When Altuzarra for Target was launched, I loved this glam python print dress, but passed it by since I don’t have much use for a dressy dress in my casual lifestyle. But when I saw it on the 70% off rack a month later, I couldn’t resist! I decided it would be fun to try to do a day to night look with it.
For a daytime look I went with tights and riding boots with a boyfriend cardi. I threw on a scarf for some extra warmth and neckline coverage.
Outfit details: Python dress – Altuzarra (Target)
Riding boots – Nine West American Vintage (DSW)
Cardigan – Lauren Conrad (Kohls)
Earrings – Tilly’s
Bag – Oryany (TJ Maxx)
I wore this look to work and then to a holiday lunch with the gals.
With my work bestie and IG fashionista, Lynn (@lynnnie34).
With very dear friends, Glenda and Sherry.
(Looks at all those presents!)
For the evening, I added classic black pumps, a snakeskin clutch, and a statement necklace.
Perfect for a holiday party or fancy date night.
Dress – Altuzarra (Target)
Classic heels – Apt 9 (Kohls)
Snakeskin clutch – vintage (thrifted)
Collar necklace – Tasha (Nordstrom)
One more very busy day of finals for this teacher and then two weeks off! Woohoo! Bring on the holiday fun!

You look lovely, Dawn! I adore python prints! Perfect dress for lunch with gal pals! xo T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
It's impossible not to feel a bit badass in snake print! 😉
And to think that I never used to wear brown and black together!? Now it's one of my favorite color combinations! I love this!
Right? All those old rules … I always matched my shoes to my bag. So boring!
I love it when you want something, wait, and are rewarded with a sale! This dress looks fab on you! It is perfect for a holiday party or date night. I love it dressed down too.

Thanks so much, Amy Ann! Yeah, even though it wasn't expensive, it was hard to justify a slinky dress, but for 70% off, no justification necessary! 😉

That dress looks amazing on you, Dawn! It fits you perfectly. Love it that you can dress it up and down. The best part was the price, I'm sure! Have a wonderful Christmas week! ~Cynthia
It was a steal! Thanks, Cynthia! Wishing you and your adorable family a wonderful holiday!
I wouldn't have been able to leave this stunning snake-print dress behind either, dearest Dawn!! Great job dialling down the sultriness – with your cardigan and those equestrian-style boots – for a daytime-appropriate look (I have a closetful of fancy frocks that get the same treatment from me!) But I have to say that it REALLY shines as an evening look; such a flattering silhouette…and those legs!! Wow!! XOXO
You're too sweet to me …never stop! 😉 Thanks, Monika! OXOX
That dress is adorable dressed up or down! What a great find!
Thanks so much, Laura!
Very chic, and you were quite right to grab this piece up … looks lovely on you. I always envy women who can wear this style well … I can't (not flattering for my elderly boobage) but you young things do it so well!
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and all the trimmings to you, Dawn Lucy, and all you kith and kin!
Well I don't get called a young thing very often, so I'll take it! 😉 Thanks sweet Jan! Hope your holiday was fab!
Hey, thanks for including me in your blog. I really loved how you styled your Python dress. That dress works well with boots and also with heels. It is great to wear to work and also to go to party. That necklace is really amazing. I love all your great pictures with all your gorgeous looks. Thanks for sharing dear.
Aww thanks sweet friend! OXOX
Yowza, you look smokin' hot in the pic with the dress plus the black high heels. Wow! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season! XO, Jill
Aww, thanks Jill! You're a doll! OXOX
Very smart woman you were to grab that dress, it was made for you. Brilliant styling with how you dressed it down for day-time wear. But the glam of the night-time and party styling is out of this world beautiful on you. Enjoy your holidays and your well deserved break.
It really was made for evening, right? I think so too! Thanks Trina!
I NEED to get on this Target collaboration!! I have to find out where they are selling Altuzarra for Target here in Italy and get myself some python! This dress is so perfect for the holidays because it is both refined and sexy, you look fab.
