Bold As Love

debdress1

You can't tell by the look of these pictures, but it was raining when I took them.  The past few days have been cold, rainy, and miserable but that's no excuse to dress down.  This dress from Debshops is a perfect piece to dress up or down without looking sloppy.  Today I chose to go a little on the dressy side with a few pops of color.  What do you think?

Dress- c/o Debshops
Cardigan- New York & Co.
Tights- Target
Fur collar- H&M (similar)
Shoes- Jessica Simpson

I also wore this dress to my early birthday dinner on Friday.  Because the holidays are so hectic, I tend to celebrate a little bit early.  I had a dinner with a few friends and one of my brothers, it was small but really nice.  It also rained on Friday so our night ended a bit early, us Californians aren't used to partying in bad weather!
 
I'll be hosting Christmas dinner this year with my fiance's family.  I've decided on ham but I'm still planning out my side dishes and dessert.  Do you have any must have dishes for Christmas?  Please let me know if you do!

And that fur stole was the perfect touch for a fancy little birthday dinner :) And I'm polish so we make these old school dishes my great-great grandma used to make...and trust me, you wouldn't want to try those out haha.

  8. Everything is changing for us for how we celebrate things in life, so I am unsure what my favorite dish is for Christmas. I don't think we make anything differently from Thanksgiving actually!
    Your dress is so cute! I hope you have a really wonderful birthday, by the way.
