I really love this video and song. I think about it every winter when the days get short and cold and I get a little meaner. So this year I'm going to try and keep a warm heart even when I have cold hands!
P.S. I know that both the song and video are kinda sad, but aren't those little depressed stick figures so cute. I think I fell in love with the video the same time I fell in love with the little depressed rock thing from those Zoloft ads. (My mother even got me a tape dispenser with his image on it for Christmas)

The image is what I made for an ornament swap. I'm rather happy with how they turned out!

If you remember back to my very first "Fashion Show at Lunch" Post about the women of Mad Men you might be in agreement that this red beauty looks like it could have walked right out of Joan Harris nee Holloway's closet!
The same could be said for this black dress. I am so glad that this part of 60's fashion has come back with such a vengeance.
If you are really bold and have a really awesome New Years Eve party (read not forgetting to watch the ball drop over at your parents house because you are watching Psych on DVD) to attend this might just be the dress for you. Maybe it is all my years spent around a dance studio, but in my heart of hearts I love me some glittery sequins!
Back to a mid century look, this dress could be dressed up for a party with big chunky gold jewelry or with a cardigan some tights and ballet flats be great for church. Yes this is how I justify things, do not try to get me to stop now.
I'm going to go ahead and address these together, they really are the same dress with just slightly different looks. Great if you have a fancier company Christmas party or if like me you have any kind of association banquets coming up.
A little bit of a 1970's look eh? I bet my mother would love this dress, she has such a soft spot for the style of her youth!
disclosure, I would never where this dress. But if you go for strapless, ruffly, big bow, shiny-shiny frocks this might be the one for you!
