Today's Outfit of the Day features a sleeveless red dress that I made more winter appropriate for a Christmas party that I hosted. I paired the dress with dark accessories and some festive red ornament earrings.
I fell in love with dress when I first saw it because of the unique neckline. The collar folds over "ascot-style"and is accented with silver lined, shiny black buttons. It has a band to cinch in the waist with more black buttons on the sides. It's a very soft, comfortable material and even has pockets!
To make it a little more appropriate for this time of year, I wore a black blouse with sheer sleeves underneath and black polka-dotted tights. This is a great way to transition summer pieces into the wintertime (don't forget a heavy coat if you're going out, of course!)
For shoes, I wore lace black pumps, which I thought complimented the patterned tights nicely.
For my usual arm candy, I wore my rose gold Michael Kors watch, the Silver Swan bracelet from Jewelmint and a bow bracelet from Shoplately. I'm also wearing a rose gold criss-cross ring.
It wouldn't be a Christmas party without some festive earrings. I chose these red ornament ones to continue the color theme of the dress.
