What She Wore

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.   Some of you  are still in it, like myself, others are back at work.    I had a great time, and am still looking forward to the upcoming New Years bash.  I finally pulled out some dresses I've purchased that have never made it beyond my closet.  When I first bought this green dress from 1 of a Find vintage, Victoria pointed out that she had seen something similar– green silk dresses– in a Gucci, or was it Valentino Ad.  I can't remember.  But as cool as that seemed, I wasn't so sure it would work on me.   Well in fact.. it turns out it was the perfect Christmas dress!





First Party: combo birthday party / holiday party for a friend.   Pulled out the never before worn blue dress bought last year from 1 of a Find Vintage, Brooklyn New York.   That night, after the party, my son Jackson said, "Mommy you look really pretty. I love your dress".

Lovely Yule Tidings From Lady Warfield

The 43rd Family of the Weston Shoot.

So super cool!   We had our family portrait shot by Heather Weston ( a fellow Art Center Alumni ) and parent at the school my boys attend.  She created a personal challenge called 52 Families, where she photographs a different family every week for the year.   Her task;  to go out and get 52 families to participate.   She visits them at their home, and captures the whole family (pets too) interacting.   Well, it starts off with you posing.. but she waits and tries to capture the moment in-between.   The photo above, is not the photo she chose, but I love it too.  There were so many great shots.  See the shirt I made?   And I love the eye contact.

The one she chose on her site, shows us in cozy setting: our bedroom. It's special to me, because when the boys were toddlers, our morning routine centered around the bed.   We basically had breakfast in bed every morning!  That ended when they entered kindergarten.  But we still pile up in bed, and not only when there are nightmares...…
