This Week in Fashion

It is finally time for me to go Christmas crazy, I always make sure to wait until after Thanksgiving is over. But now I will be listening Christmas music every day and watching tons of Christmas movies!!! We're getting our Christmas tree today! Every year we go to Jones Family Farms the day after Thanksgiving to get our Christmas tree. It is one of my favorite traditions [the other is the 3 movies we watch in the days leading up to Christmas Eve (Holiday Inn, White Christmas and Scrooge with Albert Finney)]. Then later today we're going to my Aunt's to celebrate Thanksgiving with my Dad's side of the family. Yesterday we went to my Grandmother's for my Mom's side. We split it up so we don't have to rush to be 2 places in one day.

Here are my outfits from the week, I had Jury Duty on Tuesday...GROSS and Wednesday was my bosses' last day at work. I am SO depressed, he is one of the main reasons I love my job so much, but he had to move back to his home state :/ I have no idea how I am going to survive at work without him. If Thursday and Friday of last week are any indication of what it's going to be like I will may be time to try and get my dream job in fashion...I'll give it a few months to see if I can handle it though ;)

BUT on the plus side some amazingness occurred on Monday! If you read my Twitter you already know, but if not here's the story: As you know from this post, I've been obsessed with the Miu Miu leopard sandals since I saw them.  I have eBay email me whenever an item is listed with "Miu Miu leopard" in the name.  Every day I would get a couple emails saying "New items matched ..." and every time I would look and be disappointed because my beloved shoes would not be there. But Monday morning was different, I checked the email and there they were!! THE SHOES!! I held my breath and looked at the size and they were MY SIZE! So I hurriedly called over a coworker and asked her "am I crazy for buying these" And being the fashion lover she is she said, "Of course not!"  So I pulled the trigger and bought them, they were expensive but totally worth it because I LOVE them! They arrived on Wednesday and fit perfectly! So of course I wore them for both my Thanksgiving celebrations ;)
