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 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!
Here are my IRL pics of my outfit from Saturday night.
I got my haircut that morning and went crazy short in the back. My hair has all kinds of cowlicks back there and my stylist hates dealing with them. It’s funny hearing him grumble when he gets to them. He finally he had enough of them over the years and decided to whack it all off. I’m glad he did because I wasn’t bothered by the ruffle around the neck on the Frances cami.
REO Speedwagon played so it was great to remember all those songs from my teenage years. We had a lot of fun.
Have a great afternoon and don’t forget about my GIVEAWAY!
~Yes, that is my “Grinch” Christmas Tree behind me. We found it at a cute little home boutique in Knoxville two years ago. We got rid of our 6 ft tree and brought this little green “Grinchy” tree home with us. I love it. Sometimes I wish I had a big tree to decorate with ribbon and silver and lots of lights but I like to keep things simple and Husband is very practical so it works for us.
