Holiday outfit ideas: Formal event

Frank Sinatra – Little Drummer Boy
Bing Crosby – White Christmas
Leon Redbone and Zooey Deschanel – Baby It’s Cold Outside

  Here’s something I have been working on for the past weeks (and still am – hope I can finish on time): holiday outfits for different occasions. I still get excited around this time of year, just like in childhood. There is a sense of miracle that keeps my mind wandering into daydream while I look at the snowy streets from my window. This season has a lot to do with fairy tales… Holidays have lots of perks but party dressing is among my favorites (geez, who would’ve thooought). I’d go to a formal party wearing one of these looks. The first one is a black pencil skirt and white shirt combo jazzed up by a peplum belt and polka dot tights – I love this simple silhouette. Second outfit is a burgundy velvet dress paired with matching kitten heels and green earrings. And I wouldn’t pass the opportunity to post a couple of Christmas songs – festive tunes will accompany this whole series!
