Christmas Glamour



  









"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick"

~ Audrey Hepburn ~

I always think of Christmas as a very glamorous time of year and the perfect excuse to follow Audrey's good advice and stick to all of the above - especially on Christmas Day! I grew up in a family where we wore our Sunday best on Christmas day, lunch was always very formal and the table was set with the finest crystal and silver, traditions were followed and you were on your best behaviour! Living by the beach, we are more casual than formal with a coastal mix rather than traditional feel but I still love everyone to dress up, and for the day to be a chic and stylish affair with french champagne, beautifully presented food and an air of grace!

So many people have gotten away from the formality. I love formal affairs too. It's great if you have a large family! There's only two of us, so I don't go through all of that. Love those sparkly flats!
