WIW: Shirts for cold weather and festive outfits, Part 2

Here are some more outfits worn this week with shirts. I thought these were more festive than the other group, at least I hope so.
1-4: worn to the symphony's Messiah program. An old red wool Tahari suit that I tried to dress up with a ribbon belt. Does this work? 3-4 are details. There is my old black silk workhorse shirt under the jacket. Micro fishnets and Aerosole heeled booties (I thought they looked like Prada knockoffs) and RayBan sunglasses finish off the outfit. Too much?
5-6: silver metallic Forever XXI sweater over a silky cream shirt with silver polka-dots ( with a silk undershirt for more warmth). Grey coated Paige jeans and silver sneakers. Later I changed to silver pointy-toe loafers. 6 is a close up of sparkly snowflake earrings. Does this outfit work?
7-8: bronze- gold metallic jeans with that black silk shirt with black silk underwear tank under it for more warmth. Bobeau topper and SE Petty booties. This outfit was from the ROG ( Random Outfit Generator), including the clutch. Am I too old for these gold or the coated jeans? They get looks.

    You in that red suit with the bow are a knockout.
    Of course you get looks, its because you look amazing!

  • bonnie replied 2 years ago

    Love the red suit - it really fits you perfectly. The silver sweater and gold pants are a great way to add a festive touch to an outfit.

  • Maneera replied 2 years ago

    You look gorgeous in the red suit, Joy. I love the festive details here!

    Both outfit 2&3 work. The snowflake earrings are super gorgeous!

  • Elizabeth P replied 2 years ago

    You go, girl!!!! Those gold pants are amazing!
    You look incredible in that red suit as well.
    A great set of outfits, Joy.

  • merwoman replied 2 years ago

    Ditto what l'abeille said...you look incredible Joy! Rock on beautiful lady!,

  • shevia replied 2 years ago

    Great red suit look and you also look amazing in the silver palette in #5.

  • anne replied 2 years ago

    WOW!! What a great collection of looks. That red suit with the ribbon is a knockout!!

    I don't think you're too old for the coated jeans - that's a wonderful look too.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    L'Abeille, Merwoman, and Elizabeth, thank you for the big boost of confidence.
    Bonnie and Maneera, thank you. I was hoping to look as festive as I felt in these outfits.
    Shevia, I wish you lived near to teach me how to look cool like you do.
    Anne, thank you for the sweet comments. I had hoped the ribbon would help a rather plain red suit, and the coated jeans are great for our winters, keeping out the cold wind better than regular denim.

  • Debbie replied 2 years ago

    Joy you look amazing! Those earrings are beautiful and I love the coated jeans.

  • rachylou replied 2 years ago

    Party on! I love love the red suit and black ribbon belt. That's awesome.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you, Debbie. These earrings make me feel festive no matter what else I am wearing.
    Rachylou, I'm happy that the black ribbon is looking fine to you.

  • Mirjana replied 2 years ago

    WOW!! You look gorgeous in the red suit, my favorite...., but I like 7-8bronze- gold metallic jeans with that black silk shirt....., to my mind you are not  too old for the coated jeans, that's look great too.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you, Mirjana ( what a pretty name!). You reminded me that I forgot to give credit to YLF's Random Outfit Generator in Finds for creating the outfit in 7/8. I edited that into the post.

  • Angie replied 2 years ago

    How Killer Fab do you look in #1. WOW. That bow is sensationally festive! And you amped up the suit with the booties, big time. WELL DONE. 

    And #8 is just as Killer. Your festive outfits are simple divine, Joy. What a treat, and you're a sport. 

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you, Angie. A Killer for the red suit outfit. Wow! I have really enjoyed your challenge to add the festive factor even to everyday and as a new way to play in the closet. I have to give ROG credit for #8 :)

  • L'Abeille replied 2 years ago

    Joy, how do you keep track of ROG outfits you want to try? Is there a simple way to save them? I know there's a way to post them to the forum, but that's rather spammy if I haven't even committed to wearing the outfit yet.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    I end up writing down the ones I want to try as I know no way of saving them. Maybe Greg has a solution. I had intended to post this one to the Forum, but it was gone the next morning. I also need to create finds for more of my winter stuff.

  • Donna replied 2 years ago

    You've knocked it out of the ball park Joy! Beautiful!
    L'Abeille - can you take a screen shot of the ROG page. I've done that and it saves it to my desktop.

  • catgirl replied 2 years ago

    How could you be too old for metallic jeans?  Perish the thought!  You look amazing in that red suit.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Donna, thank you for the sweet comment and ROG information.

    Una, you are a sweetheart.  I'm glad that you approve of metallic jeans and the red suit.

  • donnat replied 2 years ago

    That red suit is killer. I love the bow detail. The metallic jeans are really festive. They look great on you.

    J'aime les photo 4 et 5 J'aime la tenue avec ce magnifique chemisier

  • shedev replied 2 years ago

    I love both outfits.

  • UtahDesert replied 2 years ago

    I love all three outfits. In fact I'd like to wear all three outfits--I really like your style. (I might have gone for a different shape on the sweater in the last outfit, but that's because I'm not entirely convinced on cocoon sweaters yet--I always prefer a longer line and a flow.)

    Off topic: Your hair is beautiful. If I could wave a wand and get my hair to look like this and get out of this awkward in-between stage I'd do it.

  • retailgirl replied 2 years ago

    All of these outfits look festive and great on you! Love the red suit and the snowflake earrings. I don't know how old you are, Joy, but you are not too old for those gold pants! You always look fashionable and age appropriate.

  • smittie replied 2 years ago

    The bow on your red suit is such a great touch! What a great idea!
    I think I might do silver or black shoes vs. Pewter in the black pants ensemble.
    But you are looking fabulous in everything.
