Have yourself a very Merry Christmas…

I hope you beautiful, fabulous fashionistas had an awesome Christmas. I’m a sucker for Christmas and it was a great day. The alcohol flowed, much food was eaten and of course gifts exchanged. Very brief Christmas post and pics as my mind is on shopping, I hope you found my sales guide useful! I’ll be posting very soon on what I managed to snag in the sales.

    I love your gifts! Oh, I really wanted TDK on DVD, and the shoes and bags are beyond cute! I got one gift, a trip to Paris/London this spring, so I’d better not complain! Hey, maybe you could tell me some great stores in the London area, btw. Love your blog too!
