Dress: Chi Chi London // Bag (℅): 88 Handbags // Shoes: LC Lauren Conrad // Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick // Lips: Tarte 'Bae'
I originally saw this Chi Chi London dress on my favorite fashion blog earlier this year, and I fell in love. When you think floral, the first thing that pops to the mind is spring, but I love wearing floral print year round (same with plaid, gingham, and other prints you might relegate to a certain season). This dress would be perfect for a spring wedding, but I'll be wearing this to holiday cocktail parties and dinners this season.
One of my favorite tricks to make an outfit a little fancier and at the same time add definition to the waist is to tie on a bow belt. This is just a simple black satin sash that I added on, and not only did it add an extra formal touch, but it helped pull in the extra fabric of the dress (the size I got was too big and I hadn't gotten alterations done yet). This is my favorite DIY quick fix.
I just added on my favorite accessories for a formal look: heels, my signature red lipstick, and a simple bag and pearl bracelet so as not to distract from the dress.
What is your favorite holiday outfit this season?
