Another cold Saturday night, going out to a local upscale restaurant…no snow or slush tonight so felt like dressing up a bit, wearing a feminine shoe for a change. Actually, the whole outfit was planned around the La Perla stockings that Peter bought for me for Christmas….let me start by saying that they were not my favorite – not the most comfortable (waistband kept dropping) and I think they aren’t very flattering because they cut the leg off at the ankle – but they were fun as you might imagine from the package cover….yeah, all I needed was some music from Chicago and there would be trouble!  I would not wear this combination again – much prefer the skirt with patterned tights and suede boots or booties……..sometimes a new look works, sometimes not!     The Kate Spade cashmere sweater is actually a favorite of mine, and I know Ginger would have loved it.  When I wear it with a simple black pencil skirt, add a skinny black patent belt, it has the look of a Chanel dress!

So, what did Peter wear this night? He chose black cashmere blazer, black jeans (Levis) and a gray linen sweater (Vince)….when you have good basics that fit well, it’s easy. He initially had a gray tee shirt under the sweater – I suggested he try a color, and voila! The red tee was a perfect touch. And off to dinner we went………
