Plaid girl

New favorite shirt?
I think so. I've at least got to work on getting my money's worth so I won't feel too guilty if it ends up on the blog weekly.

I had really fun weekend; Meg invited Christine and I to be her 'dates' on one of her Marshalls Project Fab challenges. We got treated to dinner, and like all our dinner dates, also went shopping at Marshalls. I was good and mostly just did Christmas shopping.

On Saturday during the day, I went to several Christmas Fairs with my Mom, and bought three pairs of vintage earrings, including a pair of itty-bitty hexagon studs.

On Friday evening I went to the open house at Taken for Granite, a local gift shop where a friend works. I got to sip champaign and nibble on homemade cookies while I perused all the glitzy gifts and baubles.

The Christmas season has officially begun.

  1. I wanted to get this J. Crew Factory shirt but it sold out! I'm sad I couldn't see you while I was in CT but it was such a short trip (24 hours!) Next time! :)

  15. When you find a perfect piece, I almost think it's better if you wear it on the blog regularly - it really drives home that point that although you're a blogger, you're also a normal person who isn't buying new things for every single post. Plus, plaid and leather and sparkly statement necklaces are a fabulous, fabulous combination :)
