holiday party dresses

 

Now that we’re in December, it’s officially holiday party season! How lovely/handsome/spiffy do my work colleagues look at our company holiday party?! Since I’m petite, I tend to be loyal to bodycon dresses but I wanted something a bit more flirty AND breathable. Enter this gold number by Keepsake from Nasty Gal THE perfect party dress!

Calling this look my autumn effect. On a non-print wearing day, I enjoy the challenge of combing through my closet to see which complementary colors I can pair together. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. But when it does — like this time — I’m reminded about the necessity of stocking up on varying shades of colors that fall into the same family.

I’ll be back to posting regularly now that (real) life has calmed down a bit. Hope you’ve all been well!
