If you’re like me, not all holiday get-togethers are planned in advance. What to wear when the invite is spur of the moment and the venue is a restaurant? A touch of gleam, some soft velvet, and faux pearls put festive details above the waist… which is what people see most at a sit-down luncheon.
When Purple Poppy sent me this Printed Burnout Velvet Stretch Top to style, I intended to wear it with jeans and dress it down. Then I got a last minute invitation and decided to do just the opposite.
I wore my Eileen Fisher crepe pants that stretch to accommodate any size meal. I pulled out my ruffled shoes which aren’t comfy to walk in for very long but great for sitting events.
This fun necklace is a good balance for my broad shoulders and draws the eye down the way a deeper neckline would. It makes a big statement and is very affordable.
These pants are quite slim so I prefer to wear them with tops cover my backside, which this top does.
I passed a long line of excited children waiting to sit on Santa’s lap. Their parents looked both expectant and harassed at the same time…oh the memories!
