Christina Perrishe of the epic Twilight wedding song—is really in the holiday spirit! The singer just debuted her video for “Something About December,” the lead single off recently-released holiday EP, A Very Merry Perri Christmasand it brings to her sentimental song to life by mixing nostalgic home videos with her modern-day look. “I love everything about this video,” she told InStyle.com when we caught up with her to find out about the seasonal clothes she wore for the clip, including a red sweater dress by Parisian brand Irfe and a green dress from retro shop Stop Staring, both of which she paired with traditional pearls. “I wanted to wear something very classic and a little retro,” Perri added. “The song itself has a very ‘70s feel to it, and the location we chose was an old ‘70s style house, so the clothes had to really match. The two dresses were holiday in color, but very classic. The green one was my favorite!” (Shop the dress for $158 at stopstaringclothing.com.) And there was a very special lady who inspired her look: “I wanted to give a little nod to my mother, who this song is really about and dedicated to, so the pearls were for her,” Perri said. So sweet! Watch the full clip above. Perri’s album is available at amazon.com.
