Christmas Eve Dress
Merry Christmas Eve! For years now, I’ve been trying to find the perfect Christmas Eve dress. Something that is both dressy, but casual and comfortable. As much as I love this vintage Christmas dress, it’s not exactly what I’m looking for on Christmas Eve. Michael’s family has a tradition of going to Nana’s on Christmas Eve and eating a feast. It’s a tradition I’m lucky to be a part of now. There’s every food imaginable, from shrimp, to pizza. With so much food, I really need a dress that stretches and is comfortable. I had seen this dress from J.Crew but wasn’t convinced it would look good on me. I was also waiting to see if it would go on sale after the holiday season for a major discount. However, after seeing it on Emily Godoy, I was convinced.

In full honesty, I didn’t order this tartan shirred dress until a week before Christmas. I wasn’t sure that it would make it in time to wear for Christmas Eve. (Even though when I ordered it, it said it would). Luckily, I was proven wrong and it came with plenty of time to spare. And it really is the perfect Christmas Eve dress. The stretch is great, the length is perfect for petites, and the tartan is exactly what I think when I think Christmas. I’m so glad it came in time to wear for Christmas. I know I’ll be wearing it for many Christmas Eve’s to come.

Very cute! Looks just darling on you. I have a tailored flannel shirt in a similar style and love it for the holiday season. Though I no longer have family holidays, it's still nice to have a pretty dress in ones closet in case a dinner invite pops up. My issue is the opposite side of the spectrum. I am tall and almost anything "off the rack" needs to be altered. Typically I buy a size larger to give me enough to fabric to make any alterations and possibly an accessory to go with.
Enjoy those family traditions! And don't be afraid to start some of your own too.
