I don’t know about you, but I am desperate for any occasion to dress up these days. Mr. Magpie and I take turns taking mini to school and sometimes I put on a dress and booties when it’s my turn (and the weather cooperates) just because it makes me feel good. My sister and brother-in-law recently glammed up in coat-and-tie/heels and pretended to “go out to dinner” at home one night, lighting candles and fixing up fancy cocktails first, and then sitting down to a proper dinner on china after. Below, sharing some holiday dresses for the upcoming season — no judgment (in fact, mad props) if you doll up just to trim your tree at home…
TIERED VELVET DRESS ($118) — THE SLEEVES ARE ON-TREND AND THE PRICE IS RIGHT! ALSO LOVE THE UNEXPECTED MARIGOLD SHADE
A FEATHERED, SATIN HOUSECOAT DRESS…IT’S 2020, WHY THE HELL NOT?
MY DREAM CHRISTMAS DRESS BY MARKARIAN ($$$$ BUT SO GOOD)
MY WARM WEATHER MAGPIES: THIS ULLA IN THE GREEN (ON SALE!)
THIS RUFFLED COLLAR DRESS ($35!)
If you’re not a dress gal, a few finds to pair with what you already have in your closet…
SEQUIN TOP WITH YOUR FAVORITE TROUSERS
SLIP SKIRTS ARE BACK (I SEE YOU, CAROLYN BESSETTE KENNEDY) AND THIS UNDER-$100 STYLE COMES IN TWO GREAT COLORS
Lastly: a couple of really good new holiday decor finds:
P.S. I think that we have a lot of Bodega Santas in the Magpie community.
P.P.S. Did you watch “Emily in Paris”? Apparently it’s a polarizing show. I shared some oblique thoughts on it here. (I enjoyed it.)
P.P.P.S. The sweater as accessory, you say?
