OMG! I seriously still cannot get over that it is December already.  Where in the hell did the year go??  With the holiday season comes holiday parties!   Oh the work holiday parties, the open bar…last year at my work holiday party I spilled an entire glass of red wine on my lap.  Thank gawd I had a black dress on, that stain came out like a champ, or maybe its still there and I just can’t see it.  Nah, its gone, oxi clean works like a freakin champ.

Back on track, everyone needs a dress for their holiday parties…because if the holidays aren’t a time to dress up then what is?  A little black dress, with sleeves, is so purfect (aren’t holiday kittens the cutest) for any party. Pair it with a festive red pump or a black over-the-knee boot.  Then pair each of those with either a nude lip or bold red lip and then a smokey eye and your in business.  Or do a cut-crease and slice a mother with that edge (too intense? sorrrrry!).

I paired my little black dress with a wine colored short bootie or you can kill every single guy in town with an over the knee heel.  I will want to steal them right off of your feet, I will contain myself but I may look like an idiot trying to do so.  You can’t be mad, because I did just warn you. Add a chunky neutral necklace and a thin gold bangle and you are in business (yes, I said it twice, I like the term).  Like serious business…it’s like when you walk in the spot, this is what you see, everybody stops and they staring at you.  Hahaha! See what I did there?  Seriously dying right now.  Hey I have to find myself funny, even if no one else does.

So get all dolled up and go be all social and have a drink and be fancy. I’ll have a drink with you because mama likes her glass of pinot.
