Hello Hello!! So obviously it is the holiday season and my work had their holiday party last weekend. Now dressing for a work holiday party is always a balancing act, more for women then men. I want to go in my closet and find something amazing, that is dress but not evening gown dressy, stylish and fashionable but also still appropriate for work. I try to not buy a new dress to wear for this because it is just once a year. Also I have to remember what I wore last year and try not to wear that again. Last year I wore a dress that was partially backless and I thought I pushed the bar too far, at least for me.
I love this dress, I have owned it for awhile just have not had many events to wear it to. This dress is called a wiggle dress which I love, it just makes me feel like the dress is meant for dancing which I absolutely love. (It is currently unavailable in most sizes, if you absolutely love it, ASOS has a lot of these dress I would look up wiggle dress on the search bar. They are UK sizes which was confusing to me when I bought this but I am wearing a UK 10 hopefully that helps, I typically wear a US 4).
So what does this dress do for me that a lot of other similar dresses do not? What I love is that the top of this dress is a little lose. It has a little more volume to it and has these big sleeves. Then the dress cinches at my waist, in doing this it makes my waist look really tiny. I do not have a naturally small waist, its more straight with a slight curve in, so if I just wore a tight dress it doesn’t look very small. But with the dress having more fabric on top, cinches at the waist and then the skirt is tight, really highlights my waist.
To brighten up the outfit I wore it with these red heels, I would link them for you but my parents bought them for me when they were in Italy. Probably one of the best presents I have been given. They are actually remarkably comfortable. Then lastly, I added this necklace that is just so sparkley.
