Thinking of Christmas, you obviously reach for traditional colors of red or green, gold and silver. For a more sophisticated choice, I selected this merlot colored knit dress for Catina. It was perfect for our photo shoot at a local winery.
The body-hugging knit accentuated her figure, but was flattering and comfortable. The side ruching at the waist and sleeves added interest and detail. The dress was accented with a gold zipper detail at the neckline, so several gold chains and a spikey gold bracelet were the perfect accessories.
For a modern edgy look we added black and metallic peep toe booties by Wild Rose. Like many of my pieces, I plan how I would style these in a different way. These would look great with rolled up skinny jeans and a black leather (or faux) leather jacket. Lastly, an elegant gold and black satin structured bag finished off her look.Being festive can be understated, and doesn’t have to always include glitter or sequins. The color of this dress gave a off a warm glow that embodies the holiday spirit. And for less than the cost of a bottle of wine, this outfit shows that Goodwill is a great place to shop for special occasion outfits.
