Cocktail Attire: Holiday Party Outfit!

We had Hubby's work party on Saturday.  I love dressing up and don't get to do it as often as I would like.  I bought two dresses at J.C. Penney on Black Friday (in the hour I actually went shopping), and decided on the navy one.

The party itself was a lot of fun.

Sorry Hubby cut off the shoes.  

You can still buy the dress here.

I also bought a sparkly bracelet at J.C. Penney.  It is hard for me to find bracelets to fit my 5 1/2 inch wrist, but I tried on so many at Penney's that fit.  This bracelet was very pretty and petite, but added just enough sparkle.

I also wore some sparkly rhinestone earrings that dangled in a diamond shape.  My hair was so big you can't see them, haha.  My mother-in-law gave them to me as hand-me-downs and I have no idea where she bought them or how long ago.

I also wore my trusty nude pumps.

I use hot rollers to curl my hair.  I have neither the patience nor the skill for a curling iron.

The real shocker is that my hair was still curly at the end of the night!!!  I think I am finally learning how to do my hair so it holds.  LOTS and lots of hairspray and no Georgia humidity...


"Hubby, will you take my picture real quick for my blog?"

He is a silly one, that Hubby...


  1. You look great! Love the hairstyle. Hee hee...the photo that your husband took of you, is hilarious! I can imagine my husband doing something similar! I'm sure that a picture of you, crouched near a dog cage, in all of your finery, is exactly what you were after!

    1. Thank you! I guess with the other picture you can at least see the back of the dress, haha!
