I wore this outfit Christmas Day in California. I've had this Igigi wrap dress for...a decade?? The last time I wore it was in December 2013. The emerald color is incredibly lovely, but does not photograph well. In fact, I recreated this outfit just yesterday to have these pictures taken with this adorable mural because the ones we took on Christmas turned out terribly...for which I am secretly pleased cute is this wall?! 
The last time I organized my sock drawer, I rediscovered these fabulous sparkly glittery gold over-the-knee socks...they stay up great on their own, but had this dress been any shorter, I could have held them up over my knees with garters. It was cold, so it didn't occur to me to get a close I cropped in so you could perhaps better see how marvelous they are...
Christmas tree with presents all around at David's grandma's house.   Fuzzy bunny sockies!!! I love wearing these to bed, so David gets me new ones every year. David's mom gathered photos from her siblings & their families to make an album for her mom...she was really touched. Kissy Christmas selfie.
New dresses! Super Boo got me 6 dresses for Christmas...that is one of the things I love about him...he knows I love Igigi & Kiyonna instead of deciding I have more than enough dresses already (I do)...he gets me more because he knows it will make me happy. 
 Red hair with green is such a striking combination...
My Christmas make-up included...Girl Cosmetics brown with gold glitter eyeliner (this company no longer exists, it was a present from Kate back in 1999!), Mon Ennui Cosmetics eyeshadow in Druid, Urban Decay eyeshadow in Halfbaked, UD lipstick in F-Bomb, & China Glaze glittery polish in Ruby Pumps.
