The Most Perfect Holiday Dress

It is almost astounding to me that the season for Holiday parties is just a few short weeks away. It never fails, whenever I am pressed for time or have a party or get together to go I will stand in front of my closet for a good thirty minutes and will be stricken by that sudden horrid feeling of “I have nothing to wear”.  I feel safe in saying that almost everyone has suffered from the “I have nothing to wear” syndrome.

The only time I feel like I have something to wear to a function or get together is when I stumble upon a dress when I’m not looking for it and reserve it for when the right occasion comes along to wear it. Once I realize that I can finally break out a certain dress for a function I get embarrassingly excited. Ironically whenever I am shopping for a specific event I can never find anything, it is almost like a conspiracy.

To avoid the “I have nothing to wear” feeling I try to plan out my outfit in advance. Another way I avoid that dreading feeling is when I out shopping and come upon a dress I could easily wear on a few occasions I usually buy it. The other night when I was Internet shopping {the best kind of shopping} I came upon this beautiful Alex Bow Dress by Jill Stuart from Anthropologie. How perfect would this dress look paired with a black clutch, black tights, and black heels or if you want to add a pop some metallic heels. I absoutly love the bow and have fallen head over heels for the Alexa Bow Dress.

  7. Yes I agree with you. When you see something which you know you'll enjoy wearing - better get it now, rather than regret and think about it later. :))
