The Outfit: December 31, 2010…to January 1, 2011 

Where: Ringing in 2011 at a New Year’s Eve Party at my friends Regina and Petros’s pad.


Skirt: I.N.C.

Black Tank with metal detailing: Banana Republic

Blazer: Banana Republic

Tights: Spanx

Shoes: Franco Sarto

Bag: Coach (fab Xmas gift from my hubby)

Details: I had a completely different outfit prepared for this fantastic party, but at the last minute realized that the dress was not the fit I thought it was in the fitting room.  I tried to add belts and different jewelry, even safety pins, but I had to face the truth, my chest was not adequately (ahem!) covered…  In situations like this I take a deep breath, make a plan to return the item ASAP, and move on to plan B…or C…or….

In this case I went with an outfit I know and love, always feel comfortable and beautiful in and knew I would spend the whole night tugging at.  I love pairing this ruffly skirt with more structured items like this go-with-everything blazer.  

On my shopping list: chic, shiny, effortless dress and closed toe pumps with a higher high heel.

Happy New Year, everyone!
