party time!

Merry Christmas Eve! (for those who celebrate and for those who don't celebrate but are hopefully enjoying a nice, relaxing evening with family and/or friends)

I just finished making Christmas cookies (Grandma's filled cookie recipe) with my mom and sister, while my dad cooks ducks for Christmas Eve dinner. Now I'm getting excited for New Year's Eve. I am very tempted to buy a new party dress for the occasion and have my eye on a few options. Forever 21 has some great options:

A couple more fun and pretty options from Macy's:

And two more from Charlotte Russe:

Pleated Lace Tube Dress and Floral Jacquard Dress

What are you wearing for New Year's Eve? Beyond my high school proms and graduation, I have never really been one to buy a dress for a specific occasion but I'm really in the mood for a fun party dress lately...

i wish i really knew how to use photoshop

Hello again, dear few people who are still reading our blog. It has been quite a while. Finals (and end of semester events and such) consumed our lives. But we are now done and officially second semester seniors in  college! We are home (Anna in warm weather, Sasha in colder weather), well slept and relaxed. Now for catching up on the blog - here's a couple of reasonably old pictures from a moment when I decided to play around with photoshop a bit.

In this photo, I'm wearing the replacement boots ( of my fake suede slouchy boots that were falling apart, to say the least. My mom had been telling me to throw them away for about a year but I loved them and could not find a decent priced replacement for some time.

Promise, more posts soon! Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays:-)
