One of the things I love about the Christmas season is works dos. Both Colin’s company and my work have fun parties that are suitable for dressing up. We live in a very casual town so there aren’t a lot of opportunities to truly dress up.
Both of the dresses that I wore are from ASOS. The first one that I wore to my work party I wasn’t too sure about when I saw it – it’s not a color that I gravitate toward, but it was on a super clearance so I thought I’d give it a go. I love it!
It’s super comfortable, easy to wear and has a lot of whimsy. I loved wearing the vintage style, three-quarter sleeve jacket with it as well. I felt very early 60s glam. The brooch is blue aurora borealis and totally gorgeous.

The next outfit I wore to Colin’s work party and I am so totally sad that I didn’t take more photos of it. I don’t know how it slipped my mind, but there you go. I’ll get more photos when I wear it next. I feel like it’s a dress that I can wear not just to fancy events.
This is one of those dresses that I saw and absolutely fell in love with. The silhouette, the fabric, the whole design. I was smitten. It wasn’t particularly cheap, though not outrageous either, but I bided my time until ASOS had a sale and then I snatched that baby up. I am so glad I did. This is a garment that truly brings me joy.
Sadly, in this photo that was taken with my phone, I look like I’m in a lot of pain and you can’t see my amazing shoes! And apparently Colin has a light shining out of the top of his head. Nonetheless, I love this dress!
