The challenge: Create a holiday party look using festive colours and/or holiday pieces without looking like a greeting card. This could be your opportunity to dust off that reindeer sweater you might have collecting dust in the back of your closet and turn it into something chic.
I am all about finding new places to shop and trying out new brands. It’s hard to find the perfect formal dress to begin with. Being petite makes it twice as hard. I have no choice but keep going back to the same retailers for my everyday clothes. I was wandering around the junior department at JCP the other day while waiting for my Mom and this dress caught my attention. I looked through the rack quickly and realized this dress is available in size 1. I thought it would be perfect for the upcoming holiday. Continue reading...
I love red but rarely wear it. I guess I am afraid to wear red because I wouldn’t want to draw attention to myself. I think this dress would be a perfect addition to my holiday wardrobe since it is not just a little black dress. The lace print makes it more festive and adds a nice touch to the dress. I realized that I am not very creative with this challenge. As much as I love Christmas and holidays, this cold weather freezes my holiday spirit.
The dress made by Speechless. I am pretty sure this brand can be found in many places such as Macy's, Amazon... Original price was $50.00. After 40% discount, it comes to $29.99. I do not spend a lot of money on formal attire that is going to be worn once or twice before it’s shoved to the back of my closet. I only invest in my everyday items. This dress is very affordable. The most important thing is it fits well.
As is our tradition, we decorated for Christmas the morning after Thanksgiving. The Christmas tree is up, the stockings are hung and the outdoor lights are lit. Perfect background for the holiday post :) I hope you guys all enjoy this challenge and thanks Elaine for hosting it. Please stop by her blog to check out other fabulous entries.
