another time around. valley.


we hinted to a little end of the week surprise & here it is! we took our christmas eve looks and turned them into winter wedding looks. as women it's hard to resist buying a new holiday outfit, let alone splurging and buying a few new holiday outfits, plural.  we hate to think of wearing those new dresses just once, so we turned the looks into something new!

valley took her red jumper and instead of putting something under it she wore a sheer lace top over it! this will still keep her warm for the wedding but won't  be stuffy for her when she hits the dance floor at the reception. as for accessories she steered clear of any green, which would give her the more holiday look, and opted for pink feminine accents & fun textures. the fur stole is a must have for the winter season and her glitter minaudiere is just enough sparkle to show-off her funky side.  last but not least, her matching red envelope coat is a perfect addition to keep her look monochromatic chic.

if you don't have a wedding coming up, this might be a perfect look for a valentine's {or galentine's} day dinner! dontcha think? any questions, let us know :)

x&o.

  1. I love red coats! I have a light peacoat one! It's add the perfect brightness to a freezing, sometimes dreary day

  10. That red coat is so chic! And I love that red dress with the lace top over the top. I never would have thought of doing that with a dress, so I may need to steal that idea! <3
