Holiday Glamour


When we received the invitation to my husband's company Christmas party, it stated the dress code was "holiday attire".  That seemed very cryptic to me, so I had him ask around the office to find out what people typically wear to this event.  The answer?  A sweater and slacks.  Clearly, he asked another man.  Unsatisfied with this response, I decided to put together a look that met the requirements (wasn't overly dressy), but still felt glamorous & special.  Of course, I ended up getting bronchitis and we couldn't go...but this is what I'd planned on wearing.






What I'm wearing:
Gap blouse & trousers (also worn with green here), Vintage stole (via eBay), Forever 21 necklace, ELLE pumps (last seen here), J. Crew clutch (on sale here), Lips: L'Oreal Le Gloss Mystic Mauve

What an absolutely gorgeous outfit. Loving how you are sporting the white pants (whoever says you cant wear white after labor day was just proven wrong). The fur is so gorgeous!

Happy Holidays!!
