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.
