Dress - MakeMeChic
Shoes - L.A.M.B.
It's almost that time. Without fail every year, these holidays creep up on us. I know Bloomingdales had their lights up in like, September...but still. I find myself last-minute shopping. Again.
I can never get enough of the warm and festive ambience of the holidays. This time of the season gets so busy with everyone trying to wrap up work before the year ends, and some of us have to remind ourselves to actually stop to enjoy it. Sit at a coffee shop right in the middle of Fifth Ave to watch the rosy-cheeked tourists shuffle in for a shopping break. Glance out the window and take in the bird's-eye views of building decorations that are completely different from the ground level persepctive. And sit under the twinkling lights that will soon disappear when everyone prepares their clean slate in the new year.
Of course, as far as sartorial concerns go...we sure love to reach for all things sparkly and shiny. Sometimes, though, keeping things classic is best- and that little black dress will never fail. Particularly great for situations such as your work holiday party.
The one I'm wearing here is from Make Me Chic, and you can get it here. I've also listed several similar LBD options below, and all for less than $100. Which is amazing for a dress you can wear over and over.
