White Christmas

And just like that, it’s Christmastime again!

Time to don our gay apparel with merry and bright colours. I’m wearing my red tartan Christmas blazer, red beret (secondhand) and red booties that I have had for over 25 years. The double-breasted jacket looks like wool but is a blend of polyester, rayon and cotton. The plaid has silver threads woven through which give it a sparkly festive look.

Beret: gift via thrifted
Tartan blazer: Marshalls
Non-leather purse: Stars (Whidbey Island)
Booties: Made in Germany

I have a collection of berets, all are secondhand and my newest one is made in France with an Eiffel Tower embroidered on it.

My black top, skirt and tights have small polka dots that look like tiny snowflakes.

Necklace scarf: DIY
Top: ArmedAngels from Drizzle and Shine
Miniskirt: ArmedAngels from Drizzle and Shine
Tights: Organic cotton, made in Italy from Simons

May your days be merry and bright!

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a blessed holiday season!

      Thank you kindly Terri! You are such an encouraging person! On Christmas Eve, snow flurries were floating through the air like a huge snowglobe being gently shaken and by Christmas morning it was a magical sight indeed! We celebrated Christmas with our two sons and three grandchildren. Our daughter called from Seattle, and we are so grateful for telephones! Enjoy the rest of the holidays with your dear family! Christmas is not just a day, it’s a whole season! ❤️🎄❤️🎄❤️

      Thank you Jodie! My collection is growing and here’s my traditional berets (made in UK, France and Canada) priced from $1.50 to $6.99. All are thrifted except for the pale pink one with pearls. This collection does not include my knitted berets and faux fur trimmed berets. I can just see you making a video with yours! That would be fun to watch! 🙂

      Joy to the world!

    Stylish as always! Why aren’t you allowed to wear wool? It doesn’t hurt the animal.
    Merry Christmas! ❤

    I love the red colour for Christmas, Carmen, you look great in it. How much snow you have! Wishing you a merry Christmas, different this year, specially here in the UK. I am looking forward to a quiet, peaceful reflective time at home. Sending Christmas hugs ♥

      Thank you so much Ute! We’ve had three snowfalls so far which I love! It’s the cold I don’t like. 😉 Most of it has melted but there’ll be more snow coming. ❄❄❄❄❄ We’ll be home for the holidays. One of the things we enjoy doing at during the Christmas holidays is taking a walk through our neighbourhood to admire the pretty lights and Christmas decorations. I plan to make a video.

      Frohe Weihnachten!🎄
