I don’t care what holiday you celebrate or what religion you are, I think the end of the year is a good time to reflect on the year past and maybe, just maybe, how we can do better, be better, in the year ahead. How we can be more kind and more loving. How we can be more caring and thoughtful to the needs of others.
It’s a time to make a point of checking in with family and friends you maybe haven’t seen or heard from in awhile. Shouldn’t we be doing that all the time? Sure. But. Life. I always feel like holidays are reminders to do the things we might forget the rest of the time – Let People Know You Love and Care About Them.
The holidays are also an excuse to celebrate. Eat a little too much. Have a cocktail. Stay out late. Meet up with friends. Do the things we’re “too busy” for so much of the time.
Be a little frivolous. Give gifts. Wear a fun dress! I like to do that! Last week was the Staff Holiday Party at work with an Ugly Christmas Sweater theme…and I took it one step further and got this vintage Christmas wrapping paper looking dress from Cow Cow.
Cow Cow makes a gajillion different customizable items and have a kazillion different ready-made prints and patterns on every theme imaginable. And many items go up to plus size 5xl. That’s what I got and it’s actually a little large, I could have gotten a 4xl and it wouldn’t have been slipping off my one shoulder. It’s also mad affordable.
You can find them on their own website and on Amazon. I think there’s more variety on their website but items are cheaper on Amazon, and especially if you have Amazon Prime you won’t pay shipping. Just be forewarned, if you want something specific in a holiday theme be sure to order well before the holiday because shipping takes much longer, although for $20 they can expedite shipping and you can get your wacky Christmas dress to you in time for your holiday staff party!
This is not my favorite picture of me, but…but…there’s a……..
Here’s a closer look at the amazing dress in all its glory…
Hope you’re taking some time this holiday season to reflect and breathe and visit with loved ones.
