It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas and back in my house, Christmas is all around as seen by one (of the many) extremely ornamental trees displayed...this one, being the main one, which is fully dressed up in red ornaments, a tradition every year after our tree transitioned from being all dressed up in gold. I simply love Christmas...there is something absolutely festive and fun around the air and it's nice to see family getting together and being together... you can just feel the love. This motif of course went perfectly for one of my many party dresses for the holiday season (and trust me there are a lot) which was a lace black and white peplum strapless dress. I absolutely love this dress as it is very demure and ladies-who-lunch. The length, I believe is perfect as it falls directly under the knee...which makes it absolutely perfect for a lunch party/ Champagne Brunch. I accented it with red accessories, one of them being my cat-eye sunglasses (my essentials for daytime dressing) and one of my favorite pairs of shoes, a crystal studded patent pair of pumps from Lanvin. Tis the season to be jolly, and I was full of joy in this ensemble. Also, I love Christmas because it is also a sign that one of my other favorite holiday is looming- New Year! I just love the close cycles and open a fresh new page...which is exactly what New Year is all about... out with the old and in with the new. Trust me, with everything that has transpired in 2013, I am so ready to be out with the old... I have had enough of all that.
