Holiday Attire for Less — Or a Lot

November 6, 2014

Now that Halloween is offish over, it is time to start planning for the holidays. And by planning I mean financially planning. 

Dun dun dunnnn.

Between the Christmas parties, the myriad Christmas gifts and the now four birthdays that occur in my immediate family between November and Christmas (baby nieces are winter babies), this time of year things get a little tight. Tight like a tiger. 

I’ve already started buying my Christmas presents for my dear family members (more on that later) but I’m also planning on what, if any, holiday attire purchases I need to make. Wilson’s company Christmas party is coming up soon and I also have two December weddings. And for me personally, when I try to shop for a specific occasion in mind, I never find what I want and often settle for something that I’ll likely never wear again. Equaling a huge waste of money. 

So in an effort to stay ahead of any wardrobe meltdowns mishaps and money blunders, I’ve picked out these two pieces that would be perfect for a holiday occasion.


Holiday Attire -- Save and Splurge
dress / jumpsuit

The dress is very affordable at $79 and the silhouette would be flattering on both athletic and curvaceous shapes. It’s all about creating and accentuating a waist. The jumpsuit is absolutely fabulous with a less than fabulous price of $428. Ouch. So, it’s up to you and your wallet. Y’all talk it out and decide what you can afford. Remember, paying off your credit card at the end of each month is the new black. 

Tomorrow is Friday…

    I guess I’m old, but I’m not crazy about that red jumpsuit anyway.
