Putting on the Ritz

Dress: Ted Baker London / Purse: Kate Spade, old / Heels: Cole Haan / Earrings: Lulu Frost for J.Crew, sold out

I lovingly refer to this dress as the “minus-ten-pounds dress”, the “Spanx dress”, or even the “scuba suit dress”… but not because I have to lose ten pounds to wear it, I have to wear Spanx underneath it, or I could go scuba diving in it (actually, that last one is still up for debate). This dress is like suction. As you zip in (with the exposed zipper!), this dress just pulls everything in to make one, concise little package of awesome (aka you in the dress).

I love the embellished neckline and the cap-sleeves… in addition to the slimming cut of the dress! This dress would be perfect to wear to a New Year’s Eve party or even to a winter wedding (black to a wedding? Is that allowed?).

As tonight is Christmas Eve, I would like to take the opportunity to wish all that celebrate a very, very Merry Christmas! I hope you each have a wonderful holiday, filled with family, friends, caroling, and all of your favorite holiday foods.
