I imagine this would be the perfect outfit for tucking the kids in bed and heading out for low-key holiday cocktails with my nearest and dearest.
Instead of five golden rings, I'd opt for one major golden collar, courtesy of Giuseppe Zanotti. Wear it with a simple white dress shirt (The Hepburn shirt in Lion in Winter) and golden palazzo pants (remember those?) from Haider Ackermann. Stash the essentials in this Olympia Le-Tan clutch (How the Grinch Stole Christmas is my most favorite) and pair with an elegant Louboutin pump.
If your holiday schedule is anything like mine you'll want to trade the contacts for specs. Might as well give your eyes a rest while complementing this glam-librarian style.
