Christmas Eve Eve Dinner

Forever 21 dress (old, really cute one here), B.P. blazer (similar), Target tights, Cathy Jean shoes (similar), Forever 21 necklace

I wish you guys could have seen how many outfits I tried on for Christmas Eve Eve dinner that our family had plans to go out for. For once it wasn't out of frustration that everything looked terrible, I actually just had so many ideas and things I wanted to wear. Sometimes getting dressed is so fun!! Anyways, it was also kind of ridiculous and my room hated me for it afterwards. But I finally settled on this little number and was so glad I got to pull this dress out of my closet again. It's a long sleeved, one-shoulder black sequin dress that I've managed to only wear once (it's a tiny bit short, and doesn't fit that wonderfully on top). But putting this all black ensemble together with a little extra sparkle from my necklace made it work for me and any night I can wear sequins is pretty great in my book.

  1. The dress looks great on you. I love the fact that there are a few times a year where you really get to dress up. Hope you have a great week. xo, Maria

  2. LOVE this all over black sequin dress!!! a fantastic take on the classic LBD! and the one you selected as a similar style even has sleeves!!! dresses with sleeves can be tricky to find, so thanks for the link :)
