Happy New Year!

L’Chaim! Shalom!


Classic black for the New Year’s Eve Ball; always in style, never out of date, forever chic. The skirt (Free People) has a sewn-in lace underskirt to look layered. I’m wearing a black shrug over a lace trimmed camisole.

Long black gloves and a black lace choker add a dramatic look.

Version 2 black-gloves-2 I feel elegant in my favourite black stilettos with zippers.

    Wonderful dress and wonderful outfit, with the hairstyle and jewels. I love the delicate fabric of the dress and the design so special for a holiday. I love the delicate lace of the low and the precious finish of the neckline, so sensual and so elegant at the same time. Without the jacket, and with the fantastic gloves of Gilda, all the beauty of the dress and the model acquire all its splendor! The best model for the dress. I love your hairstyle, the hairstyles always fit perfectly, highlighting all the beauty of your face. Thank you for sharing this beauty and elegance, which has no equal. Happy year 2017 dear Carmen!

      Thank you so much for your wonderful comment dear Josep-Maria! When I wear my hair up, I think of my dear mother who wore her hair up many times in the 1960s. I look at these photos, I see my mom. She had a black velvet outfit and always looked so elegant. Long black satin gloves remind me of Audrey Hepburn. 🙂

      Wishing you a very healthy and happy New Year!

      Thank you so much Ute! I’ll be doing a show dance, the one I posted was a rehearsal. I’ll also be teaching some fun couple and group dances: a few Irish and Scottish dances, Gay Gordons and the Canadian Barn Dance, plus some Israeli dances. Then after the break I’d be DJ for social and ballroom dances: Rumba, Cha Cha, Waltz, Jive etc. Wish you could come, I’m sure you’d love it. It’s formal and semi-formal.

      Blessings to you and your loved ones for 2017!

      ❤ carmen
