Despite the fact that the December holidays, the time of giving and receiving presents it’s over and what’s next is to fulfil those resolutions we made to ourselves; there’s always a reason to party. It’s a huge challenge to dress up for such occasion in winter and we all been in that position at some point; you’re standing there, in front of your closet full of gorgeous and super short dresses that give you chills just by looking at them, and even if for a moment you consider the possibility of wearing them, you almost always end up wearing a pair of pants and a dressy top, that’s it. All that investment you did in your party dresses must be reimbursed on some way, and there’s no better option than the simple act of wearing them.

An easy idea if you’re not going to spend a lot of time at the exterior is to wear a coat that will accentuate the color of your dress, if going bare legs is a big no-no for you, there’s always nude tights, they don’t seem like much but believe me, they help a lot. Another idea I had in mind and I always wanted to try is to wear a lace dress with pants underneath; the richness of the texture of leather make an unsurpassable couple when paired with lace, and if they’re in contrasting colors, even better.

I originally wanted this post to be my dressing options for New Years Eve but December is the worst month to receive online purchases, so the package containing the dresses was very, very delayed. I considered to cancel it and adjust it to another season but then I thought: there’s always a party somewhere.

A pesar de que las fiestas decembrinas, la época de dar y recibir regalos ya se terminó y lo que sigue es el cumplir aquellos propósitos que nos hayamos impuesto; siempre hay razones para hacer una fiesta. Vestir para una ocasión así en invierno es un reto al que seguramente todas nosotras nos enfrentamos; estas ahí, parada frente a tu armario con algunos vestidos bellísimos y cortísimos que sólo de verlos te dan escalofríos y aunque por un momento consideres la posibilidad de usarlos, casi siempre terminas por vestir unos pantalones con un top bonito y se acabó. Toda aquella inversión que haces en tus vestidos de fiesta se tiene que ver remunerado de alguna forma, y no hay mejor manera que el simple acto de usarlos.

Una idea fácil y si no vas a pasar mucho tiempo al exterior es usar un abrigo que resalte el color de tu vestido, si ir con las piernas descubiertas es un gran no-no para ti, siempre existen las medias color piel, tal vez parezca que no sirven de mucho, pero créanme, ayudan bastante. Otra idea que siempre había querido probar es usar un vestido de encaje con unos pantalones por debajo; la riqueza de la textura del cuero hace una pareja inmejorable con el encaje, y si son en colores que contrastan, mil veces mejor.

Originalmente este post iban a ser mis propuestas para la Víspera de Año Nuevo pero diciembre es el peor mes para recibir cosas por correo y mi paquete con los vestidos llegó muy, muy retrasado. Estuve considerando en cancelarlo o ajustarlo para otras fechas pero luego pensé: siempre hay una fiesta en alguna parte.

    What bra did you wear with the lulus sheer lace dress? And size? Looks beautiful! Thank you.

    • Hi Jenny! I didn’t wear a bra, I’m very flat chested so I don’t need it, but you can wear those stick on bras :) they work just as good.
      I got the size M for the lace dress because S wasn’t available, it fits ok but if I had to choose again I would pick up the small one.
