The Fab 40’s in Holiday Looks!

November 30, 2015

The Fab 40’s gals are getting into the holiday spirit with this month’s theme! 

I decided to try to pull together a classy holiday look with just what I already had in my closet.

It’s not too glam, but it might be the perfect look for a work party or dinner at the in-laws.

I wanted to add a bit of edge, so used my moto jacket and studded clutch.  I think the moto totally works, but not sure about the bag.  

Loving the way the half-knot trend shows off my bling-y earrings.

Sheela of Sheela Writes is looking hip, as always.  Doesn’t her hair look amazing?  And of course I want that necklace!

    I'll say it again, Dawn, you managed to turn something so, for lack of a better expression, day into a completely luxe and glam outfit!! The colours, the fabric choices, the little touches of sparkle. Lovely!!

    p/s I'll let you in on a secret. The curls were a last minute bid to put some life back into 2-day old post-gym hair. It looked flat and dreadful. Enter the curling wand. Thank the hair gods.

    That studded clutch is a great finishing touch to a sophisticated, lady-like look with that fun edge. Very timeless meets modern. You carry it off so well. Gorgeous!

    I love your look. The skirt is wonderful, and the combination of colors seduce me.

    Dawn, you're ever so regal and fabulous as usual. The color combination is simple perfect. Ox blood, formally known is burgundy happens to be one of my fave colors. Great job!! xo
