So I had my cousin's holiday party. It was at his house, which looks straight from a Pottery Barn catalog. He said it was casual, but you can never be too sure what another's idea of casual is.
Hair curly. Makeup polished yet subtle (taupe shadow, black liquid liner, pale tannish-rose gloss, nice amount of blush).
Black merino floppy turtleneck from Ann Taylor. Ivory sueded cotton trousers from Ann Taylor. My black pointy boots from Enzo. Silver hoops and cuff.
I am glad I wore this as that the attire of the guests ran the gamut – from jeans and a sweater to a sequined shell with sateen cigarette pants. My outfit seemed to fit nicely, and my Aunt told me I looked as though I lost weight.
