Ode to Joy

Outfit Details:
gold tulle skirt // Kellie Falconer
coat (embroidered by me) // ModCloth by Tulle
flats // ModCloth
top, sweater // thrifted

The newest addition to the shop, our classic tulle skirt in glamorous gold for winter festivities.  View it here!

Mine made it's holiday debut at the Glenn Miller concert a few weeks ago, but everything got topsy-turvy and I only just now got around to shooting the outfit... everything was freshly dusted with snow last night, and it's just started again.  The world is so beautiful and gracious and steeped in old memories today.  
I fell in love with Twenty Thirteen.  It's been the best year of my life.

But I am so excited for Twenty Fourteen that every time I think about it, I can hardly sit still.
I don't even know what it is that I'm so excited about... Only everything in the whole wide world, I think.

May your last day of the old year be brilliant and peaceful, and blessed beyond measure.

The last few years, I've stayed home on NYE - doing one of my favorite things; dressing up, drinking tea, playing my accordion, and talking to myself on PhotoBooth.  All by myself.  It's balm to my introverted soul.
But tonightI'm head-over-heels excited to be headed to my firstest everest swing dance - wheeee!!
What are you up to this evening? I want to know!

  1. So pretty! Love that you took the photos in the snow. It's such a beautiful backdrop! Have fun swing dancing tonight. :D

    I'll be working till 11:15, then coming home and visiting with friends. Not the most exciting, but hey, I don't mind much!

  5. The new skirt is simply lovely and I like the way you styled it! :D My family has been rather busy, so last night we just spent a quiet evening at home. My mom and I stayed up until after midnight watching Netflix. :)
