Merry Christmas, baby!

The very merriest of Christmases to you!!

We are invited to two holiday celebrations today (and another tomorrow!) so of course I needed to rise to the occasion with a special party frock!!

This Free People sparkler was actually my Christmas dinner dress for last year’s staff party…it has already survived a soaking in beer (when my dear hubby accidentally knocked his drink into my lap!) and a subsequent run through the washing machine; the fact that it still looks pristine is a compliment to the company, I think!!

I didn’t want my jewellery to compete with the embellishments and metallic weave of the dress’s fabric, so I kept things minimal with no necklace, and just a simple stack of bracelets. No tights today… since I won’t be wearing my shoes indoors, I wanted to show off my pretty holiday pedicure. And the black coat (not the star of today’s look, but still worth mentioning!) was perfect for keeping me warm without competing for attention!!

And finally…drum roll, please!! The winner of my “Twelve Posts of Christmas” contest is:  S.D.C. of “Frugal, Fashionable and Forty Something”!! Congratulations; I will be contacting you very soon to get your mailing address!!
