"One seems to hear words of good cheer from ev'rywhere filling the air!"

I took a little vacation from blogging, not deliberately, because despite getting the flu shot, I came down with the flu a few days before Christmas. Luckily it was a shorter term than it could have been and though it certainly didn't feel like it at the time, my symptoms could have been worse as well. Some of our festivities like Christmas Eve dinner and church were halted for me, as well as blogging for a bit.

Anyway, now I can finally have a truly nice break for my last couple weeks at home, and blog some more! This is an old shirt dress that I got at a peculiar bargain store that used to exist in the town next to ours. I love that it evokes Carolina Herrera without the price tag. I styled it with heels and a belt, folding up the cuffs and popping the collar to make it look a bit 1940's. I used to wear this to class in high school, and now I realize how ridiculous and dressy I must have looked. I was definitely destined to live in a city when I grew up with how much I loved to dress up and how I had no where in particular but biology class to go in the clothes.

Outfit Highlights: A dress and bag that imitate Carolina Herrera and Chanel without footing the bill

Style Tip: Lots of shirt dresses are super short and hang flat. I love a fancier one like this with a fuller skirt! Keep it classy.
