Spirits of the Season

One Stop Wines & Liquors was the proud underwriter of the Spirits of the Season event so that 100% of the ticket price went to the American Cancer Society.

For this evening I chose a silhouette of long over lean, meaning the top and the jacket are longer and fuller and the pants are snug fitting with high heeled ankle boots to elongate the legs.

To achieve this look I chose a pair of black leggings worn with black suede and snakeskin short boots with a black animal print lace overlay tunic. For the accessories I added a couple of silver and crystal accent necklaces and small crystal earrings along with a crystal accent dinner ring. 

The black top and leggings are from Chico's. The black topper is by Geiger from Masengill's Specialty Shop.

We enjoy attending these fundraiser events because it gives us a chance to visit with friends we don't see often enough. The American Cancer Society events are a favorite because they give you the chance to do just that without speeches and auctions. 

I always enjoy visiting with my beautiful friend Dottie.

There were many spirits to taste and great foods to enjoy in the elegant Johnson City Country Club ballroom.

The Vince Camuto booties are from Nordstrom. The clutch is old from T.J.Maxx. The ring is old from Stein Mart. The necklaces and earrings are several years old. That's the beauty of buying classic basic elements, you can wear them for many years and in many combinations.

Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Thank you yet again for the idea of this look. I have ordered a similar top for my Christmas look. You are a real inspiration. Margo
