Building the perfect holiday look in this week’s Dress Your Table and Yourself challenge? We love Ted Baker’s dresses for festive fête’s this time of year. Never overdone, but always with the perfect element of flare, his styles will complete your holiday wardrobe. His Enid tunic ($325, Bloomingdale’s) pairs beautifully with Jimmy Choo’s Anouk pump ($595, Jimmy Choo) and the perfect topper, a gold bow headband from Tuleste ($125, Bluefly). We’re in love!
