Christmas ... What I Wore

 I finished my new Christmas brooch necklace
just in the nick of time for
Christmas Eve dinner!

 I spent last year searching for vintage holiday brooches
large enough to do the statement piece I would be excited to wear.
The three large red flowers
that brought it all together
are actually ornaments!

 Each year we host dinner at our house
so the Saint James breton I got in Paris
paired wonderfully with my anthropolgie ball skirt...
I always love the  mixing of casual and glam ...
It fits my SoCal lifestyle perfectly.

 The silver ballet slippers I bought at 
L'Opera in Paris were the perfect finishing touch 
for my hostessing ensemble!

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  4. This ensemble could not be more perfect. It is festive, yet classy, and chic, and stylish, and even playful. But the best part is that you somehow put an elegant outfit together that is also practical for being the Hostess. You are such a glamorous role model. (Tori says I need to step it up a few notches, haha). Our jaws are still on the ground admiring that beautiful creation of yours, yes, I'm talking about the necklace. Wow, your talent for creating beauty is astounding.

    Big hugs Tamera!
