Beverly Hills is always fantastic. But Beverly Hills during Christmas is beyond magical. The way the stores on Rodeo are decorated, and how the palm trees are lit on every street, puts you in serious holiday spirit mode. So for dinner at The Beverly Wilshire Hotel last weekend, I had no choice but to channel my inner holiday sparkle with this gorgeous bolero.
Champagne and sequins? Well, there’s just no better kind of nightΒ β™₯
