An outfit with polish is impossible for me to resist. I think it’s always appropriate to be dressed up; in fact, I find days when I wear a slogan t-shirt and ugly jeans to be quite depressing, even if all I’m doing is sitting around at home! Sweatpants are made for working out, and in all other situations I avoid them like the plague. As well, I always wear earrings to the hockey rink- I take them off before I go on the ice, of course, but I feel that if I’m going to be seen by anyone then I should look at least slightly polished! That said, I never have anywhere to wear an outfit like this one. Here’s hoping that someday that will change!
Lanvin black velvet dress / Nine West peep toe shoes / Nina chain strap purse / Giovane white sapphire earrings / Pull Bear fur scarve / Lancôme black lips makeup / Burberry gold nail polish
This outfit is built on an irresistible foundation of vintage glamour. The black Lanvin dress has a faintly ’40s silhouette, which is accentuated by the fur shawl and vintage sapphire jewellery. Red lipstick and shimmering champagne-hued nail polish add to the appropriately fancy feel of this holiday look, and a deep blue clutch adds drama and draws attention to the sapphires in the jewellery. Finally, gold peep-toe heels are classic and stylish; and will keep the wearer semi-warm even when tiptoeing through frost and snow!
