I’m over at Michaela Noelle Designs today sharing some holiday attire inspiration. Nope, I’m not veering into the direction of fashion blogging, simple trying something new : ]
Holiday work parties are a bit trickier to dress for than a standard holiday party (particularly an ugly sweater party). I try to go for a look that says I care but I don’t care that much. Yes, that’s girl speak (e.g. I like him but I don’t like like him).
Thanks to the Internet, I was able to find images of all my finds which was kinda shocking because I got most of the items at a discount store. I picked up the shoes from Payless after I had stupidly found another pair I liked, thought about them as I perused the rest of the store, then returned to find them gone. I’m a bit of a veteran discount shopper, how did I commit this rookie mistake?! The tights and dress I picked up from TJ Max. The dress is one of my favorite dress brands, London Times, and I found it on the clearance rack. The above photo makes the top part look more ivory but in person it’s more of a champagne color.
Shoes from Payless – $20
London Times dress – $20
Chinese Laundry tights – $3 (it was a two pack for $6)
I don’t usually spring for a full outfit but I reasoned that I could use the pumps for work and I wore the same outfit to The Hubs’s pass in review (i.e. boot camp graduation). And $20 for a dress!? Why not!
Do you change out of your office attire for holiday work functions? Did I totally get jipped for not winning the rad hat competition or what?
