what im wearing to the christmas party, that im on my way to

At this very moment I’m probably on my way to Kh’s company’s Christmas bash. The power of scheduling posts ahead of time, hooray!

I didn’t want to give the secret out before the big event, but here’s what I’m going to be (or currently) wearing this evening. Minus the skull head. I put that in there for uber goth affect.

xmaspartyoutfit

shoes : Mix No. 6 Wedge Pumps (mine are matte black)
dress : Bettie Page The Evening Unfolds Dress
pashmina : black pashmina similiar to this
clutch : cut out clutch
:: outfit on polyvore ::

The only thing not pictured is the under armor of spanx I have on. I figured I’d save you that gory detail.

The one thing I’m most proud of? That clutch. Kh went on a crazy find-everything-we-need-for-the-party shopping spree, and my only instructions were to find me a matte black clutch. She came back with that! Gosh, I love my damn girlfriend.

Maybe if I feel brave I’ll post outfit photos after the event.

guest post at grits and moxie (and im still sick)

Oh haiii! I have been going non-stop today since 8am. You may be thinking that’s not so bad, but I assure you I’m running on no bake cookies, trader joes brand cheetos, cold meds and Christmas cheer (I might be making that last one up). The one good thing about being sick? All food tastes the same so I really don’t feel bad about eating absolute crap. Although I don’t ever feel bad about it to be honest.. As I’m ordering chinese food online..

I just wanted to pop on here real quick and direct everyone to a guest post I did over at Grits and Moxie. It’s brought to you by this adorable quirky lovely lady Jennifer, and her blog is a daily read of mine. I was so excited to be apart of her guest postathon! So check out my guest post, and check out her blog while you’re there.

DIY Silhouette Felt Ornaments! I’m totally that crazy dog lady.

Crazy dog lady story: I bought my dogs SO many presents this year. I sat down earlier in my cold med induced haze to wrap them. My biggest dog tried to sit right next to me and watch me, but I wouldn’t let her. I didn’t want them to see their presents! I made them both lay on the couch and covered their heads with a blanket. Don’t worry, that’s usually how they lay around anyways.

materialistic monday act 2

In this installment of materialistic shit I want, I’m actually going to be getting one of these dresses, if I haven’t ordered it already. Every year around Christmas Kh’s company has a Christmas dinner/party that usually entails getting all spiffed up for. The first year I went happened to be last year and she totally psyched me out over it. This year I know what to expect a bit more, so it’s making finding a dress a bit easier.

I actually don’t like parties, but I do love having an excuse to buy a nice dress. Especially an expensive one (ha haaa).

Pinup Girl Clothing is probably one of my all time favorite sites to buy fancy schmancy dresses at. They have a wide variety of styles, and an even wider variety of dresses that are open in the hip region. Can you guess what my top 3 dresses are?

Going Hunting; An Etsy Wish Come True

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas holiday! I certainly had a calm weekend. It was a very relaxing weekend spent at home. Catching up on some internet happenings, watching lots of cheesey Sci-Fi movies, and generally just enjoying my little time alone.

I was a little sad I didn’t get to make it home for Christmas, but my family doesn’t make a big production about much so I quickly got over it.

Before Kh left, I was surprised with this little left over present from the weekend before. It didn’t arrive in the post in time for me to get it when we had Christmas, but I’m still enjoying it just as much.

You may recognize it from my Etsy Christmas wishlist post. That’s right folks! Kh bought me the scarf I had listed. Talk about taking some hints!

What can I say? I’m such a sucker for a print!

Happy Monday everyone! Can you believe it’s almost the end of 2011? Where does time go?
