I'm currently blogging from my bedroom in my parent's home in NYC; sipping hot cocoa and listening to Celine Dion's Christmas album. It feels so good to be back for the holidays. The house is just as festively decorated as always and the tree just as tall and bright.
Being home for the holidays really allows you to satisfy the best of both worlds: you can lounge around your childhood home freely in plush pajamas, but you can also "dress to the nines" for Christmas and New Year's Eve. As an ode to this welcome blend of casual + couture, I leave you with a glossy and effortlessly chic take on the every day messenger bag:
Meet the Python Shine Messenger, complete with classic turn-lock gold hardware from Mr. Marc Jacobs. (Available here.) This was mentally added to my Lust List the moment I saw it. There are still a few days left before Christmas! According to my 5-year-old nephew, Santa is a real and tangible person. What are the odds that he's up on the blogosphere? Dear Santa... ;o)
Happy holidays everyone!
'Til Next Time,
