Holiday Collection | Dressing Room Diaries

Y’all. I’m absolutely floored by your response to the launch of our Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Holiday Collection yesterday. Flabbergasted. Gobsmacked. Speechless!! Honestly, I can’t even properly articulate how I feel. It’s a mixture of shocked and overwhelmed. It’s beyond humbling, and I can only hope that these small words convey all the love, gratitude, and emotion I feel… thank you!

The Gibson Team and I work tirelessly to create pieces you’ll look and feel incredible in, and it’s so gratifying when we hear your joy and excitement. You inspire us to continue creating new and exciting Collections, and to raise the bar even more each time!

Yesterday was all about the individual pieces, but inquiring minds want to know what Mama Sugarplum thinks!! Which pieces she’ll wear, how she’ll wear them, along with her best sizing for each.

She came over to help me with the launch on Tuesday, and it didn’t take much to sweet talk her into playing dress-up with me… she adores the Collection! So here’s my darling Mama SP styling her faves from the Collection, along with some fun new combinations for the Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Holiday Collection!

Sidenote: I’m 5’4″ and 120-ish pounds, and usually wear a 0/XS. Mama Sugarplum is 5’1″ with an hourglass figure, and usually wears a Small/2-petite.

 

Let’s start with her favorite top in the group, the Lumiere Ballet Top! She loves the sleeve and full coverage across the chest, along with the little sass in the back. The back dips lower, but still allows for a traditional bra, which is always a bonus!

The sleeve hits at the perfect spot on the upper arm, keeping it both covered and creating a slimming effect. She loves the sequins for dressier styles, but the black ponte knit is her choice for everyday. It’s thick and soft, and can be worn to work with skirts or trousers, or more casual with jeans.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS and find it completely true to size. Mama SP in a small.

The Confetti Tank is a gorgeous and sassy top with a double v-neck in the front and back… and yet, still completely bra-friendly!! She loves it tucked into the Brigitte Wide Leg Pant, untucked with jeans, and especially layered under the Mimi Velvet Blazer! Isn’t the red so stunning on her!?

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS, but would size down if in-between. Mama SP sized down to an XS in the top, and an XSP in the pant.

We’re both suckers for a ruffle, so I wasn’t surprised by how much she loves the Noel Bow Back Top! The high-neck provides more coverage, so she’d wear it for more casual occasions than the Confetti Tank, as well as dress it up with skirts and trousers. And of course, layered under the Mimi Velvet Blazer!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS and find it completely true to size. Mama SP is in a small, but could wear a small petite, as well.

Let’s talk skirts… while she loves both styles, the Coco Holiday Skirt is definitely Mama SP’s favorite! The elastic waist allows for a comfortable fit and extra breathing room, while the chiffon layers are light and flowy. The knee length is also perfect for work, church, and parties.

She pairs them with the matching Noel Bow Back Tank as a fun set, and also with a contrasting top.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS-Petite to allow more length in the regular sizes! So if you’re under 5’4″, I’d recommend petite, but the rest of you stick with regular (unless you prefer it shorter!) The elastic has a lot of give, so size down one if you’re small-waisted. Mama SP sized down to an XS-Petite.

Mama Sugarplum thinks the Etoile Party Skirt (my fave of the pair!) is darling, but prefers the comfort of the Coco Holiday Skirt. Although when she put this combo on, she was doing some serious dancing and twirling!! Dancing is always a good indicator for me, ha! She does love the gorgeous jacquard and classic plaid material, and agrees the skirt is impeccably made!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS-Petite for a shorter length, but would recommend regular sizing for 5’5″ and up. The waist is fitted without elastic, so consider sizing up one depending on your shape. Mama SP in Small-Petite.

Do I even need to tell you how she feels about this combo?! I mean, she’s stunning… and she felt it! The Soiree Sequin Tank Dress is actually quite comfortable thanks to the soft jersey lining and extra stretch of the sequins! Plus, the tank style is completely bra-friendly!

We both love how it lightly skims the body without clinging. It’s subtly sexy, with a lot of sass! The gorgeous copper sequin is incredibly flattering on all skin tones, too.

And the Mimi Velvet Blazer is definitely in her Top 3 of the Collection! It’s a gorgeous, supple velvet that’s thick with a touch of stretch, and a flattering and feminine silhouette. She layers it over every top and dress, and pairs with all the skirts and pant.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS-Petite for a shorter length, so size down if you’re shorter than 5’5″. Mama SP in a small petite dress and small petite blazer.

We were having so much fun playing with the new Collection, we decided to create some more casual combos that would be great for date night, girls night out, more casual parties, etc.

Which basically means we paired each of our favorite tops with jeans… and bling, always the bling! (Don’t forget code SUGARPLUM20 saves you 20% on everything here!)

In fact, I’d wear each of these combos now… no need to wait for holidays, or even special events!

Sidenote: We had a small delay with the Noel Bow Back Top in this black floral, but it’s now available here!!

And because she’s so gorgeous, and I love these photos so much, here’s Mama Sugarplum fully styled in her favorite Holiday pieces! I’m so glad she’s able to join us on the photoshoots, because I know I couldn’t do them without her! The whole team just adores her!

She’s so stunning, right?! I’ve got all my fingers and toes crossed that I age as beautifully and gracefully as her! Would you believe she’s even more beautiful on the inside? She’s been my best friend for as long as I can remember, and rarely a day goes by we don’t talk. I’m so grateful she’s able to be part of these Collections, and love that so many of you appreciate and embrace her, too!

I hope this post has been helpful! You can find more styling combinations, along with all the undergarment recommendations in this post. And shop the full Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Holiday Collection HERE, and plus size HERE.

    Hi Cassie,
    Do you know if or when the pants from your holiday collection will be restocked? I logged on at 6am EST the day of the launch to purchase the pants. I thought I was early?! :). Unfortunately, I received an email this morning from Nordstrom saying they could not fulfill the order. I guess those pants were extremely popular! :). Those pants were the one items I truly wanted from the collection. :).

      Oh shoot, I’m sorry to hear that, Lisa! We don’t have formal restocks planned right now, but many people order multiple sizes, so we should see return stock come back in a week or two! I’ll keep an eye out for that! Thanks so much for the support! xo. C

    Your Mom is truly beautiful. Seeing you two together makes me miss my Mother so much.
    Like you and you Mom, we talked every day. Sometimes twice a day. We always shopped together. After all these years I can’t shop with anyone else. Some how its not the same.

    I love your collection. My wide leg pants should be arriving any day now. Can’t wait to try the on.
    Thanks so much for sharing your life with us. What a blessing!

      I feel the same way, Judy! In my case the pain really never goes away, I just learn to deal with it. I’m wishing you peace.

    I just love the wide leg black pants – beautiful on both of you. What I like the most is the waist band. I bought a pair of black wide leg pants to wear during a flight to Italy this summer. They were very comfortable, but the ones I bought have the paper bag waist – not as slimming as yours. Your Mom is a doll.

      Hey girl! Here’s the link to the white Gibson blazer, one of my favorite pieces ever! https://shopstyle.it/l/9Dxz

      And we’ll keep everyone updated on returned Holiday inventory… people usually order more than one size and return what doesn’t fit.

      xo, Cassie
