Why Don't You...?

…Forgo the flannel pajamas and unwrap your gifts in cocktail attire like Madison Marcus’ Tryst Dress or mark’s Ace of Lace Party Dress? Presents are so much more powerful when unwrapped while dressed to the nines!

…Throw a lavish masquerade ball for all of your friends. Don’t forget to put a gilded invitation to yours truly in the mail, kittens; I’ll be the one wearing LaROK’s Left Bank Dress, along with this lovely Angelina Gold mask.

…Allocate an entire afternoon to thrifting – visit Angel Street in New York City; take an hour-long vacation at Seattle’s Value Village; make a stop at Treasure Fair Thrift Shop in Pasadena. It's your time to find something vintage, unique, and mind-blowing!

…Go all-out glamour girl to accomplish even the most menial of tasks – wear big, dark sunglasses to Starbucks; slick on bold red lipstick on your way to Barnes & Noble; don sequins in daylight; cover your fingers in cocktail rings for a simple stop at the grocery store. Errands are far more tolerable when done in high fashion style!

…Spend an entire paycheck on lacy, barely-there La Perla lovelies.

But best of all…

...Have A Very Merry Christmas, kitty cats!



Fashionably yours!

The thrifting and spending everything on La Perla are swell ideas. Although they are on opposite sides of the spectrum. Hahaha!

Have a very merry Christmas Erika.

I loved reading this. I'm very tempted to throw a masquerade ball, and I love the idea of reading books set in magical places.
Hope you had a wonderful day today!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

These are fabulous ideas. :) I want to try them all! (except opening presents in cocktail attire will have to wait until next year...I'm afraid I wore the flannel pajamas already during present opening this morning, LOL).
I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas. :)

Jen said...

Well first off, I hope you had an absolutely fantastic Christmas! And hopefully Santa brought you all you were wanting this year. :)

And I absolutely love this post. A masquerade ball would be so much fun! And I love the idea of writing an anonymous love note and spritzing it with perfume. And getting all dressed up to run errands... Fabulous!!
