Christmas Eve 2014

Dress - eBay / Shoes - Charlotte Russe

I clearly love to dress festively for Christmas. I saw this really pretty dark red, lace dress in Wet Seal during the fall. I knew I wanted dark red and lace for this year's Christmas Eve dress. There was some cut out detail near the waist so I was trying to figure out how to swing that one at work. I was about to order it...but I took a look on eBay, and for a third of the price, something just as pretty and with more obvious lace detail (and more work appropriate!) And since it's clearly not a blue dress, I was going for a subtle snow queen look with the jewelery. Ok, ok, it's barely noticable, and I couldn't figure how to put my particular snowflake clips in my hair without a braid, but snowflake earrings and an Elsa snowflake necklace is good enough for me.

Speaking of my queen, the Snow was my Christmas card for this year. My first photo card. Concept, photography, editing, design and layout all done by yours truly. 
Not a bad 2014 collection ;) 

Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas, everyone

fabulous faux fur

Coat - Forever 21 / Dress - H&M / Shoes - eBay / Necklace - Forever 21 / Hat - eBay thrifted

First off, Happy Birthday to my girl, Taylor Swift!
Well I just loved, loved, LOVED this look! It was a little alternative to an outfit I put together in my head a long time ago, but I think I liked this way better with THE COAT! I really wanted a new coat since my current one is a few years old. I would retire the current one to work, and I wanted something kinda fun for the weekend. I was leaning towards faux fur because it is just so fabulous. Mom and I went to look for something in F21 on black Friday. I found a gorgeous white one, but it just looked weird on me. I think the collarless look on fur isn't a good one, but that's just my opinion. Then, we spotted this mauve one. I liked the way this one looked on me more, but I wasn't 100% on it. But I bought it anyway. I asked a couple of friends what they thought, because I don't need to absolutely love something for me to wear it. My friends loved it, so I kept it, and now I'm in love with it.

(P.S. please ignore that huge run in my tights)

Hope you guys aren't going to get sick of photos by my tree. Since I have this indoor shooting option with the new equipment, this is going to be a regular thing now. But how I miss lovely tree bokeh backgrounds...

Speaking of trees, here is my mom's

And my new buddy

I also re-did my room. And got a fisheye lens :3

that hat °o°

Top - Converse One Star / Leggings - Forever 21 / Hat - DIY / Shoes (not pictured) - Charlotte Russe

I came across an awesome shop online that makes Disney related clothes and jewelry called Whosits & Whatsits. There are a couple of Baymax hats that are TOO CUTE!... have I mentioned how much I LOVED the movie Big Hero 6? Anyway, they have a cool studded Mickey Mouse beanie, which reminded me that I have had a Mickey Mouse DIY link sitting somewhere on my computer for months now. So I finally got myself the one supply I needed and a new hat was born. I got SO many compliments on this hat today :) A few on the outfit too. A black leather jacket over this looked good.

Something not so good was when I noticed one foot beginning to feel like it was wet. It was raining and I thought maybe I splashed myself with a little bit of water, but no, there is a huge crack in one sole of the shoe. I'm going to spray it with black Flex Seal and see how that goes, HA!

Here is my tree
