Well, folks, another year has come and gone on this here blog! I am putting Clarabelle on a break until the New Year. It has been a great year, indeed! This blog has grown SO much in 2011, I am so proud and grateful to all my readers.
To close out the year, I wanted to quickly review all the outfits I wore in 2011. This post is proof that, when I do go shopping, I shop almost exclusively at H&M — and I really like repeating outfits, haha.
This year, I had a $20 budget for my holiday dress.
I decided on the same idea for the holidays as I had during wedding season. I plan to wear my holiday dress to every holiday function I have. Luckily, I found this white number at H&M for $25 (only five bucks over my budget!). So I got it — it’s perfect for every holiday function and I haven’t looked back.
I am also kicking around the idea of wearing this number to my rehearsal dinner. But that might be taking my frugality a bit too far.
Dress: H&M | Tights: Nine West | Shoes: Steve Madden | Belt: Borrowed from a friend | Necklace: Macy’s | Other Necklace and earrings: Delia Langan
Thank you all for another

What about you, lovelies?
Can you believe it is already December 1? I cannot believe we are only weeks away from Christmas. It is so exciting! Here are some funny, sexy and glamorous shots to get you into the holiday mood.
Every Christmas Eve, the Brown Family goes to church. It’s only fittin’ that we should spend the entire second half of Christmas Eve celebrating Jesus’ birth in church. We’ve done it that way for years.
The question always remains: “What do we where there?”
Finding something age appropriate, fashionable, and conservative is always a challenge for any fashionista going to a church service.
Here’s some rules I swear by when finding proper church attire:
- No jeans. Even if everyone is wearing jeans; it just seems weird to wear jeans in a church.
- Avoid strapless tops or spaghetti strap tops, if possible. When in doubt, where that trusty cardigan.
- Use the fingertip rule with skirts and dresses. Skirts should fall at the fingertip or below. If your skirt is too short, wear tights or stockings.
Here’s what me and my baby sister, J wore to Christmas Mass.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas! I missed all of you on my blog vacation and can’t wait to visit your blogs today!
