Let's Have a Kiki | Merry Christmas

LOCK THE DOORS TIGHT. This dress would be the epitome of a tinsel-meets-ballerina holiday outfit. I wore this sparkly little number to our post-finals party with my pink blazer and burgundy tights, leopard fur coat reserved for the nightcrawling hours. Today it felt right to throw it on for a cloudy and dreary San Diego Christmas to pizazz some festivity back into the atmosphere. With nude pumps, a high pony, and classic wine red lips, everything feels more classy and sassy. But really, let's have a kiki.

The fire in the sequins comes alive with ambient lighting and unfortunately doesn't photograph well. Therefore my cheesy dancing as a human disco ball is reserved for in-person enjoyment. If anyone has any tips on photographing sparkles and sequins, please share your knowledge! I amused myself for a whole 3 minutes reflecting the rainbow with my torso standing in front our tree. I hope your holiday has been wonderful and close to the loved ones around you. Gift-wise, my brother went all out this year and got me the new apple EarPods which fit wonderfully inside my big earholes and produce some quality beats. Santa also left me lime green Play-doh which this 90s kid is freaking ecstatic about. Already I've made dumplings, a lopsided heart, and a bracelet with it while taking breaks to sniff the memorable scent.

Since starting break I've finished The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, a great analytical-but-engaging read to changing your bad habits into productive ones ... and howled with laughter with every page of Me Talk Pretty Some Day by David Sedaris. That I believe completes my goal of 10 books in 2012, surprisingly half of them read during med school. Cheers to two more weeks of exorbitant movie-watching and not getting trampled during after-Christmas sale shopping.

This dress may be the prettiest thing I've ever seen on the internet. I'm seriously in love with it. If it wasn't creepy to print off pictures of yourself, I would say you should frame the black and white one :)

You look beautiful, Angie! I love your dress! Also, I think I had those exact same pumps from Aldo or very similar ones, but I accidentally bought a size too small for me. It was sad.

Merry Christmas!

Have fun with your play-doh!

Love this dress on you. My sister bought it and wore it last month to her birthday outing. Such a fun dress. Hope your finals went great.
I can visualize the dress with the dark tights and the blazer. Cool look.
Sounds like you live in my city (San Diego).
Thanks for visiting me the other day. I am following you now.

Looks very cute! Perhaps you should try to ues a (soft) flash to get the sequins to sparkly or use a lamp/flashlight or anything to shine on it. I never photographed sequins before but I think I would do it like that! :]

You're blog looks nice, I'm going to follow you, greetings from Holland!

This is such a pretty holiday outfit! The soft feminine style of the skirt helps balance out the glam-ness of the sequined top. Have a wonderful break and I hope you're enjoying med school so far!

I tried that dress on but put it back, however after seeing how great it looks on you, I might just get it to wear on NYE... In short: gorgeous!
