almost tis the season

It's the most wonderful time of the year.......................

I just love the holidays and probably one of the few people who generally enjoy winter weather. Maybe it's because after Thanksgiving the holidays come which is quickly followed my birthday in mid-January but the snow this weekend totally put me in the holiday spirit. 

But first, we celebrated my college friend's birthday in Willoughby at Billy's Martini Bar for a few cocktails and moved to Willoughby Brewing Company.

Jeweled skulls and signs are a must.

Fur Friday!

After leaving the east side, I wasn't ready to go home and swung by XYZ to meet up with some friends where I was instantly made fun of for my fur coat upon sitting down.

"Uhhhhhhhhh. Ok Real Housewives of Cleveland," said as I grabbed a chair to sit down. (This faux fur jacket was sure the talk of the night, including the boys in my elevator who said, "I've never seen Cleveland girls wear jackets like that. Ummmmm. Ok.)

Saturday consisted of running around to actually start Christmas shopping way on the east side then came back to my apartment to hang out with some fellow residents and Twitter friends who I haven't seen in awhile, where we sipped hot toddies and champagne before I headed out to meet another group of girlfriends at Market Garden then Bar Cento to make plans for NYE, which we still need to nail down but we are getting close. Or, at least I hope so because I have a sparkly gold dress that needs to be worn.

A few things to note:

1) I didn't take any photos
2) Girls are still wearing shirts as dresses with high stiletto boots.

So, I ask you, how on earth do these girls' friends NOT tell them they are wearing shirts as dresses or leggings as pants!? Anddddddd, if you are going to wear a shirt as a dress, you MUST at least wear flats to hide the fact that you are indeed not wearing pants. Am I right???

Here's to a short work week, more holiday parties and drinking and laughing with out-of-town friends and family for the next week.

I own a faux fur. So at least one other CLE girl wears one. Or I'm also a Real Housewife...

I LOVE this time of year as well. And love winter weather. My birthday was in November, right after Thanksgiving and then comes Christmas & snow. So, I totally agree about loving this time of year! :) The fur looked fab! :)

Pssh. I've been wearing my vintage fur coats for years (which includes my time in Cleveland, so you have a friend in me). And I'm OK if anyone wants to poke fun. ANIMAL FUR IS AWESOME (yes, faux too).

PS: I wore a black-and-white zebra coat last weekend. It looks like a giant stuffed animal. I bought it almost 15 years ago at Gadzooks. And I have it in leopard print too. These are two of the WARMEST coats I own. LOVE THEM!

I think if your friends are REALLY your friends they tell you; Case in point...getting dressed for XMas party Thursday eve...put on sweater with leggings. Looks cute. Add high heel boots: Looks like I'm a hooker. Change into skinny jeans and replace boots, ADORABLE. (My friends agreed, thank God!) Had I stuck with the leggings, however, I would have fit in perfectly with the girls I later witnessed on W25th in said outfit or in tank tops and mini skirts, bare legged...with heels...in December! I was appalled.
