I am catching up with WIW posts which I neglected during the holidays.
This is the last batch and looking at it I realized that it is a good illustration why I am benched on the "Team Dark or Team Light Neutrals"

OK, I am sure this is not everybody's cup of tea (definitely not my Mom's) and not universally flattering but I hope it is just flattering enough for me! Lilac and cream together make me happy and fluid sweater together with culottes adds a right amount of movement. This cognac boots are long due to a replacement (the quality was not great to start from) but so far I did not find any substitute yet

pic 2 Vesting around

I just cannot get enough of this vest (or gilet). This definitely was one of the best purchases of 2014 - one of those "landscape changers"! If I can find them I would like to add more long gilets (and jackets) to my wardrobe, they are really useful in winter!

I am a bit over tunics over skinnies tucked into tall boots but still like this tunic which my hubby selected for me on one of our vacations. The color makes me happy. It is not wool so not very warm therefore I layered a merino wool t-neck under it for warmth.

pic 4 Formal Gala outfit goes trendy

For a New Year Eve my hubby and I went to a music hall for a dinner and dance with live music (it was a lot of fun). At first I thought to wear exactly the same outfit as for a Christmas Dance Gala. However at the last moment I decided that this venue is less formal and tweaked the outfit a bit. The lace jumpsuit and my dancing shoes were the same but a topper, clutch and earrings were different. It may be a bit OTT with the lace top and snakeskin panel on the leather jacket but I hope that the same color (black) helped to minimize it. Also introducing my latest pet - textured light gold clutch - bought on the same day at Danier of course! Love the soft texture of the leather (almost like suede but without fuzz) and subtle gold sparkle. It is really funny that I am not a bag lady at all and have hard time to fall in love with bags - and the last purchase of 2014 was a bag!

Whew, I am done with WIWs for 2014 - even if a week too late!
Enjoy the rest of your week and hopefully you are spared from the snowstorm we have right now!
