I purchased my mother the new Tony Bennett Christmas album on which he does a cover of My Favorite Things so I was inspired to put together this little collage. What are your favorite things for the holidays?

Merry Christmas to me, love my boyfriend. I just love this ring...sorry the photo doesn't do it justice. My boyfriend and I exchanged gifts early because we went to pick them out together anyways...that way, as the Grinch would say, there will be no sad faces on Christmas! I can't wait to see what everyone else receives for Christmas, hope you get all that you are dreaming of (well the realistic things of course) ..darn reality..cuts down my wish list quite a fair bit.

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posting. I am now FINALLY done my finals...very exciting. I just have a bit more work to finish over the holidays so I am pleased to have a big load of stress relieved! Hope everyone else's finals went well too! I've got lots going on around here for the holidays but I will try to post as much as possible, including holiday outfits...I just love Christmas parties, they are always such a good excuse to dress up, for those of us (like me) who aren't bold enough to rock the fully done up look every day of the week. Here are some really cool shots from the selby, I am really digging these spaces and the style of the homeowners.

I'm sure many of you have heard the buzz surrounding Michelle Obama's inaguration day attire. ALL of the top designers are vying to outfit the next first lady, and newfound style icon, for the historic event. I find all of the designs just stunning, but my affinity for Chanel leads me to say this is by far my favorite. I think it is just perfect for Ms. Obama...classic, iconic, and yet understated...all the reasons why I love Chanel, and why Michelle is becoming one of my style muses. I fear; however, that she will not choose such an established (and costly) designer, all in keeping with support of the working class ideals...none the less I can not wait to see who she chooses.

I could not possibly end this post without speaking of the Chanel metiers d'art pre-fall collection for 2009. I am simply captivated...for all aforementioned reasons. It is no surprise Karl has achieved perfection once again in presenting the best of the house's traditional faire.

This may just be the most glorious photograph I have discovered in quite some time. The one and only Grace Kelly.
