Jingle Bell Frock ~ Retro Christmas

If you've read my blog for long or if you follow me on Instagram then you already know that I love a good jumpsuit.  I believe the little black jumpsuit can replace the little black dress in many instances and can even be a bit more chic because it's unexpected.  So when I was on a recent shopping trip to the Shops Around Lenox looking for the perfect "Jingle Bell Frock", I stopped by American Apparel and I knew this velvet jumpsuit would be the perfect addition to my holiday wardrobe the minute I laid eyes on it!  A black velvet jumpsuit is a little bit retro, a little bit glam and a lot of fun, don't you think?  It's perfect for just about any holiday parties I have on my calendar ~ from Christmas to New Years ~ and would also work for a nice dinner out with the Hubs or even an evening winter wedding.  To give my jumpsuit a Christmas vibe for a recent party I added red plaid pumpssparkly statement earrings, a long gold necklace and of course, a red lip!  To keep things interesting, instead of carrying the expected black or red clutch I paired my outfit with a camo crossbody bag which I have become obsessed with since I got it at Tootsies during the same shopping trip.

Ahhh, I've been eyeing this jumpsuit but there are no reviews and I haven't seen it on any "real" people (just American Apparel models). It looks so cute on you! How does it fit? What's the sizing like?
