Oh dear! Another month and so few blogposts to show for it.
I’m alive, I promise. It’s been a dizzy busy December!
Let’s dedicate this blogpost to filling you in and catching you up on all the many fun-filled adventures that took place in the Life and Times of Moi this past month….
Holiday Hair with The Proudest Pony
I don’t know about you…but when it comes to my look, my hair-game is weak sauce!!!
So when I was invited to this blogger exclusive evening at The Proudest Pony – wild horses couldn’t keep me away. See what I did there? 😉
If you’re following me on Instagram (if you’re not – you should – click here) you can see the entire hair transformation there 🙂
Corporate Holiday Party
I work for a huge company – and haven’t been interested in going to the companywide holiday party in a few years.
But since I got my hair did the night before, and had a dress that was dying to be worn…. I had to make an appearance this year 😉
This faux fur zebra coat was the first I’ve found that didn’t add extra bulk to my bod …. and fit me perfectly in the shoulders. It was from Laura Petite – isn’t it lovely?
I’ve owned this Kiyonna Valentina Illusion dress for a few years now….and THIS was the first time I was wearing it out!!!
Hooray for corporate cocktail parties!!
Toronto Vintage Society’s White Kitschmas
The first weekend of December, Toronto Vintage Society hosted our annual holiday party – this year with a White Christmas theme.
This was the crowd at about 9pm!!! It was a super fun night, with a number of great bands and performances, with a full house all night long.
These were some of the beautiful homemade kitsch being sold at the event – I may have picked up a few for myself 🙂Here are a few snaps from the TVS Album…
Team Xmas Lunch and Office Party
Remember that fabulous hat I WON from Goorin Bros last month? Well, I picked up another glittery kitschy facinator from this year’s TVS White Kitschmas…clipped it to this hat, and voila la!
Holiday Amazingness was Born!!!
It was the perfect for my Team Lunch where festive gear was strongly recommended 🙂
Later that week, our entire department had some mandatory fun with more festive furvolity and general office appropriate holiday shenanigans! 🙂
Star Wars Marathon – Xmas Edition
I’m one of those rare people who only ever saw the Star Wars films as an adult, not as a kid. But I was an instant fan…and with the release of Episode VII, I hosted a movie marathon…
Naturally, I HAD to dress for the theme too….
I had tickets for THE FORCE AWAKENS Christmas Day –and oh yes, there’s an outfit for that – duh!!!

Toronto Distillery Christmas Market
It never really feels like Christmas until you’ve visited the Distillery’s Christmas Market.
Sadly, it’s not quite the the same experience without snow. But we made the best of it…
Eating GIANT Turkey Legs, in the street …. Keepin’ it Klassy. That’s how we do!
Outfit Deets: Plaid scarf/shawl, Reitmas; Jacket, Danier Leather
The Many Open House Holiday Get-Togethers
I’ve got so many lovely friends who open up their homes for some good ol’ fashioned holiday cheer.
I participated in the vintage cookie exchange again this year – click here for the cookie recipe.
But this time baked up a few billion extra and packaged them up as giveaways and hostess gifts 😉
One of my favourite holiday looks this year was this one: BLACK & RED!
Orphan Xmas Eve Dinner
What was originally gonna be a dinner for two in pjs xmas eve….became a proper grown-up dinner for 6 xmas eve 🙂
Friends are the Family you choose.
Alas, I’ve yet to make any firm plans for New Years Eve just yet….
There’s plenty happening. I did pickup this amazing beaded vintage jacket…that will very likely be incorporated into my outfit, once I make a decision on what to do for NYE.
What are you doing for NYE? What are YOU gonna wear? Tell me in the comments section below 🙂
Hope you all had a fabulous time off from work, and had lots of time to catchup with family and friends and everyone in-between.
Looking forward to 2016 and all the adventures to be had in life and fashion.
Thank you for following the blog! Wishing you and yours a wonderful New Year ahead! xo
