Perfect Dress for Holiday Parties

Hello lovelies!

It has been so long since I posted.  I hope everyone survived Harvey and is in a better place now.  I was very fortunate and it didn’t seem right to post during all the chaos everyone was experiencing.  But the city has pulled together, the Astros have won and Thanksgiving is almost here!

Before I get to the OOTD I would like to discuss The Handmaid’s Tale – on Hulu.  If you have not seen it I recommend you do so immediately.  I cannot confirm nor deny but I may have binge watched it in two days.  But that is neither here nor there.  The series is based on the novel by Margaret Atwood which I read eons ago.  I do not remember details anymore which is great because I have gotten to see the series through fresh eyes.  I always love a show where the characters are so multi-dimensional that you are not sure if you love them or hate them.  I cannot wait for the next season!

I came across this dress online and completely fell in love.  I am obsessed with this color – aubergine.  It could be that Houston has finally reached temperatures low enough that it feels like it may actually be Fall (sort of).  But dark jewel tones remind me of New York this time of year – and I so rarely see this rich color.  It is the perfect shade.  The dress fit off the rack which is amazing and the best part – it is under a $100 and very well made.  That is not a typo!  I love the tulle, the backless element and the tea length.  I wore it to a gala but it can easily be worn to holiday parties or ladies lunches.  I also wore it out with a small denim jacket and some stilettos.
