Christmas Party 2011

  Sweater - Etoile, thrifted
Sheer blouse - Ann Taylor, altered, thrifted
Plaid Pants - Old Navy, thrifted
Oxfords - Eject
Star earrings - gift from Keely


D and I were invited to my chef-uncle's Christmas party this year. When planning out my outfits this week, I knew this would be a perfect outfit. I've been hunting a sheer blouse since summer. Unfortunately I'm quite picky about fiber content. So when I found this XL women's long sleeve cotton shirt, it was perfect. I removed the sleeves, took in the body and added some buttons.

I also realized that a sheer blouse had more versatility than I realized. My newest obsession has been layering collared shirts under sweaters. This polka dot blouse is a little different than most dotted shirts. The spacing really appealed to me.

Also I realized I haven't had any doodles on the blog for awhile. So I decided to remedy that today!

  4. I love your pattern mixing here! Adorable. And the plaid showing through at the bottom adds so much. I thought the shirt was printed actually. And such a cute doodle.

  7. Really cute. Love the polka-dots.

    And I just realized one of your assets is your eyes. They are stunningly beautiful. I say that objectively and not because I like you. :)
