What initially drew me to this dress was the paisley detailing at the bottom. But unlike the bright paisleys we’re used to seeing, I appreciate Free People’s risk in taking the detailing into a darker world of blacks, deep purples, but still retaining a hint of girly rosy pinks and bright creams.
Life in LA has been fairly low key as of late. Currently, like most bloggers, I’m knee-deep in the holiday spirit. My roommate and I are slowly, but surely decorating the house with festive winter-themed accents, from glimmery pine cone garlands to metallic candle votives. I’ve already started started with the Christmas music, showing a particular fondness for the folksy Christmas station on Spotify. As the holidays quickly approach (with Hanukkah starting on Sunday!), I’m enjoying these moments of stillness before customers begin to storm the store in a frantic search for the perfect gifts and holiday parties consume my social life, something of which I’m far from complaining about anytime soon. I mean, come on; who can resist a good hot spiked apple cider, cookies, and mingling with your bestest of friends? While the sun is still shining bright and the only snow one sees is that in storefront windows, December is always a time to embrace while in the City of Angels.
