Tis the season…for holiday parties!

 I’ll admit.  I didn’t wear this to a holiday party….yet!  I thought it might be fun to do a few posts a week this month on “fancier” clothes, because this is the season when a parties/get togethers could be sprung on you last minute!  I like to be prepared.  That is why I have a ridiculous amount of party dresses on hand “just in case” haha.  I snap up timeless dresses (or not so timeless if the price is right) all the time, because you KNOW that when you are in a bind and looking…there’s nothing to be found.  Funny thing is.  I’m not inherently a dress girl.  My comfort zone is pants.  For some reason, dresses make me feel…vulnerable?  Something I don’t like to be.  Anywho…here’s dress #1 with two shoe options.  I couldn’t decide which one I liked better.

Oddly enough, the Huz readily agreed to take these pictures.  Hmmm, shocking 🙂

Please forgive the ghostly pale legs.  I do live in Seattle…Blog Joie Silk Dress-1I love this dress, because the black and white print is pretty timeless.  You can mix in any number of pops of color, or just stay with classic black.

    Before I forget: that little velvet jacket on Maya is amazing! Adorable. I like both shoes, but I adore those heels! So perfect. I just bought a timeless black and white dress that I love so much I wore it to Thanksgiving, and I am sorta planning on wearing it to Christmas Eve AND New Year’s…… which is unlike me but I just adore it!

      Thank you! I had no idea how/where she would wear it when I saw it at the thrift store, and what do you know. It worked here! 🙂

      That is one of the reasons I love black and white dresses so much! You can totally change them up with accessories and wear them on multiple occasions, yet it looks completely different! WIN!! 🙂
