I mean… a lace LBD is always a good idea if you ask me. And the sleeves on this Lulus number make it even more fun! Fun fact – we snapped these photos on what might have been the windiest day I’ve ever experienced. Once we were done, Christian emailed me a state-wide weather warning about “extreme wind conditions,” and I couldn’t stop laughing! I don’t even want to tell you how many photos we snapped to get a few without my hair in its own personal tornado. #Memories.

But let’s talk about this dress. You can’t go wrong with black lace, and I think the bell sleeves on this dress add so much interest and flirtiness. I wish it was a top so I could wear it ALL the time! When wearing something short like this, I like a high necklace so I don’t show off too much skin. I don’t normally wear short dresses, but this dress made me want to give it a shot and thanks to Vincent’s hilarious commentary, I think we totally made the windstorm work!

You can see more holiday-perfect dresses here, and where do I begin? Can I have one of each? I also think this lace LBD would look equally beautiful with OTK boots and a fur scarf or shawl, but I wanted to pair it with a classic strappy heels for a cocktail look. I also think a draped leather jacket or black sleeveless vest (like this one) would look so great!

Do you guys have any formal holiday parties this month? That includes NYE! New Years always sneaks up after Christmas and I’m left thinking… “what am I going to wear!” If you need a cute dress, Lulus has been one of my go-to spots for years.

Lastly, I’ve been placed in a poll for “Favorite OC Blogger” by Locale Magazine. I’d really appreciate it if you would vote for me! You can vote once day (although I certainly don’t expect anyone to do that). Thanks so much for reading! XO –
