Even though Christmas has come and gone I still feel festive this week and my wardrobe has been my mimicking my emotions. I’m incredibly sad to see the holiday pass (even if I don’t celebrate it) but I’ll be keeping a bit of Christmas with me in my outfits.
Aside from mourning the passing of Christmas 2011, I’ve been enjoying the snow and end of season sales. I know that I keep going on and on about my socks but I cannot talk them up enough. Sockdreams
if having a 20% off sale on their entire stock. I seriously suggest taking advantage of this sale (code: Goodbye2011
) while its still on!

Ok, I’ve done this before and I swore up and down that it would be the very last but I swear this is the final change! I’ve been thinking for awhile that Garters & Stockings wasn’t really a great representation of what my blog was about. It would be perfect if this was a lingerie blog but its about fashion and my love for lipstick. The name really appeals to me cause, well, I love red lipstick and I have some big hips! I have a fancy new domain so if you’re still coming from gartersandstockings.blogspot.com you should be redirected. I’ll be tweaking and changing a few things around (especially the header!) in the next few days so bear with me!
Christmas isn’t a big deal at my house and that is solely do to the fact that my parents don’t take the holiday. I’ve never actually had a Christmas tree or woken up thinking Santa was going to spoil me with presents. This time of year is always extremely gloomy for me but my mother was adamant on getting all of us together for a “family dinner”. I took it upon myself to get a bit dressed up and enjoy what I can of this day. I’m always in better spirits when I know mashed potatoes, gravy and turkey are being served for dinner! Anywho, I snapped a few really cheesy shots of me playing with my ponytail and I thought I’d quickly make a post to wish everyone a very, merry Christmas! I hope everyone is having an amazing day with their loved ones!
I’m trying to not let SAD kick my butt but this week has been so slow, boring and dull. I’ve spent a lot of my time watching Christmas movies, sleeping and cleaning my room. I haven’t properly put an outfit together in God knows how long so having an opportunity to get a little creative was pretty exciting for me. All I had on my agenda was a trip to the post office so I put on my best casual outfit.
very blurry detail shots. my mom was in charge of taking these, sorry!
I feel like all I want to wear these days are my knee high socks. I am probably the biggest baby when it comes to cold feet. The thought of having to endure chilled + potentially wet feet gives me the heebie jeebies so keeping my feet toasty warm is at the top of my agenda. Sockdreams
makes the most perfect fat calf friendly knee highs ever and I highly suggest them for anyone looking to add a few pairs to their sock door.

I haven’t properly updated this thing in ages and that has a lot to do with my lack of outfit posts. I’ve been so bad about timing things lately!
A few weeks ago Maxey Day came back down to Toronto for a short visit. I had been planning a big, fancy sushi filled dinner for the ladies who attended Big, Fat Toronto. Seeing Maxey was so lovely but way too short! We dinned in style and spend the entire night chatting away. It felt so nice to sit down with some of the sweetest, funniest ladies I know!
If you haven’t already guessed, my blog post name is dedicated to the late, great Johnny Cash. I found an Etsy seller
who makes just about the coolest silhouette necklaces of some of my favourite icons. I will defintely be heading back to their shop for Morrissey and Jimi Hendrix! I wanted to play up my longline bra and wear my brand new glasses from Clearly Contacts (which I’m still totally unsure about!). I certainly felt a little Johnny Cash inspired that night!
