Baby, it’s cold outside! Whew! Nothing like taking a photoshoot in almost freezing temps! And in a thin red dress at that! I couldn’t resist this frilly red mini dress when I saw it on Zara, and thought it perfect for the Holiday season or perhaps NYE. I have shared a HOLIDAY look 1, Holiday Look 2, this and will also share my LBD later in the week for the 4th Holiday look. I plan on sharing more looks in faux-leather pants and jeans after the Holidays. But this one called for a bit of dressing up!
I did finish wrapping presents this weekend, as well as putting up the tree. I started to write my packing list for Pittsburgh, as we will be visiting this year with my Mom, two brothers and their wives, and a total of 4 dogs. It should be fun! This will be the first year without my Dad at Christmas and I really miss him. Its hard to picture him not being there with all of us.
I do reminisce about some of the Christmas traditions we used to enjoy as kids, such as seeing the decorated and themed windows in Kaufmann’s department store in Downtown Pittsburgh. They were magical and just got you in the spirit of the Holiday. For me, I get excited to give gifts, and can’t wait to pass out presents to my family, sit around a roaring fire and enjoy a Holiday cocktail. I can’t wait to see Gibby and Trufles interact with Jack ( the french bulldog) and Pedro ( a herding dog). My mom will be having only “fur-babies” over this Christmas.
I may just decide to wear this on NYE as Christmas Day I will wear this dress to Mass. I couldnt resist a LRD and am more fond of it on myself than the LBD at times. I paired this dress with some gold sparkly dangling leaf earrings, a black jeweled bib necklace by Zara, and pointed black kitten heels. The polka dot tights added to the fun festive look. I have been putting my hair in hot rollers as the curl holds much better . I hope to share some holiday hairstyles with you next week before I leave for Christmas.`
Do you own a LRD or do you prefer a LBD on yourself for festivities? What Holiday activities do you miss that you enjoyed as a child?
So now it’s time for us to Party! Let’s enjoy the Turning Heads Tuesday Linkup and have fun visiting !
