The Nikon takes a decent picture but here is an issue: it reveals just a little too much in those close-up pictures -- even more than the naked eye can see. I wanted a close-up of the watch I'm wearing, but the picture shows that the poor thing is way overdue for a cleaning. I was also hoping that the new camera would make me look taller, younger, and thinner, but it doesn't have that kind of magic. I guess my New Year's resolutions will be (again) to eat more healthfully and exercise, although Ann and Sheila say that the dieting can't start until after our Vegas trip.
Chico's black sequined jacket and black jeans; Prada sunglasses; Gucci watch; White House Black Market purse
Marc Fisher shoes from Macy's;
the black and white snakeskin purse converts to a clutch
Ugly or cute? I love 'em and they're actually comfortable! You can just make out my black lacquered big toe with a white and gold design. Aren't I the audacious one in my old age?!
I'm proud of myself for re-organizing my closet over the last few days, sorting out clothes and accessories for storage or donation, and finding this white-on-white tank with wide stripes of white sequins. For a few minutes it was in the pile to give away, but at the last minute I rescued it.
One of my favorite rings from Harley of Scottsdale
The wider blingy bracelet is from a vendor at Bike Week (motorcycle week in AZ) last year; the black bracelet is from Ann Taylor
Taken just before the rain started. Hardly ever rains here so we enjoy it when it happens. Time to put on a fire and get cozy. The temps are going to dip overnight to 36 degrees!
We're serving king crab legs with lemon butter and a classic Caesar salad
accompanied by slices of crusty sourdough. Black and white plates and black wooden square chargers are from Banana Republic (remember when they used to sell home goods?); napkin rings from Saks; stemware from Pottery Barn; Lunt Eloquence sterling flatware.
And a final sparkle to end the evening.
Happy New Year to everyone! And happy birthday to my Minnesota buddy, Gerri P.!
