No it doesn’t and there’s a really good reason why I went for this look. You wanna know why? Cos you can’t put a price to arriving in style or making a dramatic exit for that matter. 

Hi there readers! If you like style, love colors, are daring and a risk taker then you’re in the right place. Great to see you!

It’s the most fabulous time of the year! Holiday party going has been in full swing and photo opportunities exist every which way you look. Don’t you just love it! I attended not one but two amazing holiday parties given at the Fairmont SF last weekend. This fit with slit dramatic sleeves, a deep V neck, cinched waist, midi length with matching spankies underneath puts the holla in holidays so of course I gravitated towards it. Who doesn’t want to make an entrance in a frock this fabulous? No one I know. And yeah yeah yeah I know its white in the winter but just like you I’m over that cliche fashion rule. A total white look is a great shift from the traditional red for Christmas anyhow. I loved it so much so I tweaked the accessories and wore it to another event during the week.  This all white ensemble (and some gold) is truly what dreams are made of, :))).

I spiced things up with spiky gold shoes, a fur owl clutch (that’s perfect for the night owl, hehe) and the most amazing necklacemy Christmas gift from Takai By Angela. I kid you not, I wowed the crowd. Let’s just take one quick minute and stare at this gorgeous piece. Hard to take your eyes off of it right? Gosh I can never get enough of their fabulous pieces. I brought a few of their pieces I had styled previously to show my friends and everyone was wow'd. Every single one is unique, very carefully crafted and breathtakingly beautiful.

I introduced the brand Takai By Angela to you here, here, here, and here in the past. I take it you must have stopped by this site. Amazing right? What did you haul? And if you haven’t got your shop on just yet, then hurry on over for your holiday hook up. New year parties are still ahead of us after all and they always have great promotions going on not to mention fast shipping. As always, thank me now later.

By the way I behaved so well this year and I got all my wishes from Mr. Claus. You? Bad bad you! You were warned that he was making a list and checking it twice. Thrice in some cases but badness got the better of you, hehe. Oh well, deal with it while I enjoy my goodies :-).

I plan on enjoying an extraordinarily amazing Christmas day. Spending the day at home then bringing a bottle of wine and my most delicious home made fruit cake over to my friend’s to chill for the rest of the evening. Today is all about indulgence (dancing kimoji emoji). Did ya'll see the Kimojis by the way?

It’s my dad’s birthday today, God rest his 'best dad ever’ soul, Amen. My brother’s was yesterday as well. Happy Birthday to him.

Merry Christmas to you all. My gift to you? A heart felt THANKS for always coming through to read. You are amazing!!

I apologize for the one million images but hey, it's Christmas, :))).

  51. Was there a day you never looked gorgeous Idu. Hands down on this dress, you took sheer to another level....funny enough it's subtle and not as scandalous as the ones we see with celebrities.
    Be my Santa please and drop all your clutch bags down my chimney....and one Takai piece too.....a girl can wish, right?

    Happy holidays love, keep the radiance.
