A Very SPANX Holiday

A Very SPANX Holiday


There’s no denying it…this time of year is the height of parties and events! Holiday parties, office soirees, family get-together, the opportunities to celebrate and dress up seem endless! And when I do dress up, I want to make sure that I put my best foot forward and feel glamorous from the inside out.  While outfits are key- I also think what’s underneath is another key element!


For me, I personally don’t leave the house for a special event without first putting on my favorite pair of SPANX.  Wether I’m looking to sculpt or smooth, SPANX helps my clothes lie better and ultimately makes me feel more confident in my special occasion wear. Recently I’ve been wearing favorites from the Power Conceal-Her collection that are so lightweight but also powerful. This particular collection combats my cellulite (yes, I’m not ashamed to admit I have it!) and gives me a flawless finish underneath my dresses! The power of this collection lies within the double-layer of shaping, so dimples and bumps don’t stand a chance. The effect is amazing, and I can’t imagine wearing my holiday looks without it! So this year, I thought I’d share not only what I’m wearing for my holiday events…but what’s underneath!






While a little red dress seems appropriate this time of year, I like to do things a little differently! Especially since I’m home in Florida over the holiday, I love to go with a more unexpected style of holiday dress! Off the shoulder and more suited for a warmer holiday, this blush number was short, flirty, and perfect for holiday cocktails with my hometown crew! With my SPANX High-Waisted Power Conceal-Her Extended Length Short, SPANX kept my waist smooth under the fit and flare shape!

Well getting dressed up isn’t just for the holidays! Since I’m back home, I find myself grabbing dinners with old friends and colleagues, many of whom I haven’t seen in years! A fancy dinner, tickets to a show, or just no occasion can suddenly turn into a special occasion. For those moments, I again turn to SPANX to keep me smooth underneath my outfit! In this instance, I’m headed to a dinner at our local club- and wearing a silk pleated skirt and cropped,  pleated champagne top! Since the skirt lies over the top, but it also cropped- I wanted something with a little more coverage. A SPANX bodysuit smoothed my tummy and bum, fighting both cellulite and panty lines underneath an otherwise finicky silk skirt. So no matter the occasion- SPANX has me covered, from top to bottom!


Power Conceal-Her Open-Bust Mid-Thigh Bodysuit: SPANX.  Top: Elizabeth and James.  Skirt: Tibi. Earrings: Natasha Accessories (only $12.97!).  Heels: Stuart Weitzman (Similar).  Bag: Saint Laurent (Similar).






New Years Eve means two things in my book- rhinestones and champagne! Im wearing a simple back dress for my night on the town, but topping it off with an uber-glam embellished blazer from Alice and Olivia! The best part about this look? I could wear either piece, the dress or the blazer, separately and for any occasion! I see myself wearing the black dress to work under a more understated blazer or to dinner underneath a leather jacket. I’d wear the rhinestone blazer with a simple tee and jeans for a more casual look! In this instance, I perfected my look with my SPANX black Extended Length Short to keep me svelte from waste to knee, which was perfect for the longer cocktail length of my curve-hugging dress! Plus, black on black- there’s nothing more classic!

      Ah that one is my favorite too! The skirt actually has a matching top, but I felt like this one was a little flirtier. Thanks for the love Helen- means the world!
