"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): Look, Charlie, let's face it. We all know that Christmas is a big commercial racket. It's run by a big eastern syndicate, you know.

Look, Charlie, let's face it. We all know that Christmas is a big commercial racket. It's run by a big eastern syndicate, you know.

(That's a quote from Lucy, in A Charlie Brown Christmas, FYI)

It's Christmas Eve! Which is a bigger deal in my family than Christmas Day. We head off to IL to see the extended fam, including 8 aunts and uncles and about 20 cousins. It's crowded and loud and usually involves jello shots and white elephant gifts.  We do a million appetizers and desserts instead of a "real" meal which is awesome. It also generally means my grandma will demand we all sing the 12 Days of Christmas, but everyone's had too much wine and no one remembers how many drummers are drumming anyway and it is the funniest thing ever. So here's my Christmas dress:

Dress - secondhand vintage from Everyday People (consignment store)
Sweater - Marc by Marc Jacobs
Tights - Target
Shoes - Unlisted by Kenneth Cole, hand-me-downs from sister

Oh yes, look at the velvet and rhinestones... it can't get more festive than this:
I feel like I had a version of this dress when I was about 6. The red velvet Christmas dress, a classic!

So Merry Christmas if you celebrate it, Happy Weekend if you don't!

jello shots, desserts and too much wine?!
Your family version of Christmas is much more than mine.

This IS the perfect Christmas dress! Love it! It reminds me of the velvety Christmas dresses that the little girls in my class wear.
