Interior Decorating and Design, Life and Style
Friday evening was my husbands holiday business party. Although the word “party” hardly covers the gala style event they put on each year! It’s always a large affair around 5,000 people and takes two floors and multiple ballrooms downtown Detroit at The Marriott in the REN CEN. I knew that I had to glam it up as most do for these functions, and I think that I did a pretty good job throwing together a few old things, and a few new things. I wanted a little sparkle and shine and DIDN’T want to wear black as I always do. I also knew that I didn’t have time to really go out and scour the stores trying to locate what I had in mind. To the web I went and came up with the dress first. Shoes next and added a few new bracelets and an old pair of gold dangle earrings and a large bauble necklace (it made its debut finally!)
Suzy Chin Dress $110.00 Nordstrom or Bluefly
Gold Bamboo Bangles $58.00 Nordstrom
Stella and Dot Necklace (I’ve owned a while and not available anymore)
Christian Louboutin glitter peep toes…. (mine were by Nina, bronze glitter Kallie, and only $69.95) Gotta love DSW!
Hoop earrings with lucite stone drop…(these are old and from Tori Spelling’s HSN line I believe)
Here’s how the final result looked…I wish I had a full shot with the shoes in the pic…but it was hard with three kids and two puppies running around. The sitter shot this and we ran out the door! I wore my older faux fur mink coat and lace and bow gloves to finish it all off. I love the fact that I got to wear some new things and some old things together, and also did it all in a budget savvy way.
ta ta for now and Happy Holidays!
