Merry (belated) Christmas

So my boyfriend and I built a Christmas trees out of wine bottles (actually, he built it). I am allergic to the scent of most Christmas trees so this was a creative alternative.
I am against buying wrapping paper (so expensive) so I wrapped this little box with a brooks brother's bag and tied it with a sparkly ribbon.
These two boxes (above and below) are wrapped in ads from Vogue magazine.
High fashion is much prettier than snowmen anyway.

La Petite Marmoset's 3 Way Style Challenge








La Petite Marmoset's 3 Way Style Challenge

I'm so excited to share with you a peek of Katherine of La Petite Marmoset's 3 Way Style Challenge. Katherine asked two other bloggers (Ashley of La Belle Vie Vintage and Allix of The District 1107) and me to take three of her reconstructed vintage pieces and style them three different ways.

Click here to see more pictures of how we styled a #1 Cape #2 Beaded dress (pictured above) and #3 Body-con skirt. Additional pictures are available on La Petite Marmoset's Facebook Page. Like it here!

High Low


| Dress: La Petite Marmoset from Violet Boutique | Heels: Alexander Wang |
Blazer: Aqua | Necklace: Vintage | Lips: Revlon 'Forever Scarlet' |

About the look:
How amazing is this high-low dress by Katherine of La Petite MarmosetI picked it up during Katherine's look book party at Violet Boutique in Adam's Morgan. Have you been there? I recommend it! Violet has an amazing collection of dresses, blouses, and fun holiday tops. It is priced reasonably with clothing you will not find online or at other boutiques in the area. Plus, the owner, Julie, is so nice and helpful. Violet carries La Petite Marmoset's one-of-a-kind creations. If you're not in the DC area and love LPM's pieces, you can buy a selection of her collection online
