Baby it's cold outside...

Apparently I'm in a posting mood today!  We'll just say I'm making up for not posting in the last two weeks.  :)  This will be a fun post to balance out the seriousity (made up word... if you've seen Wicked you'll get it) of my previous post.

It's almost Christmas!!  We've decked our house in Christmas decorations, and our place looks really festive.

 Found these little guys at the Dollar Store.  Aren't they cute?!

Christmas tree with presents for our family.  Oh, and lets not forget the kitties' stocking!

J and I decided that our Christmas present to each other this year would be to see Wicked (a musical), and to go out to a nice dinner.  I was super excited about both, but especially psyched to see Wicked, as it was yesterday.  Well, it was flat out A-MAZING!!!  It was so fun, and magical, and just perfect.  We had a great time, and I'm so glad we decided to go.  What a great Christmas gift!  Since it was on a Thursday night, we couldn't make it to dinner before hand.  So, we're doing the dinner next Saturday.  :)

What's fabulous about nights out like this is that I get to get all dressed up.  And you all know how I love to do that!  It was freezing here, so I opted for a thin black turtle neck (Forever21), some sheer jet-black tights (Target), a bouncy short zebra print skirt (Express), and fun open toe booties/heels (Payless). 
I opted to wear my hair in low bun because I didn't want to take away from the sleekness of the turtleneck.  I popped in a couple of playful pins for some extra flair (Forever21).  I went very simple on the make-up because I didn't have much time.  I already had pencil eye liner on, so I just traced over it with black liquid liner, powdered my face, added some bronzer and blush, and put on my never-been-used Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Lover.  Mmmm Chanel <3
Overall, I liked my look, and I shouldn't have had a problem staying warm.  However, the theatre was FREEZING!

My quick-chic bun.  I tucked that little piece under before we left.


The program.

I must say, the show was EPIC.  Absolutely fantastic.  The clever story, the fantastical costumes, the breathtaking voices!  We were floored.  

On another note, for those of you who have seen Wicked....  We realized yesterday that I have a lot in common with the Glinda character.  Haha!  It's true, I'm peppy, energetic, outgoing, with a side of nutty thrown in.  *Toss, toss, hehehehe*

What are your Christmas plans?  What did you ask Santa for? ;)


  1. I *love* Wicked! I went to go see it a few years ago, and I just wanted to hide out in the theater to see the next showing as well lol. I'm glad you like it. =]

  2. I'm going to see Wicked in Chicago with my family in about a week! Can't wait!

  3. Super Sophisto look for the the-a-tah, miss thang!
