I am going to have to go with feathers this season, as in the BCBGMAXAZRIA luxe feather skirt that I purchased in NYC. Its the perfect party skirt, and you can punch up the look of all black with red or purple tights. And get out the HIGH heels, lady. If you fear sporting the look of Big Bird, go with something a little more subtle, like the gorgeous Club Monaco Ostrich Feather Clutch, or an even more wallet friendly version of that, try Urban Outfitters Silence and Noise Feather Velvet Clutch at a hard to pass up $38.00. I really love shopping at Cusp, the more urban chic spin off of luxury retailer Neiman Marcus. They have a bit more edgy & contemporary look to their merchandise, including a sweet pair of Gorjana "feather" earrings I found there in gold metal. A little hip, without looking like Cher.
Have a festive & fun holiday--and remember, you are fabulous.
