Merry Christmas Eve! I’m double blogging about velvet. Velvet has been a major trend in 2016. I have to admit I’ve been a fan for a few years. I purchased this red velvet dress from Dillard’s a couple of years ago. I remember first wearing it and receiving so many compliments. I felt I was dressed as a Christmas present all wrapped up! I wore this last Christmas Eve and I’ll be wearing it tomorrow for Christmas day! Sorry family for the duplicate family Christmas photos! This has been such a great holiday outfit for me. I like pairing this dress with lace tights each year to give even more detail to my look! Scroll down to see yesterday’s blog post where I talked about the use of different prints and trends in your outfit.
Well I’m off to help my mom in the kitchen this morning! I’ll be making cake balls for our Christmas Eve party with the hubby’s family tonight. What Christmas plans are you forward to? What holiday outfits are you looking forward to wearing this season? I hope all of you have a wonderful Merry Christmas.

I’m finally able to post again! The back office of my blog had been down for the last couple weeks so thankfully it’s back up in time just for the holidays (thank you to my tech savvy hubby). I’ll be sharing my holiday looks today and also tomorrow which is Christmas Eve!
Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Wow the temps have definitely dropped since I last posted. I wore this outfit in the 30’s. I also wore this on Thanksgiving Day during all of our family festivities. What I love about this particular outfit is the many different textures. I’m wearing velvet on top; leather, lace and suede on the bottom. Talk about a fashion crisis! Despite such an array of textures, I’ve never felt anything but confident in this outfit. *Take notes here – mixing textures is a good thing, a very good thing. It’s a risk that shows your confidence and adds a personal touch to your style.
Examples to try in your own closet:
Leather skirt with cotton or cashmere sweater; or your favorite band’s t-shirt
Velvet skirt with Metallic cotton top
Denim with a velvet top and metallic jacket
Denim with a chiffon shirt (this is a current trend)
Lace top and velvet bottoms or stay safe with denim on bottom
Textures that are huge this winter season:
Has anyone seen the new Fashion Color of the Year for 2017? Well that’s going to be interesting. I look sick in this color so stay tuned to see how I try to incorporate it this next year into my personal wardrobe!
P.S. Sorry about the wrinkled skirt, I wore this all day before taking the pictures and didn’t realize it was so wrinkled until I saw these pictures!
