Velvet and Jesus…..

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!! I don’t know about you but, I am ready to celebrate! Christmas is in 4 sleeps and I find myself longing for time to slow down! I want to savor all of the sweetness of this season. I have almost finished my Christmas shopping. Giving gifts is the most fun. In our home we have a birthday celebration for Jesus on Christmas Day. So, it’s only proper that I wear an amazing dress to the birthday party of the one who created….everything!

I have been in love with velvet ever since I was a little girl. I can remember wearing a velvet dress, white tights and patent leather mary jane shoes every Christmas. Maybe that’s why I chose this little number. Nothing screams holiday like crushed velvet.

I plucked this Golden Hi-Low Velvet Wrap Dress from the fancy pants designers of Lulus. Besides the fact that it’s absolutely adorable it’s also affordable! You can get this cutie for under $60!

A good shoe can give you all of the confidence in the world. Although I love a black patent leather pump, I am going to give my self a standing ovation for scooping these sparkly ladies off of the clearance shelf of H&M during the summer. I payed $9 for shoes that have me feeling like the ever fabulous Carrie Bradshaw. Little girl Wendy would be proud. 🙂

Christmas is definitely an appropriate time to indulge in great fabrics, sparkly shoes and fun makeup. So, this is your chance! Velvet is a hot fashion trend currently and pretty much everything is covered in glitter. So, head out to your fave stores and leave with only the most Properly Stylish items.
