What to Wear for Christmas

Indulge me.

I’m giddy.

I am retiring my mom uniform (as of late) of more than ripe yoga pants and random t-shirts for something much more me…. much more….

GLAMOROUS!

So I had to decide what to wear for Christmas!

What to Wear for Christmas

This week I am hosting a little girl’s tea party for Amélie’s 7th birthday (Christmas Eve) and hosting Christmas.

And the kids were in the church play this morning so I wanted to wear something…. fabulous.

As if Jesus cares if I look fabulous. 

Ahem.

A couple of years ago I made this Carolina Herrera inspired skirt – with pockets.  Yes, I love her some much I named one of my goats after her.  But I haven’t worn it in three years so this is my week is my chance.  I needed a black-ish blouse but those are hard to find so I dyed this white one last minute, last night (with RIT dye)and yes, it’s a TOUCH purple and I paired it with the belt from my sophomore year homecoming dress (sometimes purging your closet is over-rated).

I worked hard for and paid for and wore that $400 red, velvet, Casual Corner dress twenty years ago and I can’t bare to part with it.  (Someday I will show you the whole thing and you will see why…. oie me… I had such excellent taste in my teens, says I….).  It hit Charming Charlie Friday (while grocery shopping) for clearance section rhinestone earrings ($6.99) and there you have it.  An... a mon avis…fabulous Christmas ensemble for a whole $11.

(This year’s cost of dye and earrings).

Oh, Adrienne Vittadini shoes from TJ Maxx two years ago (24.99).  Bestill my heart.  If shoes can ruin and outfit then these babies MAKE this one!!!!

Go shopping in your own closet.

    Love it Angela!!! I pulled an almost identical black and white wool blend skirt from the back of my closet to wear for Christmas this year but I hadn’t decided on what to wear on top so thanks for the inspiration……I may bust out black dye last minute as well 😉

    You rock! If only I had my 25 inch waste from junior high, I would be dressing much more stylishly always as I used to do before kids. 🙂

    Beautiful ensemble! I doubt Jesus cares what we wear to church but I figure if my employer holds me to a certain dress code then I should give God something even better. And that’s why I dress up for church. You’ll not see me in flipflops and sweatpants at church.

    I also want to tell you that I tried the “lime deodorant”. I was shocked at how well it works. Thanks for the tip! I love my new deo!
