKYE Pave Stud Bracelet (AED 1100)

CC SKYE "Starburst" Bangle (AED 540)

Nicole Ritchie graces the cover of Harper's Bazaar Arabia (October 2010)

October's issue featured a blue story with our CC Skye (we think CC Skye may be their favourite?) screw bracelet. We love it too. What a perfect companion for a great pair of bright blue denim jeans!

CC SKYE Screw Bracelet (AED 420)

For their glamorous lace story, they included Jacques Fath's stunning pearl ring. Is there a better combination than lace and pearls? We think not!

JACQUES FATH Bal a Versailles Ring (AED 960)

We are continuing to play holiday dress up. This week, our inspiration are a couple of amazing editorials from Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and Vogue Russia.


Dana by Susanne Spiel for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia (October 2010)

From Sophie's Closet: JENNIFER BEHR c
rystal and silk headwrap (AED 1100); JOOMI LIM mini "Bijoux" ring (AED 350); SIMAN TU smoky quartz chandelier earrings (AED 1430); CC SKYE "Gigi" ring (AED 750)

We adore this Old Hollywood look. It evokes memories of extremely polished actresses like Jean Harlow and Grace Kelly at their most glamorous. There is nothing classier than a little black dress and lace adds some extra sexiness to it. Instead of a veil (who wears those these days?) we paired it with a very glam Jennifer Behr headwrap and the, always phenomenal, Siman Tu black chandelier earrings. We also love how this model is wearing not one but two chunky statement rings! We would chose a very feminine and sparkly Joomi Lim on one hand, and a classic but a little tougher CC Skye ring on the other.


Anja Rubik by Sølve Sundsbø for Vogue Russia (November 2010)

From Sophie's Closet: LISA FREEDE Swarovski bracelet (AED 570); CC SKYE pave spike ring (AED 750); KENNETH JAY LANE crystal cluster earrings (AED 300)

Lady in red always gets the attention. Only the most confident of women can do a little red dress justice. Pair it with killer red lipstick to match, sky high stiletto pumps and, of course, some sparkly jewellery. Here we paired a red Marchesa one-shoulder dress with a some of our best sparkly pieces like the gorgeous Kenneth Jay Lane cluster crystal earrings, a delicate Lisa Freede bracelet and a glamorous, but a little dangerous, CC Skye spike ring.

Next week we have a couple of more looks to get you all ready for the holiday season. Head to www.shopatsophiescloset.com to begin your shopping.
