The Future Has a Checkered Past


Ok, FINALLY feeling some holiday spirit! It could have been that eggnog latte I sipped at the Starbuck's kiosk in Target a couple of days ago, the  piped in holiday tunes at Fringe, or the dry chill that's been lacing the Sacramento night air as of late, but I am feeling a bit Xmas-y at last. This doesn't mean I've got a lick of ornaments dangling at the homestead, but I'm thinking maybe I find me some ugly Christmas sweater to parade around in and go a'caroling.  Whatever the reason this season, somehow a bit of Christmas cheered, and I'm now wanting to deck the halls and fa-la-la all the way to Bethlehem. Or the North Pole. Whichever one is closer. 

Happy Holidays, friends!

Now Wearing:
  • Vintage Fascinator, Fringe
  • Vintage Italian Wool Sequined Cardigan -Fringe
  • Deco Vintage Broach, Fringe
  • Vintage Gold Lame Hand bag, Fringe
  • Gold Belt, Target
  • Dress on Mannequin, French Cuff Consignment
  • Skirt and petticoat, Citizen Rosebud for Fringe
