Christmas is right around the corner (like a matter of hours now) and as we all start to get ready for the various holiday parties we have to go to, whether good or bad, there is inevitably a lot of stressing out about what to wear.
My immediate family sits in the living room and gorges themselves on food for hour after hour, and we still dress up. As if my mom, dad and sisters haven't seen me at my worst, yet on Christmas we all dress up.
I'm not much of one for holiday clothes either. The day you see me in a reindeer sweater is the day Hell has frozen over or I lost a very large bet.

S: "Oh. Oblivion? Do I have eyebrows?"
Me: "Yes bay, they're right here above your eyes, and they're beautiful so don't ever mess with them even if thin brows come back into style."

I will not be getting a special dress or shoes for the occasion due to my current size, but if you're going to be celebrating, there are some amazing Valentine's inspired options out there that are sure to look amazing and make your honey swoon. If you don't have a honey, then you can still buy some amazing shoes just because you're awesome and every woman deserves shoes.
