Happy Christmas

I hope everyone had wonderful holidays, and enjoyed a relaxing day off today. I'm in full on sloth mode, all I want to do is eat cookies and watch Christmas movies... it does not seem like I should be back at work on Tuesday!

My family does the big Italian Christmas Eve, and I like to glitz it up, so I got this slinky chevron sequined cocktail dress at TJ Maxx for $13.

I also got a new pair of dot tights and then immediately got a run in them. Which is what happened to the first two pairs of dot tights I bought on the first day I wore them, so clearly the universe does not want me to wear swiss dots on my legs.

It was great to see all of my family, and get stuffed on tons of wonderful food, and of course get presents! There were some great things under my tree this year!

Wow! Amazing dress for $13?! So festive and sexy! I LOVE your fur-kid!

Alex Elizabeth said...

I love this dress! The long chevrons are almost like stripes :) I have such a hard time with sheer tights, too. I always get a few pulls on the first wear, and by the second they're totally unwearable.

Merry Christmas!

Glad to hear you had such a great weekend! I too, was definitely in "Sloth" mode all day Monday and I'm not looking forward to returning to work. Anyway, I love this dress! I can't believe it's from TJ Max.

And the picture of the Christmas tree at night (with your cute little dog) looks so cozy and inviting!

Anne said...

Yeah, being back at work today is rough. So obviously I'm reading blogs now to ease myself back into work :)

I love your Christmas Eve outfit! That'd also be great for New Year's Eve, or pretty much any other festive occasion.

Style Journey said...

Great dress and pretty tree. Chloe looks pretty happy sitting there on her pillow. Yep, going back to work sucks. I can't think!

This outfit is gorgeous! I'm greek, so my family also has the huge Christmas Eve get together. This year I stayed in NY, so it was a bit weird to get used to! The decorations look gorgeous as well!

you look great in this glitzy dress. Your pup looks adorable wrapped in that bow.

Lorena said...

Nice pick for 13.00 bucks !
and my little Chloeee she could not be cuter.

Gray Skies said...

I always get runs in my sheer tights almost instantly, but it's usually my own fault for wearing a bracelet or a necklace that somehow catches on them as I pull them on.

I just can't get over how many awesome things you find at TJ Maxx! That dress is gorgeous.

Ashley said...

Positively dreamy photos, darling. Seriously. That one with the tree looks like a painting.

My pair of dot tights did that too, first day. I've been wearing them for over a year though, runs be damned.

Ali said...

Work them new dot tights! My dot tights have been destroyed ahaha.. nothing a little christmas money can't fix! I adore that dress on you. It just hugs you in all the right places and is so holiday chic! Hope you had a good one, my dear! :D

Shea said...

That dress is stunning on you!! I had good luck with my dotted tights until recently--I was greeted at the door by my overly eager dog, who ripped a hole in them. So much for luck.

geetabix said...

Love the dress and the jewellery and your Christmas tree is beautiful.

SassyUptownChic said...

Great dress girl! I have put a run in so many tights. I hate that. LOL I always make sure I have a spare. The clutch looks great. Glad you like it. Enjoy!
