Star of Wonder
Buffy Mosely casts her own magic in a saturated velvet dress, $41.99, from Statement Boutique in Dallas. Chain bracelet, B. Watts + Co.
Oh Holy Night
The perfect holiday party dress, this mocha lace maxi by Peach Love from Statement Boutique is stunning and deceptively comfortable, with its stretchy mini-skirt lining overlaid by soft lace, $62.99. The length is dramatic, the lace romantic, and the flowy silhouette forgiving enough to withstand seconds at the holiday buffet.
The 12 Days of Christmas
Two looks in one: On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me … a navy Matilda Jane Clothing Hold the Key peasant dress, $76, with a lacey Spoonful of Sugar dress-extender underneath, $58 (shown below). On the second day of Christmas … I ditched the dress and paired the extender with the Matilda Jane Mind’s Eye vest, $68, and a vintage choker. (Way more practical than turtle doves.)
