I Don’t Care About The Presents

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 6:15 pm

What I wore today to the work Christmas lunch.  I always try to dress nice and simple for this day of the year.  After lunch we do a gift exchange and my sweet coworker got me a little Christmas Tree since we don’t have one at my house, thank you. 🙂

If this is your last stop here before the holidays (and you celebrate it)…. have a Merry Christmas!

In the survey responses someone mentioned I don’t smile enough in blog pictures so I have been working on that.  But truth is, I do smile in pictures when other people around, friends and family photos for example.  But posing solo on my balcony with a tripod it is difficult to project a true smile, difficulty shown below.

Vintage Coat, Consignment from my teens. Thrifted Lace Turtleneck, Olive Silk Skirt and Maroon Gloves. Leopard Purse, Free from Swap. Black Scarf, ?. Winners Faux Suede Boots.

Love Eyeliah

    oooh I just love this fancy holiday ensemble 🙂 great color skirt, and it looks just fabulous with that lacy number!

    smiling in pictures is hard… it’s easy to end up looking forced. my best smile pics come when I’m looking away from the camera.

    I know what you mean. I think it feels unnatural to smile when you are by yourself taking photos on a tripod… it almost feels like I’m deranged, smiling and skipping around when noone is there and taking photos of it all! You’re looking good, lady. Happy holidays to you!

    I’m late, but I hope you had a very Merry Christmas Eyeliah! Hope you’re feeling better also. I love that lace top w/ the green skirt. The band on the skirt makes it so chic. I love it.

    Also Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You is 1 of my all time fave Christmas songs. 😀
