When you kick off the holiday seasons meeting up with friends for a holiday lunch and decide to make an effort beyond jeans.
This A.L.C snake print wrap dress with puff shoulders from Intermix had my name all over it. Casual enough but dressy enough at the same time. I clashed it over classic black slouch boots for exactly the same reason. I am already roladexing more ways to wear both as the holiday season gets going.
ps. The dress has side pockets. You know how I feel about side pockets and to have it on a dress for possible party event rotation is about as dressy casual as it gets.
