Something inside us changes in the month of December…We are kinder, happier, more patient, and giving. We even start to dress differently…suddenly everyone is more dressed up with beautiful long lux coats, faux fur, and pretty dresses no matter how cold the air is. I love this time of year for all this, and so much more.
When I saw this dress at TJMAXX I thought of the holidays. The beautiful velvet roses make this simple slip dress the perfect thing to dress up and down for this time of year. . Because there was no holiday party in site, I wore it casually with a simple black mock neck under.
I originally planned to wear this with fishnet stockings, but it was freezing this day and your girl does not sacrifice warmth for style… power to you if you do…you’re a better woman than I am lol. I instead paired it with these faux leather leggings to still give me the edgy vibe I was going for with the fishnets.
I had on enough layers to skip the coat and do this bell sleeve cardigan instead, also from TJMAX. I love adding a third layer to give the look more style, and dress down the dress even more. I thought it gave off a more boho vibe, so I topped it off with my fedora and lace up combat boots.
To dress it up, I would add a sheer bell sleeve top under, some stockings, and pumps. This exact dress is sold out, but I linked similar below! Hope you enjoyed. More holiday inspired looks (with a twist) to come.
