Who’s excited for Christmas?! Going up, I actually never celebrated Christmas as my Mom is very Asian and the rest of my family is in China. But after meeting my boyfriend Adrian and going to his family for Christmas last year, I’ve been super into Christmas and have been looking forward to it for months now. I’ve even had my Christmas tree up since October! So today’s look is a dressy Christmas outfit that is a bit more fashion forward than your typical Christmas outfit. The most Christmasy part of this look is the fuzzy pink reindeer sweater from Missguided with amazing sequin detailing for $30. Such a good deal! I wanted to pair it with something a bit more edgy for contrast, so I went with my favorite new sheer skirt from & Other Stories. Sheer skirts can be so fun for Winter as it’s a great opportunity to pair them colored tights underneath. I chose red tights to pair with the skirt as they really pop and add an additional Christmas element.
For a super glam vibe, I went with the most fabulous long purple fur coat also from Missguided. I’ve seriously been so impressed with the quality of all the pieces I’ve received from Missguided – this faux fur coat looks a lot more expensive than it is, and I’ve received so many compliments and questions about it. It is also surprisingly warm for faux fur as it’s lined on the inside. To match the purple fur coat, I chose shiny purple ankle boots. I completed the look with sparkly earrings and an envelope clutch from Rebecca Minkoff that also has a touch of purple to it. I love that this outfit is festive enough to be a Christmas outfit, but still cool enough to be a fashion outfit.
I stumbled upon the most charming location to shoot this outfit while walking in the East Village. The front of this restaurant has a vintage vibe with the frame on the door and chandelier, and it proved to be the perfect backdrop for this glam look. My photographer’s camera battery actually died half way through the shoot from the cold, but luckily she had her charger with her and we were able to fuel up at a barber shop across the street. So it all worked out, and this it one of my favorite outfit and location combinations to date!
