An Après-Christmas Party

My firm has two offices, so every year we alternate cities for our big interoffice après-Christmas party. Since last year's party was held in Vancouver, this year's was in Victoria. Admittedly, it's a little strange to be celebrating the holidays in February but who can say "no" to a weekend getaway and the chance to mix and mingle with colleagues we don't see very often?

For the party, I decided to wear my Club Monaco "Angela" skirt (I love skirts with pockets!) paired with black & gold accessories. I first discovered Erica Anenberg's beautiful braille jewelry from Aney's blog and eagerly snatched up this gorgeous "Blind Faith" Cuff during a recent Hautelook sale.

Blouse: Zara / Skirt: Club Monaco (here) / Tights: H&M / Shoes: Aldo / Clutch: Joe Fresh Style
Necklace: House of Harlow 1960 (here) / Cuff: Erica Anenberg / Nails: OPI My Private Jet

    1. Totally agree! It can be so difficult co-ordinating around peoples' schedules, plus this gives us something to look forward to after the holiday season is over and done with.

    1. We get the trip there/back + 1 nights stay but many of my co-workers decided to stay an extra night since we could take advantage of our corporate hotel rate. It's a pretty sweet deal :)

  22. I have that skirt in the orange colour and I absolutely love it. The pink version looks beautiful on you - I love the way the gold shimmer stands out in the sun. It does seem a little odd to celebrate the holidays in February, but there's never a bad time for a party :)

  30. Alison, you look gorgeous! I love the blind faith cuff :) This holiday look is so wearable - I have become obsessed with blacks and all things gold haha.

    Hope you like the cuff - I still find it a tad bit big and unfitting for my wrist, but I still love it because of how unique it is :)

  32. Skirts (and dresses!) with pockets are a must for me! If I am wearing an item without, I then spend the entire day frantically running my hands over and grabbing at my sides, looking for them. Pockets are just the best thing *ever*. You look gorgeous!

  33. You look great! You should do more style posts :) I love the shimmery skirt w/ the simple black.
