Leave it to the incomparable Thea Porter to bring some "Hippie Couture" sensibilities into Holiday dressing. Better yet, this raspberry chiffon dress with sparkles is not an exclusive dress for the month of December, but ideal for when the weather gets warm and you have outdoor parties. How chic is this dress with a pair of flat sandals in August? Okay, call us a Cockeyed Optimist because as we type the rain is coming down in Los Angeles, but this too shall pass and this dress shall be worn for many months of the year, or so it is written. Whoops, we are on a weird "bible speak" tangent suddenly, but back to the dress. The raspberry gauze like chiffon has a a great key hole neckline and sheer sleeves. We are showing the dress with a 1970s YSL belt which is not included, but we do like the idea of wearing this dress with some sort of sash or waist cinch. We all know how hard it is to find chic long sleeve dresses. This Thea Porter is chic and sexy and has a nice ethnic luxe flavor. Plus the sparkles give it a little jolt of festivity.

Not feeling like holiday partying, then you can still buy this dress and wear it on a desert island!
