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.

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!

Big Bags

The question is why does this crazed, party induced, fabulously fun time of the year produce BIG BAD EYE BAGS?!?!?!

Solution – Dr. Brandt.  Honestly if it’s good enough for Gwyneth & a bucketload of super models, then why shouldn’t reversecommuter slather it on?

What is a girl to do? Obviously a little shopping but also a little planning goes a long way!

Pick a color and invest a few pieces in it. Clearly I went for the purple fuchsia.  Take this same dress, different jewelry, add a pair of patent boots, bare legs et voila – new outfit.  Alternatively, take the booties add white blouse, leather jacket and black slim leg dress pants et voila – new outfit.  Invest in a make-up sequence that compliments the color of the outfit and own it all festive season long!

Apologies on the blurry mirror photo – none of my IMMENSELY talented 8 year old photographers were available.
