Lace Dress


Dress: Forever 21, Tights: Hue, Booties: Xhileration, Bracelet: Target
This year I was intent on finding a lace dress to wear for Christmas. I was looking more for a loose fitted dress but came across this dress at Forever 21 for only fifteen dollars and tried it on and I loved it! I usually don't wear skin tight clothing but the lacy detail on the top of the dress made me want to give it a chance. The only thing I didn't realize is that you would be able to see the tights line through my dress on my stomach, but oh well, not a big deal. With my favorite booties and a pair of sheer lace tights I decided this was appropriate enough for Christmas. Nobody else in my family gets really dressed up for Christmas but if there's an excuse for me to dress up, I go for it! For some reason, a lot of these pictures made the dress look like there's a brownish tint to it, but there isn't. How did you guys dress up?

  35. I LOVE this outfit!!! I think the tightness of the dress works because it's pretty demure otherwise - what a classic cut and I love the lace too! And that coat - oh gosh, I'm obsessed!! You look fantastic!
