Faux Fur Vest – Look of the Day

A fur jacket or vest is a big trend still this year and I finally found one that called out my name when I was visiting a consignment shop.  I scored a killer deal with this one because not only was it a bargain at $25 but it is also reversible with pockets.  Two for one and pockets? Can’t beat that kind of bargain.

Fur Vest 4 Reversible side has pockets as well.

Holiday Tag – I’m It!

Thanks to Uniquely Brandid’s blog post I’ve been tagged!  This is a tag I do not mind in the least bit although coming up with answers might test my brain a bit as I’m short on coffee at the moment 😉  So let’s see where this all ends up, shall we?

And now on to the questions!

1. What is your favorite Christmas song?

Oh good grief! I have so many!  It’s not Christmas unless I hear the Charlie Brown tune or Otis Redding’s Merry Christmas Baby for starters.

2. What is your favorite Christmas treat.

Garrett’s Popcorn – I am serious about this!

3. What is your favorite childhood Christmas memory?

Let me preface this by saying my parents were loving albeit a bit twisted in some ways (guess I know where my sense of humor comes from, huh?) but one year I crawled down the hall thinking I was slick and was going to peek to see when Santa brought me some goodies.  My parents knew I was there so the conversation went like this “Well, Santa will be coming soon but if he comes and sees any little girls trying to peek at him he will throw coal dust in her eyes and not leave her anything!”  Yes, a bit sick but you should’ve seen me backing it up fast down the hall and back into my room.  Not sure if it was Santa or my parents that I heard snickering.

4. What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever given?

When we gave the kids their very first Nintendo and Mario game.  I can still see them hopping up and down and hugging each other almost in tears because they got the game.

5. Do you make or buy keepsake ornaments for your family each year?

I used to make them when the kids were little ones, now I buy ornaments with the year on them for the tree for us.

6. Would you rather be one of Santa’s elves or a Reindeer?

I am not pulling jack!!!!  I will be one of the elves that helps Santa and hangs out at the mall with him.

7. Gift wrap or Gift bags?

Actually gift boxes!  Put the gift in the decorated box, tape shut, put on a tag and BAM! Done!

8. Do you own a Santa hat?

I’ve got antlers and an elf hat and one red top hat but no Santa hat.

9. Do you prefer Black Friday or Day After Christmas Sales?

Day after sales!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?

Egg Nog with extra nog (wink wink) I prefer the soymilk version.

It’s a Wrap!

A wrap by DVF that is.  Every woman should have at least one of her wrap dresses in their closet because they are pretty timeless and fit any and every body so well..not to mention the silk jersey is great for traveling.  The material packs well and barely wrinkles.  And to top it off, this one has pockets!
