my presence is a gift

I’m super happy that the holidays are over. I do love the holiday season but it can wear you down. All the shopping, all the very crowded stores and Christmas music. It can all be very overwhelming.
I didn’t buy too many gifts this year because I was kinda broke after spending a million dollars on my plane ticket home. My family didn’t care presence was gift enough 😉

Dress: Vintage Bob Mackie via Ebay
Boots: Jessica Simpson get a similar pair here
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff see it worn differently here
Sunnies: D&G
I thought this dress would be fitting for the season and the title of the post lol. I love the details on the vintage Bob Mackie dress. It’s also very very warm! This is one of those dresses you can really only wear during the holiday season. I actually got to attend a great Bob Mackie Event last summer with the NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group. I paired this dress with my Rebecaa Minkoff bag that I won during this post.
Its hard to believe the photos were taken just last week when the sun was shining and it wasn’t 14 degrees outside…O_o
One more day to enter my GIVEAWAY for an awesome SWAGBAG HERE!!!!
