Que Bella – Gold Stripe Mini Skirt

Husband’s company had their Holiday party Saturday and I had eagerly been waiting to wear the Gold Stripe Mini Skirt. The weather turned bitterly cold on Thursday but I was still determined to wear this skirt so I tweaked the rest of the outfit to accommodate this.

My entire outfit, from head-to-toe, is all J Crew. The sweater is Cashmere Tee in Black. The shoes are the Collection Sloane Velvet Crisscross Pumps I reviewed here. For my jewelry, I am wearing the Salon Necklace and Bracelet from 2009. I originally had the bracelet in Shore Pink and wore it to the Holiday party back in 2009, here. I eventually sold it because I wanted the bracelet and necklace to match. The tights are also J Crew, the Super-Opaque Tights in Black. I usually grab a extra pair at the end of the season when they are on sale.

I had my nails done at Ulta with OPI GelColor in Onyx Black with a GoldenEye accent nail.

I added the Tuxedo Topcoat and my trusty Kate Spade Camel Clutch to finish the look. I am so glad I bought the Topcoat. It was perfect for the evening.

I did keep my hands warm with J Crew Leather Gloves in Holiday Punch, Fall 2011. This year’s version of the glove also has a Holiday Punch color but it’s purple and not Bright Pink like mine.

The entertainment for the night was ZZ Top! They played a mix of everything including some Elvis, Jimmy Hendrix and of course, Legs and Sharped Dressed Man. They look they same, just a bit older when you get up close. 

We finished the night taking some friends to one of my favorite bar for a cocktail before heading home.

Have a Great Evening!

    Dying over your outfit, it's fabulous… every detail. And ZZ Top, oh my gosh they look the same, that's bringing me back!
    You are going to be so happy you found that topcoat for many years, a great coat like that really makes an outfit, don't you think? It's the perfect finish.

    Dani – Thank you so much! I put the outfit on my mannequin first to make sure everything worked like I wanted and when I added the Topcoat I couldn't wait to get ready. It really did make the outfit. I was just missing a black scarf but those are easy to find. Cashmere of course!

    Husband was afraid ZZ Top would not play some of their older stuff but that's what they mostly played. They saved the ones I really remember from the 80s for the very end of the show. So much fun!!!

    You look beautiful as always. Love the rosy cheeks. ZZ Top…I'm afraid I would have stared at their beards all night.

    Um….did you know I also have a mannequin? rofl I get to pick up the topcoat today from UPS. I totally envisioned it as you wore it, but with crazy capri jacquard pants of some sort. Yay for your cold spell! And so glad you had a good time. All of your pieces are luxe and none compete. Very well done 🙂
