the christmas dress

I’ve always found Christmas parties to be a special kind of wonderful. I love a festive get-together of any sort, but something about the magic and cheer of the holiday season makes Christmas parties my favorite of the year! Naturally, attire must be on. point.

DRESS   Bow Back Dress   |   HEELS   Stuart Weitzman Nudist Heels   |   CLUTCH   Fur Clutch (not online at H&M yet, similar linked)    |   EARRINGS   Pearl Earrings   |   RING   Pearl Ring

For me, vibrant reds, sparkly golds or anything and everything fur (hello, cute little clutch) always seem to get the job done. This darling dress embodies everything I love in a holiday frock! The classic full skirt just gets me (I had mine hemmed up a few inches) and the elegant, fun neckline? Perfection! Don’t even get me started on the bow at the back.

This baby is under $60, and also comes in black. Sizes are selling out quick, so I can’t recommend snatching it up asap enough for your merry events ahead!

Love from Texas,

    Love this look! I’ve seen this dress everywhere for weeks but it’s been sold out for at least 2 weeks in the red. Any advice on where to look for it, other than Nordstrom (as linked)? You look beautiful!!
