Writer's Workshop: My Holiday Finest

It's been a week of Holiday wear.  I went to a party last Saturday and we've  had contests at work all week and while my sister had the kids last Sunday and I was supposed to be finishing my Christmas Shopping and instead discovered Stein Mart ~ Have you been? I mean I'd seen the commercials, but I hadn't actually ever been in one... it is T.R.O.U.B.L.E.!!!~ so I've got my Christmas Outfit all set for church and then a party on Christmas Eve.

Here's what I plan to wear Christmas Eve

The pants and shoes I already had... these are the pants I mentioned last week that didn't used to fit and now are roomy... you can shoot me... I'd shoot me too...normally.  I picked up the sweater at Stein Mart... it was calling my name... really... and I have this really great red coat... I'm SO excited!!!

Last weekend I went to a party at a friend's house.  It was casual, so this is what I wore:

I looked very tall... I like looking tall!

And last but not least... the piece you cannot live with out... the one I know you are all jealous of... so was I... in fact, so jealous that I really did borrow it from a friend for the occasion.  

Without further ado, I bring you my Award Winning

Ugly Holiday Sweater!

Okay, technically it's a sweatshirt, but I really did win a $25 gift card to dinner!

5.) Put together a holiday outfit you'd love to wear at a holiday party should a holiday party ever be on your list of things to do.

And maybe I misread the prompt, because these are all things I've already worn, or really will wear, but oh well *grins*

Happy Holidays!

I love your outfits. The Charlie Brown tree shirt looks like such fun!

Love the clothes! I've never been to that store before.

Oh, LOVE! The shoes! The boots! OMG! How jealous of those am I?!?! And what a cute sweatshirt! :P tee hee!

Shell said...

I've seen that store, but had no clue what it was!

As a teacher, you can totally get away with lots of ugly Christmas sweaters. ;)

I love both outfits but the second one (with the jeans) is my favourite because I'm casual like that. Unless I'm going to a really fancy party or a wedding.

Niiiiiiiiiceeee sweatshirt! :P

Love those red pumps! :)

You also have photographs of actual clothes you have. Nice.
I went for on-line clothing catalog photos for mine!

Amy said...

Love the boots and the Charlie Brown Christmas tree shirt.

All cute! And I wouldn't shoot you, you've worked hard to fit into things--or, as in this case, have them be too loose!

I have a great gold shrug and emerald green empire waist top with "gems" on it, but I think I'll be too cold to wear them on Christmas.

My friend made me a gorgeous ruffly scarf with sequins in it, so I'm planning to wear that with jeans and a sweater. And since I'm the shortest in my family, some kind of heels!

I am loving the ugly sweatshirt!!! I need to nab one of those for future purposes, lol. :)

Cyn & Co. said...

Great outfits, I love 'em both, the shoes especially!!! (I'm a shoe person)

And that ugly sweater is awesome! Definitely award worthy.

Great post, visiting from Mama Kat's.

I LOVED Steinmart, and then they closed, thank goodness! Nice ugly sweater. Maybe we should do an ugly Christmas sweater meme next year on our blogs. Wouldn't that be funny?!
