Christmas Party 2011

Sheer blouse - Ann Taylor, altered, thrifted
Plaid Pants - Old Navy, thrifted

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!


  1. LOVE those pants! I'd steal them from you if I lived near you!

    Cute little doodle too, love it!

  2. That's a very festive sweater!

  3. I love your sweater, your outfit is so cute and so is the doodle

  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.

  5. I've been liking sweaters and button up shirts lately too, and the plaid pants are cute.

  6. Your doodle is SO awesome! :D love your sweater and plaid pants :)

  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. :)

  8. Yay! You found your shear top! I love it layered under this sweater and those plaid pants are killer!

  9. What a fun and fabulous holiday outfit! I love that it's festive without being too costume-y. And I really love the cute doodle :)

  10. i like this holiday outfit, red with plaid pants!
