Holiday Fashions...

Christmas time... my favourite time of the year.  Also, my favourite time to dress up!  My original plan of the gold Ruche dress with green shoes was a complete fail.  It was one of those times where online vs. real life just didn't look the same.  The shoes, however, I love.  It took a few weeks, but I found the perfect dress to compliment them. It's not overly fancy, and can be easily dressed up or down, which I like, because I'll get to wear it again and again.

After finding a great Christmas dress that's versatile, I was motivated to do the same for New Years Eve.  My original intent was a gold dress (again, after that last fail), with some sparkle.  I admitted that it would be worn once and sit in my closet collecting dust.  I was hoping to find something with a Charleston vibe to it.  Venture out of my 40-60's bubble, and back in time for inspiration.  And I found it at Modcloth.

New Years Eve

I ordered the dress and the shoes (which were out of stock at Modcloth, but I found at LuLu's!).  Once I receive them and decide if they're keepers, I'll start looking for accessories.

We don't have New Years plans as of yet, but I like to be prepared just in case.  If we decide to stay in and have a quiet night, this is an outfit I'll definitely have the opportunity to wear another time.
