I don’t know about you but my holiday events never require full on sequin dresses or fur coats which leaves me to seriously question who in the world is buying these things? I do realize that I’m not exactly a socialite and that my idea of a night out is to the movies, but where are these people going? And more importantly… why am I not invited?
Maybe these feelings stem from the fact that as a child I always wanted to carry around one of those fur muffs. Ya know the ones that slightly resemble the death of a pomeranian dog on your hands? Yea, those. That was until I grew up and realized no one actually carries fur muffs around the holidays, or ever for that matter. And as much as I love, and I mean love, Christmas movies. I have to blame them for their trickery in fashion and magical singing and dancing and white fluffy snowy Christmas mornings. But where’s the realism in all this? Where’s the image of families overeating and needing a nap by 4pm? Where is the image of my dad half asleep on the couch or of people wearing t-shirts…in the Midwest… in mid December. Bah humbug, global warming! This my friend is the holiday that I’ve for better or worse gotten accustomed to which I suppose totally explains why no one has ever made a movie about it…but I digress.
Though I do tend to see more sparkle topped cookies than sparkle dresses this time of year, it doesn’t mean that I’m deprived of the standard one or two holiday events in which non socialites attend. So despite my scrooge like rant it’s time that I wrap this post up with what is bound to be the only reason you have come this far… a holiday outfit socially acceptable enough for non socialites. And here ya go:
