December 2011 - The Fashionably Broke

red velvet


Erika ran out to a holiday dinner party in this festive ensemble, which was quickly thrown together, last minute, in the Nordstrom Rack dressing room.  It was the kind of day where you have 5,837 things to do [because duh, Christmas is in a few days, so it wouldn't be right if you didn't] and it would just be easier to buy a new head-to-toe look, rather than even think about what to wear tonight.  Given our strong appreciation for a dramatic flare in a nice pair of pants, we spotted these, and decided everything else must revolve around them.  The soft lace and red velvet fabrics, complimenting the holiday season so well, were just screaming "buy me."  

& my first attempt at a fun camera trick ~ Bokeh, inspired by Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere.

Hoping everyone had a fun and relaxing holiday, as did we!  More merry posts to come. xo
