BCBG dress $11.90 and Miz Mooz shoes gifted but thrifted for $13.30, both from VV Boutique
Tights were a (suggested) Christmas gift from my hubby
Accessories from She Does Create and thrifted
This dress fulfilled my Christmas dinner outfit recommendations perfectly! The ties at the waist are totally adjustable - I could eat a 20lb turkey and it would still fit!
I love love LOVE the pattern and colours in this dress.
Plum, coral, butter, blue, red - so many mix or match possibilities!
And the high-low hem is 29 in the front and 39 in the back - SO THERE.
Santa brought me the January issue of In Style so I was freshly inspired to try something different for a finishing layer...
Pair a moto-style jacket with a pretty dress to toughen up a sweet look...
(Sounds a bit like wearing something casual with something fancy!)
What do you know - In Style was right. (So was I.)
There's no grey in this dress, but grey is a neutral and the tones complement.
Plus it's the only moto-style piece of clothing I have.
My mother-in-law is notorious for keeping the house cool (I once wore a toque inside
because I was legitimately freezing as a joke) so I threw on a scarf too...
Another gifted but thrifted piece $4.20 from VV Boutique
And so it came to pass that I wore a BCBG dress to a farm in rural Alberta for Christmas dinner. I may not have fit in with the prevailing crowd, but I was totally in sync with me and that's a good way to be.
