Timeless Holiday Dressing

Is there anything that sends you clothes shopping faster than receiving an invitation to a holiday party?  (Well - maybe a high school reunion - but we'll save that for another day).

I had a great time showing holiday looks for Coldwater Creek this morning on "Sonoran Living" on ABC Phoenix. What I love about their clothes is that they are always on-trend, without being "trendy."  In fact, I have dresses that I found there more than 10 years ago - which still look fresh and modern each time I wear them.

While these outfits are super-festive - especially when accessorized with sparkly jewelry and shoes - they are also comprised of timeless pieces you can wear for parties, family gatherings, date night or simply a casual evening with friends.  So, if you're like me and like to calculate your "cost-per-wear" - these will become wardrobe staples you reach for again and again.

Here are the complete looks (photos courtesy of Coldwater Creek):

Table for Two Dress in Dover Red; Moonlight Torsade Necklace and Earrings; Carolyn Pumps by Nina.

And finally, my wardrobe for the segment:  the Faux Wrap Sweaterknit Skirt, with Champagne Toast Earrings.  With the long, cold New York City winter now upon us, this super-warm, cozy skirt has instantly become one of my favorites.
