The search for the perfect holiday gown can be endless since every designer has shimmering, tantalizing options this time of year. Anthropologie is where I found this one. The embellishments on it even match my tree. I’d call that Christmas magic!
When shopping for such an item, I like to make it a special excursion. I found this dress at Seattle’s University Village. In fact, one of you sent me an Instagram message saying that you saw me spying it.
But I didn’t just dash into the store and jet home. I spent as much time in the Village as I could. I strolled past the shops in the crisp winter air while being warmed inside and out by hot chocolate from Starbucks.
I found some incredible gifts for special people on my Christmas list and, after buying them, ate lunch at Veggie Grill. I delighted in watching toddlers there excitedly ask for fried cauliflower. When I started to leave, one even told me that if I stayed, she would share hers with me.
Could there be any better way to kick off the holiday season?
