Happy Holidays everyone! First and foremost my apologies for being away for so long. I have a new job that required that I hit the ground running and yep, I have been sprinting. I love it though! I have however, missed my blog, so I'll try to make it up to you with some merry winter sparkle and fabulous hand candy.
I am wearing this fun Twelve by Twelve sweater with a vintage black leather skirt (I consider it a basic neutral work piece), my favorite Priorities black blazer, ME TOO booties and a belt. At the office Christmas party, I just took the blazer off, touched-up my lipstick and voila! party time.
The shoes, which I have been wearing like crazy this winter are super comfortable booties that are classy with an edge (found them at Nordstrom Rack) and the leather and suede purse is Paloma Picasso and I've had it for about 15 years.
Now, the ring, isn't it fahhhbulous? I found it in a small bead shop in the charming town of Ashland, Oregon. Which takes me to the work by talented artist Wendy Gell.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with lots of sparkles and merry wishes. Until next time art lovers and fashionistas!
