Sandra Bullock's Yellow Fur Coat, Polka Dot Dress, and Knee High Boots Look for Less

Sandra Bullock always looks so put together!
Sandra Bullock gives us something totally different with her bright yellow Apparis fur coat and stiletto boots! We love the bold color choice here, contrasted with the ladylike polka dot print on her chiffon midi dress. She's dishing up sophistication and sass in the most unexpected way - and it's surprisingly easy to copy with this Bernardo faux fur jacket - now 50% off! Another option that's even more glam if you're in the mood to splurge is this Topshop topper. Either one is perfect for your holiday party circuit!

Case in point: I was in the market for a new blow dryer. I didn't want to splurge on a designer brand but didn't want to waste money on something cheap either.

Nothing says party time quite like sparkle, feathers and animal prints! Actress Arden Cho is giving us major inspiration for a New Year's Eve bash. Her exact Vince Camuto feather-hem dress is on sale now for just $101, not bad for a gorgeous frock that will help you ring in 2019 in style. Keep your eye on her accessories, too. Toss on a leopard coat (more is more for New Year's after all), cinch your waist with a sleek belt, and carry your essentials in an eye-catching sequin clutch. Cheers to that!
