I don't have photos from Christmas week because I was traveling (and sick).

I was making a significant effort to break out of the black legwear + black footwear rut, so there's a bit of variation here. I'm not sure they're all successful!

1-2: Loft blue suiting dress over Uniqlo merino sweater. With T Tahari navy coat from NAS.

3-4: Eshakti cranberry-colored dress with high neck. It's hard to tell, but the shoes are a near-match.

5-6: ASOS green ruffle dress, with green shoes and patterned gray tights. The green is very dark, so I really want not-black tights for this dress.

7: Pink merino sweater again and forest green skater skirt. I love pink and green together, and even more when one is light and the other dark.

8-9: Red turtleneck and black quilted skirt. Worn to church, so yay for tall red shoes! Downton Abbey jewelry, which happens to look like snowflakes.

10: Flowered Modcloth dress again, this time with tall black boots.

11: Pink empire waist dress with burgundy leggings and shoes. (The Find shows a red dress; I wish I'd gotten that color as well!) It was a cold day, so I wore light blush/purple socks that kind of sort of read as nude. I'm not sure if it was a successful look, but I was warm and the shoes fit better than usual.

12: Loft dress and pink sweater again, this time with booties. They have a fold-down cuff that's lined with fur, so either there's a thick furry cuff or a slimmer, longer top with a fur edging.

13-14: Green ruffle dress again, this time with tall black boots and snowflake earrings with green.

15-16: ASOS turtleneck dress in green, with gray patterned tights and black flat shoes. Silver leaf necklace and pale green amethyst stud earrings.

17-19: Fancy wear for my concert. Navy with dotted illusion dress (eShakti). New pewter & silver shoes from ASOS. Faux pearl demi-parure modeled after Queen Josephine's. And because it was frigid outside, 1940s mouton coat with enormous shoulders and sleeves. (The temperature had dropped 50 degrees in 12 hours and the wind was crazy.)

20: Black embroidered eShakti dress with bell sleeves and silver shoes. Holiday wear for work.

21-22: Pink dress and gray tights. Blush pink ballet flats with ribbon ties. (The shoes are too peach in the closeup; they're really ballet pink.)

23-24: Green turtleneck dress and leather jacket. Instead of black, I'm trying these interesting cream and golden-colored patterned tights with cognac oxfords.

25: New Year's Eve! I was invited with short notice to a "Masquerade" themed party. So I wore the black dress and silver shoes, vintage rhinestone jewelry, and a mirror mask I had used for another costume.
