‘Tis the season to be jolly

Christmas bells are ringing, Christmas carols fill the air and the dazzling lights so pretty everywhere.

My Spanish style dress is festive for celebrating the joy of Christmas time.

Can be worn off the shoulders.

It has a black velvet bodice, red satin and black lace ruffles perfect for Latin dances.

My red roses shawl keeps me warm while sitting and enjoying my dinner.

I curled my hair for the Christmas dance.

This high low design is high at one side and low at the other, a very unique asymmetrical style.

    A beautiful dress to dance (I saw it in your video). Although it seems of Spanish inspiration, the Spaniards do not dress like this now. LOL. The dress has beautiful details and you look wonderful with it. I love your hairstyle, with hair pulled up, it’s very pretty. I really like the dress with the red dancing shoes.

      Muchas gracias Josep-Maria! I’m sure the Spanish ladies do not wear dresses like this in the street. This style of dress is a costume for dancing and fiestas. I saw Flamenco dancers at a concert in Germany; their dresses were amazing with ruffles and trains. They danced with passion and were very talented. What I like about this dress is that it makes me feel like I’m in a dancer in a musical, it’s so fun! But it’s not a dress I can wear anywhere else, just to a special dance.

      Feliz año nuevo!

      Thank you very much for this lovely comment Margot! I was named after the opera CARMEN. My mother said I looked Spanish when I was born. 🙂

      Time to celebrate!

    Das ist wunderbar, meine liebe Freundin Carmen! You look amazing in that Spanish style dress. I notice that you placed the Christmas tree in your lovely and luminous Gartenzimmer ☺️ Beautiful!
    Do you go to Seattle in January? I’m sure you will enjoy your stay at Jean’s, helping with her Eco boutique Drizzle and Shine.
    Have a great New Year, my dear Carmen! It would be great to get together some day in the spring, wouldn’t it? We have so much to catch up…☺️
    ❤️ Ileana

      Dankeschön meine liebe! I was hoping to go to Seattle again but it looks like I’ll have to wait a little longer. I think I’ll hibernate in the meantime and look forward to spring when we can get together!

      Wishing you a happy, healthy New Year!

      Ha ha! Thank you Jack! That reminds me of Betty Grable who had her legs insured for $1,000,000 WOW! Guess I better get insurance because I need my legs for dancing!

      Thank you Ralph! I enjoyed watching Flamenco dancers (live concert) in Germany and this dress reminds me of some the gorgeous costumes the ladies wore, so I was very happy indeed to find this dress that makes me feel a little Spanish!

      Saludos!
