Lookbook: Christmas Outfit (Lace and Leather)


A way overdue post. But as I had mentioned on my previous post, here's a more detailed post of what I actually wore for Christmas.

I just spent Christmas at my parents' house with some of the family that I have here, family friends, and Lionel of course. Most of my family are in the Philippines, so it's actually pretty mellow around this time of the year for us. I do miss spending Christmas in the Philippines with everyone and just like every year, I wish I actually had a chance to go back again. But because of work, it didn't happen. However, as long as I'm spending it with my parents, brother, and Lionel then I'm happy.


This was actually the outfit that I wore for mass on Christmas day. I saw this dress when I went to TJ Maxx randomly hanging somewhere in the store about a month ago. I knew then that I'll be wearing this for Christmas the moment I saw it. The length of the dress and the cut was just appropriate. It's so feminine and a bit demure. I decided to toughen up the outfit a bit by pairing it with my faux leather jacket and some accessories. And since we've been so blessed with a 70 something weather around, I didn't freeze my bum off wearing this dress after adding some black tights with it.


And by the way, I've been really loving the accessories that Holly (HollyAnnAeree) has given me for Christmas. I love, love, love them. I've been wearing them pretty much everyday since I got them. The earrings are probably my favorite since they pretty much go with everything.

  1. Such a pretty look! I love the way you toughened the look up with your jacket :) Most of my family on my Mom's side is in the Philippines as well, so it's mellow here too. Hope you had a pleasant holiday!
