Winter White

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!

  1. Finding new inspiration from already owned pieces is the best feeling! Your dual tone ensemble is gorgeous. The wool cloche with its sequins and lace is simply elegant. Thank you for sharing with Hat Attack!
