Sparkly. I believe in dressing for the exact mood and tone of the day.
This Saturday, I heard Dan promote the Idaho Ho Ho album at the Vista Moxie Java, and then went to a holiday party (thanks FlukenBrady).

Cheep! This dress sparkles in person. The belt buckles in the back with 5 hook-and-eyes, and ties in the front. I could have done a full bow, but the one-sided bow covers up my burgeoning Christmas belly better, and looks a little less smaltzy.
a) I rode my bike in the snow in the dress and the bottom material is so thick you don’t really need stockings.
b) I’ve seen Lt. Maria LaGuerta on Dexter wear this necklace on more than one occasion. When I see it I do a little Cheep squeal.
