Holiday Red



This is my last post featuring holiday party attire...and it might just be my most favorite yet (see previous looks herehere & here).  Though I try to keep all the items here budget-friendly, I will from time to time feature splurge-worthy pieces that I believe to be worth the investment - and this red dress definitely fits the bill.  It's comfortable, flattering, and I'm so obsessed with the drop waist & full flared skirt that I couldn't stop twirling around in it.  I added this glamorous fur snood & a wool coat to stay warm on a chilly night...and, of course, a dash of sequins is always festive.

I will be taking a break from posting on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day so I can enjoy the holiday with my family. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas & a special time with loved ones & friends!





What I'm wearing:
c/o Maggie London dress (here), Nine West coat (on sale here), c/o Style by Marina snood (here), Ralph Lauren pumps (via Marshall's; similar on sale here), Zara clutch (here), J. Crew Factory bracelet & earrings, Nails: Sally Hansen White On

So beautiful!! Love, love, love, and that last twirl is awesome. I just had to return a drop waist; the waist fell so low on me that man was it not flattering, lol, but this is SO beautiful, Kim. Love every detail, and really need that bracelet. So mad I passed it up.

TaraMixandMatch said...

I'd have to agree, this may be my favorite look of yours as well. You look like an old time movie star!! Tell me, how does that coat run size wise?
I'm looking for linens on macys.com right now and see that they have this coat on sale in my size...may as well order it too. Thanks girl! I can always count on you for sizing help! You have helped me in the past before!
Thanks!!
