What I'm Wearing: Cranberry Splash

Hello lovelies! It's Christmas crunch time! Are you ready? I am finally done shopping and I am going to start wrapping tonight. Hooray! Does anyone else love wrapping presents? I find it relaxing and fun to make the packages look pretty with colorful paper and bows! It is already getting crazy to go to the store, if you've been out recently you know what I'm talking about. I offered to take this lady's cart back to the corral for her at the grocery store today and she gave me a dirty look. When I saw her license plate read "W WITCH," I understood everything. True Story.

It was back to work with me today and it's so hard to concentrate when you know so much fun lies ahead for Christmas. But still, I had to get dressed. I was feeling the Christmas spirit a little so I decided to don me now my gay apparel - a cranberry sweater qualifies, right? I paired the sweater with a faux leather skirt, lace leggings, a pair of boots and a cute snow leopard clutch.
 Sweater, Leggings and Necklace: Kohl's, Faux Leather Skirt: H&M,

  18. ZOMG! Okay, so I offered to take this lady's cart back to the cart holder thingy for her, and not ONLY did she give me a dirty look -- so dirty, in fact, that I withered up and died a little inside -- she made it a point to leave her cart directly behind my car. I thought about punching her in the baby maker, but a) I would have gotten arrested by the cop standing nearby, and b) (and more problematically), in a weird and unexpected twist of fate, I probably would have inadvertently ended up punching myself in the baby maker... which would have been decidedly un-awesome. So, in the spirit of Christmas, I settled for sneering at her, and sent a mental letter to Santy advising him to give her coal for Christmas.

  37. Those tights are SO cute and different. You also look amazing in that leather skirt. I'm too afraid that I'll look like a fatty if I wear any type of leather on my bottom half, haha. You look incredible, though!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
