The color for December has got to be red. I love red all the time, but especially around the holidays. When I recently went to my class reunion, I wore a red dress and I really stood out in a sea of black. But for those of you, who don't want to stand out, do consider these jaw dropping accessories -
Apple red jade beads - from Dana LeBlanc Designs - a sure way to add pizazz to a humdrum outfit -
I love dresses, but it does seem that no matter what season I buy them in, they're sleeveless. And it's not unusual for restaurants, and catering halls, and houses deep in the country to be a little on the chilly side. So it's practical to have a wrap, and what could be nicer around the holidays than a red shawl from my knitting world -
Love this red velvet bow belt from Melissavelia. So festive and a great way to dress up an outfit. And if red isn't your thing, it comes in five delicious colors.
Who wouldn't feel suddenly cheered by putting on these red wool mohair mittens from Buttermilk Cottage? Fuzzy and warm, they are the ultimate in cozy.
And speaking of warm, these red handmade socks are as pretty as they are soft and gentle. From Striks and Mix, the carefully placed heart makes them utterly unique.
For those of you who aren't afraid to wear a Christmas sweater - this one from Vintage Dream Box is really different. Decorated with snowflakes and dogs, it's sure to draw some comments.
