Favorite Things... Day 2

Yesterday, Elizabeth and I spent the day in Chicago with our friends!

We wandered up and down the "Magnificent Mile" (Michigan Avenue), had lunch at the Grand Lux Cafe.  The apple pie?  DEELISH!

I love the city, and the Christmas lights were beautiful!

So, my favorite thing for day 2?  Good times with friends, and one on one time with Elizabeth.

But I cannot give you that, can I?  Day 2 "Favorite thing" is Fair Trade.
We have a wonderful Fair Trade store in our little town, One World Handcrafts. I know I've mentioned it before.  This month while purchasing a few Christmas gifts at One World, I bought one for myself.
The hat and "glitten" set you see me wearing in above photos.  Fashion is fairly important to me.  I usually rank it higher than comfort, and sometimes function. Knowing I was going to spend the majority of my day on my feet and in the cold, I still wanted to look good.  We were in Chicago after all!  Not one for wearing hats, I decided that I wanted to be comfortable in the windy city.  Not only did the hat and "glittens" keep me warm, they were cute too!

For you, my lovelies, I have one hat and mitten set! Made in Nepal, by a fairly paid individual.
The hat is predominately black with earth tone polka dots, and the mittens are the same colors, but each side of the mittens is a different color.  Totally Cute! 

If you would like to win the Fabulous hat and mitten set, please leave a comment putting these three things in order of importance to you:




Oh, and for those of you who are wondering, Yes, I wore heels.  Boots with heels. And yes, today my feet hurt.  But, it was worth it.

well let me see i wear scrubs most of the week 5/7 days so comfort is ver important, then comes function (i have to have pockets!), then fashion. i would really like to change that order but i have an antisocial husband so we do not go out much and when we do...i have nothing to wear but comfy clothes (jeans t-shirt type)! maybe someday when i do not have to worry about what to do with the kids or get a management job that order will change!

that's easy, Fashion, Function, Comfort, that being said I am so glad you cannot see me now because I am lounging in yoga pants, and since I don't work this week, will probably be doing so into the new year!

so glad you had a great time!

Comfort, function, and THEN fashion. Of course, I am 50!

Your old friend,

Fuction, comfort, fashion. (However, I strive to have my functional and comfortable things be fashionable.)

However, I am currently stuck wearing nothing but yoga pants (lacking fashion) for a few more weeks. Ugh.
