Seasonal Sparkles

November 17, 2011

While we’re on the subject of holiday dresses, allow me to introduce one of my new favorite sparkly numbers from Juicy Couture. Along with being in one of those murkier colors that you all know I love, the gauzy layer on top is actually removable which means I can wear this as a full-blown sequined dress if I want (and who wouldn’t want to?).

Even though this dress is a bit too fancy shmancy for my family’s Thanksgiving dinner, I can definitely imagine putting this on for one of my favorite Christmas traditions, The Nutcracker.

Do you have a favorite holiday tradition? See more of mine over at Juicy Couture!

Tucked Away

When my brothers and I were little, one of our favorite things to do was build forts. We’d rummage through our linen closet, grabbing every sheet, blanket and quilt we could find, and with a few chairs, tables, ropes, and bed posts we’d create a magical world tucked away behind endless pieces of fabric.

I haven’t made a fort in years, but after stumbling across this blog, I have the biggest urge to create one in my apartment. I love that with just a few blankets, some pillows and a good set of string lights, a boring corner can suddenly become the most wonderful and cozy place to waste away the hours of a day. With it being so cold and dreary outside, nothing would give me more pleasure than to turn a little area of my apartment into a place where I can tuck myself away to write, read, and do whatever else my heart desires behind the safety of some perfectly draped bed sheets. Though I’m a little nervous that with one pounce Finn would pull down and destroy whatever fabric palace I’ve made up, but I suppose half the fun of building a fort is figuring out how to keep it from falling down…
