Lady in Red // Bow Back Dress

Soprano Bow Back Fit and Flare Dress {for red, similar here and here}  Necklace: J. Crew {similar}     Bag: 88       Shoes: LC Lauren Conrad      Bracelets: Kate Spade      Lips: Tarte in "Bae" {available here}

As the holiday season approaches, I love getting dressed up in something fancy for a little taste of that holiday spirit.  You might remember this dress from my Things I Wish I'd Bought post two months ago: I managed to find it in the size I needed, and after a few nip-and-tuck alterations it was perfect!  I just love a festive red dress, and while this exact Soprano fit and flare is still available on Nordstrom in gorgeous blue, you can find an almost identical one by Alfred Sung here, or, if you're willing to splurge, a luxurious Emporio Armani here.

Since the back of the dress commands so much attention, you don't need a ton of accessories for a dress like this, but the front was relatively simple so I added my favorite floral lattice statement necklace from J. Crew for a little sparkle.  I also threw on my vegan leather Lauren Conrad heels and the Sophie ivory bag from 88.  And there's no look you can't make better with red lipstick- this Tarte shade is my signature that I use almost every day. 

What is your go-to holiday look?
