A Bow, a Bow and Some Sequins

Skirt? Debbie Shuchat (similar here and blue here) Sweater? BCBG, worn backwards (similar here) Boots? Aldo Clutch? c/o Austin Yarn Company (here) Slightly ridiculous posing? The Holiday Air

This is the time of year where sequins are just a wardrobe staple. As you probably know, I like my sequins year round, so I tried to up the holiday feeling by wearing a bow as a clutch and a bow in my hair. It wasn't exactly intentional, the double bow. I had little faith that the hair bow would work (kinda inspired off this on pinterest, maybe I shall do a tutorial) but when it did, I gave myself a high five and applied an overly generous amount of hairspray.
I figured I could leave the hair bow in for days; keeping the hair festivity at a maximum and effort at a minimum. But having a plethora of bobby pins on one side of your head is not the best way to fall asleep, so I just have to hope I can redo this hair again soon.

And speaking of festivity, I'm going take some time off from blogging... Nothing too crazy, just until after Christmas. Spend time reflecting on the season and spend time with the family and friends we are blessed to have in our lives.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! Thanks always for reading and I shall see you soon...!

You are so cute. I hope you thoroughly enjoy your holiday. I love your hair bow and I do the same thing when the clouds part and I am actually able to pull off a hair style I've seen recently. I never want to take it out but for some reason after days of not washing my hair and sleeping sitting up, my husband starts to complain a bit. What a whiner. ;-)

Laura said...

I have to say that I love your outfits year round, but your Christmas outfits are always my favorites. Probably because of the sequins reason!

Have a great holiday!

You've certainly confirmed the need for a sequin skirt in my closet. And I adore the hair! I would love to see a hair tutorial on how to do that!

It's been so nice to find your blog! Your styling and photos are stunning! I know you are taking a bit of a blogging break but I hope that when you get back you could perhaps check out my blog too? It might be fun to stay in touch and share fashion tips!

This is done using techniques such as hydrotherapy, remedial exercise, Mississauga style massage, rhythmic
mobilizations, laser therapy and myofascial therapy. There are also
those who deal with athletes who need a private physio
therapist to ascertain their health condition in a
frequent interval. Although a lot of massage clients to
prefer to be quiet during the massage and just enjoy the relaxing massage in silence,
there are also those that like to strike a conversation with the masseuse, which gives you
the opportunity to learn more about your clients and build
a good professional relationship with them.
