What I Really Wore to the Christmas Party

Christmas party

Goodness, I’m sure you’re wondering what I wore to my Christmas party. This is always such a busy time of year, and unfortunately my blog is getting the brunt of it being ignored and all. I do apologize for that that. On Friday I posted two Christmas party outfits, and guess what!? I went with neither. Instead, I pulled out my sparkly holiday dress, and I wore this to the Christmas party. I felt very cute and upbeat. The only drawback that bothered me was the nylons I chose–they were not sheer enough. Also, the lights at the venue were on full brightness, so I kind of wish I would have chosen different sneakers. Oh well… I did feel good though which in turn helped me to have a much better time than last year’s Christmas party. Isn’t it funny how what we wear can have such an effect on how we feel–at least it does for me.

This Christmas party frock was picked up in Bali of all places. Crazy I know, but when we went a few Christmases ago, there was a fantastic mall where I picked up this smashing number for under $15 USD. I had never been into a New Look store, but I can tell you I liked it. Do you have New Look where you live? It’s a South African brand that was new to me. Although we don’t have a New Look in HK, they do deliver here, so that’s more good NEWS!!

What will you be wearing to your Christmas party?
The next Christmas party I attend will be in the jungle of Chang Mai. We head to Thailand this Saturday! I can hardly wait. My sister and her family will be joining us, so it is sure to be a very, very special Christmas this year! And definitely filled with more Christmas parties…. I’ll make sure to keep you updated, but the best place to follow along the fun will be on my Instagram account.

What to Wear to the Christmas Party?

For this year’s Christmas party I am determined to LOVE my outfit. Last year, I went to my school’s Christmas party, and I hated, absolutely hated what I was wearing. This may sound silly, but not being comfortable and confident in what I was wearing had an impact on my attendance. I didn’t have as much fun, I never really felt at ease, and I was preoccupied with my personal distaste for what I was wearing. This time around, I’m determined to love what I’m wearing to tonight’s Christmas party. I know if I’m comfortable and feel good, I will in turn have a much better time. I’ve put together two very different looks; I thought I’d ask for your help….Which outfit do you think I should wear to tonight’s Christmas party?

Option A: Christmas Plaid w/ a Sequin Mini

Here’s the thing about a night out for me: I can’t wear heels. Yes, you may see them every now and again here on Kremb de la Kremb, but it’s usually for a styled post–like Wednesday. I wore my sparkly black booties, yet I would be able to wear those for a four hour plus night. I just can’t do it–yet! (Never say never right!?) So, footwear comes first, and it might as well be gold. I also want to be dressy and of course Christmas-y. So, here I’ve taken my favorite Christmas plaid shirt and paired it with a blush sequin skirt. I think this outfit incorporates just enough glam while assuring comfort at the Christmas party.

This little reindeer ring comes out at Christmas time. When I spotted it at a swap, I scooped it up, knowing it would join the other holiday baubles in my holiday wear box.

Option B: Black Velvet Suit w/ a Sequin Top

I repeatedly state how half of my holiday wear box is filled with items picked up after the holiday season. This is the case here: the black velvet suit I had my eye on all winter at Zara but only bought it once it was on sale. The same went for the H&M top and was a lucky find. It was just one piece randomly left behind, and I snatched it as fast as I could. For sure I feel much better in this bright pink lip color which makes me make a mental note that those dark burgundy colors don’t work as well on me. Again, I chose comfy footwear; these are my winking kids’ shoes from the girl department at Target. It’s guaranteed I’d be comfortable wearing these sparkly shoes all night. Tennis with a suit reminds me of Ellen–if she can pull it off, maybe I can too.

Aren’t these earrings perfect for this top? Ironically they are also from H&M but just this season. It’s as if the two were made for one another, but there’s about three years in between….

What should I wear to the Christmas Party?

I’d like you to help me decide. Which outfit do you prefer? The more casual with the Christmas plaid blinged up with some sequins? Or do you prefer the black velvet suit with over the top sparkles? Please help me get dressed for my Christmas party tonight!
