Today, I’ve got holiday dressing on my mind and wanted to step outside our little black dress box and opt for another hue.  Deep green definitely says holiday, but in such a lovely and sophisticated way.  And the color looks gorgeous on everyone, especially redheads!

Green Lace Dress • Similar Clutch • Earrings • Necklace • Shoes

I’ve always had great luck with the selection of dresses by Eliza J and this one is no exception.  They are always classy and well made with attention to detail. I also love that she makes dresses in petites so they don’t need any alterations.

Dress Fit : Eliza J dresses typically fit TTS.  I usually wear 0P or 2P, depending on the chest.  In this dress I’m wearing 2P. 

The intricate lacework on this dress is stunning and I love how it’s finished off with the fringe detail at the sleeve and skirt.  I kept the necklace simple and let the double star earrings be the “star”.  Aren’t they fun?!

The body is fully lined in black and I’m so glad she didn’t line it in a nude color!   They black is much more elegant.

I kicked it up a notch with leopard heels, but you could go for black, nude or even a contrasting pop of color if that’s more your style.

I definitely think you’ll turn heads at a Christmas party or any holiday function you wear this to.  And bonus, you’ll be quite comfortable because it’s a fit and flare style.

Is there anyone out there who wants to be a little more daring?!  I’m always crazy for a jumpsuit and actually tried this one on with Ali-Shaun, but the photos in the dressing room didn’t do it justice, so I wanted to wait and show you here!

As soon as I put it on, I was smitten because the velvet is so luxuriously soft and I’m crazy for the deep shade of green.

Jumpsuit Fit: It fits TTS, but because I’m so short, I had to alter the length about an inch.  I’m wearing size XS.

Ah, check out that keyhole back!  Isn’t that a fun detail?!  I wore my fave strapless bra and just pushed it down a little further in the back so it wouldn’t show, but you could also tie the belt up higher so more of your back is covered.

And what about these fun earrings?!  I think they really complete this outfit and take it in a playful direction.

The jumpsuit is easy to wear with a small keyhole neck and tie belt that you can easily adjust.

This would be a great option for dancing the night away!  Does anyone do that anymore?!  I remember the days!  Also, with both this jumpsuit and the green lace dress, a leather jacket would be chic and keep you warm.
