I actually can’t believe that holiday party time is back again… I mean, how has it been a year since the LAST time we did this? BUT on the bright side, I’m really excited about all of the holiday treats, drinks and presents! Holiday parties are the perfect excuse to dress up and get fancy (or go the other direction completely and wear an ugly sweater…both are great). This year, I’m opting to be EXTRA at my holiday parties. I don’t want to wear the same red or black dress I’ve had in my closet for years. This season has so many cute trends going on that it’s pretty much impossible to not want to buy something new and amazing, right?
I found this velvet jumpsuit at Express and instantly fell in love. I mean, LOOK at it! Isn’t it a dream?? I think I was actually drooling when I picked it up and brought it to the dressing room. Simple, but also completely over the top, in my opinion, on top of being something I normally wouldn’t wear. But when else can you pull off a velvet jumpsuit with a super low v-neck? Just casually wear it to the office or to get groceries? Umm, no. Please don’t. But Christmas parties? ABSOLUTELY!
I paired it with some nude strappy heels, which I think balance it well. The girl on the Express site is wearing black slides, but I think the softer nude shoe looks better. But up to you, girl! I love how the hem is cropped, so your shoes are definitely on display when you’re wearing this (along with your ta-ta’s…this V is DEEP).
Express.com is sold out of most of the sizes in THIS pink color, but you can probably find sizes in your local store and pick it up. My local mall had a ton of sizes left, so it all depends! PLUS, this is 50% off right now, so get it while you can, my friend! If you can’t find your size, they have an amazing Red color online that’s a little more stocked (and I say a little because there are many 2 more sizes available than in the pink….).
Forever21.com also has a very similar jumpsuit right now, also in a blush pink! (on the left) / Express version (what I’m wearing) on the right!
And in case you’re looking for some more ideas for your holiday party, I’ve put together a bunch of them here! Happy shopping, boo!
