What I Really Want To Wear To Holiday Parties

I have always been attracted to weird pieces of clothing. In seventh grade, year 1999, I purchased a bright orange, polyester, long sleeved shirt. It read “MILLENNIUM” in 3D, pop-out letters. I wore it for years.

If my sweet husband were blind, and my bank account had about 10 extra zero’s on the end of it, this would be my Christmas party attire:



Would this number be appropriate for my church Christmas party? It’s not too much, is it? Good.

I just want to wear a coat. A very large, oversized, shiny coat.



Velveetttt (*hearts-as-eyes-emoji*). Can you tell I’m obsessed with this designer? Top + bottom are totally Christmas-party-ready.

Remember when I wrote about the story behind these shoes from Italy that I had to throw away? They were just too worn out. Well, I upgraded to these beautiful wooden clogs with leather straps. Everything I could ever want in a clog.

Pajamas Are Very Important

I have this weird fear that one night I’m going to wake up at 3 am to a smoky smell and then realize that my house is on fire and there’s no time to grab anything so I just run for my life and I get out to the street to see my home burning to the ground only to realize…I’m standing in my underwear.

For this reason, I make it a point to put on PJ’s before bed, no matter how hot it is. But I’m like turning a big 2-8 this month so it’s time to get this working girl a real pair of grown up pajamas. So far these palm leaf PJ’s are my numero uno pick. The rest all tie for numero dos.

What do you wear to bed? Maybe you and I both should invest in some big girl PJ’s. Let’s do it.

Target $19.99

Dress: For Friendsgiving

foggy dressLet’s be honest: it’s friendsgiving (remember last years?), and it’s all about the food. Your friends don’t really care what you wear. But it’s fun to play dress up, or dress down, or somewhere in-between. I’m leaning for dress-down but my friends have ordered we dress “semi-casual” so I might have to punch it up a notch.

Friendsgiving outfit inspiration…

Time to consult with my closet now. What are you/did you wear for friendsgiving? For my family Thanksgiving, I will probably be wearing something closer to the last look (minus all the coats, it’s Cali…), since I will likely get roped into a game of two hand touch football. Perks of having all brothers. #TurkeyBowl2k14

Happy Thanksgiving readers/friends, I’m so thankful for you all!

What’s In Store…

baseball shirt, blue shirt, white shirtMy friend Bonnie and her stylish fingers have been busy hunting through warehouse sales and combing through piles at sample sales in Downtown LA. She and I have such similar taste that most of the items she found are things I would wear like right now (plus or minus a shirt under/over a few  of the pieces).  We just did another round of pictures with more fall outfits, and will have them up in our shopify store soon, like really soon! More info to come, we can’t wait to show you!

I’m also on the look for more HoBag material aka vintage blouses. As soon as I get my hands on some great garments, I’ll be making a few more bags. Any great thrift stores that you can recommend in SoCal? I prefer ones that carry lots of grandma-esque prints & clothing….

Until then, there are always these HoBags to choose from~~
