holiday party madness

This holiday season, I was on the search for the perfect dress for holiday parties.

I wanted a dress that would be appropriate for a few holiday parties at different venues. I also wanted to find one that was versatile, so that I could dress it up or dress it down and wear it year round. Although the dress I found is not super festive and sparkly, it still ended up being exactly what I was looking for.

If I feel like I need to be a little bit more modest, I can always cover up with a blazer or my trusty leather jacket, and the dress turns into a classic, basic LBD. To add an element of edginess, I go without the cover up-- the peekaboo cutout detail on the back shows just enough skin without being too much for my taste. To make it more casual, I would pair this dress with ankle booties.

But I'm in love with my new heels. I'm sure you'll be seeing them plenty of times in future posts. :)
