Fashion Friday: Black With Bling

Ek Thongprasert – Dagger Necklace

As much as we would love to add more color to our winter wardrobes, we keep coming back to basic black.  And why not?  It goes with everything, makes us look slimmer than we actually are and while it doesn’t hide dog hair (a good roller will get rid of that!) it does hide a multitude of sins.

Yes, basic black can be boring but how about embellished black?  Black with a bit of bling is just the thing to jazz up an outfit and we think these fashionable finds could do the trick.

And why wait til evening to shine?  We think a little daytime sparkle, especially around the holidays, is the perfect way to keep the festive mood going.

Fabulous Finds

Dear Santa…

We’re wondering if the post office would deliver a letter to the North Pole by Express Mail… since we’re so late in getting this one written.   But perhaps he reads blogs?  If so, here are a few things we’d love to have under the tree…
