Before we run out to buy something new for all those parties during the holidays, let's look to our own closets. Strong recommendation to NOT buy anything red/green/holiday-ish because that's not practical. But, we really don't have to buy, we can shop right at home. If you are having a hard time choosing something, have a daughter or a friend help (Thanksgiving weekend would be a good time for this) put some pieces together. It's always nice to have a fresh eye look at our things.
PS By now we should own some bling to 'holiday' it up. Either chunk, junk or the real thing. Everything goes at this time of year, show it off and live it up!
