My Christmas Outfit and a Snood

Hi friends, so this is my official Christmas outfit for the year 2014. I wore a different outfit on Christmas day to celebrate my son's birthday and had to reserve this official outfit for the day after; I did not have a Christmas outfit last year because I was too pregnant to care...:-). So, it was exciting putting an outfit together this year. 

This pleated red skirt was custom made by my seamstress and I wore the purple one here. I felt like if I needed to wear pleated skirt in the winter time, it had to be made of thick durable fabric and since I couldn't find such online; I bought some pleated fabrics from the fabric store and had the skirts made. I can wear them to church and any other formal event in sub temperatures.

The sequin top is actually a sequin express dress that hubs got me for my birthday a couple of years ago and the snood was made by me; yeah moi...:-). I have always wanted a faux fur snood and most of the ones I liked were a bit expensive like this one here and here and here so I decided to make one myself and it came out really nice. It was on my Fall list that I blogged about in this post here. I would put up a DIY pictorial of it later; it's really easy to make and it's super comfy and gives a lot of warmth. It's also different from a regular scarf and a great accessory to have for the cold season. I am also wearing my new booties that I got a couple of weeks ago for less than $15.00. So, this is my Christmas outfit; simple and fun.

Sequin top: dress used as blouse
Skirt: custom made
Belt: thrifted
Clutch: T. J. Maxx
Snood: DIY

Now Christmas is over **sniff, sniff,** I'm going to miss all the harmonious and melodious Christmas carols and the beautiful decor and the lights..

Thanks so much for stopping by
