I Got Presents!

I just thought I'd take a moment to share with you the lovely gifts I received for the holidays.

My wonderful friend Lani conspired with Matthew Perry Bretherick and got me this lovely pewter clutch with skulls detail from Shi. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

My brother-in-law supplied the lovely purple paisley silk scarf. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

Mr Spashionista did a great job picking wonderful presents for me this year. Here's a stationary exercise peddler I've been wanting (yes, really). Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

I love this purple floral cover for my Note tablet. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

He really outdid himself in the jewelry department. The bracelet features some of Alphonse Mucha's pieces depicted in charms. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

If the necklace looks familiar it's because I already own a companion piece in amethyst. Like it's mate, the amber necklace is from 1902 and was made in Prague from Sworovski crystals. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

Later today we'll treat ourselves to a home-cooked steak dinner.It's supposed to snow tomorrow but we're already planning our after-Christmas shopping strategy.

How about you? Did you get what you wanted for the holidays?

Fashion Friday: Christmas Day In The Morning

Early next week many of us will be celebrating Christmas in one form or another. Some of us will stay home to open presents and spend time with our immediate families. Others will invite extended family members over for the day. Some will go to religious services or less casual family functions. No matter how you celebrate I've got a great outfit for you.

Christmasday

If you're just lazing around the house, maybe cooking Christmas breakfast, you should still look cute. Start with a pair of flannel leggings - these have a Christmas deer pattern. Top them with a "Mistletoe" novelty knit, and pad around in these ivory cable knit slouch booties.

If you're hosting or visiting family try this Blue Canyon Christmas Snow Town Tee over a great pair of jeans with red Bronx brogues. The outfit is comfy enough to play with the kids and cook Christmas dinner without being dowdy.

Finally, if your plans are more upscale Santa has you in mind. How about a McQ Alexander McQueen knit and lace sweater dress and a pair of red Giuseppe Zanotti Crystal-embellished suede ballet flats?

Naturally, before you leave the house you'll need to add a coat to the second and third outfits if weather demands it . In my opinion outfit number one is strictly a stay-at-home ensemble.

However you celebrate, I hope Santa has left you wonderful fashionable goodies underneath your tree!

Spashionistas Wanted

The outfits that I put together for Fashion Friday are based on my BODS profile. Sure, some of the items I use are beyond my price range but I’m certain I can find reasonable equivalents within my budget. I would love the opportunity to put some together for you for the next installment of Fashion Friday. If you’re interested email me with your BODS profile and we’ll make it happen!
