The Ultimate Pre-Game Song for NYE

I've listened to this like fifteen times. The songs change so fast that I slightly feel like I have whiplash, but it is inarguably the perfect pre-game mix for tonight's NYE revelries! What are you doing? What are you wearing? We're attending an 80s themed party so I'm foregoing the obvious cocktail dress for something a little more MC Hammer-esque. The Mr. will be channeling Kevin Bacon from Footloose. He loves that movie! Wishing you many midnight kisses!

p.s. A little note from Society Social :)

December, Seee Ya!

A surprise came in the mail- Charlotte made an appearance!

Speaking of Charlotte, I designed a little something to add to the tufted collection. She finally came through production and will be debuting in January.

Remember that photo shoot on the Upper West Side? It came out in Matchbook and it was so fun to see how everything turned out!

I was also invited to be the Guest Editor for the month and couldn't help but to splash red all over my allotted round-up :)

There were holiday parties galore! Inslee, Tamra, and I lusting over the beautiful shoes at the Coye Nokes social. They had a tarot card reader too!

I almost stroked when I saw my Fifis in the December issue of Lonny styled by Eddie Ross. I swear he has style coming out of his toes.

Huffington Post Live invited me to participate in a quick segment with HGTV's Hilary Farr and also featured the Hayworth on the front page (!) of the Huffington Post Home section.

During another vintage buy, I got totally ripped off. This book sold for approx one dolla in 1954 but I paid $10 for it. The owner of the booth was nowhere to be found and sometimes a girl just wants what she wants, right?! It's Betty Crocker's Guide to Easy Entertaining and it had me at bar cart.

Did you work right up until Christmas? I did but thankfully took the last week off to spend some time with family. This little sugar bug nugget is the best playmate. She loves to give kisses on the lips. I love kissing on the lips :)

Christmas was spent in the city, just the two of us! We made a shamefully large dinner, set a festive table, and put our trusty folding table to use. It makes me laugh that we have to push our ottoman out of the way and basically rearrange the entire living room to eat a proper meal at a proper table. Oh, New York!

Hey y'all! Another month in review! In the new year, I resolve to get back on a regular blogging schedule instead of these monthly check-ins! It's a genuine delight to read your comments and notes.  I really can't thank you enough for stopping by and sharing your day with me :) I will be spending the day reflecting on all the blessings of 2012- aren't we all so lucky despite it all? Happy New Year to you!

Sunday Brunch in the City

Happy Sunday friends! I'm off to brunch before a little shopping and this interactive art installation (!) I don't think it can be argued that NYC does brunch like no other city. Bottomless mimosas, bloody mary bars, biscuits to caviar if you please. I've always loved going to The Smith and Hudson Clearwater (our fave!) recently started brunch service but in the case you're feeling adventurous here are some best brunch lists from Refinery 29  and New York Mag. No matter where I am I always go for the eggs benedict! What about you?  Hope you enjoy this last little bit of the weekend!

My Favorite Winter Accessories

On my last thrifting adventure I stumbled upon the daintiest 1950s fur hat and a retro fur coat that fit so perfectly that I couldn't leave either behind. The total bill set me back about $45 (!) There's something so glamorous and over-the-top about a little fur. Don't you think? Do you have a favorite winter accessory? The most beautiful snow is falling outside my window and I know what I'll be wearing whilst galavanting about the city. Hope y'all are having a lovely (warm) weekend!

Fur baby:

"I'm not nuts...I just want to feel it all."

 A brand new trailer for Girls Season 2 just came out, as if I could possibly get more excited to reunite with Hannah, Marnie, Jessa, and Shoshanna. I know most people are counting down to the New Year but I'm also crossing off the days 'til January 13!

p.s. I'd love to know, which girl do you most relate to? I'm not entirely sure but I do know that I wish I were as fearless as Jessa annnd like Hannah I could probably utter the title of this post in defense of almost everything I do ;)
