This year I get to host Christmas dinner and have been menu-planning for over a week and dithering back and forth between the many ideas rolling around in my head. I know exactly what I plan to make for my first course and second course, but the third course is giving me fits. I am serving beef tenderloin, but folks like a starch with their main course, so I am trying to choose between Pommes Anna, Patatas Aioli or Mushroom Risotto. I am planning on roasted vegetables for the other side dish. Anyway, my shopping list grows and luckily I have a gorgeous clutch to carry it and a handy pen around for reminding me of things I need to buy. 🙂
I love my outfit today. It starts with the jacket I picked up a Monso. It’s a lovely autumnal plaid with a shearling lining for warmth. It’s an older design from the sculptie era, but I love it anyway. I added a gorgeous brocade skirt from Baiastice that was released in November. Some might say plaids and brocades don’t go together. They are silly. It looks fab. My shoes are brand new, from MiaMai’s newest release.
Here’s a closer look at the handbag which is from Swallow whose accessories beautiful blend modern and Art Nouveau influences. The handbag comes with a color changing hud so I can wear it in several bold colors and change the metal and lion’s head. Notice how lovely SLink’s purse hold mesh hand works. I am so thrilled with them.
My hair is from Catwa – a floaty, flexi cut that is beautiful when dancing or when running around the grocery store! The skin is from Glam Affair’s new line Amberly. I took the snaps at Sol Aria, a lovely picturesque Italian village where times seems to have stopped in 1950.
