golden dreams of christmas

I really love Celebration. We can walk into town from the house and sit down to have a great meal at a variety of non-chain restaurants. Including the Columbia, again. So. Delicious. We got a steak with bourbon poured over it and flambeed tableside. Amazing I tell you.

This dress is a purchase from part of my birthday gift card, and I love it. The back is perfect, it's got golden thread, and it's my holiday dress this year. This is a little Florida twist on it, and I found the nighttime shimmery Christmas lights the perfect setting.

    1. I'm usually just sitting in my seat snapping away. I have been taking my camera into restaurants for photos for years, so it seems abnormal for me not to have it to my family I think.

  8. This photo shoot you got going on here looks like it could be in a magazine :). I love that belt is adorable and the dress. AH its on sale you make me want to go buy it right now. You need to work mod cloth as a stylist cause you style there dresses so well... but I think I have said that about Anthropologie as well... :)

  11. Ugh...I miss Celebration! I didn't get a chance to try any of the restaurants there.

    I love this dress on you...especially because the opening in the back is right where your cute tattoo is!

  25. Your dress is so pretty! I agree, you cannot replace the benefit of being able to walk to great restaurants from where you live! I have that where I live too and I love it!
