Not A Creature Was Stirring, Except For....

Just to prove that I am not all doom and gloom when it comes to the holidays, here's what I wore today to run a few last minute errands and distribute, and collect, some Christmas hugs.  I love this skirt, purchased last year from a consignment store.  It's wool, handknit, warm, and makes me feel very girly.

Chinese silk jacket - The Sentimentalist
twirly skater skirt - Mesh
fave ankle boots - Neosens, From Mars

I had to compensate for today's flat hair with a cheesy pose

I will be spending the holidays bonding with my new roommate..........
Her name is Fred (those of you who watched the Joss Whedon series, "Angel" will get the reference) and she's smart, clean, curious, and quiet - all the qualities one looks for in a roommate.  More photos to come, being a proud new pet owner and all (and she's a rat, not a mouse).

Merry Christmas!


  1. Kisses to Fred. She is adorable.
    Your flirty little pose is just right for that knitted(!) flared skirt. I must emulate your positive spirit tomorrow.

  2. Welcome Fred! Merry Christmas!

  3. Aww, Fred is cute (and I miss Joss Whedon shows). I love your skirt - so very feminine and swishy. Have a very happy holidays, Shelley! Xoxo
