Suz! You and your accomplice look festive and amazing. Those pants are just super on you with all the outfits you have styled. And I love the black patent Eccos! As expected, I'm getting good use out of the bone/black ones.
Tracking on your explanation of short vs petite. Even though my 5'4" is a little more legs and shorter waist, and I prefer a lower rise, petites rarely work for me either. And I like that 1" above ankle crop length too.
It's nice to find that go-to combination and have a plan for a season. Makes things so much easier.
Enjoy, enjoy!

Festive and Fantastic all-around! Thanks for sharing... you've inspired me!

My verdict is “cute”, with a dash of “super”!

Suz, you are super-cute! Happy Holidays!

Suz, this is one of your best looks, you wear those Garcon shirts so well. It is also a treat to see your beautiful cat. I can understand travelling to the right hairdresser, I have had some horror experiences before, it is such a pain to grow out a bad cut.

Red is definitely a good color on you, and your hair looks fantastic.

I see you've failed worse at the Christmas Goth look than Angie did !

I totally blew the goth holiday look, for sure!

I done some researching... They actually DID like colours !!

Fierce, ruthless, murdering, cleave you through sons-a *bleeps*, but they were at least bright !

So much texture--wow. Patent, fleece (?), velvet. And a shiny, chunky necklace. I love how playful, yet put together this look is. Happy Hannukah/holidays!

flannel. I meant flannel.

Cee, you have made my day!! I should print that picture out.

Carol, not flannel -- just cotton poplin. But you are right, it's a texture/ shine rich outfit!
