Hi everyone!

The Holiday's are HERE which means way too many (but really, never enough) Christmas parties, Champagne and quality time spent with the ones that mean the most. Christmas is, by far, my most beloved holiday for the obvious reasons -- the abundance of glitter, shopping and sweet treats -- but also for the intangible reasons that can only be experienced. It's all about that "feeling" that you get when you're out and about during the holiday season, the overwhelming presence of happiness -- either real or imagined, who cares -- that seems to encapsulate every aspect of this time of the year. From the very first Starbucks "red cup" (and subsequent Instagram capture, dont lie) to the perpetual desire to pile on coats, vests, scarves, etc. even though you live in the Southeast corner of the country where it's just plain old HOT outside! 

What better way to complement such a wondrous holiday than with impeccably avant-garde ensembles that demand attention! Today's post is a "go-to" holiday look for me because it makes a huge statement, while actually remaining quite simple. This dress is possibly the most literal take on "holiday dressing" that I could have styled, but hey, why not rock a bright red swing dress with roses, ruffles and pleats?! That's just what we like to do over here at The Stone File.
