Christmas is my favorite holiday, and Autumn and Winter are my favorite seasons. I love singing carols, warming myself by a nice fire, and spending time with family. On Christmas Eve, I went to see Committed perform. Committed is an a cappella group of six male vocalists from Huntsville, Alabama. The group won the second season of the musical competition, The Sing-Off. Their freshman self-titled album, Christmas songs, and several singles are available on iTunes. Here are a couple of pics. Please excuse the poor quality (as I accidentally left my camera at home, so the photos were taken with my phone).
For my Christmas Eve party, I scaled back the over-the-top decorations and opted for a splash of unexpected color . On Christmas, my family and I continued our tradition of going to the movies, and then we shared a Christmas feast to rival any celebration rhymed about by Dr. Seuss (minus the roast beast).
THE COMPLETE LOOK
The color story for my Christmas Eve party was inspired by peacock feathers. I love the combination of teal and varying hues of metallics like gold, copper, and bronze.
MY CHRISTMAS EVE ENSEMBLE
I decided to wear an ivory lace camisole, a black velvet skirt with ivory lace trim, and a black velvet blazer.
I wanted an overall vintage theme. I used metallic pearlescent white, metallic silver, and charcoal gray eye shadows with a black liner. I polished off the look with a lippy in rich red.
MY HAIR STORY
I french-rolled the back of my hair and used a sparkly rosette clip to separate it from the two-strand twist-out at the top.
