merrrrrrrrrry christmas. yup thanksgiving has come and gone and now for me, it's officially the christmas season. and you know what that means...shopping ban is lifted! wahoo. i took full advantage of cyber monday. i got free shipping plus 15% off at crate and barrel, 30% off and free shipping at banana republic and gap, and best of all 25% off and free shipping at my beloved jcrew. i put a solid dent in my shopping. it was delightful. to keep with the christmas spirit, AJD and i decorated our tree tonight. it's legit the sharpest/pointiest tree i've ever touched. it's so painful. but it's got a ghetto booty so i love it.
the tree was so fat that we actually ran out of lights at the bottom. i found some that matched at target. conveniently i've been jonesing to go to target for some new tights. target has these awesome tights by merona in all kinds of colors and patterns that have the greatest sizing ever. i'm talking about m/t aka medium/tall. literally my dream come true size. the tights not only stay up and don't roll, but they're long enough and they last for a long while. i took full advantage of the fact that there were loads of m/t options and picked up navy, brown, heather gray, and black. maybe after christmas i'll load up on patterned tights.
since i was so proud of myself for holding true to my shopping ban, i may have ordered a few things for myself at jcrew. around this time of year i like to get myself a new outfit for christmas eve. i'm not sure if anything i got will make the cut but this gem is at the top of the list:

i personally would not wear an all white outfit but i'm hoping to find some black skinnies or another color pants to pair up with this. i also could opt to wear it with jeans on christmas day since christmas day is usually a tad more casual than christmas eve. i still have some time before the next holiday, so i'm sure i'll make at least one trek to copley place to check out what my fav places have in store instead of just online.
