I know this is a little late, but let's just pretend I posted this a few days ago. Anyway, this outfit was from Christmas Eve, when my parents, B, and I cooked a relatively elaborate meal (by our standards at least). Fun family bonding without the slightest hint of irony - 'tis the season. Hope you all enjoyed your vacation! Here's to a successful and stylish new year!

  28. It'a amazing how subtle colours sometimes garner more attention than bolder ones. The combination of cream with gold is genius and a fierce pair of heels just elevates this outfit to a heavenly status.
