{festive style + the winner is . . .}

The season's trends are a whirlwind of embellishments, including stacks of rings and layers of necklaces, extravagant fabrics and glittering piles of shimmering sequins, and, in keeping with the holiday spirit, will most likely being wearing something spectacular in my hair for New Year's for certain, and perhaps even Christmas eve, or both . . .

Incidentally, a tiara would also be fitting for Chelsea, who, in the middle of all the excitement and some serious competition, has been chosen, {with a little help from a random number generator}, winner and will be the most stylish girl around town with her brand new Hayden-Harnett handbag . . .

{Congratulations, Chelsea!}

Special thanks again to Hayden-Harnett and to everyone who entered -- it's been such fun, and a wonderful way to begin the holiday season.

When I am done with my last two chemos and my hair grows back, I would love to wear a small tinsel headband and a cople of little blossoms in my hair. I think hair gear is fun, fashionable, artistic, and of course....glamorous. Great Post! As usual!

Thanks so much, Tiffany! And you should definitely wear blossoms in your hair :) Wishing you the best of luck with the chemo.

fascinators became a such fashion item along with all retro burlesque stuff. This is so relevant to what's happening in streets.

I really do feel blog fashion pulse stronger than any magazines..

btw, did you want to remove picture borders around the 'Polaroid' images? try adding this before the end of img tag.

Thanks for the tip, Songy! Actually don't mind the borders, but if I tire of them, will definitely try your little snippet of code :)
