Happy New Year!

Christmas at the Webers

The happiest moments in life for me are undeniably spent with the family. Fortunately, I have two wonderful families – my Bulgarian family and my American family. Every year, I spent either Thanksgiving or Christmas with my American family in Arizona. Here are some of our annual traditions:

1) Mexican food. Mexican food in Georgia is just not as good as in Arizona. I have never had Mexican food in Europe. I wonder how it is.

Image from but mine looked pretty much the same

2) Bowling. The Webers in Arizona are pretty much professionals. I was able to hold my ground for one game – the remaining three games were total embarrassment. And I thought I looked kind of cool bowling but the picture below proves me wrong!

 3) We watched Sherlock Holmes second year in a row. I have to say Robert Downey Jr. is in his element and I loved the second movie as well. Hopefully, part III is out by year end 2012 🙂

 4) In-N-Out Burger. Although not a tradition yet, I think this burger joint should be on our annual holiday agenda!

And here is my Christmas Day outfit:

Hello, leopard!

I was looking online for ideas how to wear animal print and I got a little confused. Generally, they recommend pairing animal prints with minimal jewelry and solid colors (usually black). More fashion forward looks feature pairing with denim, stripes, and and different color animal prints. I felt most comfortable somewhere in the middle. I can’t wait to play more with this skirt from ASOS. How do you style animal prints?

Am I pass the age group for this outfit?

One of my greatest pet peeves is age-inappropriate dressing. With this outfit, I feel like I am on the verge of doing exactly that. Yes, right there in the right sidebar it says it: Fashion Bloggers Over 30.  Of course, I am proud to be in that league otherwise I would not have it there. However, do you think that distressed jeans and slubby sweaters are for girls in their 20’s (excluding celebrities as there are no limitations for them)? What are some of your age-inappropriate pet peeves?

Holiday Party

Last night, my friend Maria had a holiday partaayyy at her lovely home. We had a great time, exchanged some presents and took some awesome pictures. I wore a very old Arden B. (worn here and here) dress which keeps reinventing itself.

Dress – Arden B, top – Guess, Shoes – Jean-Michel Cazabat, Clutch – Cache

After two healthy portions of home-made mash potatoes, creamy mac & cheese, sumptuous meatballs,  delicious devil eggs, I could not button up my black Guess top from above.

My girlfriends rocked the house with BEBE outfits. Maria, I hope you don’t like your blue jumper too much in case it goes missing!

And finally, what the guys wore. Or not! This is what makes secret Santa so much fun!
