Style File | Spread the Cheer!


Yay!! It’s Christmas!! What better way to celebrate the holiday then to spread some cheer around. Modcloth is holding a special “Spread the Cheer” promotion this week and I was honored to be asked to participate. I got to pick out a very pretty dress and then send the same dress to a favorite blogger of mine. I chose to send it to Melissa from Dear Baby. She has been such an inspiration and a dear friend to me as a new Mom. Her love shines through every post she writes on her blog! Love her!

I know I said the other day that the Dear Creatures dress was “my new favorite dress,” but this is by far my most favorite party dress. Oh Goodness this dress is perfect. It is so freakin’ beautiful! Sometimes, I go into my closet just to look at it. haha. JK. I do love it to death though. I can’t wait to wear it tomorrow for Christmas eve service at church.


Outfit Details:
Raspberry Champagne Cocktail Dress: c/o Modcloth
Tights: Target
Headband: Selfmade
Bismuth Booties: Seychelles

You can see all the Bloggers participating in the Spread the Cheer Campaign over on the Modcloth blog. You can also watch a super cute video of Modcloth employees spreading the cheer by surprising local customers with their orders. If you purchase a $50 gift certificate from now until 12/25, you will be entered to win a second gift certificate so you can spread the cheer to your friends or family!
