For an office holiday party, I think the best strategy is wearing something that is appropriate for any time, and making it seasonal with accessories. That’s why this lovely plaid jacket and skirt from Modern Gypsy strikes me as the perfect holiday party outfit. It’s got the holiday colors, but is not too bang-pow-Christmas-in-your-face. Where I work less than half the staff celebrates Christmas as part of their religion. If we had a party for all our staff religious holidays from Eid to Diwali to Yom Kippur to Vesak and so on – well, we would have a lot of parties. So, we don’t have a party – just leave early for happy hour one day. This works for happy hour too. I love how this is so professional, yet so exuberant.
I love Stiletto Moody’s Pinup shoes. Her colors are so rich and saturated. This is not a weak, apathetic red. This is stand on the corner with a bullhorn red. I go back to these shoes again and again and again because the always look hot and the colors are always so rich.
Night Before Christmas necklace and earrings from Miyazu and the Miyazu hair ornament are what moves this dress from everyday great style to holiday style.The updo is Trish from Truth.
The hair ornament is so beautiful it deserves a closer look. and by the way, isn’t the gloss on the lips luscious?
The skin is from Curio’s Elf series – the Holly makeup. I love the glossy lips on this makeup.
