Ahh that wonderful time of year is near — snow will soon be falling, Christmas trees will be sprouting all around, ice skating at Central Park will commence and thousands of shoppers will struggle to find the perfect holiday dress. Normally I procrastinate so much that I am rushing around the mall on Christmas Eve and it takes me hours of shuffling through the crowds and the lines to finally find a suitable garment. By the end of my endeavors I am left exhausted, cranky, famished and quite frankly, pissed off. But this year I am way ahead of myself; I’ve found the perfect holiday dress, and more than a month early (though I’m not sure if I’m saving it for Christmas or New Year’s).
I have to extend my sincerest gratitude to Marie Claire this season, because they covered this wondrous dress in their plus-size winter wear section. As soon as I saw the photo in the October issue I knew it had to be mine. I’ve long been a fan of ASOS’s curve department, but never have I found something quite so lovely yet refreshingly minimalistic. I’ve purchased their “Dolly Skater Dress in Gold Brocade,” (see first image) and I really can’t wait to try it on. I think it’s the first time I’ve ever been excited about a holiday outfit, so thank you Marie Claire and ASOS for your fantastic incorporation of plus-size fashion!
Side Note: Though I instantly fell in love with the gold dress, it was a hard girly battle to choose between that and the others: “Skater Dress in Sequin and Lace” and “ASOS Curve Dress with All Over Embellishment.” But for all those curvy gals out there in need of holiday apparel, please consider purchasing them since sadly I could only get one :p
