12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits Conclusion!

Merry Christmas Eve!  Time to bang out the last 4 days of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits (or Holiday Party Outfits, whatever floats your festive boat!).

On the 9th day of this list we all wore Fur Tops.  Nothing says snuggle better than fur or faux.  Moncler offers furry pockets…


Alice and Olivia’s furry vest would be a spectacular statement piece that would be magical at Christmas dinner (and then equally phenomenal throughout the winter with jeans for GNO or date night!).


Day 10 is dedicated to the onesie – specifically Jumpsuits.


Tibi’s gold jumpsuit delivers the ultimate Holiday spectacular – nothing missing but a bow!

The 11th Day of reversecommuter’s Christmas Holiday Outfit list is a White Christmas.  White is a color that is taking winter by storm (are you appreciating all these double entendres?!?).


White pants equal luxury.  White pants are worn by someone who doesn’t cook all day and wear the meal, or get drooled on, or dirty little hands wiped on, or dog paws jumped on.  Gucci’s white pants really are the quintessential luxury piece, and on sale – yayzies!!!!!

The final item on the list is all about tunics.  Beaded, bright and beautiful!  Pucci’s beautiful blue tunic and Missoni’s stripey poncho tunic are beyond delicious!!!!


Wear it on top of a gorgeous skinny silk or wool pant (see directly above) then enjoy it on a beachy vaca!



I want to wish you and yours the very best for the Holidays, and a very Merry-Well-Dressed-Christmas!

Santa’s Boots

Actually, Day 8 of Day 4 of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Parties (or Holiday Parties = whichever floats your festive boat) is all about Mrs. Claus’ boots!


Fringe worthy or what?  MEOW these Aquazzura’s would make anyone slide down the chimney!  We must all be on the NICE list as these gorgeous boots are now on sale at Bergdorf Goodman!  FALALALALAWOAH!


Silver Bells are ringing LOUDLY about the gorgeousness shimmering on Acne’s silver booties.  Take advantage of the sale price at shoescribe.com, you naughty little elves!


Ho-Ho-Horsebit Python Boots.  Oh Santa Baby pretty please put these in your big red sack for reversecommuter!  Absolutely not on sale but still available at Gucci.com.



Fashion & Finance Friday

6 more sleeps till Santa comes / 3rd night of Hannukah and it is Friday – can you say Holiday Party?!?!?!

Just in case you are stumped in the “whatshouldIweartothatparty?” feel free to peruse the first 7 days of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits (or Holiday Party Outfits depending on what side of the menorah you are sitting on).


The shakeup that shook up horse bits around the world occurred again this week.  In case you were still sobbing loudly into to your velvet Tom Ford for Gucci tuxedo jacket, Gucci once again released their lead designer, Frida Gianini and the CEO, Patrizio di Marco, who interestingly are a real life couple and parents to a 2 year old.


Giannini will depart after her final collection is shown at the Milano fashion week ending February 25, and Patrizio will have become the world’s best dressed stay-at-home daddy beginning January 1, 2015.


Gucci’s holding company, Kering, shakes the world of interlocking G’s every now and then – Tom Ford anyone?!?!?! – and the reason behind this double dipped sword is based on sagging sales figures.  Mamma Mia that is one big lump of designer coal.


Speaking of Gucci Gucci Goo, the SEC has charged AVON for ding-donging some Chinese officials with goodies that included Gucci bags and trinkets from Tiffany’s.


The Avon bribes back in 2006 helped the door-to-door makeup company secure some of the early direct business selling licenses issued by the Chinese government to foreign companies.


$135 Million is the fine – that is a lot of Skin So Soft, just saying…

Whip yourself into a fancy dress frenzy, calm the nerves with a  perfectly chilled flute of champs and ignore the sore feet while you dance the night away on the very last weekend of Holiday Parties 2014!

Shoes – FalalalalalalalaLOVE!

Day 7 of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits (or Holiday Party Outfits if that floats your PC boat) is allllllll about shoes.  WEEEEEEEEEEEEE!


Ode to the Spectator

Saint Laurent’s Lace-Up Saddle Pump (on sale fyi!!) -pair this puppy up with a french stocking and a slit skirt (aka Day 5 on reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits) and Santa will be one happy red suited elf!


Tassels, really need I say more?

Charlotte Olympia’s Fantastic Dolly Suede Fan Tassel Pump is a phenomenally fun shoe – what says party season better?


Oh, yeah, Ostrich Feathers.  That is what says Party Season Better.  Click here for a review of all things plummagey.  Or just click here to buy your own divine Sophia Webster Nicole Sandals.


Fringe is another relative of the flirty dangly-bits family and needs to be in the party wardrobe this season!  Aquazzura makes a sexy beast of a shoe any day of the week, so add a fringe and mistletoe Ho-Ho-Ho!!!!!!!


Sexy Strappy Tops

Day 7 of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits (or Holiday Party if you prefer) is focused on sexy little strappy numbers.

This is reversecommuter’s current obsession.  I mean really, how can I possibly resist?  This Cushnie & Ochs silk top is the ultimate strappy little number!  I love how the bottom skirt is subtle and modest in style to balance the serious sexiness on top.


That top that you wear when you need to feel powerful, feminine and sexy.  Quite the tall order for a teeny weeny strappy piece of silk.  Tibi’s textured cami is SO up for the job.


This is a piece that is in my closet in a rainbow of colors and it never disappoints.  Jonathan Simkhai’s Slit Godet Tank can be under a jacket or stand alone.


The details on the back and the straps, the luxurious silk, the way the material flows and moves in a flattering way – seriously this is THE go to little strappy number.


Slitted Skirts Naughty & Nice

The countdown continues with Day 6 of Christmas Party Looks (or Holiday Party Looks, whichever floats your seasonal boat).

A fashion blogger formerly in the financial sector who lost count of the 12 Days of Christmas?  Yup.  As today is December 17th, there will be 2 postings daily from now until December 24th in order to deliver a complete set of 12 Holiday Looks.

Now back to slits!  Alice and Olivia’s dusty pink slitted long fitted skirt is divine, and would make a perfect accompaniment to a chilled glass of pink champs!


Oh my, isn’t a subtle slit a wondrous thing in a girl’s wardrobe?  Combine that with an exquisite piece of Balmain’s butter soft, chestnut leather and va-va-va-VOOM!


Mini skirts aren’t the only power wielding flouncy in the closet!  A maxi long flowy skirt with an unexpected flash of leggy flesh is palpitatingly delightful!


Etro’s luxurious scarf skirt and Malene Berger’s navy blue number both deliver that leg appeal.


The classic black pencil skirt with a big badass slit is precisely what Jonathan Simkhai had in mind with his modern day interpretation.  A cropped top adds a fun way to celebrate those hard earned abs!


Leather for Christmas…

Or at least for Day 4 of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Parties (or Holiday Parties = whichever floats your festive boat)


Could it be any easier than  a leather dress?   Miu Miu has just the pièce de résistance! Add heels, clutch and beware the mistletoe!


A leather top, adorned with a peplum waist or open back can be the perfect topping to your Party Outfit tree!   Veronica Beard’s leather top even delivers a surprising lace back detail.


Leather pants complimented with a stunner of a blazer (think back to Day 3’s tuxedos) make a mommy outfit a YUMMY MUMMY outfit!  Acne Studios does things to leather that most fashionistas simply dream of touching…
