Work Holiday Party
I usually don’t get this fancy for the holidays. Hence, why I only share one or two cocktail holiday dresses a year. The only time I do is when I go to my work holiday party. This is a treat because these days I don’t always get dolled up and wear a cocktail dress. I love a good excuse to wear a cocktail dress haha. Plus, it is always fun to see my co-workers in a different light. Our work dress code is pretty casual, so seeing everyone dressed up is so much fun!
Unfortunately, I didn’t attend this year’s work holiday party. I briefly mentioned that I am currently not working. (By the way, thank you all so much for your kind words about yesterday’s Instagram post. I always get nervous sharing things about my journey, and it is such a relief when I hear all of your support!). It would have been odd to try to go to my work’s holiday party knowing I am not actively working.
Holiday Party Dress
So this is the dress I would have worn to my work holiday party. I love how it is dressy but not overdone. My favorite part about this dress is how the print and fabric is different from top to bottom. The bottom is a satin-like fabric with geometric pattern creating a midi-length skirt effect. The top is a red lace with mocked neck. What I also love about it is that it has a built-in bra. One less thing to worry about! The only part I don’t like is that the neck is slightly tight. So I will be honest, I didn’t zip it all the way up. The cool part is that it looked like the dress is made that way. For size reference, I am wearing a size small.
Pieces of Me
I briefly want to talk about my bracelet cuff from Pieces of Me. Pieces of Me is a jewelry company that has pieces that represents that individual. The one I am wearing is ‘DRIVEN‘. I am the kind of person that will always want to push myself to achieve any goals I have set. I just love how whenever I look at my wrist, it is a friendly reminder of who I am. They also have others that say ‘DREAMER’, ‘CREATIVE’, ‘HARD-WORKING’, ‘FRIENDLY’, and the list goes on. You can also get it customized if you don’t find one that fits what you are looking for. I think they would be a perfect gift. I’ve been wearing my bracelet cuff nonstop. Just love what it symbolizes. You can get 10% off their jewelry by using the code ‘RACH’.
Have you guys been to your work holiday party? From what I hear, some don’t have it until January.

My sweet Rachel, I just read your IG post and I agree with you: Just because you are “no longer sick” doesn’t mean it’s over. I understand the fear but gosh, I admire you SO much. For speaking up and sharing your journey with all of us! You are a true fighter!
On a different note, I love this look you would have worn to your holiday party at work. This skirt is to die for, sweets!

I just read your IG post this morning. I think a lot of people with illnesses (that aren’t super visible) feel the same way. People like to assume, which is ridiculous.
But know that your blog family has got your back!
And…I want your “would have worn to office party” dress. It is fantastic — and I never wear red, lol.
It is crazy that people assume but I know people don’t mean it maliciously. Thank you so much for Cheryl!! This means a lot! You definitely would look amazing in red!
No matter what, taking care of yourself is most important. It’s a bummer you’ve had to take a break from working, but you’ll be back stronger than ever soon! And you look beautiful here, lady! This is such a lovely holiday look.

Definitely will be back stronger! Thank you so much Ashley!

Thank you so much!
You look sooo stunning! This dress is just divine. And wow thank you for opening my eyes up to your struggles. I totally thought you fully recovered and didn’t realize there was still things you’re going through. You are so strong and I’ll be thinking of you during this holiday season <3
Thank you so much Tina! It is definitely not an easy one to measure out. Recovery just takes time, but I know I’m getting there.
