I have but one "Christmas Party" to attend that isn't a more casual family gathering, and that's the ol' office Christmas party. It's a bit of a bummer since it occurs at the end of a workday, and at the workplace (though not quite like the debauched celebration of 'The Apartment' thankfully!). I have so many pretty frocks that are worn regularly to work, so it`s hard to decide on something that is festive, not TOO dressy, and that allows for lotsa eating and dancing. Because of the dancing, I don`t want to wear something really vintage, since they`re more delicate, but then so many other pieces have been worn to work as my everyday garb! Oh what`s an overdressing gal to do...

Everything points to wearing the Painted Plaid dress, since it`s gorgeous, comfortable, great for dancing, and hasn`t been worn as just a dress to work (I've worn it covered with a cardigan or blazer). Except it`s difficult to dress down for everyday as it is, and I don`t want it to be indelibly associated in my mind with Christmas and as a party dress! I think I would pin one edge up a bit to show the cute crinoline... Argh! But then it already seems to be THE Christmas dress:

Oh, and I have a whole slew of OOTDs to catch up on from November- this posting once-a-week thing is too lazy! Plus my goal for the year was 100 posts and I could get there with a bit more discipline (man, some of you manage that in 1/2 the time)!!
