This year, it was all about the McQueen shoes!
I do enjoy Oxfords and bought a great pair at TopShop in June!
Everyone kept petting my head and saying I looked Russian. So I spent the night working on my Russian accent! It was super fun and great to see everyone before the Christmas madness.
Adam's company took us all to Whistler last weekend for their Christmas party. It was tres fantastic, they put us up at the 4 Seasons and we had a big dinner/dance on the Saturday night. I even saw Queen Latifa & her girlfriend...I only said hello though. My camera batteries had died...oh the irony!
The dilemma every year is what on earth do I wear to someone else's work Christmas party? I ended up playing it safe with a sexy detail like lace, but in a very conservative style. There are always those girls, however, who miss the memo on class and show up in their barely-there clubbing dress (and cheap heels). I think it is more about looking effortlessly fabulous. You have to know your audience!
I love the fact that fashion is so versatile & that you can take on almost any persona you wish. This year it seemed as though everyone was embracing their inner-nerd with large, thick framed glasses. I must say, there is something so sexy & intriguing about nerd glasses.

Farmers, lumberjacks, & Al Borland were rejoicing this year, because it seemed as though evvvvverything was plaid! Hats, coats, shirts, scarves, dresses, shoes, bags, hair accessories, my goodness...you name it, it was available in plaid.
I made a few investments in classic plaid button ups myself, but opted not to go too mad for plaid. I also didn't want to show up to a hipster party and be wearing the same shirt & skinny jeans as a guy...not like that has happened to me before or anything....
Plaid is very classic but since it has been so huge for a few years, I think we won't be seeing a ton of it this spring. Don't quote me on that though, I've been wrong before!
