Christmas Present

So, either the boyfriend was bluffing when he said that my choices for a Christmas present were not good enough OR he gave up on looking for something different and decided to get me what I had picked.
So yay!
Oh, and Happy New Year!!!!

Traducción
Una de dos: o mi novio estaba mintiendo cuando dijo que mi elección para mi regalo de Navidad no era lo sufiecientemente buena O se dio por vencido al buscar algo diferente, por lo cual decidió comprarme lo que yo habia escogido.
Asi que, yay!
Ah, y Feliz Año Nuevo!!!!

Pre-Fall(ing)

I'm sure that everyone out there who is interested in fashion and wants to be or is a part of it, takes a great amount of pleasure whenever it's runway season ... including the pre's.
Hey, it's like a forecast/preview of what we will see in a couple of months on the FW11 runways (which kicks off on Feb. 10th with NYFW, fyi).

Sometimes, these pre collections make it or break it for some of us ... you know what I mean.
And unfortunately, there is ONE designer though that totally broke it for me.

I've always been a fan of Diane von Furstenberg and actually saved up $500+ USD to buy a DVF maxi dress a couple of seasons ago (and then found it like at 70% off, yay for extra money!), but this pre-fall collection scared me.

I know the 70s are making a huge comeback, and I'm okay with it.
(Personally, I still prefer the 50s+80s combo I've been falling in love with for some months now.)
But I digress. I understand that DVF's inspiration was, as creative director Yvan Mispelaere says, "the glorious American sportswear of the 1970's ... Diane's focus, then as now, is on the working girl, and easy clothes to go to work with."
However, I still can't help but just seeing Daphne from Scooby Doo popping up in every single outfit of the pre-fall collection.
I'm afraid, because while MAYBE I would wear SOME pieces of the collection ... I would see this as collection as a bit costumey and tired.
Pfff..

And ... I'm too lazy to translate my rant. Sorry!

Long Overdue

The boyfriend has been racking his brain trying to figure out what to get me for Christmas ... unfortunately, my suggestion of getting me a compilation of Jane Austen books and some Beatles and The Who CDs was deemed as a not-good-enough present.
Oh well, let's see what he comes up with ... at least I was able to convince him to accompany me to see The Nutcracker -- the Ballet de Monterrey is very, very good; and I'm happy to say, he loved it!
He asked me to tell him when the next ballet will be, so that we can go. Yay!!

Traducción:

El novio ha estado intentando averiguar que regalarme para Navidad ... desafortunadamente, mi sugerencia de regalarme una compilación de libros de Jane Austen y CDs de los Beatles y The Who fue vista como no-lo-suficientemente-buena-para-ser-un-regalo.
Bueno, pues ya veremos que se le ocurre ... al menos fui capaz de convencerlo de ir conmigo a ver El Cascanueces -- el Ballet de Monterrey es muy, muy bueno; y me alegra decirles que le encantó!
Me pidió que le dijera cuando haya otro ballet para poder ir a verlo. Yay!!
