Perfect for the Holidays : The Lace Midi Dress

Happy Monday! I can't believe how quickly November is flying by. With the holidays fast-approaching, I thought I'd share the perfect dress for all your holiday occasions. You've seen this trend sweeping through blogs, magazines etc. over the last couple months and I decided to give it a go myself. I am usually not a "midi" length type of person because I feel like it can be unflattering, but I love the way the lace overlay is see through so it's not necessarily cutting you off at the middle of your calf. Plus, the neckline & waist are flattering on just about anyone!

This dress is perfect for so many occasions - Christmas parties, cocktail parties, weddings, a night out at the theatre, fancy girl's night, fancy date night, New Year's Eve, the list goes on and on. I paired it with my favorite leather jacket to make it a little bit more edgy / casual, and you could also put a fur stole with it, a cozy wrap, or even a blazer.

The Self-Portrait version of this dress is a major splurge at $500, but lucky for you there are SO many lookalikes out there, like the one I'm wearing. I've found this dress at all budget points, in SO many colors (I especially love the burgundy for the holidays!), at different retailers; ranging from under $25, up to $100! So if you've been wanting to try out this trend, I've got them all linked at the bottom of the post.

Happy Holiday Shopping!
Later this week on the blog, I'll be sharing my holiday decor, favorites from Magnolia's Hearth & Home line, a Like to Know it tutorial for those who've been asking, and what I'm wearing for Thanksgiving. Stay tuned!
