I know it’s not Friday, but it IS the beginning of December.  What’s a better way to usher in December than wearing a something fun and something feathery, from Mr. S’s grandmother of course?!

AND, I’m all dress up for a Blogger Holiday Style Challenge for J. Reneé Shoes!

dress and jacket FROM GRANDMA // necklace and panther minaudiere THRIFTED // Oui ring ETSY // opal ring GIFTED // cuff MAI TAI // Gleem heels c/o J.RENEÉ
We got to select a pair of shoes – I went with gold sequins naturally!  And I knew the perfect party dress to wear with them – yellow and feathers of course!  I’ve been WAITING oh-so-impatiently to wear this dress!  {Do you remember me mentioning it here in August?}
Sequins… check.  Feathers… check.  Bow… check.  Yes, I think I’m ready for a holiday party!  It may be too much of a throw back, but I couldn’t resist putting on the red lips and the hair up.
You can see how the other fabulous participants styled their choices and cast your vote here!  I’d love it if you take a second to vote for me!  You can vote once per day and voting goes on until December 10th.  A randomly selected voters will win a free pair of J. Reneé shoes!

People are just about as happy as they make up their minds to be. – Abraham Lincoln

    Another fabulous outfit from grandma – perhaps the piece de resistance? You’d love this vintage coat I picked up in an antique store recently. Kind of a similar style as to what you’re wearing (slightly less swingy) and black wool with a mink collar! ;-)
