Just because Nikki Karl, 42, was going to the Jingle Belle Pajama Party at Canton's About Faces Day Spa didn't mean the Pasadena resident had to sacrifice her "classic with a contemporary flair" style. The DeMatha Catholic High School Spanish teacher went shopping for a snazzy sleepwear set, and found these red jersey Jones New York p.j.'s at Nordstrom. She added a black stretch sequined belt. "I've had this belt since the 10th grade, and this is the first time I've worn it." She added some glam with black chinchilla slip-on booties from Neiman Marcus, a black rabbit headband that she got years ago at White House/Black Market and crystal ball drop earrings and a crystal-embellished wide bangle, both of which were gifts. "I was going for the Santa look," Karl says. It's enough to make Mrs. Claus green with envy.
