Getting dress, I was pretending I was some sophisticated lady getting ready for a sophisticated birthday party. Obviously, this was not the case, but half the fun of life is living in pretend fabulousness! So, shhhh, please pretend that I went over to friends' house and sipped illegal bubbly champagne by a lit fire and exchanged stories. Okay?
I discovered this dress at Value Village this summer, but had yet to wear it. Whenever I slipped it on, the oversized shoulder pads made "80s go wrong!" a very feasible option. Like, everytime. But I finally found a way to wear it without screaming at the 80s (I hope). No offense, 80s.
My sibling, though clad in a winter jacket/ hat/ boots, was stuck outside for a good 30 minutes, so I promised to post a picture of her. Because she loves pictures. Of herself. A lot..
Not to sound overly arrogantly pleased with these photos and what not, but I have to say that it was so hard to choose my favourites. Therefore - my main moral of this story - I've concluded that I'd be a complete fail at working at a fashion photoshoot, as I'd pretty much cram as many photos as I could on a fashion spread.
Need to get more socks and still desperately seeking black oxfords!

I hope that you are all having a wonderful holiday. Oh wow, I sounded so cliche there, but whatever. Holidays make me cheesy, so yeah. Something about the music, fake trees, and bow ties everywhere. Hmm.
I hope you all enjoyed these photos! Thank you to everyone who gave me camera suggestions - will definitely look further in them. And thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you are great and cheesy and happy and spirity!
PS. Does anyone have lookbook? I have this new infatuation with continuously checking out that site, and I'm kind of desperate to join it. Only to find out that you need to be invited. I don't know the logistics, but if you could email me an invitation code or what not, I would love you so much and make you a super star with all my nonexistent powers :) But really, could anyone invite me? (I feel like a loser who's begging to get into a party. Which is kind of the situation here..)
