A Christmas Without Borders
Friday night was a holiday party with our close friends. Here is my festive and super affordable outfit...
-Green tie neck top - Banana Republic ($13.16)
-Converse One Jeans - Target ($26.24)
-Merona Open Toe Wine Snakeskin pumps - Target ($12.49)
-Feather headband - Made by me (aprox $3 to make)
Everything is a fairly recent purchase. The green top was a super clearance at Banana Republic. So happy I found such a steal!
Oh and fyi...I wore my Bodybugg all day and only took it off for the party.
Last night we went to my friend Jamie's house for our annual holiday party. Every year we have a different theme and this year was A Christmas Without Borders. Houston is a very diverse city and most of my friends and I come from different cultures and backgrounds. We wanted to celebrate with traditional foods we have with our own families, so everyone was required to bring a dish reflecting their culture/background. Since I am half Chinese and half Filipino, but born and raised in the US, I made an Asian fusion dessert... fried wontons filled with chocolate and banana! The night was a blast. We had great food, great friends, a fun white elephant gift exchange, and a few crazy rounds of Catch Phrase. We were out till 1 am and it made hitting the gym at 7 am a killer this morning (but I did make it!)
