Holidays and Romance

Today on the blog, I begin a three-part series on holiday dressing featuring Tobi.

I know that for some people this might come a little bit too early but personally, I believe it's the best time to go out shopping not just because it is around this time that shops start putting out their holiday (aka fall/winter) collections but also because you don't want to get caught in the December rush. If you like the convenience of online shopping, it is also the best time to start looking at online catalogues and start ordering, if you want your items to arrive just in time for when party invites start coming in!

For the holidays, I like to stick to classic elegant lines instead of the poufy dresses and frilly designs that have become so typical of holiday party dressing.
For this first look from Tobi, I am donning this rich burgundy number featuring a deep V neckline that overlaps to a fitted waist, and softly flared skirt. The dress has a sexy racer back embellished with rich in between lace detailing. 

Burgundy is my favorite color for the holidays. It is elegant and festive at the same time especially if you dress it up with simple gold and black accessories. 
The soft material of this Tobi dress is flattering for most figures because it drapes perfectly on the body. Lastly, I love the attention to detail and fine workmanship that goes into Tobi apparel. The stitching on this dress is clean and precise. I also love that the skirt is fitted with a soft satin inner lining since the main fabric is light and sheer.

The best part about choosing classic designs like this one is that they're reusable long after the holidays are over. I know I'll definitely be keeping this dress in my closet to use on a special occasion or two.
