Happy Thanksgiving to My American Readers and Happy Chanukah to my Jewish Ones! Monday I wore a chinchilla fur trimmed, trouser suit to beat the cold and wind, as I walked to meet my husband and friends for dinner. This menswear inspired suit gives way to feminine luxury with the addition of the super warm, and sumptously soft chinchilla fur. It Is Bill Blass Couture, and I bought it second hand on Madison Avenue at a shop called Encore. They have the most fabulous clothing! I am wearing it over a F21 pussy bow blouse (now how is that for hi-lo mixing!) and am also wearing a thinsulate tee underneath which helps me stay warm without adding bulk. My ankle straps pumps are from Nordstrom, and my red bag is calf fur and snakeskin made by Lanzetti by Lexiapel, and purchased years ago on eBay Italy, for an excellent price! I think the outfit of a grey, fur trimmed suit really needed this red accent, and the bag has a lovely texture that Is not apparent in these shots. Additional photos: Now you are wondering.. Did Elle have her makeup and hair done again? Yes, And I had Dea take the photos again for what will be three posts on dressing up for the holidays. SO credit where it is due:

What do you do differently for the holiday season? I love to be in NY for this time of year. The stores and Avenues are all dressed in lights, and people are cheery, unless they are on iine to buy something the day before Christmas! I am attending three Thanksgiving dinners this year ( long story), and then will settle back and relax, drink some wine and wrap some gifts! I hope this post finds you in good cheer!
