From The "I Have Nothing To Wear" Style Files...

My dear friend is celebrating the grand opening of her new chic boutique with an outdoor ribbon cutting and I need something warm and smart to wear, yet a great look underneath for cocktails inside afterward.

Let's start with the fun stuff first, shall we? Shoes!

Ooooh! How about these patent leather Christian Louboutins? Right on trend, this nude color is everywhere in the fashion magazines for making your legs look like they go on for miles! From Annie Bear Vintage.

Wrap dresses are another way to lose 10 pounds in 10 minutes! Done in this fun leopard print, this would be great for going from day to cocktail hour. The longer sleeves keep it from being too bare since it is still quite cold, and the V-neck is flattering for anyone, too. Available from Highwire.

I am always up for winter white! I think it gives you such a lift during the cold season, and I'm crazy over this double breasted one with it's pretty princess seams and tab detail at the waist. It's vintage 1960's Saks Fifth Avenue, and perfect for early Spring days when the weather has not really warmed up yet. Even though this one has some military influence, there is nothing that is too masculine here! From Created and Collected.

Glitz 1 offers this genuine alligator handbag in their large etsy shop, just full of great things! Made by Sterling USA, this is a stunning addition to your accessory wardrobe, and because it's vintage, you won't see your friends toting the same bag! They'll just envy yours!

I am a big fan of hats and love an opportunity to wear one for a special event like this! Made of 100% wool felt, this winter white fedora from a delightful shop called The Marabou's Finery, is embellished with the most divine grosgrain band and bow!

Make Every Day an Event to Attend!

That white coat would be quite chic with the animal-print dress. So 70's in the best of ways, which makes it au courant. I think winter white is universally flattering, even if you need a hint of lip stick or blush so you don't look too washed out. I plan on adding some white pieces to my wardrobe this year.
