Santa Fe Shopping

I did quite of bit of shopping while in Santa Fe. I found out about a boutique that was closing by year end, so decided to check it out since it was in Plaza Mercado off the Plaza.  I wore this skirt to dinner on Christmas night with a royal blue cashmere pullover and black cowboy boots:

The next 2 pictures are a black and silver metallic knit cardigan, accented with silver and gold nailheads and knotted knit cords. The cardigan closed with a fancy gold, silver and rhinestone kilt pin (not photographed). I wore this sweater New Year's Eve with a black mock neck shell from Coldwater Creek, shown in the above photo and under the cardigan in the photos below:



I haven't worn these two yet, but the black skirt will be going to Puerto Rico with me:

This top reminded me a little of the Sewing Workshop's Liberty Shirt:

This last item came from a little shop, Passementerie, located right outside the hotel:

The set can be worn as a bolo (shown) or belt. In addition, the flower and neckpiece can be worn separately. The pieces are made of silk and have lots of little details such as beads and yoyos. I got a second set for my sister in law, who admired it when she visited in October.

Carole asked if I could post some more pictures of Santa Fe, but unfortunately, all the shots of the Christmas lights turned out all blurry, and I often forget about tourist photos. I'll try again next trip! I loved your reminicense about LaFonda--I'm guessing the dances were in the central courtyard, which was changed into an atrium and is now LaPlazuela restaurant.

Happy New Year Nancy. The new additions to your wardrobe are all lovely, I especially like the NYE cardigan, it has so many interesting details.

Wow--those are all wonderful garments. Oh, that plaid skirt! Oh, the black skirt! And the cardi! Plus, the tops in your last post are fabulous. But, I tell you, if I owned that necklace, I could live happily forever!
