One of the never-ending dilemmas of the "world" perhaps for every woman of the civilised world is the selection of the right dress to wear for Christmas Day dinner.
Here in the Czech Republic we adhere to traditions, and so we must also take into account the fact that on this special day you cannot be served, but are on the contrary obliged to run around the entire family YOURSELF (the fact that your husband got the one task of taking care of frying the schnitzels, but as a result sprayed the entire kitchen by hot oil will be discussed later on). Not even talking about the endless preparation of the Christmas menu...
So what is one to wear to feel comfortable buy glowing? My top selection of the best dresses will certainly come in handy. Let´s go to it!
My first choice fell on the dress “Sequin Velvet Midi Dress”, which particularly captured my attention thanks to its bright silver colour literally reminiscent of a Christmas comet! Sequins which are precisely sewn onto luxurious velvet: divine! Furthermore, the combination of Paris blue with silver is an undying classic! And the cut? It resembles a dressing gown, which is precisely what we want! A cut that can handle not only all sorts of yogi positions in the kitchen, but tanks to the belt you can also tackle the twentieth type of Christmas cookie from your grandmother.
The price: CZK 13,630,-
But it you are one of those women who celebrate Christmas literally in royal style, you are sure to appreciate a dress by Rebecca de Ravenel "Black Strapless Silk and Wool Blend Midi Dress". This style reminiscent of the one of Jackie Kennedy is not only beautiful, elegant and classic, but above all absolutely timeless! In addition, their cut offers to prerequisite level of comfort and the luxury velvety trim in the décolletage perfectly accentuates the magical Christmas atmosphere.

This is just a bit of diversion, since the price tag of this "Strapless Long Gown" is the same as that of a smaller car. However, billionaires, oligarchs and goodness knows who else are also only people and will certainly appreciate my TIP OF THE DAY. I certainly do not wish to endorse the unwritten Czech rule that success, power and money are undesired in case of other people. On the contrary, we accept it as an incentive to work even harder and carve out some for ourselves, too! This dress is a dream. Elegant gold, disappearing into nothing like tiny bubbles in a glass of Champagne… Simply a jewel!

And now back to the ground! I chose a dress for you which will literally turn you into a walking present. And no wonder. Each one of you has gathered enough merit points throughout the year, so there is no reason to put on a boring LBD. Here, I enjoy not only the colour, which evokes the Czech Christmas carol "Purpura", but also its cut. It is clear that perhaps everyone is sampling all sorts of sweets already throughout Advent, cookies and chocolates from St. Nicholas and such like. And this dress is simply a clever way of concealing a couple of inches extra,...

And to conclude, here is a little red cherry on the cake. And that is the first lady of the USA, Melania Trump. She is, despite all here mishaps basically perfect in one sphere. What sphere is that? Of course, we are talking about fashion. She has, as a former model, fashion style in her little finger, and I love it. Among my Christmas champions belongs the "Silk and Wool dress" by Christian Dior. They are simply perfect and accentuate perfectly the Christmas atmosphere and the overall magic. Hello, hello ...Family Trump talking!
