I am in full-out exam and assignment mode, and am helping my mother prepare for holiday festivities at home, but I cannot neglect sharing my excursions with you as is my implied promise! So this will be a very quick post to show you a different look that I wore with the dress featured in this recent post.
Last Saturday night was the date of a beautiful birthday party and dinner for a friend at school, held at the lovely King Valley Golf Course clubhouse in King City. Happy birthday, “B”!! Some people know how to throw a party, readers!
For B’s party, I decided to go soft and feminine with this dress. I switched over to nude pumps and bare legs. I added this pink cameo-type necklace with the dark grey hematite necklace that you must realize by now is a favourite of mine, since I keep throwing it into every other outfit! Pale pink or nude, with black and/or dark grey are one of the huge trends for holiday dressing, and also very, very feminine, yet the texture, weight and black leather details of this dress reference business wear and a little edginess as well. I feel the dress is “ladylike” and that is the perfect note to hit for parties at golf course facilities, IMHO. I didn’t have a soft and girly purse for this outfit, but adding burgundy to this colour combination makes it a little sultrier and less “sweet”, so I wore this vintage evening bag that I pilfered from my sister, and matched it with OPI nail polish colour “Susie Says Da” (can anyone explain that name?!).
Shoes: Steve Madden
Cameo Necklace: vintage Holt Renfrew
Purse: Maurizio De Giacomi, from my sister’s closet
Nail colour: OPI
Style Tip #1: If you wear nude pumps and bare legs, your legs will look miles longer.
Style Tip # 2: Edgy WITH “sweet” is a great trend that won’t suffocate your inner feminist in pink fluff.
