I'm slowly emerging from last night festivities. Spent the all night talking, laughing, eating and drinking, one of the best christmas eve I had in years. Not even mentioning the wonderful treats I got. But more on that later. I hope everyone celebrating Christmas had a peaceful and cheerful time. A much neeeded human respite and connection with loved ones.
Because I never post evening outfits, I thought I'd share these (low quality 3G, sorry) shots. As often, I settled for a low-key evening look: navy silky dress, a bit of sparkle around the neck, a grey cashmere cardi (because it's winter and I don't have a chauffered heated car driving me around town) and black pumps. Added smoky eyes and a casual bun to the mix to get a cosy-yet-I-made-an-effort-look.

Once again I tapped into my favorite night out inspiration: Lanvin by Alber Elbaz, especially the spring 2003 collection, with its retro loose drapey silhouette adorned with just the right amount of bling and modest skin showing, agrees perfectly with my desire to feel elegant, grown up and comfortable.
