This is the final ensemble post of 2017 and we’re ending with a celebration. One real outfit, and one imaginary one, and everyone can participate. I wore my real one last week. I felt like wearing bright colours from head to toe. To some they would be clashing, but to my eye they are harmonious. I combined orange pants with a burgundy turtleneck, belt, booties and bag. I was going to wear my navy or cream coat, but topped the lot off with my shocking pink man coat instead. I also added an orange pom-pom to the bag. The collection below shows the exact items from my wardrobe.

The second outfit is the imaginary one I would wear to the YLF ball. I asked my Fairy Godmother for a long-sleeved classic tomato red ballgown so that I could make a statement with colour without feeling cold. I completed the look with a multi-strand pile of vintage Chanel pearls, a cream faux fur shawl, and a gold clutch. My Fairy Godmother added sky high gold pumps to keep me from tripping on my train. I can of course, magically walk in the four inch pumps just for the night.

Over to you. What was your boldest outfit of the year, and what are you wearing to the YLF ball? Remember that your Fairy Godmother can make any ball outfit happen. Feel free to post your bold and beautiful outfits on our forum. ‘Tis the season to be festive!
