Christmas Party/New Years outfit


Happy Wednesday! One of my favorite parts of the holidays are all of the parties and celebrations. The energy and excitement are so contagious that you cannot help but feel happy. There is always good food, good music, and good company!

This year we attended my husband’s work Christmas party which is easily the most extravagant event I’ve ever attended. Last year, I wore a short dress and felt under dressed so this year I decided to look for something a bit more fancy. I got so many compliments on this jumper! At least 5 before we even got into the actual party.

Velvet has been such a huge trend this year and I scored this jumper for less than $20. Yes, you read that correctly. LESS THAN $20!!! You will most likely see it re-worn on New Years Eve! 🙂

I’ve always been a huge sale shopper. However, I believe in investment pieces and will spend money on Items I know I can wear multiple times. When I make purchases on clothing I always think to myself, “How often will I ACTUALLY wear this?” I like to find my price per wear value. If I find a winter coat for $150 and I know I’ll wear it at least 15 times I’m much more likely to purchase it. With trend items that I know I wont wear the following year, I don’t usually spend very much on them. Velvet is a huge trend right now and it may not be next year, so I wasn’t willing to spend very much on this jumper. When I saw the $16.99 price tag, I was sold.

With New Years coming, I would encourage you all to check your local TJ Maxx for a similar option. However, I’ve linked options I’ve found. I love these and would buy them if I needed another option! These are all dressier options for any events or going out this New Years!
