Christmas: Part 2

Merry Christmas Eve!!!

Just a casual, thrown-together outfit today because we're busy baking and shoveling and wrapping gifts!!!

This cardigan and headband were actually gifts yesterday from my fiance's sister, Regan...who is absolutely gorgeous, absolutely talented, absolutely brilliant, and has absolutely impeccable taste :) The cardigan is the most gorgeous shade of steel-y grey and has darling little crystal buttons. Perfect with the ditsy floral print on the headband!

Me and the fiance had quite a lovely Christmas and got our first "future home" gifts.
Mmmmm...have to get back to my toffee...Merry Christmas Eve again!!!

Hello, Dah-ling--Cinnamon Bone

I believe I am going to institute a new kind of post for this blog...the "Hello, Dah-ling"...Picture an elegant New York socialite of the 50s spreading wide her perfectly gloved arms and greeting a friend with suave delight :D Which, roughly translated, means that I have something exciting I want to share with y'all. So here's the first one:

I just discovered this lovely video on Youtube, thanks to my fellow blogger and artiste Anna at Classically Romantic. Thought I'd share it with y'all :)

Believe it or not, this very talented young lady sang her song BACKWARDS while this video was that when the film was reversed, the song sounded like it was sung forward! If you can wrap your mind around that poor articulation of mine, I think you'll be duly impressed. This is not the only fascinating facet of Eliza Rickman's singing...her unique artistry and sense of style are also a delight :)

Christmas: Part 1

For those of you who don't know, I come from a broken home...which means my Christmases are also broken into multiple parts! Yesterday I spent the day with my dad and step-mom, eating turkey dinner, opening presents, and making a trip out for some coffee and shopping :)

I got a Forever 21 gift card...should be able to do some fun shopping after break! Also a Caribou Coffee gift card for my caffeinated studying needs *mmmm* And when we went shopping, my step-mom bought me the shirt/dress you see in these pictures (it only cost $10, so cheap)!

Yes, I know. Another plaid item. Another dress. Another cardigan-esque style. I really didn't need anything like this...But the colours are so russety and jewel-y and rich...and it excites me that I can wear it with jeans, tights, over a dress, under a sweater. So don't judge :D

What is the cheapest item on your Christmas list this year?
