Ahhh, it's the most wonderful time of the year!
You know, CHRISTMAS! I honestly cannot believe it's almost here. It can be a pretty stressful and busy time but one of my favourite things is dressing up for holiday parties!
Ironically enough, I didn't have that many holiday parties to attend this year but I did go see the Nutcracker the other night with my girlfriends for the first time and it was magical (as corny as that sounds). Seriously though, I shed a tear watching the Sugar Plum Fairy solo... I have such a love for dance and the arts and it just got to me! Life long dream watching that! Anyway, this is what I wore to the ballet and it put me in the holiday spirit!
This skirt is just fabulous, I don't think I've ever seen a faux leather (or real leather) embroidered skirt. The detailing is so intricate and perfect for the holidays. You can totally dress this down with sneakers and a sweater too! Oh and if you're thinking "damn, Mel must be cold" and yes are correct, I was frozen BUT... bless Calgary for being SLIGHTLY warmer this week! Seriously, the two weeks we had of absolutely freezing weather was NOT fun.
Happy almost Christmas!
