Sleeveless Lapels

vest dress  vest dress

Keeping it short (like my skirt!) this Friday because I just had a thought ... is it really already time to think about the holidays? Like I should be looking up recipes for turkey day and booking tickets for Christmas. Scouring the Internet for gift ideas and new champagnes for toasting. And pre-stretching out pants for epic holiday eating. Am I late already? Wowie, where has the year gone - getting older yet ...

    1. The bag is super-cheap ... I used it as my airplane bag and fit a ton of stuff into it, plus was able to throw it around with no guilt!

  8. No! No mention of holidays! Panic attack coming on. I love the outfit. That necklace is awesome. I think I have that shirt. H & M is so great for layering pieces!

  9. What a cute dress! Yikes, I am so not ready for the holidays. Every year I say I will knit scarves as gifts and to start 1 a month. It's October and I am at 0. Have a great weekend!

  11. I like the vest! But of course my favourite is the little pop of turquoise. :)
    We've already had Canadian Thanksgiving here, so Black Friday and Christmas is just around the corner...it always sneaks up on me...

    1. I know. If we don't think about it, maybe it won't ... who are we kidding, we'll just be late again.

  13. Very cool dress, Lisa. What are these holidays of which you speak? I thought if I pretended they don't happen, they might skip me this year...lol. But the pants-stretching sounds like some holiday prep I can handle!

    1. Yeah I'm a pro pants-stretcher. With a couple of squats and windmills, I'm usually ready for some epic meal time. ;o)

    1. Buying presents for others is the best/worst part of Christmas for me - yay for gift giving, boo for trying to figure out what to get people ... and spending my money on people other than myself, haha.

  18. I wonder how you store everything. Like your jewellery... you have so much. How do you keep them so you can find them (and not forget half of them because they are in boxes)?

    1. I'm bad with my jewelry - I don't have a nice setup yet, but my main "storage" is a display stand (like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Velvet-Jewelry-Bracelet-Organizer-Display/dp/B003U4HQKA/ref=pd_sxp_grid_i_0_1) that I pile my necklaces and bracelets on to. And I also have a horse bust that is supposed to be a decorative item, but I've piled some necklaces on that. I don't have a load of earrings or rings, so I just keep them in a little dish. I agree that I'd lose track of them if they were stored away, so I keep them on display - not the neatest method, but that way I can easily see what I've got.

    2. I have a mannequin in my bedroom with lots of necklaces on her neck. Oh dear... if I want the bottom one.... hard words are spoken then. And they get tangled too.
      It still surprises me that the display stand and the horse bust is enough for you. I have draws and boxes with stuff next to the necklaces on the mannequin.
