2015! We made it! Wednesday is our usual trash day so it was only fitting that we ended 2014 by getting rid of all our rubbish. I like to try to do the same with my personal garbage too. Start the New Year fresh and ready for anything it may bring. So how was our Christmas celebration? You could tell a lot from our recycle bin; it was positively overflowing with folded up Amazon boxes and empty wine bottles! Sure signs of a very successful holiday break!
Last night we laughed in the New Year at our local comedy club. We’ve done this a few years now and it’s a great way to count down to midnight. And I’m happy to say that the party is definitely NOT over! A lot of people here in Michigan are getting ready to cheer on the Michigan State Spartans as they take on the Baylor Bears in the Cotton Bowl. But going to a bowl game party doesn’t mean I sit around in my sweats! Fashion never takes a holiday!
For today’s activities I wanted to be comfortable but still chic. So I went with my very cool leather skinnies to keep with a trendy and sporty feeling. The great thing about these slacks is they can go with pretty much any type of shoe, including boots when the snow flies. My high heeled pumps help to add height and a touch of sophistication. When going with leather look pants I like to choose a pair with a highlight crease down the center of my leg. It helps to add the illusion of length to my legs and height to me. Close fitting leather apparel can present challenges for us non-models. I’ve found that without a defining type of feature like the crease or a fringe, smooth leather pants can be not enough saucy and too much sausage! My rich chiffon blouse added just the right elegant color. I wasn’t sure what was on the menu for today’s party so I wore the red wine and brought the white! I layered the flowy chiffon under a light grey sweater featuring leather shoulder patches to tie in with the pants. My large black wool hat capped off the chic and elegant look. Of course I had to keep it fun and speak to my signature color. My leopard print clutch bag and bright lipstick took the words right out of my mouth.
