Charm said...

Those elfin shoes are so funny! I would lovelovelove seeing those in person!

btw: I have no idea if those are the miu miu shorts, the tangled limbs in the picture caught my eye (I love photography). But thank you for the insight! And thank you so very much for reading!

Your blog is amazing, by the way. I am truly impressed.

Meg said...

Man, I sure do love Christmas. I'm starting to get excited, despite my exams.

Those Irregular choice shoes are festive to the extreme!

...love Maegan said...

aw, you're kind of helping me get in the Christmas spirit!

Dana said...

Wow! Those are really killer shoes and clutches! I love them!!

Fashion Addict said...

I just love this post! Really gets me excited for the holidays!!!

WendyB said...

The cherry shoes! I heart them.

Emily said...

that all-green dress is perfection!

lisa said...

The Betsey Johnson dress is cute, and I love the quirkiness of the Irregular Choice shoes!

Hmm I might wear red/green together later this month if I'm in the mood for it.

As for fave gifts to give and receive, I like gift cards and cash (as bland as that seems). There's no waste involved in wrapping the present and people can use it to buy something they actually need. Plus, when I get gift cards and cash it gives me an excuse to shop on Boxing Day. ;)

OMG..... I love that Oscar gown. Very pretty!

MISS GLITZY said...

Thanks for the photo and link. I understand know why it was so appropriate and I really got to think green like the Lanvin pumps or the Oscar de La Renta gown. Dream, dream dream...

pretty face said...

I adore your montages. Surely your picasa web albums space must be used up by now though? I have to be extremely frugal with mine!

And yours is anything but frugal, beautiful in excess xx
