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.
