As the year comes to a close, I am wrapping up gifts, planning a sweet breakfast to make Christmas morning, and excitedly waiting for Kansas City to be blanketed with snow in hopes of a white Christmas. (UPDATE: It snowed this morning!) I am also planning a couple looks for upcoming Christmas parties, and I'm sharing the first today!
I'm loving the idea of winter whites- this dress is delicate, intricately made and almost angelic feeling. It's my new obsession. Perfect for christmas parties with friends or brunch on Christmas morning, I'm convinced it is the perfect dress for the holiday season. I paired the dress with my favorite gold and black accessories and a bold red lip (I love a pop of color on the lips when set against a neutral outfit). To dress it down, I love the idea of layering on a chunky knit duster with tights and ankle boots.
The clutch is from Lions in Four, a globally-minded, socially-conscious brand that creates gorgeous accessories. Women artisans in India create the silk scarves (found on their website here), and the leather used in their clutches is recycled. They have also partnered with nonprofit WE CARE of India, to whom they donate 10 percent of their profits. Lions in Four is also working to establish their own artisan studio and training facility to provide sustainable employment to women and girls in rural South India. (Also, their clutches and scarves make especially great presents, hint hint.)
