My casual posh Christmas dinner outfit
I hope you enjoyed the longer weekend and holidays. I also hope you don’t have to run to the mall and exchange gifts. It’s crowdy and stressful out there.
In today’s post, I want to show you my Christmas dinner outfit. I went low key when going out for a holiday dinner with colleagues. We went after work so the look had to fit both. Thus, I kept the look low key business casual with some “glam.”
In the states and Great Britain, the holidays are often associated with plaid. Despite I have a chic fit-and-flare Voodoo Vixen holiday plaid dress, I went for a wool plaid skirt. Wool is just a better insulator than a mixed cotton spandex fabric. At the end of last week, temperatures finally dropped below zero Fahrenheit (-18oC).
I went for a Russian scarf instead of holiday jewelry. Full disclosure. I don’t have any anymore. When I was a visiting graduate student at SUNY Albany back in the 80s, I bought some holiday jewelry in a thrift store in downtown Albany. I used to wear them as statement pieces during the holiday season back in Germany. Back in the 80s, nobody wore Christmas jewelry. When I packed my belonging for immigration more than 16 years ago, I gave my holiday jewelry collection away to a colleague. She had always adored them. Why I gave them away? Well, I knew that in the states, they wouldn’t be a statement. For the record, today, this type of jewelry lost its statement status in Germany. 😉
Now let’s switch to the Top of the World Style Linkup party.

Top of the World OOTDs
The Top of the World Style Winner is picked by a random generator from the party two weeks ago, because each party runs a week minus 5 minutes. At the time of scheduling a new party, the old party is still in full swing and guests still can link up. To give all guests the same chance to be drawn at random, the party has to have closed before drawing the winner. This means the Top of the World Style Winner visited the linkup two weeks ago.
Top of the World Style Winner
The winner of this week’s feature is Nina the lifestyle blogger at Sahring a Journey. She linked up her winning post at the 141st Top of the World Style party. Isn’t her embroidered jeans a great statement piece? <3

Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav
Readers, you clicked Triina’s thumbnail the most. She is the style blogger at Elegance Revisited and became Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav. Her review of the year in outfits was a real magnet. Unfortunately, I don’t know which one of her looks was your favorite. Thus, I just picked one of them. There were all stunning anyway.

Top of the World OOTD My Fav
Duc aka Salazar’s all neutral with a pop of red Casual Friday look was my favorite. I have a knack for desaturated outfits with just a shade of red. Well, I consider red as a neutral. I think I wrote that already a couple of times. Salazar is the personal style blogger at 14 Shades of Grey.
