Thursday Moda #43: Holiday Dresses and Accessories Remix.

Happy Thursday Moda, the second to the last one of 2016. More Dresses for Dressember, more Holiday Looks today. 

Since I wanted to show you how I remix my closet this month, I chose the same accessories but styled them with two totally different dresses. Really, I wanted to wear these Faux Suede Ghilly Stiletto Red Sandals, at least one this month since they are fun, sassy and fancy and say 'Holiday' to me. I also remixed/re-wore the same Chevron Fishnet Tights, the same Crystal Statement Necklace, the same Silver Earrings, the same Black Bow in my hair and even the same little Stretchy Bracelets. I did change purses though, Mini Box Clutch for one outfit and Elegant Crossbody Bag, for the other.

This Snow-Bird, Long-Sleeve Dress from Loft was on my Must Buy list from this year's current Winter collection. I am so glad I purchased it with 40% off. I am wearing the size 4 (I didn't try it on, at the store) since that is my usual dress size at Loft, but I would have perfectly fit into the 2. I actually wore this outfit to work exactly a week ago. I did wear the Red Stilettos and kept them on in the office, sitting at my desk for a total of 3 hours. I then switched to the chunky heel booties I had worn while driving. I must say the red shoes certainly popped here, in a sea of blues, purples and lavenders - the bright yet muted colors of the dress. I got a lot of compliments on this outfit. It is festive enough and the Winter birds are a great pattern! What do you think?! Have you ever paired blue, lavender and purple with red, before?

This dress is courtesy of Melonie. I ordered a size 6, regarding to their chart but this dress is quite loose on me though you can't tell. It is a light scuba material and I could fit a 4, perhaps even a 2. I must say I have lost at least 6 lbs. and it shows. I love the paisley mosaic of this dress that goes from red to purple but from afar it looks black. The Black Sash (off another dress) worn as an OBI Belt was a great idea, especially since the dress is a little big on me. I stayed in the red, black and burgundy family and created a Monochromatic Look, still filled with patterns and textures. I must say I love how the Waterfall Faux Leather Merlot Jacket looks over this dress. I will probably wear this dress to work tomorrow, with the same tights (my 'secret' to keeping warm is layering thin nude tights underneath these fishnet ones) but I will opt for Mid-Calf Black Boots, instead. What do you think?

About 100 outfits were linked last week, so many great looks for the upcoming holidays. A lot of red, gold, silver and some green in the mix. I saw a lot of plaid, tulle, satin and fur too. Narrowing it down to these 6 favorites was difficult. You ladies are fashionistas!
Roxanne wears a 'Burgundy' Chiffon Dress with Knee-High Camel Boots and proves these two colors work together. She looks stunning in all these photos, too.
Speaking of stunning, Sarah is all that and a red rose Southern Belle at the 'Holly Ball'. Her and her man were one gorgeous pair, beautifully dressed too.
Monica's 'Holiday Poncho' in buffalo plaid is perfect over classic black skinny trousers and some sexy leopard pumps. Holiday dressing doesn't have to be complicated.
Chioma's 'Vintage Blazer + Faux Fur' are seriously the perfect duo that compliments one-another.
More 'Festive Fur' and a festive "Baby It's Cold Outside" beaded bag is worn by the always-stylish Shauna. Love that cropped jacket.
Carrie, also, mixed red buffalo plaid on top, black on the bottom and a pop of leopard in 'A Perfect Harmony' Holiday Look which is always a classic.
