Winter Mode and Christmas Crafts

The last few days have been cold and blustery. Dresses have not been an option for school, so I have slipped into "winter mode" in terms of my clothing choices. This is a typical outfit, not actually vintage but rather vintage inspired:

Top: Elsa's (She owned a great little store in my home town but it retired now)

Wool Pants: Winners

Flower: Made by Me

Lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC (I love this colour!)

It is getting closer and closer to Christmas everyday! I am getting quite excited and have already started making some new decorations. I have a lot more on my "to-make" list but that requires a trip to the craft store. I am still in the process of making some of these, so this is just a little sneak peak. Martha Stewart's website really does have the best Christmas craft ideas. Most of the above crafts were based on tutorials from there.

On the sidebar of my blog, you may notice I have started a poll. I would love if you could take a second and vote on what type of posts you like to see here. Just leave me a comment if you have any other suggestions. I write this blog because I enjoy doing so, but it is nice to know what people want to see more of :)

That's All.

  1. Love the outfit - it looks perfectly vintage enough to me :) And you made the flower? You ARE a clever bean! :)

  2. The red of that flower looks lovely with the grey and black outfit.

    You look great!

  3. You look great! I've been perusing a couple of books of collections of pages from Sears Catalogs from the 40s and 50s. If I had an office job, I'd dress in those clothes every day!
