Fashion Friday: Christmas Day In The Morning

Early next week many of us will be celebrating Christmas in one form or another. Some of us will stay home to open presents and spend time with our immediate families. Others will invite extended family members over for the day. Some will go to religious services or less casual family functions. No matter how you celebrate I've got a great outfit for you.

Christmasday

If you're just lazing around the house, maybe cooking Christmas breakfast, you should still look cute. Start with a pair of flannel leggings - these have a Christmas deer pattern. Top them with a "Mistletoe" novelty knit, and pad around in these ivory cable knit slouch booties.

If you're hosting or visiting family try this Blue Canyon Christmas Snow Town Tee over a great pair of jeans with red Bronx brogues. The outfit is comfy enough to play with the kids and cook Christmas dinner without being dowdy.

Finally, if your plans are more upscale Santa has you in mind. How about a McQ Alexander McQueen knit and lace sweater dress and a pair of red Giuseppe Zanotti Crystal-embellished suede ballet flats?

Naturally, before you leave the house you'll need to add a coat to the second and third outfits if weather demands it . In my opinion outfit number one is strictly a stay-at-home ensemble.

However you celebrate, I hope Santa has left you wonderful fashionable goodies underneath your tree!

Sure, some of the items I use are beyond my price range but I’m certain I can find reasonable equivalents within my budget. I would love the opportunity to put some together for you for the next installment of Fashion Friday. If you’re interested email me with your BODS profile and we’ll make it happen!

Fashion Friday: Desperately Seeking Audrey

This week I wanted to do something fun and flirty yet chic and timeless. The idea came to me as I was watching "Desperately Seeking Susan" one day and "Breakfast At Tiffany's" several days later. It struck me how fashion forward and iconic both Madonna and Audrey Hepburn were for their respective generations. I decided to use some of the fun elements of the 80's, the Pink Wayfarers, the Malene Birger Cirkella Bangles, the Kenneth Jay Lane Multi-Shape Pink and Orange Dangle Earrings, and a Brahmin Marilyn Polka Dot Back Pack as an homage to Madonna. To marry this with Hepburn's classic sense of style I chose a White Forever New Sophia Polka Dot Dress, Oroton Pink Bowed Ballet Flats, and a Bow-Accent Striped Visor Hat. To complete the look we have my favorite Black with White Polka Dot Crutches from Coolcrutches.com.

Susan Go-Lightly? Maybe not, but close enough for me to wear without feeling like I'm stuck in my youth or doomed to middle-aged frump.
