#WIW for Christmas 2016

HUBBY AND I WERE SO HAPPY TO PUT OUR DOG IN THE CAR, AND HEAD OUT TO OUR QUIET HOME IN THE WOODS. MY TINY SLICE OF MANHATTAN WAS SO CONGESTED WITH HOLIDAY  SHOPPERS AND “WHITE HOUSE NORTH” SECURITY.

THERE WERE EVEN LOW LYING PLANES AS A SECURITY EVACUATION TEST FOR THE PRESIDENT ELECT….. I WISH THEY HAD GIVEN US, LITERALLY, A HEADS UP ON THAT. MANY FOLKS WERE WORRIED THESE SMALL AIRCRAFTS WERE SOMETHING ELSE. GOSH, WHAT IS NEXT?

ALAS WE ARE HERE, AND THE BEACH IS COLD AND EMPTY, BUT STILL SO LOVELY TO SEE AND WALK ON, IF BUNDLED UP!

I DRESSED UP,  FEELING FESTIVE ANWAY. ‘TIS THE SEASON. I HAVE A DELICATE FLORAL EMBROIDERED SWEATER THAT REMINDS ME OF A MASH UP OF A GUCCI FLORAL, SANS SNAKES, AND POINSETTIAS. A SAPPHIRE BLUE TULLE  SKIRT WAS MY EASY PICK -SWISHY AND FULL, AND SO COMFORTABLE. BELOW IS MY WORST PHOTE EVER, LIKE DORIS DAY ATE A FROZEN SQUID OR SOMETHING. BUT IT IS GOOD TO LAUGH, EVEN  ESPECIALLY, AT ONESELF.

YOU MIGHT NOTICE MY SHOES. EHEM, YOU CAN NOT MISS THEM. IT IS ALMOST LIKE MISTLETOE ON MY FEET. ONLY ONCE A YEAR WILL I CALL THESE  FORTH FROM MY CLOSET.  THANKFULLY I GOT THEM AT LVIS FOR $8.00 AND THEY ARE RACHEL ROY. JUST SLIPPING THESE ON WAS FUN. 

AND NOW MY SECOND WORST PHOTO, NOT MY HUBBY’S FAULT.  I FINISHED MY HOLIDAY SHOPPING ON TIME. I STARTED 6 MONTHS AGO, SO THAT WAS EASY!I  I SENT MY HUSBAND’S WORK ASSOCIATES ALL CUPCAKES FROM WICKED GOOD CUPCAKES, A GREAT COMPANY I LEARNED OF, WHILE WATCHING SHARK TANK ON TELEVISION. ( LOVE THAT SHOW!)

 EVERYBODY RAVED ABOUT THEM, AND RED VELVET WAS THEIR FAVORITE FLAVOR. I EVEN SENT SOME TO MY SON WHILE HE WAS FINISHING UP TERM PAPERS AT GRAD SCHOOL. ( A MAN NEEDS FUEL TO STUDY AND WRITE!) THAT IS MY BEST HOLIDAY TIP SO FAR, AND IT COMES LATE, BUT NOT TOO LATE FOR NEW YEAR’S OR BIRTHDAYS, OR SULLEN WINTER DAYS.

HAS ANYONE TRIED THEM?

I EVEN DID A LITTLE SHOPPING FOR ME. YES, I DID. YOU WILL SEE WHAT I GOT LATER.

SHINE ON, RIGHT?

MY PENDANT CROSS, AND SUEDE BELT WERE ALSO THRIFTED AT LVIS. THE PINK SUEDE IS BEAUTIFULLY EMBELLISHED WITH BEADS, CRYSTALS, AND TINY SEA SHELLS. MY CRYSTAL BAG IS SEVERAL YEARS OLD. I LOVE THE TINY BLACK BEADS WITH THE LARGE CRYSTALS, AND IT IS LIGHT AND EASY TO CARRY. BEST OF ALL,  IT WILL FIT MY  SAMSUNG NOTE 5 PHONE! WHICH IS HOW THESE SHOTS WERE TAKEN.

A FUN ASSEMBLAGE ABOVE:  A CANDLE WITH THE NICEST BERRY SCENT, A CLOSE UP OF MY CHRISTMAS SHOES, AN VINTAGE BRACELET BELOW, AND ON TOP A BRACELET , AND EARRINGS, YOU HAVE SEED OFTEN FROM KCSIGNATURES .

YES, MY HILARIOUS SHOES ARE EVERYWHERE! BUT I AM NOT SAYING WHAT IS IN THOSE BOXES! YET.


I USED THIS OUTFIT AS INSPIRATION FOR A HOLIDAY OUTFIT FOR POLYVORE; CLICK HERE TO SEE IT.  MOST OF WHAT I AM WEARING IS LONGER AVAILBLE, BUT I ADDED SOME SIMILAR ITEMS, AND YOU MUST CHECK THE GREEN SHOES! I LOVE THEM, BUT THEY ARE EVEN A BIT OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE, AND THAT IS SAYING SOMETHING!  THE PHOTO BELOW GIVES YOU THE SOURCES, BUT YOU NEED TO GO TO POLYVORE TO ACTIVATE THE LINKS. 

I HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING THE HOLIDAYS- IF YOU CELEBRATE THEM! I WISH YOU PEACE AND GOOD CHEER!
