Dresses and I go way back. My mom would sew dresses for me when I was little and I continued with my love of dresses into adulthood.
This Lagia red Maxi dress gifted to me by Soft Surroundings caught my eye as I pictured it for the upcoming Holiday season as well as to a show, dinner, anytime I want to wear it!
Dress for the Holidays
This deep shade of red is my favorite shade of red. An orangy-red is a bit too bright for my taste and I prefer the same with my red lipstick. I do love to dress up for the Holidays, and thought this Lagia maxi dress would be the perfect base for my other festive styling ideas- perhaps a faux fur stole, or adding a gold scarf and sparkly accessories to this look. A pair of vintage chandelier earrings that will pair nicely.
The Lagia dress does come in other colors- teal, royal blue, black and red. It also comes in Petite and Women’s sizing. I am wearing an XS here, which is what I wear in Soft Surroundings. I am also 5 foot 9, so the length is really just perfect, but keep that in mind.
The waist/twist detail, as it is more fitted shows your shape – accentuating the waist. The rest of the dress is an A-line shape.
The material is nice and weighty, and has some stretch to it. It is very comfortable in a ponte knit.
We will be heading to my In-laws house in Harleysville, PA this year for Christmas, and my mom’s In Pittsburgh for Thanksgiving.
I do enjoy dressing up, but will also be in a cozy outfit prior to Christmas dinner. Last year, due to Covid and not having family there, it was all about the PJs/ So, this is a refreshing change of pace!
I will be styling this dress on the blog closer to Christmas, so you can see some of the added touches I will make. I do like a longer dress with long coats, so I will be wearing either my red or camel coat with this dress.
Gold accessories are very flattering with red and during the Holidays you want that extra sparkle!
Weekend wrap up
We had a fun time hosting our little shih tzu friend down the street, Sammie, who is just darling . Friday we had a play date, took her out on the greenway for a longer walk and the pups loved having her over. She gravitates toward me and my hubby though, and loves people! It was so hilarious, as I was taking a bath, she scratched on the door as she heard my voice, and took a running leap into the tub! Her owner thought it was so funny!
We also visited one of our favorite breweries as Saturday was such a cool and pretty day outside. A favorite brewery to me, is one that has music, and has more than “white” or “red” for their wine selection 🙂 !
Are you planning on dressing up over the Holidays, or do you still prefer Pjs or loungewear?
