Holiday Party: January 20th, 2011

Event: Our apartment complex’s holiday party

Outfit: Blouse: NODRESSCODE by Tony Cohen (Spring/Summer ’08 collection; via Falcon—gift card); Cords: Gap Outlet; Boots: Steve Madden; Necklace & hat: H&M

Our apartment complex awesomely hosted a “holiday party” at a bar across the street from us. Free (yummy!) bar food and booze for several hours, all whilst getting the chance to actually meet people who we usually only know by their dogs. Yeah…having a dog is quite an experience. You find yourself talking to strangers for relatively long periods of time, getting to know their dogs’ names/breeds/genders/ages/quirks…and yet never introducing yourself. It’s bizarre.

I liked having a reason to get out of work-clothes and into something more fun, especially as week finally came to a close. I’ll readily confess that the hat was mostly a “MUST CONCEAL PREVIOUSLY-PONY-TAILED HAIR” addition, but I wound up diggin’ it with this look. In the past I’ve thought a necklace would be far too busy with such a unique blouse, but I surprised myself by liking it.

Here’s to sequins, free shiraz and jalapeno poppers, orange & grey, and fiance’s with fun new lighting kits. 😉 Hip, hip, HOORAY!

  1. That is just too awesome that the complex hosted a party. You might be paying to much rent. Kidding! You are so lucky yo have such a talented photographer. Although when you smile how can he not get a winning photo.

    At first I was confused when I got to the last 2 photos. What a great idea to include past OOTD’s in the post. I normally use a link. Just might have to try it myself.

  2. I love the print on your blouse! So lovely.

  3. sounds fun! i like the hat with it

  4. the black background photos are so neat! and the sequin top and nit hat are great together!

  5. Great photos…sounds like a fun night…That is my favorite top of yours, love all the ways you have styled it!

  6. Wow that’s a gorgeous top!!
