…copious amounts of Clover egg nog drinking, followed by even more ample amounts of eating, and finished up with an overabundant amount of time sitting on the couch.
Classic movie watching of course!
There are a few movies that I HAVE TO WATCH EVERY DECEMBER OR SOMEONE WILL PAY!!!!
Haha! Just kidding…
Not really. (I'm looking at you Husband.)
One of the aforementioned movies I must watch, is a little classic known as, Meet Me in St. Louis.
Judy Garland was at her loveliest in this film. Due greatly in part to the loving direction of future husband Vincent Minnelli.
|On the set of Meet Me in St. Louis|
And how could she not?! Consider the framing and softness in this iconic shot...
|Judy Garland looking sensational,|
"framed" by Vincent Minnelli's love.
|Love this pic!! Twenty years old, wearing a red velvet|
dress for my sister's wedding, and having the
best time with my other "big sis".
|Awww Magpie, how I adore you?|
One of the best vintage shop's in Portland.
It has the most stunning satin-chevron-OMBRE lining!!
|What is it about vintage labels that sets my heart a-skipping?|
And since it was another cold morning today, I decided to don my chic crimson velvet. I immediately felt like "Esther", glowing glamorously in snowy St. Louis.
|I did NOT want to leave the fire…|
(I also decided to frame myself lovingly with a soft filter! Hahaha!)
|…but since I had to, why not wear red velvet?! Hehe!|
|My Miss L Fire's matched perfect!|
I felt the need for more twirling!! HA!
|How absolutely stunning is Janey in this picture??|

Janey met me while I was in Portland, for some vintage shopping and lunch. It was extremely kind of her to take the time to show me around, and I enjoyed our visit immensely. It was marvelous spending the morning with such a talented and beautiful blogger! (Especially one who shares a love of Disneyland!!!) Thank you Janey!

One movie tradition down, three to go!
Husband just groaned audibly.
