now that the temperature in long beach has somewhat dropped, reminiscent of the season it should be, i can't help but think about holiday parties. i love getting dressed up this time of year. break out the tights, break out the boots, break out the sparkle. i found this dress today on ideeli and kind of melted. i had a credit with them so i picked it up for $3.95 ($49) but regularly $140. can't beat that with a bat! now i need a party to go to. with all the leftover wine and beer from the wedding, i think a house party is in order.
