GOWN: Alexis (here and here)/BAG: (old)/HEELS: (c/o) River Island/EARRINGS: (c/o) BaubleBar (similar here and here)

Merry Christmas everyone! Today has been magical.

TRUTH: I’ve been a complete homebody. Loungin’ around in PJs, watching holiday movies and sipping on some hot cocoa because Houston decided to get cold – like, out of nowhere. The other day it was 70. Now it’s like 20 degrees. #soconfused Good thing I brought a leather jacket with me!

Anyways, as much as I enjoy staying in, I also enjoy getting dressed up for events – especially on Christmas and New Year’s where you have an excuse to “take it up a notch.” That’s why I’m featuring this stunning gown by Alexis, purchased two weeks ago at the sample sale.

Unfortunately, I can’t link back to the sample sale – you had to be in Miami for that. BUT, lucky for you, it’s still available on websites like Revolve and Moda Operandi.

I had it taken in on the sides and hemmed at the bottom. It’s also heavy because of the velvet material, making it a great option for winter. (Notice the movement!)

I’m wearing old BaubleBar earrings (similar here and here) and an old snakeskin rose gold clutch.

Logging off early so I can enjoy the rest of my day! Merry Christmas everyone…

Xo, Stephanie
