Winter Wedding Reception

Here is a look I wore to a wedding reception that was held at a hotel/casino in the wintertime. I think this type of look would be good for Xmas/Holiday/New Year's parties as it has some metallic shine to it and a pop of gold. I always feel like I'm holiday party-ready if I've got a bit of gold eyeshadow in my look!

I like to wear this particular style of dress to parties where one will be sitting down for dinner or having food. It is form fitting (but not too tight) with a sheer drape over top of it. It still shows your shape but the drape makes it a bit more forgiving and comfortable for when one is sitting down and eating lots ;) 

Got any holiday parties coming up? What are you wearing?


  1. Love the shimmer in your eyeshadow. Also those boots are just to die for. Hope you had a fun time. :)


  2. You two look adorable. Which might not be as manly as he's looking for, but it's true.

    I like your thought process that gold makes it festive. I don't have any parties to go to or anything, but I may just fancy myself up one of these days to hang out with my dog or something.

  3. I love that dress! I agree that those types of dresses are more comfortable for sitting and standing and socializing for long periods of time.

  4. You look gorgeous - your skin looks perfect!

  5. You look fantastic! And I really love the shoes :D.

    I have a question, or better said, I am looking for advice. My foundation is from Maybelline. But I am thinking about trying another one. Could you recomend me any? I don´t mind about the label. But I want to try another. Not very expensive, please ;).


  6. I love the gold in this look...so pretty!

  7. You guys both look really nice! Your makeup is so pretty, I love gold and purple together! That lip color looks like the perfect "My Lips But Better" shade, they almost look bare. I only went to my work holiday party this year, but I wore a sort of 40's looking wiggle dress in burgundy with black trim around the neckline and keyhole detail at the neckline. I got it at Kohl's... go figure. I was pretty excited to have a chance to dress up, but probably drank a lot more than I should have at a work party. Oops. I had to go to work the next day and that was UNPLEASANT.

  8. Wow look at you ! Love your outfit here ;)
    Also the look is gorgeous and yes i agree , a pop of gold gives a festive feeling !

  9. What a gorgeous look, and I love your outfit!

  10. Thanks for your answer! I will try this one :).

  11. You look gorgeous! Love the purples you're wearing.
