The Lady In The Red Dress

Hey everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the warmer weather. I miss the cooler December temperatures of last year. It doesn’t really feel like Christmas this year.  My Christmas party for my job was last Saturday. After ordering two dresses online that were two small, I was in a last minute tizzy to find another outfit. 

I headed to Lane Bryant to get supportive bras and ended up discovering the perfect party dress! 

Purse/ Jewelry- Torrid, Faux Fur- Cato, Dress- Lane Bryant, Shoes: Payless

This dress reminded me that love at first sight is a real feeling! I felt like a fifties, glam doll. I pinned the chest area to prevent any wardrobe malfunctions. I am wearing a 24. The ribbon accentuates my waist line and the body adds a feminine flare. 

My style is classy with an edgy flare. I like detailing and patterns so the lace and red color provided me with the POP that I wanted. 
You know when you’ve found the one! Everything just feels right! Putting this dress on was a match made in clothing heaven! 
Here are more pictures from the dinner! 

My bestie since the 6th grade joined me at the party! 

Dress: Dressbarn 

Doesn’t she look lovely? Maribel was really nervous about her make up because it was the first time she’s worn something with a dramatic eye and noticeable lip. I think she looked superb! 

I definitely felt like a queen that night. 

The lighting was behind us but we still looked radiant! I love to slay with my best friend! 

I wasn’t the only lady rocking a red lace dress this year! We all looked lovely! Shout out to Hilary and Camryn! 

Shout out to one of my favorite readers, Teri! She always reads my blog and tells me how much she more comfortable she is in the dressing room due to my confidence. She’s a firecracker! I’m appreciative to everyone who takes the time to read my work. I bare my heart so openly and honestly. I’m glad that my journey has inspired or helped others in any capacity. I don’t blog for likes. I blog to help others, particularly women. The women who don’t look like the Victoria Secret or Complex magazine models. I’m on the outside of society’s beauty construct. I’m repping for the people who feel too tall or too small, too this or too that. I want you to be confident in you!  Thanks to Teri for making me proud of my work. Sometimes I feel like I’m wasting my time, when no one follows me, or shares my links, when I don’t see comments. I had a friend send me a photo of her in a swimsuit after I posted my swimsuit blog. That keeps me motivated. I’m actually doing something worthwhile. 
I’ve never been a pretty girl. I’ve always been awkward, overlooked, and underwhelming or at least I’ve felt that way. It’s nice to feel beautiful. I received so many compliments that night. 

Hope you all have a Happy Christmas/ Holiday season. Remember to cherish the people you’re giving gifts the rest of the year. 

Side note: excuse my swollen feet, my feet don’t do heels well! I’m sticking to flats next time! 
Tell me how you liked my holiday style! 
What did you dawn to your holiday parties? 
Can’t wait to hear from you! 
Until next time,
-Nora
