Holiday Outfit: Green Velvet Dress, Bow Print Tights, and Rose Gold Heels

Happy Friday everyone! I was looking forward to debuting my green velvet dress from Modcloth on this family visit! This is the outfit I ended up wearing yesterday for Christmas dinner. Green velvet is kind of perfect for the holiday so I went all out and styled this dress extra holiday-tastic with bow tights and a bow necklace. This is definitely the classy way to wear this green dress. The whole outfit had a great mix of texture, pattern, and shine a la What Not To Wear rules. I'll probably be able to style this dress in a much more casual way when I get home though! How would you wear it on a normal day about town?

Anyway, I'm pretty excited about having a velvet dress again. I had a blue crushed velvet dress but it was way too big in the boobs and shoulders so I gave it to my sister. This one is such a classic shape and a perfect length on me. With its deep scoop neck my boobs were out a tiny bit more than I'm used to these days, but nobody was mad about that. It's also very nice to pet even if I have to rub it upward instead of downward to experience the softness.

Did you have a good week? I hope Christmas was a lot of fun for those of you who celebrate. My immediate family opened presents before Christmas so there wasn't anything to open yesterday. It wasn't a particularly exciting holiday but I can't complain about that. It was nice seeing family and dinner was delicious! 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead! I'm looking forward to catching up on your blogs before diving back into the ol' job hunt. Good times.

Happy Friday!

Aaaah, Jamie, I agree with Keit, that green is perfect on you! n_____n It just goes so well with your beautiful red hair. Isn't velvet an amazing material? It can be hard to fit sometimes, so I'm glad that you found one that works well for you (even though you think it shows some extra boobage). Those heels are so shiny and gorgeous, too! What a beautiful holiday outfit. :D

Dear Jamie.
Thinking of a post and reviewing my desk, I doubted this Green or the red dress?...

Loving the velvet green dress, and the matching bow necklace and tights! I'm always in search of cute printed tights and these are just adorable. I'll be checking out Forever 21 ;). Hope you had a lovely holiday and a wonderful start to the new year!
