It's the most wonderful time of year! The holidays are just around the corner and of all the questions that confront you during your holiday preparations—Can I re-gift these decorative candles? Where in the garage are the outdoor lights? Traditional turkey or something a little more trendy for dinner? How many calories are in this piece of shortbread?—we're guessing: What should I wear to this party? tops the list.
While we can't help locate those wayward lights, we can help you figure out what to wear to all your get-togethers. GoodLife has partnered with Upper Canada Mall to bring you three inspirational outfits—with items all found within the shopping centre—to keep you gorgeous from the office party to dinner with the family to New Year's Eve.

The look: Office Party
A holiday office party doesn't mean you have to attend wearing the same safe (read boring) suit you live in from 9 to 5. It's time to let your hair down—to show of these charming feather earrings from H&M—and mingle with your co-workers. The company get together is the perfect place to show off not only your sharp sense of style but ideas to match. This statement-making cape back dress from Eeva & Eve is a great a conversation starter. Add a killer Sergio Feretti clutch and Simon Chang bling!

Ah, the holidays: a time for great food, drinks and doing the rounds at family parties. Whether your family get-togethers are non-stop laughing or cringe worthy with Uncle Norman's inappropriate jokes, take it all in stride in gorgeous Michael Kors leopard pumps. A celebration always calls for some sparkle and shine, so let your accessories add some glamour against a bright red jacket—festive mood achieved! If a dress isn't for you, a structured black jumpsuit not only allows you the freedom of easy movement, but will look sharp in all those family pictures.
