If you’re like me, going to a big department store can be a bit overwhelming. For the most part, all I see are rows and rows of clothes. Nothing stands out. Just lots of dark clothes, followed by light-colored clothes and the color du jour. Usually I throw up my hands in frustration, annoyed that I’ve waited until the eleventh hour to look for that special outfit.
“IT’S NOT ABOUT THE SIZE! IT’S ABOUT THE FIT.”
All of my holiday events this year are casual with friends and family, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to wear something everyday looking. The holidays are the perfect time to wear velvet and sequins, even with jeans. For those of you who say, “I don’t want to be that showy,” or “Aunt Agatha will make a derogatory comment… “ You’re not dressing for Aunt Agatha. You’re dressing to feel great about yourself and to feel festive. Let Aunt Agatha wear her predictable prim and matronly outfit with the ugly sweater. Smile, give her a big hug, and tell her how happy you are to see her!
And if you’re the only woman in the room with some glitz on… Congratulate yourself!
