wiw 10.17.13

So my first party guest has already arrived. My best friend from the DC area is staying with us through the weekend and I'm of course still preparing for the party. This outfit combines my need for warmth with my new fascination for deep reds this season. Happiness factor is very high. My next post will be my party outfit. I think I know what I'll wear but then you never know how you'll feel the day of about a pre-planned outfit. Happy Thursday ;-)

    Great skirt and I really like how the shoes and jacket bookend each other.

  • Neel replied 10 years ago

    You have some unique pieces that you style very well!  Love the jacket and the skirt!  The booties go very well with the jacket.

    Can't wait to see your party outfit :)

    You look lovely. So excited for you. I am sure you will have a blast this weekend, and how fun that your friend is in town!

  • Suz replied 10 years ago

    Gorgeous! I love the skirt. I can't see the red here (on my laptop and I guess the colour reproduction is lousy) but I take your word for it, and I just know your party outfit is going to be stellar! Have fun celebrating with your friend.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, lady!

    Suz - the resolution is kind of grainy in the picture. My reference was to the broader range/scope of  dark red shades which would encompass burgundies, plums, purples, crimsons etc.So that would cover my jacket belt shoes and some of the threads running through the skirt. There's probably nothing wrong with your computer.

    Your mastery of fit and proportion never ceases to impress me.  You look cozy and lovely.

    Great outfit. Vickie

  • catgirl replied 10 years ago

    Absolutely stunning. I am on my phone though and can't see the deep red!

  • Day Vies replied 10 years ago

    This outfit was warm and toasty . The weather did odd things yesterday. It was cool, it rained, it was breezy, it was sunny. I loved the shape of this. The jacket actually nips in at the waist creating a nice fitted silhouette with no tailoring. Glad you all liked it ;-)

    Gorgeous and rich look, DV.  Is there any color combo you can't wear beautifully?  :)

    Enjoy your guests and party preparations.  Looking forward to seeing your party look!

    I never thought I would be writing "I'd wear _____ in a heartbeat" twice in the span of five minutes, but it applies to your truly gorgeous jacket. I love the elegant skirt, and everything is paired up so tastefully so that you look festive and holiday-ready. 

  • Day Vies replied 10 years ago

    @ Mochi -- ((blushing)) thanks :-)

  • Pat_P replied 10 years ago

    How pretty! I find your style really inspiring.

  • Ornella replied 10 years ago

    Soft, textured, rich. I love how the grey sparkle in the hose (that is what I see at the photo) elevate the whole outfit to - luscious. Lady, you really cannot put a fashion foot wrong .

    This is a really pretty winter princess look. Hope the party is a blast!

  • Day Vies replied 10 years ago

    Ceit - Winter princess -- I love the sound of that. I think the jacket give it that feeling.
