Randoms + Christmas Giveaway


Haven't been in a blogging mood lately.  So sorry, so moody.  Here is an outfit that I wore this weekend.  This is my most favorite scarf ever and it's from Forever 21, of all places!  It is seriously the softest, warmest scarf for winter and it was nine dollars.  I wish I would have bought one in every color.  

You probably noticed (or didn't) that I am wearing yet another pair of Chloe boots.  I originally had the red ones and I bought them in a *panic, rage, must have* moment when they were on sale, with the caveat being that they were two sizes too big.  I tried and tried to make them work (stuffing the toe, inserts), but they were just too big.  I came to my senses and sold them on eBay and subsequently bought the ones I am wearing in the picture.  Win-win. 

Does anyone else have this mindset?  Ask any of my friends -- I am notorious for having things in sizes that do not fit me at all just because it was on sale or a hot item.  I am nuts.  I once bought a dress on sale in a size 12 and had it altered.  Think outside the box, people! *crazy eyes*

I am just not feelin' this Holiday season.  I can't bring myself to get into the spirit.  I've been seriously down in the dumps lately and I don't know why.  I love fall and typically love the Holidays but this year I just want it to be January already.  

Perhaps I can be in a better Holiday mood by having a CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY!!! 



No, this isn't Oprah's Favorite Things, but it's one of my favorite things, this Aquiesse Candle!!!!!

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment!  I will pick a winner next Tuesday.

Pink and Fabulous said...

That dress is great and I love the booties in black! I cannot get on board with the holidays this year. Zero motivation. Blah.

candace said...

I used to buy things I didn't even LIKE if they were on sale and a brand I loved. Sooo many mistakes made at the register! I don't do that anymore, though, as we move twice a year and I have a rule that I get rid of anything I haven't worn in the last 5 months. Sometimes I hate to part with it, but what am I hanging on to it for if it just sits there, you know?? Anyway, I feel you on the lack of holiday spirit, but I usually get this way. I blame it on seasonal affect disorder, cold weather, and lack of warmth. :)

Shelly said...

Cute boots!!

Kimberley said...

Giving always puts me in a good mood! Hope your Holidays get happier!

The Mitchell Family said...

Love your dress!

Amber said...

I totally know how you feel. I was going to try and "force" myself into the christmas spirt this past weekend by going to starbucks, blasting christmas music and going to look at the christmas lights with my boyfriend, then coming home and watching christmas movies.

And then it was rainy and gloomy and warm instead of cold and festive and I was like F that s***.

But candles always make things better :)

Toni said...

I really like the boots in black! :)

Sloan Crawford said...

Sorry you're feeling down! Watching Christmas movies always helps me!

I love that purse!! Ooh, and that candle looks like it smells so good.

Life as the Mrs. said...

I, too, go nuts with a sale! I've never bought too-big shoes (although it reminds me of Dolly Parton's quote in "Steel Magnolias,") but have been known to buy on-sale dresses a few sizes too big and have them altered. Whatever works!

I love the outfit as usual! I hear 'ya, I've been kind of blah lately and haven't even put up my tree or stockings! Also, my tailor thinks I'm crazy as I frequently bring her things in a size XL or 8 and ask them to take it in. It was the only size left lol!

I hate to admit it, but I've been having a blue Christmas this year too. It stinks. I received a Christmas card today with this stamped on the back and it made me smile, "The most precious gift of Christmas arrived in a very small bundle with no bow".
