Holiday Dressed Down with Adrianna Papell

If you've been perusing my blog for a little while you know that I'm not-so-quietly-obsessed with party dresses. There always seems to be an occasion around the corner (in many cases, my occasion is Friday night) that requires the perfect little cocktail dress. Right now I'm naturally thinking about what to wear this Christmas and New Years so I was completely giddy when I had some Adrianna Papell and Aidan Mattox dresses sent my way. I decided to showcase my favorites in what would be my first dive into this-is-me-in-the-clothes fashion blogging.

Instead of wearing the dresses in their obvious dressed up state, I decided to mix it up and play around with ways these pieces can be worn after the holiday parties are over. So I headed to a Christmas tree lot (which as you can see was pretty deserted... probably due to the hair-frizzing rain fall), bribed my brother and here we have it:

 Love, love, love this vintage inspired lace... especially when mixed with other fabrics.
Dress: Adrianna Papell, buy it here at Nordstroms; Turban: ASOS; Scarf: Vintage; Shirt: J Crew; Boots: Baker's.

I adore the neckline on this number. Also, the fit is awesomely comfortable.
Dress: Adrianna Papell, buy it here at Nordstrom's; Sweater: Lucy Paris; Boots: Baker's.

Leave me a comment with your thoughts and check in tomorrow for Aidan Mattox dresses dolled up.
