The Holiday Bee

( Leather Jacket - F21 | Dress - H&M | Portfolio Clutch - ASOS | Shoes - Courtesy of Very.com )

As I mentioned in my previous post, I've been in home body mode recently. However, I managed to squeeze in pictures of my get up for an early Thanksgiving dinner with my girl friends right before heading out for pre-dinner boba. I was lucky enough to snatch this dress at H&M on my recent trip to Nevada for a whopping $10. This was a steal given the velvet top and the pleaded bottom. Thanks to Very I had the perfect pair of heels to go with this outfit. The gold trim lining adds more to the holiday cheer and I am in love with the architectural structure of the straps. From the front they give the illusion of ballerina shoes, don't they? Of course, I can never get too girly in a dress so I threw in a leather jacket to toughen up the look. I purchased this yellow portfolio clutch from ASOS, and although it is a lot bigger than I had imagined it certainly brings out the pop in this all black outfit. Black and yellow, kind of like a bumble bee eh? 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
