Feeling Festive

I LOVE the holidays. And I don’t, not for one second, think that it’s an overstatement to call this the MOST wonderful time of the year. Yes, I believe in magic and I begin to feel it in the air as November draws to a close and December makes its way to the fore. To my thinking, it’s a magic born out of a giant collective sense of benevolence. A spirit of giving that permeates through every fibre of our beings and out into the wide world around us. And of course there are the holiday parties and, therefore, a myriad of good reasons to play dress up. When I’m heading to a soiree, and in the spirit (as I’m wont to be), I reach for a little cocktail number like the one I’m wearing here. The mini-skirted dress is a welcome break from my daily denim ritual and it puts me in the mood to sip a cocktail, jingle a few bells, and sing a song about chestnuts or snow or Santa. So here’s to peace on Earth and goodwill toward men, and women, of all backgrounds, persuasions, religions and cultures.

With love,

Amanda
