All I Want to Wear for Christmas

So lookit. It’s been a long time. I get that you’re probably wondering if I’ve crawled into a cave with Channing Tatum, but the truth is, he’s married. I know you don’t want to hear excuses, but I wrapped up my 7 year corporate career, took some time to smell the hydrangeas, discovered a few new things about myself, and slept. A lot. Or slept-walked through the shoe department at Holt Renfrew, but listen: I’m back.

And I feel amazing.

For those of you that loyally read this mess, it’s true that this time of year makes me giddy as hell. I don’t know if its the pretty little flakes falling outside my window, perhaps its the catchy jingle with Mariah Carey and Jimmy Fallon that’s lighting up my iPod, or the excitement of dressing a little glamorous and wearing sequins and Ruby Woo to all the holiday parties? Whatever it is, can you blame me, It’s such a peaceful, sparkly, cheerful time of year!

As I sit here tapping my sequin slippers to “All I want for Christmas” I want to share with you a little compilation of “All I want to wear for Christmas”. Warning: textured tights, sparkly shoes, sequin trimmed blazer, and gold ahead – might cause rapid heart beat, excessive smiling and holiday fever.

Sometimes you just need to stop and smell the hydrangeas, slip into something sequin and shake your little a*s to some Christmas tunes to get in the spirit.

The Oversized Sock

One of my favorite traditions at Christmas time is the stocking – I like stuffing them, opening them and watching others unveil the endless mini gifts from their oversized sock….

I would be a happy partner, daughter, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, cousin, or friend if I were to receive any of these gifts in my stocking this year. I also love books, stationary, Licorice Allsorts and patterned socks. You listening family?

As the saying goes ‘good things come in small packages’…..

Happy 5 days till Christmas!

Putting On The Glitz

First off, I hope everyone stays bundled up for their winter party hopping over the next few weekends/weeks. Second, I hope you take the time to put on a little glitz! This time of year it’s okay to be overdone anytime you walk into a room, after all, you probably just came from a holiday soiree or are on route to the next one! (or at least that’s what you could say?)

Find your perfect shade of red lipstick and pair it with cat eyes and an Adele style teased chignon, or try sleek waves and a dramatic side part with one side tucked behind your ear. Pull out your chandelier earrings, stick something in your hair, wear anything sequin, go with a cocktail  party dress or whatever you have that’s fur and lace – and just go with it. Have a ball, make yourself feel glitzy and if anyone has something to say about it tell them to ‘fa la la la’ themselves!

Lace…

Red Lips…

Side Part…

Fur….

Sequins…

Happy weekend everyone. Keep it real festive!

Party Hopping

The next 10 days of my life will go something like this….

  1. Work
  2. Meeting
  3. Work Christmas Party
  4. Holiday Party
  5. Christmas Shopping
  6. Work
  7. Skating Party
  8. Open House Holiday Party
  9. Friends holiday Dinner (aka party)
  10. Holiday Party

If you answered ‘party’ yes to more than 5 questions you are a experiencing Party Hopping* and have a serious holiday coma coming your way!

In between all of the festivities I have to dash between stores to pick up last-minute things, finish up my gift wrapping, bake dozens of authentic Austrian confectionery, write cards, drop off client gifts, and find the time for beauty sleep. You can call me Miss Claus Jr.

 

 

This will be me Dec 26th….
