Christmas Eve Dress

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas holiday is dressing up for Christmas Eve. For as long as I can remember, it has been a tradition to dress up for church and then come back home to a Christmas party hosted by my parents. I look forward to finding a festive outfit each year and when I saw this dress, I knew it would be perfect for the occasion.

Dress: Donna Morgan | Pumps: old {similar HERE} | Earrings: Panacea | Clutch: old, love THIS with the oversized bow! | Bracelet: Elizabeth Cole, no longer available {love THIS personalized style} | Ring: David Yurman | Sunglasses: Prada | Lipstick: #10

I started my search for a dress back in the beginning of November, giving myself plenty of time. I had an idea of what I wanted {and would you believe this was exactly what I pictured!} but I couldn't find it anywhere. I was searching every possible site I could think of, then Modcloth {unfortunately, it's sold out here, but I did find it available in purple HERE} came to mind. I had ordered a dress from there a few years ago and it was WAY too short. Since then, I really haven't looked at their site much. But I figured it was worth a try since I was running out of stores. I clicked on the holiday section and one of the first results that appeared was this gorgeous burgundy dress. I instantly fell in love with the fit and flare silhouette and the lace floral overlay. And the illusion neckline and sheer panels on the sleeves just added to the many gorgeous details of this dress. And with it's midi length, I figured I was pretty safe in ordering it :)

As for size, I ordered my normal size and it fit well -- I could have probably gone down a size and been alright since it was a little big around the waist. Although, it did fit well across my shoulders. I accessorized with black heels, clutch and fun tassel earrings. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about this year's Christmas Eve outfit and I can't wait to wear it again on Saturday. Do you have a favorite holiday tradition?
