Red(ish) Lace Dress For The Holidays

We’re almost one week into December. Can you even? There will be lots of holiday parties for lots of people. In case you’re wondering, I’m not one of them. LOL. We do have Kent’s office party this Saturday, but it’s not a real dressy occasion, it’s actually during the day at a nice restaurant. Do you dread going to things like that or look forward to it? Honestly, we usually kinda dread it, but always end up enjoying ourselves. I know, we’re weird. HA!

Would you believe this dress is from…Target? Yep! I know, right?! Seriously y’all, you’ve got to spend some time periodically on their website. There is so much good stuff on there that’s not in the stores. I ordered this one over 6 weeks ago, photographed it and then pushed it to the back of my mind. What the what? Of course that means that now sizes are limited, but it is still in stock. #imsorry

When I saw it, I thought it would be great for the holidays. It’s not a bright red, so I don’t think it would be as limiting. and the style could be worn year round. Perfect for weddings and parties.

I chose these sandals, but they could just as easily be replaced with a nude pump for winter wear. While we’re talking about these sandals, can I just tell you that they are very comfortable. I have them in 3 colors and don’t hesitate to wear them. I bought this color for Benny’s wedding back in May, even though I already had another pair almost identical. They weren’t nearly as comfy, so I ordered these and they didn’t disappoint.

On a side note: If you are looking for a good self tanner, I highly recommend the Rodan + Fields Foaming Tanner. I’ve used lots of different brands and this is honestly my favorite. The color is very subtle, buildable and doesn’t streak. That’s right, no streaks. One bottle lasts a long time too.

We actually have a special bundle that just started.  The Microdermabrasion paste is the BEST and makes your skin feel like a baby’s. Use it on your face, elbows or feet, and it lasts 6 -12 months, depending on how much you use it. The Active Hydration Body Replenish is probably the BEST moisturizer EVER, and when you purchase them together, you get the Foaming Sunless Tanner FREE.

If you are interested in it for yourself, just let me know in the comments or send me an email.


Are you ready to check out Target for your next dress? I found some great options for you to think about.

    Um, ma’am, can I please see your id? Gosh friend you look like a teenager in this dress. So. Stunning. How in the world did you not tell me about this dress? Very flattering on you and the nude sandals are sensational!
    I dread office Christmas parties! WE usually end up having an okay time but thankfully neither of us have parties that require spouses. Whew!
    I have to say, this is one of your best looks my beautiful friend!

    We usually love Christmas parties and I love hosting them, too! This year, our social calendar filled up pretty fast and so we’ve had to decline a few, but never fear! Me and the girlfriends will certainly be getting together before Christmas! Date to be determined. Ha! Lisa, you look amazing! I love that dress and it’s the perfect fit for you! I agree that it would be perfect for a holiday party or a wedding. Great choice from Tarjay!

      You are the party queen. I did a lot of entertaining when we lived in Richmond, but not much at all now. I do miss it, but one day I’ll pick it back up! Thanks girlie!!! XO

    Swooning over this dress, Lisa! The rich red color is right in my sweet spot, as well as the lace texture. You got a winner with this one. We don’t have much going on in the way of parties, either. I hope you enjoy your husband’s! Hugs, Kim

      Thank you Kim! I wish I’d shared it sooner before sizes were so picked over. UGH. Have a great day!! XO

    What a good looking dress and you look great in it. We have no dressy parties for sure. I have some really cute Berek sweaters that I wear to most of the functions that we go to. Have a great and fun weekend!

    This is THE prettiest dress from Target I’ve ever seen and it looks perfect on you! What a perfect dress, it is classy and tasteful yet form fitting and the lace adds a feminine touch. I always sort of dread social occasions for the holidays (for work type stuff), but then like you I always enjoy them!


    • December 7, 2018 / 5:44 pm

      Thanks so much Carrie. I’m loving exploring their website. XO

    • December 7, 2018 / 5:44 pm

      Oh Laura, you are too kind. Thank you. Yes, it would be good for Valentine’s Day too.XO

      Thank you Jess! I am so bummed. With Katie home I haven’t been regular about checking my email (not at all like me) and Saturday they had 30% off all clothing and shoes…I’d been waiting for that to order some things. UGH! Hope you have a great week!!! XO
