Straight No Chaser

Last night’s concert was AMAZING! Seriously, if you ever have a chance to go see this group, definitely do. They were funny, talented, and put on a great show. They became famous via YouTube so they let you film during their performances – no wasted marketing opportunities for them! Here is the (very bad, sorry) video I took of them singing “You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch”. The basses were awesome to hear as they normally don’t get solos.


Going to a show is always a good excuse to get dressed up I think, and the perfect opportunity to wear this blouse I picked up at Ann Taylor. I fell in love with it back in New York actually, but they didn’t have my size so I passed on it. When I found it in my size when I went to return a few things here in Seattle, and at 50% off no less, I had to have it. I actually took back something I bought on Black Friday that I didn’t like as much so that it would fit in my budget. Totally worth it, I think the lace detailing in white on the front and the black accents are just gorgeous and I like the slightly floaty fit. Because it isn’t a figure hugging top, I paired with these black velvet skinnies (another Black Friday purchase) and then accented with a sparkly bracelet and earrings, and my go to winter “spotted leopard” clutch. My Mother In Law gave me this clutch for Christmas last year, and I’m so glad she did – it seems to go with almost anything I put on for parties in December and is much more fun than basic black!  I of course also added my favorite accessory this holiday season, my MAC Russian Red lipstick!

Love the outfit and love your blog. I just started following you a few days ago and I really love your style! I had a fashion question for you. I am attending my husbands Christmas party this weekend and it is not a real dressy dinner, but I want to look cute and festive. I am wearing pants like you have on in the picture above, black and silver sparkly top and I was wanting to wear red heels and red earrings to give it a more Christmas feel. The only red shoes I have are pumps with a slight open toe. Is that appropriate? I just can’t decide! Thanks!!!!


    Thanks you Sarah, glad you are a new follower! I think as long as you live in a climate that isn’t covered in snow where your toes might freeze, the red peep toe will be great! I would let those stand out though and do a silver earring instead of red. Hope that helps, have fun!
