Magazine Glamour Shot

I was trying on several things the other day putting together a Holiday outfit.  I walked around the house making sure each piece felt really comfortable and was versatile enough to maybe create a couple of different looks.  I was also playing with yards of pearls and different ways to drape a scarf.

The doorbell rang, so I kicked off the shoes, and layed the scarf, pearls and purse down on the ottoman before I answered the door.  When I came back to pick everything up it suddenly struck me that this looked like one of those Magazine Glamour Shots you find in Vogue.

 This is a new pair of shoes I just bought.  Love the strappy look and so, so comfortable.

 The pearls and the vintage silver sequin purse I have had for years.   The fabulous scarf/shawl was a birthday gift this year from my dear friend CK.  I love it and it is soooooooo beautiful.

 Perfect with a little black dress.  Leave the pearls off and I can wear a sequin top and black pants with some flirty rhinestone earrings and have a second outfit.

I think these will be my Holiday accessories this year for sure.

Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live this afternoon at
 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.

I am joining the following parties:

  13. This is such a creative post! And yes, your photos are top-notch. I have the hardest time accessorizing. Part of the problem is that our weather is so damp and rainy and cold at the holidays. Whatever we choose to wear is covered up by layers of outer wear. Oh to live in Phoenix~ at least at Christmas.
