Last night I attended the House of Gemmes Holiday Soiree.  Appetizers, drinks and shopping for jewelry?  Yeah, that sounds right up my alley.  My original goal was just to purchase gifts for people but I fell in love with a few things for myself.  Yes, even though I’m on a shopping ban for myself I knew that these items wouldn’t have been on my wish list that I gave to other people and I should just get them for myself.

I mean, listen: I have little tiny wrists.  Bracelets do not usually fit me.  But I tried on two stretchy bracelets that fit my wrists PERFECTLY!  Seriously.  I couldn’t go home without them.  Especially since I didn’t have anything black and gold to match my black and gold mini bubble necklace and this one fit the bill.

After my purchase I didn’t want to play the waiting game.  I wanted to wear at least one of my new bracelets ASAP.  So, yes, I planned this outfit around a bracelet.  It happens.  Now, if only I had a fun gold watch….

P.S. It’s not actually cold enough to be bundled up like this, but my brain is in “winter mode” and can’t quite fathom leaving the house in mid-December with my lighter trench coat on.
