Holiday Office Party

Last Friday was Mr. Fantastic's office holiday party.  He works for a very close knit company and has a fairly conservative boss.  This is what I wore to their dinner party.
Dress: Ellen Tracy via Ideeli
Jacket: Vivienne by Vivienne Tam via Ideeli
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik Cai
Clutch: Vintage (no label)
Earrings: Thrifted
Necklace: Express 
This Ellen Tracy dress was bought from Ideeli (referral link) several months back.  I put it in my closet and didn't really look at it until I was looking for something to wear to this office party.  I have to disclose here that this dress appeared tea length on the model.  As you can see, it is a full maxi dress on me.  I will definitely need some alterations as the chest area gapes a little and the fit overall is for someone with a longer torso (and longer legs!)  The jacket I've worn before and I also bought it from Ideeli.  Luckily, they have a great collection of petite and special sizing and this Vivienne for Vivienne Tam jacket fit perfectly with no alterations required.
I've had this clutch for over 15 years and I didn't buy it new.  I try to take very good care of it because I not only love the shape, but the leather is super soft.  It doesn't have a label and I've never seen another exactly like this one.
I love these shoes.  Surprisingly, they compliment a number of outfits.  You wouldn't guess that a suede pair of tangerine sandals would be so versatile, but I tend to wear them often.  I've worn both the necklace and the earrings multiple times before.

Don't forget to enter my Rebecca Minkoff Giveaway. Happy Friday!
