i'm telling you what,
talk to women about shoes
ask their opinion
& seriously we have a great blog conversation going on!
ya'll are awesome.
i loved, LOVED all the comments.
i put it out on facebook too ( the metallic vs glitter tory's survey if you missed it)
& totally enjoyed all your enthusiastic responses.
i loved hearing about all the granny's who in their 90's were still rocking
the glittered kicks look!
lesson of the day....
you're never too old for glitter!!
as far as the shoes....well...i'll keep you posted.
i've wanted the metallic forever.
in fact, had promised myself that if i dropped a jean size
after training last year for the half marathon i'd splurge & treat myself.
you can see how far that got!
anyway...while we're on the topic of all things gold & glitter
i thought i'd share some of my gift wrap with you.
years ago i would wait until i'd tucked in each of the girls
& then spend christmas eve in a christmas wrapping frenzy.
shoot me now.
these days, what i try to do, is put everything in boxes as soon as i purchase.
i tell the girls, NO peeking.
their loss if they spoil the surprise.
then i get everything wrapped early.
i love for the outside of the package to be as fun as the gift itself.
well, it makes for a pretty view under the tree anyway.
some of the things i use:
i print small silhouettes of the girls & glitter the edges
vintage christmas cards, i glitter those too
ornaments & glittered snowflakes.
paper shred & wired ribbon.
years ago i printed out little endearments
& cute little sayings on cardstock & re-use those each year.
i also try to collect gift boxes during the year.
pretty much anytime i buy something from anthro i ask for a gift box...shhh....
