What to Get...Yourself

This year there will be no gift guides up here at the bird due in equal part to my workload, inability to complete my own shopping and, finally, lack of skills at the powerpoint.

Confession: I don't even have the tree decorated. Yep, big slippin's (not to be confused with big pimpin') going on over here. Tonight I finally turned on the outside lights and am on pins, needles and maniacal laughs waiting for the neighbors to get home and have a look. Think Griswold. If you look out your door and see a glow to the west, THAT'S ME.

In the spirit of the season of exhaustion I think it's time you got yourself something. You deserve it.

L to R: London Sole-Henrietta, Jon Josef Cat Loafer, London Sole-Henrietta Leopard

Blame it on Olivia Palermo or, better yet, Princess Kate. She's allegedly pregnant so no one'll get on her for influencing you to get some London Sole and spill your wallet all over in their stores (or online). As someone who never really viewed themselves as a flats person, I'M WEARING FLATS.

And as for the cats, well, that's pretty much self-explanatory. Meow.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and TREAT YO' SELF. 
From, Carrie and cats.

I should have shopped more for myself. Got all the Christmas shopping done and now Christmas starts on Saturday, goes for 4 or 5 days straight (I can't keep up) and it's looking like I'll be leaving the house in sweats. I might consider that a success. Merry Christmas to all, I'd like a nap please.

Both of you = mind readers. Um, Katie I've been wearing the same pair of sweats and sweatshirt for 3 days. This is how I do it.

I have been wanting to try London Sole for years...Emma Watson wears them alot, haha :p
Those kitty slippers are awesome too! Unfortunately I didn't get myself anything yet, but there is still time to rectify that ;)

I love London soles, pity I don't love the price tag!

Claire Kiefer said...

Wait a minute!

I clicked on the link to the London Sole website (not being a flats person either, I trust your judgment) and my eyes went fuzzy when I saw that these flats--what appear to be plain ballet flats--are $200 and up? What is the secret to their awesomeness??

I think of you every time I see cat apparel.

The cat flats, the cats meow. ;) I want, and I'm so not a cat gal.

I (mostly) have the lights on the tree and that is it! christmas is when now? every year i feel like i have less and less time and more things to do.

but a little gift for yourself is always a good idea. how can you spend over a month shopping and not end up with a few things for your own closet?

You know I want those cat slippers!!

Lena at A Crimson Kiss said...

There is nothing like a great pair of flats–or a gift to yourself. I bought a pair of toile flannel pjs that I love (and have already packed in my suitcase)!

Krystal said...

umm the cat shoes need to be in my posession..

Santina said...

Loafers are the gateway drug to the world of flats. I mean, who doesn't want to wear house shoes outside of the house?!?

Obviously, I am obsessed with the cat loafers. Love, love, love!

Happy holidays, friend!

Stacey said...
