Christmas In July Outfit

So, in the true spirit of Christmas Geekdom, I decided to host a "Christmas in July" themed dinner on the 25th for a few of my friends. Obviously, this meant a Christmas themed outfit as well!

I've had this Adele Dallas Orr dress for ages, and it finally fits properly, so I just had to wear it! The black velvet bustier is so soft and luxurious - perfect for winter! The tartan skirt is a full circle, with a full circle black satin underskirt. Full skirts just make me want to twirl!

From the front...

 And the back...

It was a bit chilly, so I added a black velvet boloro-style jacket from Foshini.

 Accesorizing with black nails (seen here) and a marcasite ring from Truworths.

Sneaking a peak at lace-topped stockings ;)

I made these reindeer earrings from charms I bought in a small bead store one holiday...

Black and silver beaded necklace from Poetry.

For my makeup, I picked up the colours of my outfit by using black liquid liner and red lipstick.

And, of course, adding a plush Santa hat over my sock bun! (Also, showing off that I could lift my arms up without my dress slipping down!)

Did anyone else have a Christmas In July party this year?
