Festive Plaid: Red+Blue Plaid and Black Sparkles.

Welcome to the third day of Plaid Week. Today is all about Plaid and Sparkle and I am joined by the Lovely Linda who blogs at A Labour of Life. Linda and I always admire each-other's Outfits. I especially admire her Fun Sense of Style and her uncanny ability to Mix Prints with Plaid, so I figured this Collaboration was perfect for this week, during the Holidays.
Linda and I have different Styles, however we both styled our Plaid pieces with Black. And we both have Red Plaid on, Fun Bracelets and we also accessorized with a Cocktail Ring. Of course, this was all unplanned but I love when happy coincidences happen with my favorite bloggers, don't you?

I finally styled my New, Black Sequined Pants from Stradivarius. Wearing them to a Fun Holiday Party is a great idea since December is the perfect month for them. I (right away) thought about pairing them with a Plaid Shirt. I am wearing my New Blue+Red Plaid Shirt from Terranova. I was in Plaid heaven that day at Terranova, because I purchased my Plaid Scarf and Buffalo Shirt from The Sleeveless LBD: 6 ways Post that same day (about two weeks ago). To amp up the Glam factor, I am wearing a Jewel-toned, Heart-Stone, Statement Necklace, a couple of Pearl+Crystal Stone Bracelets, Red Lipstick, my Magazine Cover Clutch and some Bronze Platform Pumps. I will be honest though - these Shoes though Fun and Pretty are pretty uncomfortable. That's saying a lot since they are from Nine West and I own over 30 pairs of shoes just from Nine West, I know for a fact that almost always their shoes are comfy (heels or not). Lucky for me, I just styled this Outfit for the blog this time though I do plan to wear this exact Outfit this Saturday night for my Husband's Work's Holiday Party, except I will swap out the shoes and wear my Black Patent Leather Nine West Pumps, instead. I am one to always show up in a Dress for a Fancy Holiday Soiree. This time I chose Sassy Sequined Pants. Don't mess with me lol! Do you like how I styled my Black Sequined Pants? What do you plan on wearing to your Work or your Partner's Work Holiday Party this year?

I adore Linda's Black+Red Plaid Mini Skirt first of all and pairing it with Leather Skinnies adds edge to this Holiday Outfit. Her Fabulous Sparkly Sweater Vest matches her Sparkly Jewelry beautifully, but for more detail on this Fabulous Outfit head over Linda's Blog. Check out other Fun Outfits while you are there.

  15. Its funny joining the blogging community and realizing that you gravitate towards friends that have similar tastes and styles...until you constantly show up to places together and you are wearing the same outfit but then at least you know you look good, right??? I love that you and Linda were "twinses" because you were both wearing the perfect holiday combo!
