Happy Monday! I can’t believe, there is only 13 days until Christmas. Who’s excited? I’m going to be one busy bee this week as I’m going to be hosting a Christmas party at my house this coming weekend. On Wednesday (next week) we are heading to Dallas for our holiday vacation. I can’t wait to finally be able to relax a little from a busy schedule everyday. We’re all a little bit crazy this time of year. I feel like I never rest anymore.

Anyhow, I’m not velvet kind of woman but I need one for certain occasion. This dress from SheIn is absolutely gorgeous! I am in love with this dress!! The color is just like the picture, a dark emerald green, this color has a sheen to it that makes you stand out in the crowd. The fabric is luxurious, and the cut is flattering for a curvy figure. It accentuates your waistline and the V neckline can be adjusted to be deeper or more modest. I will be wearing this dress to Church on Sunday. It’s definitely suitable for holiday gatherings or any special occasion. I am a size 6 and the small was absolutely perfect! For only $13.99 (on sale) this dress is worth every penny and I highly recommend!! 

As always, thank you for stopping by. Thank you for reading. Happy Holidays!

    This is a beautiful dress, Len! The sheen is very apparent in the photos and I love how you paired it with the pink coat! I too can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and I do hope you get some rest in Dallas next week. 🙂
