WIW: White on Christmas Eve

Hi Fabbers,

Home from our Christmas Carols Service this evening, and congratulations to my DH for putting together a fantastic program. It was very well attended with other 500 people in the main auditorium, and Master 10 worked with Dad and ran the lights :)

I have been looking forward to wearing this outfit and had considered it for Christmas Day but with all the cooking and eating, I know white is not a good choice for me :)

The top and pants are both new. The top is a crinkly satin with a fabulous over layer at the front which creates some fab draping. The pants are a very simple slim leg pant. Sandals are vintage:) Kept it all pretty simple, with my silver rings, silver drop pearl earrings and left my watch of and wore a 'cuff' which is 4 strands of black satin 'rope' with a silver clasp with small pearls set in it.

Your thoughts on how this works, or if it can be improved would be appreciated.

I hope to pop back in the morning to wish you all a proper Merry Christmas but til then enjoy your Christmas Eve.

xxx Deborah

    Wow. You look like you stepped out of the pages of a magazine Deborah. And not just a fashion spread but some smart feature story about movers and shakers of the world. Absolutely gorgeous.

    And I'm glad you and DH and M10 had a wonderful festive carols night. Well done :)

    Deb, you look sublime. What a lovely top. So classy and elegant with the black trousers. I love the look of our cuff too. Could we have a close up of it sometime?

    Diane, I should be asleep but still winding down. Master 10 finally asleep and gifts are under the tree. Merry Christmas to you and your family too x

    Deborah, I don't know how your outfit could possibly be improved upon :)   You look chic and sleek and stunning :)

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Blessed Christmas to you!   It's -1 Fahrenheit at the moment here in Chicago, with wind chill to make it even colder.

    You look elegant and vibrant.  The drape and sleeve are very flattering on you, too!

  • Mo replied 6 years ago

    Simple and wonderful. Simply wonderful!

    What Fruitful said.

  • Lisa replied 6 years ago

    Gorgeous, it's white which is a lovely change from black, but has all the draping I associate with your style.  A great piece.  Merry Christmas.

    What Una said!

    You look gorgeous, I wouldn't change a thing.

  • Catnip replied 6 years ago

    This outfit is drop dead gorgeous.  I love you in black and white.  Merry Christmas!

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    Gorgeous black and white drama! That top is perfect. Breezy but modest too. I think your vintage heels really make the outfit.
    Merry Christmas!

  • hedgiehog replied 6 years ago

    Deborah, you look equally as fabulous in white as you do in black. Congratulations on the successful service. Merry Christmas to you and your family. :)

  • shiny replied 6 years ago

    Perfection. I love that top. 

  • Sharon replied 6 years ago

    I love the way the simplicity of the colour scheme allows the complexity of the top to shine. This is such an elegant, interesting outfit. You look wonderful.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Deborah, this is one of your very best outfits, EVER. I just know that Angie would say K to the power of K, so I am saying it for her! So elegant, crisp, cool, and smart. I LOVE the top and your bracelet. You look like a vision. Congrats to Mr. D and Master 10 but they should be equally proud of their beautiful and creative wife and mother. 

  • Jenava replied 6 years ago

    Merry Christmas, Deborah!  This outfit is divine, esp. love the sandals and the coordination of the colors in the clutch.

  • Jjsloane replied 6 years ago

    Lovely and elegant - Merry Christmas. You look gorgeous (and I love the clutch!!)

  • Lyn D. replied 6 years ago

    Fantastic Deborah!
    I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas Day!
    Love from your 'friend' Lyn x

  • carolbee replied 6 years ago

    Deborah, you are looking fab to the power of fab. That white top is gorgeous. Fantastic drape and by the look of it non see through - bonus. (Why is it soooooo hard to find a white non see through top??).

    Marry Xmas to you and your family, I will be posting soon with some possible dates for the Melbourne meet up in early March, so l'll see you then ....


  • rae replied 6 years ago

    Oh, I really love this. the restrained styling really lets the beauty of each piece shine. So elegant and chic for a beautiful concert!

  • AJ replied 6 years ago

    Simply gorgeous! I want to steal every piece of that outfit! I agree with Suz, K to the power of K!

  • Debra replied 6 years ago

    This is lovely, very simple and very elegant. Those vintage shoes are great, you look cool and chic :)

  • Hil replied 6 years ago

    Deb, you look absolutely amazing!!!! So slim, chic, just fantastic!!!!

  • VenusCow replied 6 years ago

    Black and White? If it's good enough for Coco Chanel.......... I  love your jewellery, you are the queen of accessories. I always like to cover my upper arms so for me the only thing missing is a little jacket, cardi or throw.
    Happy Holidays:)
