Greetings, Dandy lovers!
I am INCREDIBLY excited about the holiday season. (I can’t believe that Christmas is less than three weeks away, when did that happen?!) Now I realize that based on previous posts, I may come off as a bit of a curmudgeon (dare I say, downright Grinch-like), but on the contrary, I’m quite the holiday nut! I tuned in to the holiday station at the beginning of November, and I have a collection of quirky nutcrackers that are displayed on my mantle alongside some homemade stockings (thanks, Mom!) The best part is, my nephew Rhett is finally old enough to eat solid foods, so I’m really looking forward to making our first batch of Christmas cookies together this year to keep the family tradition alive.
Regardless of your feelings on this time of year, one thing I think we can all look forward to are the holiday parties! I love planning outfits, and I think I’ve found the perfect ensemble to wear to the Dandy party on December 15 (my first party of the season, woo!)

This exquisite shift dress is guaranteed to make any Grinch’s heart grow three sizes. I’ve been channeling 60s yeye vibes lately, so I was immediately drawn to the silver accents and dramatic, sheer bell sleeves that provide such beautiful movement. The red shoes are a subtle nod to the holiday season, and a classic black beret makes every outfit immediately more chic, so I’m sure to garner a heap of compliments. These garments not only fit the bill for posh partywear but also serve as pieces I can incorporate into my everyday style routine. For outside parties, I’d recommend adding a cute pair of tights and a cozy coat in order to stay warm. I’d also throw in a spiked hot chocolate for good measure.
If you want to see me sporting this look IRL, you can catch me at Dandy’s Holiday party on December 15. I’d love to meet you and fangirl over your outfit. If all else fails, you’ll find me on the dance floor doing my signature holiday move, “The Carlton.” The shindig is from 4-8, and there will be sweet treats from LuLu’s Bakery, a giveaway worth over $350 (say what?!) and a store-wide sale for those of you (ahem, me) who need to finish up some holiday shopping. There are also going to be a few more surprises, but you’ll just have to pop on by to see what they are for yourself 😉
We look forward to seeing you there!
