I couldn’t help but bring out another fabulous all-black outfit for this week’s My Refined Style Linkup! What can I say…black really is one of my favorite colors and when it comes to fashion over 40; when you find something that works, you wear it…A LOT! So today, I am wearing a Victorian-inspired black outfit.
My how time flies when you’re having fun! This week’s linkup really snuck up on me…in fact, I had myself convinced it was next week until one of the other gals reminded me. Hmm, it could be because my son comes in from college in less than two weeks and I am beside myself with excitement.
Victorian-inspired black is one of the seasonal trends for Fall and Winter. It is characterized by its intricate bead work. I have actually owned this blouse for over 15 years, although I have only worn it a handful of times. The bead work and sheer sleeves make it a perfect choice for a Christmas party that calls for a little extra flair.
Don’t you just love this pendant necklace?! I created it myself using a Christmas ornament from Brighton Jewelry. It was just too beautiful to hang on the tree. The all-black palette really allows it to take it’s rightful place as the show piece of the outfit!
However, the holiday fun doesn’t stop there…look at these fabulous bangles from Brighton. One has the names of all the reindeer and the other one lists some of our favorite Christmas carols. Sorry for you, I bought these several years ago, so they are no longer available 🙁
May your Christmas season be filled with joy and all the beautiful things the season brings. I hope you will also have time to kick off your shoes and enjoy it because in the blink of an eye it will be gone.
