Carey Mulligan and her bra

As I admired Carey's photo on the January 2012 cover of W Mag, I was a little envious of the Nina Ricci cotton bra she's wearing. Not only does it look like she's getting pretty good support, the bra is so fashionable and sexy!

I take a lot of time nowadays picking out the perfect dress, heels, or pair of jeans. But I don't spend much time picking out my unmentionables. The $5 for $25 deal at Victoria's Secret always works out well for me. But now that I'm a year older (I just celebrated my bday on the December 15th!), I feel like I need to step it up in the unmentionable department (one of my new year's resolutions). Not necessarily for a special someone, but for the sake of a mature, sexy, quality wardrobe all around. So, here's my wishlist, underwear edition.... basically it's Chantelle's entire Fall/Winter 2011 Collection.

LOVE this!!!

wish list

Yes, I would love a bike. Specifically this one. Event though, I'm not certain that I can actually ride one anymore. (from Public)

Saw this in Georgetown one Saturday... Rag & Bone = amazingness. Need I say more?

A super cute yellow skirt I saw on Rouche! Who knew eco-friendly clothing could be so lovely? And it's only $34!!

$50 gets you all of those colors + an application brush. They're currently out of stock but will hopefully be restocking soon. With this collection of colors you will truly be able to get that "makeup but no makeup" look.

A Tribute to "A Christmas Story"

"Those Ralphie hats are back in style!" 
- my mother

As we were walking around downtown DC today, my mother and I saw at least 10 people with "Ralphie hats" on. And I'm sure only those of you who are true fans of A Christmas Story, got the allusion right away (see below). 

I love these hats and the crazy patterns and bright colors that oftentimes come with them. I wore them back in the 90s as a little kid and I'm not ashamed to say that I sport them now... all the time. Did they actually ever go out of style? If they did, I may have missed the memo.

(P.S. I can't wait to get a cup of hot chocolate, put on my most comfortable pajamas, and sit and watch Ralphie and his debauchery for 24 hours straight when the infamous marathon comes on... just like I do every single year! Happy Holidays!)
