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!


The Princess and the Peacoat

Here is the view at the Maine Lake House.

What better place to sit and contemplate which peacoat to buy for Fall 2012.

This GORGEOUSNESS from Balmain is phenom, and on sale, click here.

Gucci naturally has one to choose from too!

Burberry Prorsum offers the epaulettes of grandeur.  Those clever Brits!

Search Mode can be very intense, time consuming and perhaps border obsessive behavior….

and obviously, completely worth it once the treasured object is found!

It all started on a waterfall picnic, when I realized that my Paige Denim cut-offs just weren’t making me happy.  (you know how that is, right?)
