Casual Holiday Party Wear

I don’t have any fancy holiday plans, this year. I attended my Toastmasters annual party in sweats (albeit STAR WARS sweats). For the Western Agility Group party, I knew to wear sturdy, comfortable clothing. No dogs are invited, but the Big Box Game requires comfy shoes and freedom of movement.

Jacket, BCBG Max Azria (consignment). Shirt, Salt Valley (consignment). Tunic, Urban Behavior (swap). Leggings, Allen B. Boots, Style & Co (thrifted)

The Big Box is actually a dozen wrapped and sealed boxes nested inside one another. Prizes are slipped between each layer and the grand prize, a gift certificate to WAG, is hidden inside the final box. To play, the participants line up and file past the Big Box, rolling a pair of dice on each pass. A seven or twelve gives one a chance at the Big Box! The lucky roller dons oven mitts, a Santa hat, and scarf and attempts to open as many layers as possible (and claim the prizes revealed) before the next participant rolls a seven or twelve. I got three chances at the Big Box and documented two of them, but the video doesn’t even begin to capture the frenzy of the game. You can see, though, why I dressed sensibly for the event.
