Holiday season is here for real now! In today’s holiday look, I’m sharing a couple items that bring holiday red and holiday edge to the table. The items are also special to me. The dress is by a young, talented designer–Olivia Rae Designs–in St. Louis. You may remember her name from my Good Housekeeping article about St. Louis. Some of her items are available at a boutique gem right in my neighborhood. The jacket is a custom-made piece from The Jacket Maker, which traveled across the globe to get to me.
What I’m wearing:
Let’s talk about the dress. It’s a fiery red that’s simply perfect for any occasion you want to stand out at. Without a doubt then, it’s a go-to holiday red dress. It has a fitted bodice and a ruffle bottom. Olivia picked this dress out for me, and I’m glad she did. I usually avoid fitted silhouettes, but there’s something special about this one. It’s so flattering and hugs you in all the right places. For reference, I’m wearing a size 4.
Of course, it’s freezing in St. Louis again. So, no holiday look is complete without a jacket that packs as much punch as your holiday dress. This leather jacket is it! It’s by The Jacket Maker, a company that strives to simplify personalization in fashion. We all deserve the perfect fit, right? Well, The Jacket Maker gives you that every time.
My exact jacket is the Smolder Black Leather Biker Jacket. It had me at the color, the zipper closure, the zipper cuffs, the burnishing…seriously, I could go on. The winning detail, though, is that the jacket was customized just for my weight, height, and chest. When it arrived, it was perfect!
