Special Occasions

What do you wear to a wedding, cocktail party or gallery opening?

My all time favorite pieces for evening or special occasion, come from a few select lines, all of which are available from ShopMyFairLady.

This fabulous silver and white IC Collection jacket and black Mesmerize ankle pants work together perfectly for almost any special event. The ankle pants I am wearing are from last year, the styles they have now appear to be longer. I am also wearing a black Clara Sunwoo tank under the jacket. All these items are made in the USA and available online at ShopMyFairLady.

IC Collection is famous for their decorative button closures. The fabrics and tailoring details are always elegant and flattering on this almost sixty-year-old body. You can rest assured; I will never show up for a special event in a strappy little cocktail dress. I must dress for my personality as well as the occasion and the weather. I would be too mortified to even walk across the room in a strappy cocktail dress. I much prefer more covered attire for special occasions, well actually any occasion.

My accessories for this evening included a simple matte silver box clutch from T.J.Maxx. 

My jewelry included small rhinestone earrings, a chunky bright silver link bracelet, and fun bling ring from Stein Mart. All jewelry is several years old. 

The fringe trim suede sandals are by BCBGeneration via Saks Off 5th.

Mr. Mickey picked me up right on time for our Friday night date. After snapping a few photos for you, we were off to one of our favorite elegant bar areas located within Wellington's restaurant at the Carnegie Hotel here in Johnson City. We love to sit by the fireplace to relax and chat for awhile. 

We take every opportunity to get dressed up and enjoy an evening together. No special occasion required! When the waiter brought our glasses of champagne, he asked what we were celebrating. We answered, "It's Friday!"

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

Susan, you look fabulous! I LOVE that jacket, it looks so elegant! I live in Grundy, we need to get together someday. I can see a shopping day at TJ MAXX and Stein Mart in our future. Lol!

You always wear a clutch and I was wondering what you carry in it. My 'kitchen sink" doesn't fit in any of you bags. Please could you do a segment of what to carry in one's bag. Casual and special occasion. At nearly 60, I'm trying to reduce the content, but somehow it doesn't work. - Thanks in advance.

I especially like the jacket's slightly Asian look.

Your hands always look so pretty. Do you have a favorite hand lotion that you use?
Love the outfit!

Susan, I love your style. So elegant and sophisticated, as many have commented. You are so inspiring and I love your posts. I've recently read Joel Fuhrman's book, following your recommendation, along with looking into other similar nutritional ideas. I've also read great things about the "paleo" way of eating, but then sometimes I think I need to just count my calories and get some exercise. I need to lose about 80 pounds, and it's daunting at my post menopausal age! What you have hit upon certainly agrees with you! Anyway, all that to say thank you for your inspiring posts!
