Deep, Cleansing Breaths

OK, it's officially begun. I even saw Christmas trees on the street this morning. So here's something to look forward to during all this holiday madness:

New Year's Eve! Have you made plans yet? And what are you going to wear? Oh, wait, more holiday planning stress. So instead of freaking out, go all zen and meditate while gazing upon the loveliness that is the big ball there on the right. Yes, that's the ball that will drop over Times Square on New Year's Eve, and it's currently hanging out in Macy's Herald Square, right behind the escalators on the first floor. It's very trippy, and honestly, I thought it would be bigger. But it's very Waterford crystal-sparkly, which is so this year, just like...

This pretty Rebecca Beeson dress, also at Macy's (second floor, of course) and also sparkly but not overdone like a big New Year's Eve ball. It's a perfect option for a New Year's Eve party. I'm going to look for some nice shiny things in the district this week, and we'll talk about all things sparkly that can be put on clothing. Because, unfortunately, this season the sequin cannot be ignored.

sorry, the dress is maybe $138? No one can be expected to remember prices at 5:45am, right? Which maybe is the trick to the success of early morning Black Friday madness. The retailers know that math is very hard to do before 6am.
