Dressing Up

Dressing Up
I don't get the opportunity to really dress up very often, but around the Holidays are a few opportunities to indulge in a night out in a dress.  Last weekend, we went to a fundraising event at our daughter's school.  Great time to wear the Gap dress I purchased this fall.  It has a really nice sheen to it and a very big flowy skirt.  I have to admit, I felt like a princess and just wanted to twirl around.

I felt like it was crying out for a little detail, so I added a thin black ribbon to the waist to dress it up even more.  This mimics the black band at the bottom of the dress.  I tied it in the back with a small bow.  You could also use a larger ribbon and tie it to the side or front which would be cute.
The best part about the dress is that it has pockets!  I love a dress with pockets.  When standing and talking a lot as you do at these events, it gives your hands somewhere to rest.
It was a perfect  night and I look forward to wearing it again soon for my husband's Christmas party.  This time, with a wrap to protect from the cold weather.
To life feeling like home!
