Christmas Cactus

I wore a cactus print the other day, my white dress with the yellow bow at the neck, and a woman commented and said, "I just don't agree with that.  It's the wrong season for that print."  I laughed and said, "You know sometimes you've just got to go for it.  You've got to reach out, grab a piece of summer and bring it with you through the cold moths."  She laughed too and I think this little incident has been an ice breaker for us, because even though I see her regularly, we've never really connected.  Now, I think we're becoming pals.  Personal anecdote aside, if you've read my blog for more than a week or two, you already know about my love of cactus prints, but she wasn't wrong about the colors being a very summery mix.  So, I determined right then and there to create a Christmas-y cactus look and I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

Love Letters Skirt

As a follow up to my Love Letters Dress, I wanted to take a moment to showcase the skirt I was able to make from the left over fabric.  I love this print and lots of fabric shops have it on clearance now.

Unique-Vintage Fall

This gorgeous Plaid Trudy tartan print dress from Unique-Vintage was an instant favorite of mine.  I'm so happy to be able to bring it out of the closet again and don it from autumn until the end of winter.  It's thick fabric makes it perfect for winter although the very form fitting bodice and arms will probably help keep me motivated to continue my exercise regimen through the holidays.  If you're interested in this piece, consider ordering a size up.

Teal Love

I was looking for this dress several years ago and absolutely couldn't find it.  I settled for something similar and very lovely, but when this dress popped up on ThredUp for $6 I couldn't resist.  Teal and black with a peter pan collar and it's short enough for me to show off these adorable kitty tights.
