I have been dying to share this long-sleeve red velvet dress with you all since it arrived a couple weeks back. It’s the perfect dress for holiday parties or, if you’re looking ahead, for Valentine’s Day! You can never go wrong with a red dress and the silhouette / structure of this one is just so flattering for everybody.
This dress is figure hugging without being clingy, and the draping across the stomach makes it feel even less bodycon / more comfortable. The tulip hem is also a flattering shape that elongates your legs! As you can see the dress also has subtle shoulder pads giving it the 80’s throwback vibe that is so trendy right now. I should also add that the dress is under $60 and fits true to size. There is also a similar v-neck version.
To accessorize this look, I added a pair of clear/crystal heels and crystal snowflake earrings. I decided to go with a sleek pony and classic red lip to polish off the look. I wore this dress on Saturday to Alex’s office Christmas party! It was the perfect dress for the occasion and we had a really great time. It helped that it was held at a restaurant Alex and I already love, Brix & Mortar.
This dress is clearly great for holiday parties, but like I said above I think it would be great for Valentine’s Day as well. I already told Alex this is what I’m going to wear for our Valentine’s Day dinner lol. (Outfit repeater for the win!)
I can’t believe it’s already halfway through December. I feel like the days are flying by and I still have so many holiday things I want to do! Alex and I are having a Christmas party this weekend which I am really excited about (but also not prepared for at all lol). This week I need to find time to solidify the cocktails and recipes I want to make. If you have any holiday cocktail recipes you are loving at the moment, please send them my way!
Have a great day and do something fun (and festive!) for yourself today <3
