First Holiday Outfit of the Season

 

I know, I know. Bright yellow lace is not what you’d typically consider holiday party attire.

But I REALLY wanted to wear this dress ONE MORE TIME before the weather officially changed to winter.

Last weekend, the Torpedo Arts Factory in Alexandria, Virginia hosted their annual holiday arts party.

This former ammunitions warehouse (yes, it was used to build torpedoes during World War II) is now a giant arts center, where painters, sculptors, and craftsmen display their creations.

And this party seemed like the perfect place to wear this unusual color rather than more traditional red or green.

I figured that a black leather jacket and black suede boots would help transition the dress to something less spring garden party and more festive and winter appropriate. I actually like the way the whole look came out.

Now, I can officially retire this dress until Spring!

 

Are you a traditionalist when it comes to Holiday party wear? Or like me, do you try to get as much wear as you can out of a spring or summer favorite?
