Dressing for the Holiday Party Season

Dress: c/o Dress Empire
Tights: Nordstrom
Booties: Miss Sixty (similar)

Thanks to Dress Empire, I am totally ready for the holidays, no need now to shop for New Years Eve dresses! I took this Shail K dress to Key West with me, thinking it would be fun with some black strappy sandals, but decided to style it for the blog with opaque tights and booties for a more cold-weather holiday look. The dress runs a bit big - I ordered a 14 because usually formalwear runs small, but think a 12 or even a 10 would have been a better fit.  I like that this dress is festive but also quite comfortable - I could enjoy a couple of glasses of egg nog without feeling like a stuffed sausage.  I do need to wear it with a strapless bra as it will shimmy off a shoulder when dancing.  The dress is well made - no itchy threading inside, a nice stretchy elastic drop-waist and well-matched stripes and seams.I think this could also work as a tunic with a pair of leggings.
