Festive Feel

While this little dress has been my go-to this holiday season, I can see myself wearing it year-round, too — the gold and black pattern is festive without screaming “Christmas!” like so many party dresses I’ve come across in stores. If you’re in the market for a cute going-out dress, be sure to hit up Vancouver’s own Mimi McQueen at Metrotown or take a peek at their website — they have a seriously impressive selection of dresses in every colour and style under the sun; something to suit every taste!
