New Year's outfit with a twist

Sunday, December 27, 2015


With 2016 right around the corner, I'm thinking New Year's Eve outfits! If you are looking for something different to wear to a party,  check out this spectacular skirt from C/MEO Collective sold at La Mia Moda Boutique in Andover, MA.  


Like most women my age,  I struggle with the mid-section. Clingy skirts can be difficult for me to wear, yet this skirt is super flattering because of the high waist and the heavy weight of the fabric. It literally sucks you in and keeps everything in place!


I love the movement of the fringe when I walk!


We shot this set at Gianni Interiors in North Andover, MA. 
This beautiful model bedroom was the perfect spot to stage "getting ready". 
 I wish my bedroom looked this good!


I paired the skirt with a simple cream silk blouse (similar here) and a few long strands of pearls.
Ring is by David Yurman (one of my treasured pieces).



Why do so many of my shoots include alcohol? Don't answer that one!


Although fringe is a trend this season, I have a feeling this skirt will be in style for years to come. 
It's different, but not one of those "fly by night" designs.  I call it "classic with a twist!"


I felt like this outfit called for a "solid" shoe to balance out the weight of the skirt. Here I'm wearing a wedge pump, which is very comfortable. Check out these Bandolinos for under $65 in comparison to a similar Lanvin wedge pumps at $595.00! If you decide to go with a "bare leg" as I have, try this leg bronzer by Caudalie--it's fabulous.




For my bag, I chose a simple black clutch with a silver edging
The goal was to keep to the black and cream theme going which is super elegant.


2015 was a tough year (another blog) and I am so ready to ring in the New Year.
Cheers to 2016!

Thanks to my photographer Cathleen Trainor, the best friend a girl could have!
Also thanks to La Mia Moda Boutique for the beautiful skirt and Gianna Interiors for providing the stunning space to shoot.

    1. Thanks Darlene! Well, I was 5'7'', then I was 5'6''and now I'm 5'5 and 3/4''...scary.
      It's funny, I generally don't wear skirts this long as they can make me look "draggy", but this one works! I guess we should never say never.
