Some Enchanted Evening.....

The inaugural party....

...in Tina's beautiful new home on December 23rd.

The Enchanted Home


My outfit:
...casual elegance...

GIORGIO  ARMANI  -  if I could!

The forecast is for snow - I've been told....
so, I need my large cashmere scarf,

and to stand around for hours....comfortable (!!!)  Italian shoes.
 To complete my outfit...
a mother of pearl bracelet,

 this clutch bag and...
vintage ear clips, designed by Jil Sander in the 1980's

Knowing that Tina loves "Blue and White"...

...my  'opening present' would be 
this pair of small Japanese dishes from the 1920's

A toast to your home, Tina!


"Jeder sieht ein Stueckchen Welt, gemeinsam sehen wir die ganze"

Each of us sees a part of the world;
together we see all of it.

Let's party!

A special thanks to Marsha from   www.splenderosa.blogspot.com
who initiated and organized this event with great effort!

Looking forward to see you all!


  1. How could anyone EVER go wrong with Armani? Those Italians...only the best! Love this elegant & sleek look, just SO today. The vintage accessories are a work of art themselves, aren't they? Tina will DIE over those little blue & white plates. It's so wonderful knowing you, Karin. Thank you, Tina, for having all of us for Christmas, it's the best party I've ever been to. Merry Christmas !!

  2. I love the outfits you've chosen the Armanoi suit is fabulous. Love casual but elegant dressing. Have fun Karin...lol.

  3. I love seeing how different everyone's outfits and gifts are. So fun, if only it were real! Ah but the clutch is and it is stunning...

  5. Bravo! You nailed it....understated elegance at its best!! You will look fabulous and your gift is PERFECT!! I am brainstorming now as to where I will put those lovely plates. Thnak you for remembering how much I love blue and white!!

  6. The Armani suit and your accessories- perfect on your long, slim torso and oh-so-elegant!
