First I want to announce the winner of the watch giveaway. After throwing all the names into a hat, the lucky gal is........ (drum roll please).... Sandy of Momisodes. I adore reading her blog. She is sweet and her stories always manage to give me a chuckle or two. Congrat! Please e-mail me your shipping info.
It's been quite chilly here in Socal. I finally rotated all my winter clothes out and stored all my spring-summer pieces for the winter. It is the best to shop from my own closet to keep the wallet happy. I found a black velvet top the other day and thought it would be warm and fuzzy with a cashmere scarf. Velvet always reminds me of soft luxury, holiday, and winter.-BCBG velvet black dress $148 via Nordstrom
