What NYC Recessionista Wears: Holiday Party

Yesterday, I had a small holiday party to attend at work — a lovely lunch with everyone in my department.  We’re in the midst of a deep freeze in NYC, so I had to go with pants and a blouse. And I went with a super bold blouse!

Hard to tell in these photos, but the blouse has faux leather trim details at the shoulders, giving a bit of an edgy spin to an otherwise feminine piece.  Another tip?  I went a size up so it would look more blousy.

This is without a doubt the brightest piece in my closet!
