Party Lines: 3 L.A. Designers Team Up For A Stylish Throw Down

Although the weather outside was downright frightful (what's with all the L.A. drizzle anyways?), the gals of Elkin and A Fine Line didn't let a few rain drops ruin their perfectly posh party. If anything, the cool temps made the indoor happenings all the more cozy and chic, which is quite fitting if you take into account the evening's hosts. Considering Kara and Brit Smith of Elkin's designs are beloved by indie darlings, and Alisia Leibel's label, A Fine Line, is strictly for those who wish to stay cozy sans sartorial sacrifice — we knew we were about to witness one of the most fashionable fetes of the season.
Naturally, the Beverly Hills abode was decked to the nines with a magazine-worthy tree and vintage holiday lawn decorations. Between the digital photo booth (which, by the way, is incredibly addicting once seasonal props are introduced), loads of homemade goodies, and the bar stocked with Bushmills booze, there was no shortage of silly antics and much-needed rumpus. The fun and games didn't end there. Guests were encouraged to bring a toy to donate to the Children's Hospital of L.A. — no Grinches on this guest list!
