I wore this dress for Christmas, which was a slightly inappropriate choice for the weather and dress code. I can’t help it; I like to dress up – especially for the holidays, when everything formal seems a little more acceptable. My Aunt Nikki and I found this dress while shopping at Beacon’s Closet (naturally) and we both knew it was meant to be. When it fit me perfectly, I knew it had to be my Christmas dress.

New Year’s, however…what will I wear for that? I didn’t pack nearly enough clothing, so I’m reduced to making my outfits for the weekend. I don’t know if I have the time to make a dress for tomorrow night but I guess I’ll figure it out as I go along. I bought a couple of dresses for consideration. We’ll see what I end up wearing.

What are your new year’s resolutions? I haven’t narrowed mine down yet (I tend to go overboard) but Jeremy sent me a nifty little link that I think you all might enjoy.

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

  1. i love dressing up too (mostly because i never have a good enough reason to…which means i end up overdressing for any occasion that's slightly above casual. but whatever!) πŸ˜‰

    love the holiday dress (and i'm obsessed with bow belts haha). also, i think i need a petticoat now.

  2. what an amazing dress! I absoloutely adore the open back, and the colour of the skirt.

    I know what you mean about overdressing. I went to a houseparty the other day in a blue satin dress with far too much cleavage. But dammit, I hadn't gotten to wear it for ages!

  3. I have tons of resolutions, but it makes me feel better not to say them or think them or write them down or even think of them as a resolution. This year, I'm going to just try and think of everything I've done and have no expectations for next year!

    Your dress looks so pretty,especially the black mesh and sweetheart neckline.
