We had so much fun last week, during our holiday photo shoot, albeit we had to fight through the wind chill and approaching snow storm, but that didn’t damper our day! We teamed up with one of our local boutiques, Monkees, to showcase a few of their gorgeous dresses! If you live near the Fredericksburg area, and haven’t visited this cute little store, then you need to change your plans for the rest of the day and go! They have so many beautiful brand name clothes, shoes, purses and accessories! The owner Catherine, and her staff, are so nice and friendly and can help put an outfit together for you in seconds! I chose this fun and flirty Kate Spade dress to wear. It’s perfect for a Christmas, or New Year’s Eve party, without going too over the top! I love the gorgeous deep maroon color and it’s pretty details. From the ruffles on the hem line, arm line and high neck line, to the classic waist, this dress does not disappoint! Plus, it has deep pockets (I mean… who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?) I dressed it up with a pair of lace pumps, a black shawl (just enough material to cover shoulders!) and beautiful earrings and cuff bracelet! This dress is simple, classic and feminine and can definitely be worn for many different occasions, which is why I love it! By the way, if you love this dress as much as I do, it’s on sale in the Monkees boutique right now!! Whoop-whoop! You can also find the clutch, as well as the earrings and bracelet that I’m wearing in the store too! Happy Holidays!
