(Going) Out-Skirts and The Fringes

Yesterday I went to dinner at the home of family friends.  It was another holiday celebration-type event, with exquisite food but open to a range of dressed-up casual.

Naturally, I took this as an opportunity to wear an outfit that I had not yet had a chance to test drive!

Fantastic trends I love in this combo:  electric blue, black and white houndstooth, fringey shirts, leather-trimmed items.  I kept this outfit unified by choosing my all-silver cross so as not to take away from the black and blues, and I added the crystal bracelet set from The Bay for the same reason.

What I’m Wearing

Necklace: Forever XXI

Crystal bracelets:  The Bay

Shirt: My mom’s design

Skirt: Dot’s, Victoria B.C.

Shoes: Lindsay Phillips from Town Shoes

Houndstooth Purse:  Nine West

Alpaca Scarf:  Sentaler

I wanted to be dressed-up enough to show the hosts I appreciated being a part of their dinner party, respectable enough to hang out with conservative, older professionals and still dress my age (YOUNG!!) at the same time!  Do you think I hit the mark?  Please share how YOU would handle these dressing demands by commenting below.
