Revival Files: Underneath The Mistletoe

jacket c/o OASAP (buy it here)
Can I have a double high five for this before picture. You guys, this picture is one of my better accomplishments. Go on, you know you want to keep looking at it. The face, the freakishly small looking head. SO GOOD.

So I found this dress almost a year ago, and decided that there was no way I would even start working on it until November, and I can't tell you how hard it was to resist, especially when October rolled around and I started to want to listen to Christmas music. Okay so maybe I started working on it October 31st. Whew that confession felt good. This lovely holiday party is on sale for $35! You can get it here in the shop!
