Christmas Eve Attire

This year for a special Christmas outfit I wanted to get a dress that I could wear often throughout the Fall/Winter season. I also was not feeling the typical red/green this year. I found myself gravitating a lot towards a rich oxblood color and found this budget friendly option from 
Christmas Eve Attire

I am also trending a little darker and moodier than last year's cheerful little red number

(also a Modcloth find) so I plan to toughen up the look with my black booties (similar), gold details, and some fun tights I found at Target. The ones I have aren't as dramatically embellished as the ones pictured, they just have little metal gold polka dots on them. It has also been sub-zero here in Chicagoland recently, so I threw in a black snood (ah - I love British terms) to keep my neck and shoulders toasty in this deep freeze. I may even get crazy with the scarf and twist my black scarf together with a matching oxblood scarf to tie in with the dress - we shall see!

It isn't quite as festive as I would usually go, but I think I am going to love the more casual, but tougher feel of this year's look. What do you think? Do you already have your holiday outfits planned?
