I thought it would be a good idea to put on my Christmas Eve outfit this past weekend and take some outfit photos before the rain had a chance to ruin my hair! I’m sure I won’t be able to wear my gown if there’s a down pour, but a gown is another Holiday look I totally approve.
As a Latina it’s always been a tradition to celebrate Christmas Eve (otherwise known as ‘Noche Buena‘) much more than Christmas Day. Christmas Day for us is hangover leftover day, which to many is still a celebration. One of my many aunts invited us to her annual Christmas Eve gathering. It’s been a while since we’ve been there, so this year I’m hoping like every other year: to have a good time with family I often don’t get to spend time with. During this time of year, I love all the Christmas songs that are played in the stores and on my iPhone. That’s right I download Christmas music. Whatever makes us happy. 😉
I just had to have this dress from the Altuzarra for Target collection. Why not? You have a better chance of wearing gowns around the last two seasons of the year than any other time of the year. Gowns are easy to put on, glamorous and always make a statement, even if you’re turning heads or trying to fit your dress through a door. I altered my dress (lower v neck also known as a deep V and a higher slit to show how much I’ve been working out -Not!) for a sexier touch and I really loved how it came out in pictures. What do you think of my alterations?
Where will you be spending Christmas Eve and/or Christmas Day? Most importantly, what will you be wearing?
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays! 🙂
