Vintage 70's Paganne Floral Pleated Maxi Gown

I have to say, I am glad the holiday's are over! This year has been a rough year and I tried really hard to get into the holiday spirit, but just wasn't feeling it. I was really missing my mother this year. In fact, when I saw this dress, while browsing on Etsy, I saw it and it made me think of her. This is something she totally would have worn. The browns and blues, are colors I remember her vividly wearing along with her long, straight, black hair, parted down the middle, with an occasional barrette on each side. Christmas was her favorite holiday. She would decorate every inch of her house, I was lucky to get a Christmas tree this year. I try every year to recreate her Christmas enthusiasm, but it's hard, really hard. 
Not to be a Debbie Downer, but how was your holiday?

Zara Sequined Sweatshirt, Gucci Loafers & Janessa Leone Sloan

 The weather has been so cold here lately, that I have been living in sweatshirts and sweaters..along with a heavy coat! Even though I love wearing sweatshirts, I often shy away from them because I feel that they look lazy. Because most sweatshirts have that sloppy, bulky fit, it can be easy to get swallowed up in them. So, when I saw Zara's new collection and all the sequins, I of course fell in love! Like this one I'm wearing for example. Yes, it has a bulky fit to it, but I think the velvet and the sequins ass some jazz to it, don't you think? 
Thank you for reading and below are some other options to spice up your sweatshirt collection!

Past Looks & Some Christmas Gift Ideas

Looking through some of my past looks recently, after someone asked me if I had any good Christmas gift ideas. Even though these looks are older, I think they are items, worn here, that I would still love to get as a gift, even today! 

A fun clutch. That is something every girl would love. Clare V. always has some super cute ones, but even places such as Target, also have very cute handbags for a much better price!
This cheetah clutch is hand made by Emily Dafoe

Nerdy tees. I always love fun, nerdy tees. Graphic or rocker tees. 

Something vintage is always the best gift ever! That can be tricky though, vintage sizing can be way different and usually there are no returns accepted. 

If you really know your gal, then shoes are a perfect gift! 
Who doesn't like shoes!?

Thanks for reading and here are some items that I think are cool and they are all items I would love to get as a gift, in case you are still needing some ideas!
