My Picks for New Years Eve Fashion

With Christmas winding down and New Years Eve parties looming, I thought it might be fun to put together a few different looks from around the internet (you know, as I digest these dozen Christmas cookies). 

(Dress from Modcloth, shoes from Modcloth, clutch from Dillards, necklace from Forever 21.)

(Dress from ASOS, shoes from Modcloth, clutch from Urban Outfitters, belt from Southmoonunder, necklace from Forever 21)

(Dress from ASOS, shoes from eBay, clutch from Modcloth, belt from Nordstrom, necklace from Modcloth.)

I hope everyone has a fun and SAFE New Years Eve. Remember: if you've been drinking on New Years, AAA will tow you for FREE in most states. 


Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all!

From our house to yours, here's our most awkward family Christmas Card photo.

Christmas of DIY: Kantha Inspired Stocking


This is the first year I've hung a stocking. As an adult, anyway. 
I sort of knew from the very beginning that I wanted a stocking that incorporated some of the fabrics that I used in my belly dancer's costume from earlier this year. Which, by the way, did I ever post those pictures up here? I don't think I did. 


Yeah, that happened. I still can't believe I wore that the whole Renaissance fair. But I digress.
I tried to model this after a Kantha quilt. I really really love them to pieces. I want one. (So bad. Like so so bad.)

Here are the rest of the house stockings. 
Yes, the cat's have a stocking.
If you had to put up with his kind of nonsense during the holiday season wouldn't you feel entitled to a stocking?

Of course you would.
Get festive.
