Oh Happy Day!

I was beyond thrilled to find the holiday issue of Blueprint on the way home from the gym this morning! Forget Halloween- I'm totally ready for Christmas!! Here are some of my fave images and ideas.
Ok, this is just genius. (And gorgeous.) Cynthia Rowley's REVERSIBLE taffeta skirt is so perfect for holiday parties!! (ahem, did I mention it's REVERSIBLE??!) It has such a classic shape and would look insanely perfect with a leopard print clutch! And, as Blueprint kindly pointed out, if you spill an hors d'oeuvre on it, just do a little switch-a-roo in the ladies room ;)
Finally, a great way to use mini-lights indoors without resembling a college dorm room! Blueprint editors took a basic art store canvas and painted it a pale pink, then poked tiny holes through which they placed the tip of the mini-bulbs! (Be sure no cords are in sight.) For complete instructions, check out the November/December issue.
I'm really into the garland and the collection of silhouettes...and the dog. (not so much the dress...)
