This weekend my husband took me to the new Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Nutcracker. I love special Christmas dates because it gives me a chance to get all dressed up! I wish there were better photos of our outfits but I didn’t plan for the fact that with the very dark days we’ve been having, the light outside just isn’t enough to get good pictures. So, I apologize for the poor photos but hopefully you can get a sense of the outfits.
I bought this skirt at the beginning of the year for Valentine’s day and love that I can use it for Christmas as well. I LOVE this skirt. It’s bright and full and fabulous! Chicwish is a great online retailer. My favorite items to look at on their site are skirts. They have them in every length and color and periodically run sales that make the prices just right. Shipping usually takes a few weeks but the quality is great and they are worth the wait. Make sure to read the reviews and look at the measurements to make sure you get the right size. I am usually a Medium but I ordered a Large for this skirt. I posted my favorite red skirts last week so that you could take advantage of free shipping before Christmas, but if you’re interested in this skirt and want it before Christmas Chicwish says you can still choose Express Shipping at checkout and get it in time for Christmas as long as you order by December 15!
The hubby’s favorite place to shop is the Van Heusen Outlet store. He loves the fit of their shirts and the great variety of colors. Plus, this man can rock a bow tie and they have so many cute options this season (this one has cute little bulldogs on it!).
