Tom and I were supposed to be in Las Vegas last weekend partying with my Australian cousins and Minnesota relatives. Walking pneumonia kept both of us home however. Even though we didn't make it this time, Ann, Sheila and I will be in Vegas for the big bloggers' convention in January, and I have just the perfect outfit -- good for the holidays, our next band gig, and the Vegas strip.
Do you remember Liberace? I feel as if I'm channeling him with this jacket. I'm never sure about this many sequins (although I do love shiny and sparkly), so I'm pairing the jacket with blue jeans and a basic white tank so it's not too over the top.
The jacket is from Chicos as are the necklace and earrings. The ring is from a wonderful new store I discovered this weekend in north Scottsdale. My friend, Susan, is showing some of her fabulous hand-knitted scarves at the store, so she snatched me away from my household drudgery and made me go shopping. If you get the chance, stop in at Global Elements. They have a wonderful eclectic mix of merchandise and the store itself is an architect's dream.
Look! The tree is up and decorated!! More on the tree and the rest of the Christmas decorations next Monday -- or maybe sooner if I get my act together and take some photos. Monday night is book club at my house, so I have some cooking to do before I tackle anything else.
