Cabin Day One

Monday, November 15th, 2010

I had a great time up at my family’s cabin this past weekend.  It was the first time the whole family could be together there.  My new 40s autumn leaves hat is my favorite fall accessory of the moment.   It’s so festive!

Happy Holidays

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

I shelled out $210 for an optometry visit (ouch… I wish I had insurance).  My optometrist basically told me I had to stop wearing contacts, and if I do wear them, I have to wear the super-duper expensive ones.  I was a bit sad about it, but I think I’m getting used to wearing glasses.  I was afraid I’d look frumpy with my glasses on, but after a gander at these pics, I don’t think that’s possible. ; )  I took Ben out to a nice romantic dinner before heading over to a holiday party put on by Ashley of Fancy Fine.

I was a bit bummed that I didn’t get a good shot of the entire look, but hopefully you can get an idea of how awesome this dress is. It’s Christmas-y in the sense that it’s almost a big bow in the front.

hat and purse: thrifted

Nicole and I did a little gift exchange.

queen of hearts

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Sometimes the best outfits happen when you’re short on time and buzzed from drinking a 22 oz bottle of Hop Stoopid by yourself.  I was going out to Alex Koll‘s CD Release Party at the Punch Line and I only had 15 minutes to get ready.  I put this ensemble together and didn’t have time to edit myself.  I felt like the queen of hearts.
