It’s hard to believe that Christmas Eve is officially a week away! I cannot wait for some much needed celebration, rest and relaxation with my family. This last week before Christmas calls for festive fashion, whether at work, for a dinner date or for a holiday party, which is why I’m sharing this fun, vintage-inspired look. I’ve worn red a lot lately, but there’s something about a red dress that just feels like the holidays. ASOS is my absolute go-to when it comes to dresses (they have over 11,000 options online!), and I found this long sleeve red number at the online store this summer, so I was so excited to take it out for this look. I’m usually drawn to items that have a little bit something special or unique, and the sleeves on this dress drew me in. Featuring a slit in the back that goes up to the elbows, the sleeves give the appearance of a cape dress from the front. Here’s some other little red dresses ASOS offers that offer something unexpected:

Since it’s a bit chilly outside, I paired some sparkly black tights and gloves to keep warm. My boyfriend’s mom has an amazing collection of vintage beaded clutches and I fell in love with this red, white and blue patterned one featuring the most darling little tassel. It added just the right amount of dazzle to the look.

Fair-well xx,
