Black Watch, Stripes, Sequins and Lace

The holiday party season is upon us.  And, while I don’t usually go for lace —  I’m more of a leopard, stripes and plaid kind of gal –  I recently tried on these lace pants and they are so comfortable (maybe even more than the pajama party pants I featured last week in Pajama Party) that well, I may be a convert … to lace !  I love the feminine touch they give to my Black Watch plaid blazer and striped St. James top.  Now, I’m ready, in comfortable style, for any number of holiday events.


Do you know where the name Black Watch plaid comes from?  It is named for the Black Watch, a regiment formed in 1725 to guard the Scottish Highlands (in kilts).  Now you’ll be ready with an outfit – and some interesting trivia to discuss about it.

J. Crew shoes (older style, but these satin slingbacks in black and navy or these dark navy velvet shoes would look great and they are on sale!)

Happy Shopping!
