i promise to return shortly... christmas eve til now has been a whirlwind of crazy, and i haven't had the desire to do much except complain.
related but unrelated: so i really, really am looking for a good indian headdress. i'm not sure for what reason, but i am sure i need one. this, above, fooled me... but it's about 16 times better that way.

hello, pretty little things, so conveniently in my size.
apologies and holiday wishes: i've been illin' for the past couple of days (perfect timing, immune system! way to go!) and have so much christmas stuff ahead of me (wrapping wrapping wrapping), plus work, plus a very short christmas eve eve with joe before we part ways (he to denver, me to dallas) until saturday (me to denver). i don't know what's wrong with me... we had a perfect date night of sushi and sparkling sake and tempura ice cream then BAM i felt awful, and our entire sunday of christmas movie-watching and cookie-baking was replaced by me sleeping. and sleeping. and sleeping. i am rambly and tired and hurty and sad because of all of the above. so happy holidays... i hope to be in better spirits next time.

so i'm hopelessly and hopelessly addicted to this australian lingerie line. you may remember my earlier swooning over this cami. i really thought that couldn't be topped.
until i saw these pieces.
hopeless, i tell you! hopeless.
p.s. look at this sexy garter belt. looks like it's meant for a (sexy) superhero, doesn't it?
i'm embarrassed to say i wasn't familiar with the lake & stars until i came across the sale on gilt last week. and, by that time, all of their pretty little rompers had already been snatched up.
go check out their past lookbooks... there's a chance you can still find a piece or two in the gilt sale.
but hurry! what's left of the sale ends at 11 a.m. (cst) monday. enjoy!
still not a gilt member? now you are.

there are some things about myself that i'm just not proud of: ability to sleep hours upon hours AFTER the recommended eight? that's one. the fact i just downed two glasses of eggnog. for breakfast. at 2:30 p.m. that's another. (i think laziness is the common thread here.)
but, also? desperately wanting these rabbit earmuffs. rabbit.
i know, i know. to think a perfectly pink rabbit was slain to benefit my cold, wind-chapped ears. i do hate myself.

i die every time. these girls. those clothes. every. time.
amazing work by kelsey foster.
also, amazing work by katie did, who really needs to branch out and make these little ensembles for me.
p.s. i really hope it's ok to post photos of other people's adorable children.
