Dress:  Amanda Uprichard (old, this year's version here), Coat:  French Connection (very old, LOVE this similar Club Monaco version), Shoes:  Christian Louboutin (budget-friendly option here under $50!!), Earrings:  Chico's (similar here), Bag:  J.Crew (old, similar here)

This past weekend, my husband and I attended a Christmas party for a service organization which he is a part of.  I knew going into it that we would be the youngest attendees so I definitely wanted to don a more simple/sophisticated look.

I wore this dress last year on Christmas Eve.

Rule #2:  Wear your HIGHEST heels.

"You put on high heels and you change." - Manolo Blahnik

Couldn't agree more ~ there is something about heels that instantly transforms me.  I go from feeling ordinary to feeling extraordinary.

'Tis the season to wear RED!!!
