For Auld Lang Syne

"For the sake of old times," never more appropriate than when repurposing favorite closet stand-bys to feel festive when you have to work on New Year's Eve.  Or debuting a sparkly top that you'll probably never wear again after the holidays.

To commemorate our office lobby Christmas tree being unceremoniously dismantled over the next week, here's its last hurrah.  We actually didn't hate this tree, so amused were we by its aggressive peacock theme.

Karen is wearing...

J.Crew knit polka-dot sequin top in vintage champagne (tragically, on sale for 30% off here), H&M cream sheer button-down blouse, black skinny jeggings bought from Grey in Silver Lake ("Fave Silver Lake find!"), Barneys patent black leather pumps

Accessories: none today, except the trusty Mulberry Bayswater Satchel in oak, rare red lipstick venture of Lancome's Rouge in Love

Today Paloma totally channels Lorelei Lee in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" with the red and pink color-blocking.  All that's missing are the Harry Winstons.  Here she is, caught mid-wave as co-workers happened to walk by.

Paloma is wearing...

J. Crew "Tippi" sweater (FW12) (another 30% hookup in other delicious colors here), Zara skinny red pants (FW10), Target Merona grey faux suede wedges (SS10) ("Only the finest.")

Accessories: Forever 21 long chain necklace, Citizen men's watch, and her beloved Coach Legacy Candace Carryall in cognac

Happy New Year!  (Really mean it this time.)

Camera: iPhone 4S, Camera+, Clarity Scene
