We had our staff Christmas party this evening!!
Of course, spouses were invited too; and the husband of one of my co-workers said “you look like a rock star!” when we arrived at our venue. I decided to interpret this as a compliment (despite the current state of some of our musical celebrities!)… and let it inspire today’s post title!!
I’ve done dresses – gowns, even! – for many staff holiday parties, but this time I decided to go with my floral jeans and this fitted, faux-leather peplum top.
Our temperatures have been a bit milder again recently, and since I didn’t want to cover up my festive look with a coat, I thought these pieces (together with my black wool shrug) would keep me just warm enough to get me from vehicle to restaurant; which they did. But was I cold when my husband took these photos?! Ummm…maybe just a little!!
This feather ring is a brand-new addition to my jewellery collection; I love the way it swoops over my knuckle…so unique!! And my little multicoloured “gemstone”-studded bag was a gift from my mom, who knows the value that an extra touch of sparkle always brings to a look!! Thanks, Mom!!
Please remember my “Twelve Posts of Christmas” contest!! Leave me a qualifying comment (it needs to refer to a specific part of my look) and you will have a ballot entered to win a sterling silver, pearl, and peridot bracelet!! Details are on my November 28th blog post.
