Merry Christmas!

Voodoo Vixen Daphne dress 007

Okay, so I know Christmas is actually tomorrow.  But as us Argentinians do, we celebrate tonight!  Our whole family is meeting up at our grandmother's house for some homemade empanadas and Argentinian desserts.  I know I don't look South American, but my mother immigrated here with her family as a young girl.  My dad is also Argentinian but was born here in the states.  Anyway, we like to eat, open presents, and stay up until midnight to celebrate Christmas.  I can't remember the last time I actually stayed up to celebrate, but at least I have Bianca as an excuse to go to bed early.  I have to be nice and rested for my 31st birthday tomorrow ;).

Dress- Voodoo Vixen
Shoes- Steve Madden
Hair piece- custom piece from NicCoCo Creations
Bracelet- c/o Touchstone Crystal by Swarovski

I've had my eye on this Voodoo Vixen dress for quite some time.  A very big part of me didn't want to buy this version (it also comes in a swing skirt) because I felt pretty uncomfortable with my post baby body.  That is, until I tried it on.  I don't know if it's my more mature thought process or the fact that this dress does wonders to everybody but I fell in love.  I wore it to the Unique Vintage Christmas party a few weeks ago and got tons of compliments!  I paired it with my favorite hair piece ever, my NicCoCo red star burst.  I think this dress might be too dressy for dinner tonight, but the hair piece will work its way into my outfit.

I hope you have a lovely Christmas!  I can't wait to celebrate this day with Bianca.  I'm way more excited to see her open her presents than I am to open my own Christmas/birthday gifts.  Don't get me wrong, I can't wait to see what Kevin got me (he gave me ZERO hints) but spending the day with my new family will be the best gift ever.
