Holiday Sparkle 2014

Last night was my work holiday party.

And, always looking for an excuse to dress up, I had purchased this gold sequin dress from Lulu’s a little while back.  The husband looked dashing in his JCrew and Banana Republic ensemble in grey and burgundy.

When I finally got the Sophia Webster Mila’s a new they would be the perfect edgy combination to pair with the sparkly dress.

They’re graphic and just so cool.  Now that they’ve had their “debut” I plan on wearing them with tons of other skirts, cuffed jeans and cropped pants.

For a clutch, I’d had my eye on a Charlotte Olympia Pandora for a while but haven’t found the perfect one.  In the interim, I got this great customized version from Estoite on Etsy.

I love the details of his combo too. They’re a bit hard to see here but the burgundy shirt has white and blue dots which are picked up in the blue bow tie with white equations.  The cool tones of the blue work with the grey heathered jacket fabric and contrast with the dark burgundy.   Snazzy!

We had a fun time at the party seeing everyone’s outfits and then the two of us went to our favorite taco restaurant for a delicious meal!

Pants and Pumps

For someone who claims to prefer skirts, I’m wearing a lot of pants lately.  My new uniform is fun pants and awesome shoes.

Red Old Navy pants and spiked Louboutin Pigalles…

Black diamond Old Navy pants and mint Kate Spade Karolina Bow pumps..

Jcrew olive military-inspired tuxedo-stripe pants plus old Jimmy Choo Thunder slingbacks…

Old Navy red print pants plus Manolo Blahnik red sequin heels…

Plaid pants and red Valentino Rockstud kitten heels…

I think I can make it through winter like this.
