One of my friends held a party on Boxing Day, the day after Christmas, and I took this as the perfect opportunity to wear both my beloved Domino Dollhouse star dress (which I also wore last year on Christmas) and my festive new Crown & Glory crown.
The crown came in my most recent Glitterati box, and I love it. One of my favorite things about the Glitterati is getting to try things that I might not have bought on my own, and that I end up loving. It’s a great way to experiment with new styles.
Dress: Domino Dollhouse, belt and rhinestone ring: ASOS Curve, teggings: Re/Dress, shoes: L.L. Bean, necklace and wristbands: So Good, earrings: not sure, rose ring: really old, cardigan: Kohl’s
This cardigan is an old favorite. I don’t wear it often since it’s missing a ton of sequins (especially on the sides, where my arms rub against my torso when I walk), but I brought it out a week or so ago and have been wearing it constantly since. It adds so much happy sparkle to all my holiday outfits.
I would love to have more sequins in my wardrobe, but most sequined garments either make me itch (because they touch bare skin, or because their lining is too thin), or have the sequin-losing problem that this one does. If someone ever invents non-itchy, non-fall-off-y sequins, I would be all over that.
I love how woodland-y the crown is–it’s even got a little mushroom and a pinecone! Perfect for frolicking around in forests (which I need to do more often…I haven’t been hiking in a while, and I am in desperate need of nature time).
The green nail polish wan’t an intentional part of the Christmas-y color scheme–I did it a few days earlier because I just felt like having lime green nails–but it worked out pretty well. A darker green would have been better, but the only other green nail polish I have is mint.
The party was a blast. Yes, there’s a Jewish star on top of the Christmas tree–half of the apartment’s residents are Jewish, and half are Christian. 🙂
There was some boxing. 😉
… and also much coziness. I tested out a new fuzzy blanket that my friends had just received as a holiday gift, and was happy to find it quite comfortable.
There was also much tasty food, including these quince and spice fruit leathers that one of my friends made:
And much cuteness!
I am, as always, grateful for my community. I am so lucky to have found such an awesome group of people!
