Fly Me to the Moon

2nd day of reversecommuter’s 12 days of Outfits for Christmas Parties / Holiday Parties (whichever floats your seasonal boat), is dedicated to plumage.

Feathers make any outfit frivolous and fabulous!

Easy example is this DKNY skirt, add a white t-shirt, jean jacket and a pair of nude pumps – perfection.

Lela Rose’ feather embellished blouse is a perfect topper for the season, and works with anything to take it up a notch, even a pair of plain dark colored pants.

Lanvin’s gorgeous feathered riding hat makes me believe in all Christmas magic – pretty please Santa I have been the perfect combination of naught & nice!

Speaking of lovely feathery embossed Lanvin lovelies, take a looksie at this dress and it’s feathery trimmed swishiness!  Yes Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enough about me and my Santa list (ongoing in it’s development as it is), let’s focus on the feather adorning Elizabeth and James’ blazer.  Fa La La just got bumped by OOOH LALA!

Lest we forget the original site of ostrich feathered adornment, get a load of Sophia Webster’s ostrich sandals – purrrrrrrrrrrrr or whatever an ostrich says.

Blushing Bubbles POP!

And now it begins – reversecommuter’s 12 days of Outfits for Christmas Parties / Holiday Parties (whichever floats your seasonal boat)

Day One is focused on all things pink.  Because reversecommuter loves a good blush.  This is a phenomenal color to work over the holidaze as it is soft, subtle and is an actual flavor of champs!

Cut-It-Out!  This Philosophy piece deserves a place in your closet.  Wear it now, covet it always.  This will never ever ever go out of style and every single time you put it on you will sparkle and tinkle and look like a goddess.  Not to mention your daughter will count the days down until she can borrow it!

Suit.  DKNY rocks that double entendre like nobody’s business.  This would look ba-NAN-nas with a simple tank or a sexy little cami.  The investment would carry on looooooong after the holidaze as ANY blazer + jeans +t-shirt = perfect solution to whatshouldIwear?

Skirt.  Gucci Gucci Goo delivers THE perfect pink skirt.  Buy now, rock those body hugging curves at all your office parties then wear it forever with a comfy comfy pair of slip on fat sole sneakers, a cropped jean jacket and a simple tank top.  Crazy how easy it is!

Ah please…your making me blush!

Culotte Me Some Slacks!

Culottes cut the fall transition a lot of slack (get it?).  Cropped, wide leg and even with a hint of pleating!  A wide cropped leg with a gorgeously flattering waist, what  a perfect wardrobe piece to wear while bidding adieu to a ridicunculously great summer!

This is going to be my main look for 2014 fall – maybe even investing in cream, navy and gray as I already own 3 pairs of black.

Culottes from The Row

Not quite banishing the ankles and calves behind bolts of fabrics quite yet.

Acne Culottes

Culottes even allow for a little extended life for sandals, mules and kitten heels.

DKNY Culottes

So UGGS, mukluks, and snow boots hold off a little, bring on the culottes and let that tan fade away slowly…..
