Layering again, I decided to warm up a bit - this time in full coverage "Carolina Herrera" style.
More party wear for another party! T'is the season :)
top: Santee Alley / skirts: Tiny Closet Collection / leggings: Target / shoes: Matiko / necklaces: thrifted
Gold accenting, dark burgundy lips and (again) black.and.white. I went with a more retro shape but it's still modern with layered necklaces, leggings and an asymmetric heel.
I'm really not fussy and lavish when it comes to dressing for parties. Accessories are fun but I find I have little tolerance for them. High-waist belted looks are great for my straight figure but I find I can't relax much. And heels are just...heels: fabulous but a handicap. The point is I crave simplicity and comfort in everything I do. So I always have to have an item of relief in my more "formal" ensembles.
My cozy cotton leggings made the cinched waist, necklaces and heels easier to live in.
These heels I've had for a while. A modern thick heel and hidden platform - goes with everything:
one of my first posts - running errands
vintage white dress coat
This high waist skirt I designed as part of my Tiny Closet Collection. I had it in mind for specifically Summer and Winter seasons. It's a newer piece but has managed to be quite versatile already:
with my swimsuit
with flats and a cropped top
Cuddling down for Christmas, I wish all of you who are celebrating a merry one!
