|Ivory faille and lace skirt (Eliza J, Nordstrom); Velvet bolero (Alex Evenings, Nordstrom)|
No white Christmas in the Hoosier heartland this year, but Winter white is always right in my book. There's just something about ivory that exudes elegance year round...This ivory faille Eliza J skirt is a Spring/Summer staple, but a velvet jacket; vintage fox fur stole; and opaque tights transform it into a warm Winter's eve ensemble.
|Bag (Burberry Prorsum); Gloves (TJ Maxx); Booties (J.Lo from eBay); Brooch (Premier Designs)|
A Burberry Prorsum bag with an intricately hand-cut lace pattern in the leather; black and cream perforated leather driving gloves; a lace and sequin embellished wool cloche; and the addition of a pearl and crystal brooch to a pair of ivory leather booties complete the dutone look.
|Cloche (Nordstrom Rack); Fox fur stole (vintage 1960s); Earrings (Gordmans)|
Believe it or not, each piece of this outfit was acquired separately (in different seasons and even different years), only put together as a whole last week as I scanned my closet for inspiration sans shopping...and now it's one of my favorite Winter looks. As the new year approaches, spend a little time scouring your own closet - you might just come up with Winter wardrobe you never knew you had!
