When it comes to getting dressed up for holiday parties, I typically do the little black dress thing. This year for my hubs Christmas work party I’ve been thinking of spicing things up a bit.
What do we think? Does this deep coral dress work? I thought a red dress would be a little too cliche even if I am a red lover at heart. This deep shade of coral seems like a nice twist to get me out of the “little black dress” box I ever so neatly tuck myself into every year. It’s festive but not too over the top jolly. Or is this a no-go?
My hub actually bought me this Ann Taylor dress for my birthday back in October (along with a few other goodies – I’m so spoiled!). Honestly, he has better shopping skills than I do! It has a cool zipper on the back that adds a little fun to this otherwise simple shift dress. I really love that it can be dressed up or down, so it’s something I can wear year round.
The necklace is from Charles Emerson Designs, and I’m slightly obsessed with it! The clutch is not mine yet, but it’s on my Christmas list. 😉 I’ll probably just use my black snakeskin for the party this Saturday night.
So what do you think, should I wear this coral number or should I stay in the LBD safe zone? I’m packing my bags for Cincinnati tonight, so if you could weigh in before then that would be so wonderful! If you want to know what I choose follow me on instagram – Carmel_ourfifthhouse. I know you’ll be on the edge of your seats waiting to find out. 😉
I’m wearing the necklace either way – make no mistake about that!!
