So here is why I shouldn't be allowed to leave my Christmas shopping until the last minute: sales. So many of them. For example? The 30% off sale items at J.Crew. The 80% off at BCBG. Hence my new outfit. To be fair, how was I to resist this gorgeous dress which can switch with ease from a job interview to a family dinner to a holiday party? And this motorcycle-style coat, with its soft, soft wool, strong shoulders, and pretty ruffle, was calling my name from the sale rack. Not a joke. And so perfect for the Christmas Eve gathering which I'll be attending. Rest assured, I managed to finish my Christmas shopping as well.
Wishing you all the happiest of holidays. I'll be taking next week off while I'm on vacation but can't wait to be back in the new year!
