HOLIDAY LACE&GRACE

I found this black lace dress at Macys and it was love at first try-on. It reminded me of this gorgeous black lace dress that Tien has, but that I can't get a hold of because there are no H&Ms in Houston. GRRRR. Well, this was the next best thing, and I wore it to my company's holiday party this past weekend!

I love the long sleeves, the beautiful black lace, and the kicky tulle lining under the skirt. It fit so wonderfully, and even though I wore it with an all-black ensemble, some light makeup, baubles, and shiny heels ensured that I looked like myself and not like some strange wannabe goth AmyK (because I left those days in high school, kids, and I don't ever want to revisit them).

black tights, hue
patent peeptoe mary janes, cole haan
monocle necklace, gift
faceted glacon bracelet, j.crew
pave heart ring, coach


And I think Boyfriend must be starved for some proper blog attention because here's what I found after taking a detail shot for you guys:


Sneaky devil. But he also got gussied up for the holiday party, so it's only fair that I show off his ensemble as well:


Yup.

And finally, at the end of the night, Boyfriend and I found ourselves alone on the roof of the parking garage overlooking Houston's glorious skyline. So what do we do? We take pictures like this:


I don't know what I'm saluting, though. Holiday cheer?
