what i wore: the perfect jumpsuit

This season, I became on a mission to find substitutes for the classic holiday party dress. Not that I don't enjoy a good classic, let's be clear here.

So I scoured the Nordstrom website and found something that basically feels more comfortable than pajamas. And it was so on.

This velvet jumpsuit is from Nordstrom's Topshop line. Not going to lie, it's one of those pieces that, when seen alone, it makes you think, "What the heck am I going to do with this?" But when paired with the right accessories. Boom - it's holiday party worthy.


I grabbed an old, black pair of earrings out of my jewelry box, a lot like these, actually, and threw on a moto jacket like this one

  1. I came to your site to get a good holiday party outfit idea and that's exactly what your post is today, amazing! Do you mind me asking what size you're wearing? Looks great! Topshop sizing is always tricky for me. Thank you!

  2. I feel like a velvet jumpsuit might be one of the hardest looks to pull in the history of fashion, but the jacket and the heels really make it happen! It's awesome to be brave -- I know I don't have the guts for this one, hahah! Jenn at East Meets South
