Designer Jessie Randall of Loeffler Randall fame has been an R29 fave and friend for yonks now. So, naturally, we were more than delighted to be on the receiving end of some snaps of her and the Loeffler Randall team's recent holiday party, which went down at Freemans Restaurant and ended somewhere in the wee hours with karaoke. Sounds like it was a good year for the LR folks!
Above: This year's party theme was 'ugly Christmas sweaters.' Our fashion assistant, Kyle, scoured eBay for the ugliest, most offensive ones he could find—our outfits to wear to the party. Here, Brian and I are headed to dinner. I am putting off wearing my smelly eBay sweater till the last possible moment. Bri is wearing his own pair of candy cane embroidered wide wale cords. Cute!
Above: Me walking to the restaurant in bedazzled Christmas sweater featuring an intarsia tree with real ringing jingle bells and LR "berry" criss-cross pumps.

Above: Breaking out the durkl sunglasses and vodka gimlets—two LR traditions.
Above, from left: Late night at Winnie's karaoke bar in Chinatown. Allison in her LR Piper zip-up boots and Christmas sweater rocking out to "Like A Prayer"; me and Mark, our favorite make-up artist extraordinaire, prepare to take on a favorite duet. By the end of the night, Mark will be wearing Libby's pair of size 10 LR shoes.
Above: A sampling of the sweaters…my favorite is a toss up between Kyle's snowman vest and Kalai's glitter dusted green velvet holiday blazer.
