Christmas Card


Holiday dress, plus size dress, simplybe, sequin dress
B & I shot our Christmas card today, so I thought I would share my look for it.  I think every plus blogger has this dress and rightfully so.  It's like the perfect holiday dress.   I've had mine for some time, but just needed a reason to wear it.  I'm sure quite a few of your have been eyeing this dress, so I figured I give you the low down on it.  I was nervous about it because I really couldn't tell from the fabric how it was going to fit.  It's stretchy, so if you are unsure on your sizing then not to worry it will have some give.  It's a beautiful dress, but like with most sequin items the sequin can rub your skin.  I paired with tights, because it's on the short side. 

Style Note: My gloves are opera length but I decided to wear them scrunched.  They come up comfortably to my elbow.  They do come past my elbow, but because of my arm size that's when they start to roll.  I have another pair in leopard.  I ADORE them.

  5. You look awesome as always. Not sure if you did it yet, but maybe you can do a segment on tights. There are a lot of patterns and prints out there, but besides torrid I'm not sure
    Where else to get them.

  16. Love your Christmas photo!! This dress looks amazing on you. I think the way you've styled it is my favorite so far. xo

  17. It's a pretty dress but it seems that by the time these stores get these dresses and clothes to the bloggers they are always sold out of them. So it's like we never have an option to get the look in the pictures. I wish they'd send the dresses to you guys before they released them so we had a chance to buy them too.

    1. This dress has actually been in stock for about 2 months now. I've had mine about a month and half. Sometimes, we wait to wear things so they are season appropriate or for an occasion/event we have coming up. This felt like a holiday dress (I think the other bloggers felt like this as well), so I think a lot of them waiting to wear it in December. I know thats what I did. I've seen this dress on at least 3 other bloggers...popular ones at that. So when it's worn, folks rush to buy it and it sells out. I was probably the last one to wear mine.

      I think the big thing about this dress is that you really couldn't tell about the fit from the online photo. I think the bloggers wearing it gave people an idea on how it would fit and made them plunge and buy. Had they sent this dress to me before they released it...I still probably would have waited, because sequin and velvet gloves in September wouldn't make sense. LOL. I do try to post things quickly if it makes sense, but sometimes it doesn't work out like. :(

    2. Oh, I only look at about 3 bloggers (including you). So I saw the dress on you and on Gabifresh in the past week and that was it. I actually had seen it but like you said, didn't know much about the fit and don't have much experience with Simply Be, their sizing, or the quality of their clothes.
      So I am back to my original Xmas party outfit since this is gone...oh well, I'll just console myself by saying it's something I would have maybe worn once and maybe not at all (b/c I am bad about that). I also think I don't order from them as much b/c they are in the UK so I know I can return but it just takes a long time to get stuff returned and all that. So as much as I shop online, I lean towards the places that I can get quickly and figure out the fit and sizing (like Asos...everything is on models and they can get stuff to you in 2 days).

  18. I have seen this dress a few times on different blogs, but I love how each girl wears it so differently. I love your gloves with it. It gives it such vintage Hollywood glamour. The dress really does seem like a miracle dress. It cuts an awesome figure and the colors are stunning. I also liked seeing your holiday card. Such a sweet and stylin' family shot!

  19. I can't see the card completely, but that dress is EVERYTHING ! Your husband looks so plain up against that BOMB.COM dress! (Sorry hubby). I know at least 4 bloggers that have this dress and posted about it, but you've just convinced me to actually buy it- thanks to those opera gloves.
