JeanGreige 's thoughts:

Whenever I see my family for the holidays, I try to make an effort to dress up a little. However, I find that it can sometimes be difficult finding a balance between something a bit “nice” and something that is still very “me”. I liked the Hepburn quality to this dress, combined with the bright color (it seems festive and fun and light!), but felt the need to balance out the sweetness with the motorcycle jacket, and then add the shoes for an appropriate level of WTFness. This outfit basically says, “Hi, I recognize that this is a special occasion, but it’s not like I can magically stop being weird just because it’s a holiday.” I think that’s a good place to be.

The low chignon is my new favorite hairstyle. It even looks good on normal not-fancy days if you pair it with an eff-ton of jewelry (big fancy chandelier earrings!) and super dark lipstick.
