Monday Night I joined my husband for a holiday party with his business associates and I wore a winter white dress in satin. With the recent snow we have had in New York, this dress leapt to mind. I am at home in these pictures because I feel self conscious being photographed in public, at night especially, when a flash must be used. I am wearing an a line satin dress and cerise suede platform shoes.
Taking pictures just before going out was a good idea. I got to really see how I looked. I have learned that a camera tells a fuller story than a mirror! I chose a deco inspired, beaded bag with crystal baguettes. It lended a bit of glam to a fairly plain winter white dress. The cerise shoe seemed right for the Holidays!
I brought along a studded mink vest to wear over the dress if it became chilly in the restaurant where the party was held. When I added it, it transformed the outfit to one with a bit of edge. Here I am at home, wearing it as I did later that night. I am glad I brought it, it was chilly!
Before I left for the party I changed into black pumps, so i would not ruin my suede shoes in the snow. I added a black dress coat with a high, ruffled collar in silk velvet. It is Dolce & Gabanna so it is lined in leopard print. My bag looked well with the lining!
Upon returning home from a wonderful night, I changed into cozy pajamas and put my things away. Okay, not really, I just dropped things wherever I wanted, it was a long night!!
I hope that you are enjoying a wonderful holiday season! What are you wearing?
