It certainly feels like Winter…

…which is good, because Christmas should feel like Winter… well, the version of Winter you get wherever you are in the world. Personally, I grew up in a very warm area, so we were hanging Christmas lights in 75 degree weather, and then bundling up for the 40 degrees it would be after the sun went down. (Ah, the best of both worlds…)

Now, I’m huddled under several blankets after enjoying a lovely RL Christmas with my immediate family, before I head over to the Christmas of Chaos (no, seriously, it’s insanity, but it’s fantastic). In the meantime, while I’m waiting for my clothes to dry, I thought I’d share some of the pics of some of my favorite recent finds/outfits.

When I put on this dress, I thought of Maria – from the Sound of Music – during the ball, when she is dancing in the courtyard. It is so beautifully made by Betty Doyle of Ingenue (as are all of her clothes) that you can tell what the textures should feel like in your hands. I didn’t take this off for a couple of days, trying to find just the way I wanted it styled (and then for a couple of days after because I loved the way it looks).


The outfit is something I put together today for my time with Domhall this afternoon. We spent some time with Cheeky Pea’s snack table – it worked out perfectly for today.

More pictures (if you’re interested) are on my Flickr. I also re-uploaded the pictures from a previous post that had become corrupted, so they should work now too.

For the Love of… Ice?

Edit: Sorry about the pictures problem. I reuploaded to Flickr, so they should be visible now.

I’m not the biggest fan of ice (that could have something to do with last Winter’s blizzard), but the For the Love of group is putting on Ice Fest right now, that runs until December 26th (so, it runs all day Christmas, but if you don’t get there by then… well, just get there by then).  Most (if not all) of our favorite designers from the For the Love of Science/Fall hunts are included, and have great holiday themed (or Winter colored) items available.

For those of us with more informal holiday gatherings to attend (or just to have something to wear shopping), there are t-shirts that go great with jeans.

For those nights that are nice and warm already (I’ve always wanted to spend Christmas in Australia, just as an aside here), there are these tops from KidAsia. They’re actually undershirts, but I think they’re more than cute enough to wear on their own.

Check out Ice Fest before it melts… wow, sorry about that, it was super cheesy.
