This is the time of year when there’s some reflective looking back as New Year’s Eve approaches. I definitely experienced a wave of that earlier this month as it’s the two year anniversary of losing one of my dearest friends. But every year I also feel this kind of giddy anticipation, something takes hold of me and I want to buy sparkly dresses, jet off someplace far away and live in the champagne party now.

We could talk about Spring 14’s subdued palette of black and white and neutrals, but I’m feeling more excited about new things like Natalie Alaverdian’s celebration of roosters for her line A.W.A.K.E. I can’t help but admire a little strut, especially when the coming spring’s fashion music is so toned down.

And then there was Libertine, magically thinking out loud for me with their “amulets protecting from negativity”.

I’m ready for a little fashion fun, how about you?

Sorry to hear about your friend. I like the pretty patterns for this post, although I’m more of a basics kind of girl.

Sorry for the loss of your friend. It sure can be a mixture of emotions at this time of year. I would love a pair of rooster pants like those. They really make me smile.

My heart goes out to you – it is always rough to handle the loss of a loved one.
But yes, we must go on and celebrate life as well and these prints are simply lovely! I love the roosters!

This time of year is always both sad and happy for me. Yes, it’s that reflective mood, pondering the bad and good that has happened over the last year, remembering your loved ones who are no longer with you, but also feeling enthusiastic about the merry part of the holidays and getting together with your family.
PS: I won’t say no to having a little fun with fashion. 🙂

You are right Natalie Alaverdian’s rooster pants are great and wonderful way to do the black and white trend.

That last dress is pure perfection.

We are all tired at the end of the year and if you have a sad anniversary coming up, then you probably need some quality rest.

I love the one with the dots and stripes. So pretty. So sorry about your friend Mary Jo. I know it’s hard each year. Beautiful post doll.

These are very stylish dresses. Makes me want to buy one for this Holiday Festive season.
