Fancy Hems for the Holidays

vintage betsey johnson dress holiday outfits

Dear Kaitlyn,

I hope you had a great end to 2013! Christmas Eve dinner tends to be the more formal night for my family, and it’s kind of a tradition for me to wear something black and a pile of jewelry. This Betsey Johnson dress is an old favorite of mine that transitions really well throughout all of the seasons. It came with a small black slip, but I swapped it out for one I recently got from Ruche. This slip is fancier and has tiered chiffon ruffles at the bottom.

On Christmas

December 25, 2011
Dear Mia,

Merry Christmas! So I got a new lens, but I’m still obviously adjusting to it because none of my photos are properly focused. I don’t think I can shoot wide open at ƒ1.4 unless I’m holding the camera. The bokeh is completely amazing though, I’m really enjoying it.

I walked down to the lake with my cousin and her dog to take photos. I tried, but Max didn’t want to pose with me and kept running away. It started to rain while we were out there, too, but I was so far from the house that I kept taking photos because I was definitely getting rained on anyway.

Of course, it stopped as soon as I got inside.

I’m wearing my vintage Betsey Johnson dress, Helmut Lang coat (Christmas gift!), Target belt, Assets by Sara Blakely tights, and Stuart Weitzman shoes.

Hope you’re having a wonderful holiday!
