Hope you all have been having a fabulous weekend!
Today’s look is what I wore to my office holiday party this past Friday.
|Pants: LOFT Petites (Available here)|
I love these brocade pants. They have a subtle shine without being too ostentatious, and I’m having fun imagining ways to dress them down for everyday work wear.
For the party, I decided to dress these fancy pants up with a velvet blazer, heels, and a scarf tied into a big floppy bow tie.

I had an image in my head of this outfit, and this is an instance where I used tailoring to get a look that was close to my vision.
When I first tried these straight leg pants, I looked like all thigh. They were very unflattering, and I was sure that I was going to have to keep searching to get the look I wanted.

Clutch: Jason Wu for Target (Available on ebay here)
|Bracelets, right hand: Torrid and The Limited (Available here and here)|
After having the pants pinned to a slimmer fit, I realized that they would work. Tapering pants legs is a relatively simple and inexpensive alteration, and since these are special pants not easily found everywhere, I found tailoring to be worth the cost. The legs were tapered to create more of a skinny fit, and I got the look for which I was hoping after all!
