Hey everyone! Happy December second! To you all, it may be just another day, but to my hometown it is the day that we celebrate our "Grand Illumination." Or a night where we light up all the lights in the town including a large Christmas Tree and a snowflake made of lights that hangs over the main street. Since that is all taking place at six tonight, I obviously do not have the pictures to go along with this post (yet, I plan on posting them later.) Right now, I'm bringing you all my outfit that I am wearing currently and to tonight's party that my family has each year in celebration of the Grand Illumination (more pictures to follow of the party itself.) I wrestled this dress that I wore to a winter formal out of my closet to bring it back as a skirt, pairing it with a Zara shirt I bought in Boston a few weeks ago and a Marc Jacobs clutch I picked up yesterday. That, with a vintage The Limited belt and some Urban Outfitters heels, I actually really love this outfit. Something like this is what I think makes for a great holiday party outfit, even if my shirt does say END in large letters - if you look close it actually says "the end to melancholia" which is exactly what Christmas is.
