How adorable is this nutcracker print dress from Silly Old Sea Dog? I'm so smitten with this UK-based shop! They have tons of amazing novelty print dresses and skirts, and best of all, they carry to women of lots of different sizes (many of their dresses are available in UK sizes 6-28)! And considering the dress came from overseas, the shipping was incredibly fast; it even arrived in time for me to wear it for The Nutcracker performances I had to work at the box office! I've gotten lots of compliments on it every time I've worn it, and it's such a great holiday dress.
I can't be the only one who goes a little sugar-crazy during the holidays, right? It's very difficult not to indulge when there are so many yummy treats around. Luckily, this clutch from New Look satisfies my sweet tooth (at least a little bit!). Unlike some of my other novelty clutches, this one is actually big enough to hold the necessities, and I love the little bite detail!
I'm starting to get really excited for Christmas -- especially because we were given next week off from work! My next paycheck will be sort of sad, but I've been feeling kind of burned out lately, so I'll gladly take a little financial hit in favor of some peace of mind. I'll be great to be able to spend time with friends and get some much-needed rest.
