Last night, I attended two very different holiday parties: one conservative, one not so much. To reconcile the two different dress codes, I had to sass up my somewhat traditional dress.
Karen Millen dress, vintage necklace, Hermes bangle, Gap leather jacket, Pour la Victoire shoes, DKNY stockings, Chanel purse
In other news, at the first party, I met a lovely lady who told me that butterflies are apparently popular in holiday decorating schemes this year. She decorates the German embassy for the holidays every year and was at a loss for what to do this year, so she went with a cream and gold color palette, using white orchids and gold leaf. She said it still "needed something" and was worried butterflies might look cheesy, but they actually ended up looking quite elegant. At the second party, I learned that more than one male feels strongly that they would leave their significant other for Burt Reynolds, if the opportunity became available.
