Friday Fancies : Holiday Best + A Game of Tag

Let's rename today's post to "things I want in my dream closet" shall we? 
For party time, or any time. 

Party Perfect

1. Let's start with this fabulous statement necklace via Accessory Mercado. Glitzy without being overdone and just as perfect with jeans and a white t as it is with the pale pink perfection that is this {on sale!} dress. 

2. The ruffled, satin black number up front needs no words. It is incredible in every way, including it's price. By Marchesa, here

3. A pretty tulle skirt is what it will be about for me this holiday season. I can see it with a fluffy, fun knit {via TopShop here} or a bow-tied one, like this by Tory Burch {on sale!}. Black/Pink.
a note on these : I searched everywhere for the pink one above, sadly sold out or only available in the U.K. I may go with the black one which is a perfect midi-length and only $25 at TopShop. 

4. Isn't this pink bowed number the sweetest, softest looking clutch you've ever seen? I would love to add it to my collection. By Valentino, here. {option}

5. And last, but certainly not least, les shoes. I chose 4 that would take me from day to evening seamlessly. 

I was tagged recently by my sweet friend Andrea of Cous Cous and Cork Wedges and since it's been a long while since I played... 

Share 12 random facts about yourself. 
Answer the 12 questions.
Pass it on

Randomness x 12 
1. I love owls. 
2. I didn't start drinking coffee until I was in my late 20's. Now, I couldn't live without it. My only vice.
3. My other vice used to be diet coke but I gave that up. Sadly. 
4. I collect clutches, sunglasses and designer handbags. Not necessarily in that order.
5. I grew up in a predominantly Jewish Orthodox area. I am not Jewish. I know their traditions better than my own and could choose a Gryfe's bagel out of a line up. No question. I also make a mean latke.
6. I'm a cat person. 
7. I loved giving birth. The whole thing. Hospital, pushing, that first glimpse. Being pregnant? Not so much. 
8. I hate flying. I also hate massages. Or anyone touching my back for that matter.
9. If I had to choose a last meal, it would probably be spaghetti and meatballs. My meatballs.
10. I don't trust girls who don't have any long-term friendships. My first and best friend and I have known each other since we were 3 and a half. She converted to Jewish Orthodoxism. See #5. 
11. I am a daddy's girl. Through and through. 
12. I suffered with terrible migraines all through high school. Thankfully, they are all but gone now. I went to an all girls catholic school. Maybe that had something to do with it?

Q + A
1. What are your favourite things about winter?
Just one. BOOTS!

2. What is your favourite winter outfit?
Jeans, down jacket and ugg boots. It is cold in Toronto! 

3. What is your favourite winter food?
Probably a stew of some sort. Crusty bread. 

4. What is your favourite winter drink?
A steaming cup of coffee. I'm over the pumpkin spice latte. 

5. How do you like your make up in the winter?
Less bronzer, more blush. A darker lip more often. 

6. What are you hoping Santa brings you?
Nothing for me. Hoping he brings Ava a roller skating Dora and Boots. 

7. What is your favourite winter scent?
Evergreen. I miss having a real tree. 

8. What is your favourite winter memory?
Does going away to the Caribbean count?

9. What is your dream way to spend a winters day?
Snow falling outside, warm inside. Everyone home in pj's all day. There may be hot chocolate. 

10. What are the first 3 things that remind you of winter?
Starbucks red cups, boots and seeing your breath on a cold day. A sure sign it's here.

11. What is your favourite winter song?
Feliz Navidad! Always puts me in a good mood. 

12. Finish this sentence.....If I could have one Christmas wish it would be....
that Annie's cancer miraculously disappears.

Cate from Wild Ruffle
Celia from Living my High Heeled Life
