Could This Be the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie?

I don't know if it's possible to find THE best chocolate chip cookie. I just don't think it's possible. Why? Well, everyone has different preferences. If you told a group of people to imagine the best chocolate chip cookie, I am willing to bet very few imagine the same cookie.

Smoke & Mirrors (Fever London x ModCloth)

Happy New Year! Welcome, 2021! I can't say that I look forward to what you have in store for us but I welcome you, regardless. 

2020 can go burn in a fire but the problems we faced over the last 12 months don't just go away with the year. Unfortunately, the road ahead is long and bumpy and full of sharp turns. We need to keep working together and support one another. Don't get too comfortable. That leads to carelessness.

Face in Time (Emily and Fin)

I have had this dress FOR SO LONG! When I started seeing glimpses of this Emily and Fin Face in Time print, I knew I had to get a dress when available. I also knew that my close friend, Jen, would adore one, too. So I decided to snag two Abigail dresses from Modern Millie back in October - one for me and one for Jen. 

But then realized...oh. I couldn't share it before I gave hers to her!

Marvelously Marigold (Collectif x ModCloth)

I won't lie, it's been TOUGH not spending a ton of money. While I have treated myself to the occasional dress on sale (or with any discount code I can get my grubby hands on), my spending has been greatly limited compared to other years due to STILL being jobless. Especially around this time of year! I've been dying to get festive but alas...nah. 

It would be one thing if I just didn't have the means to get anything new. But it's a whole OTHER thing when not ONE piece of festive clothing fits. YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT. None of my Christmas outfits fit me this year. Not a lot of my wardrobe fits me right now. IT'S FUN TO KEEP DISCOVERING THAT!

Marlene's Fur Coat

I have something so fun to share today! Right in time for chilly December to arrive, I received the kindest (and coziest) gift package from a family member. Earlier in the year, he had helped move his mother to a much more manageable apartment complex and helped her clean out her house. He found LOTS of goodies and, knowing my love for all things vintage, collected a few for me! 

The reality of COVID delayed the actual mailing of said goodies but I didn't mind! Receiving it recently made for an unexpected surprise and it was SO fun to open it up and explore pieces from the past. Among the goodies was this lovely vintage coat with a fur collar.

Buttons & Bows for the Holidays (Voodoo Vixen)

I know. It's November 18th and I'm over here sharing a holiday-themed post. Turkeys haven't been even been cooked and shopping in the wee hours of the morning hasn't even happened. But you know what? Even though I am ALWAYS eager to celebrate Christmastime early, this year just feels like the ONE year I can do it without someone rolling their eyes at me about it. 

Why? If you haven't heard, 2020 has become the year of NO RULES. There is enough weird, difficult, confusing, ridiculous, unbelievable, and downright wacky stuff going on that celebrating the holidays and getting into the cozy Christmas spirit ASAP seems like the only rational solution to all this.
