A partridge in a pear tree



My friend Theresa is sort of an amazeballs organization extroadinaire, and thanks to her we now have an annual Kris Kringle/christmas dinner at her house. Last year's outfit. Basically just a lot of engorging yourself on home made food to the point of the skin on your stomach pulling taut like a drum and a slim teenage boy dressing up as a very unconvincing Santa and handing presents out.


Wizard coat/dressing gown: Thrifted
Tiered red dress: Thrifted
Bag: Thrifted
Socks: Dad's
Glitter brogues: Forever 21



I was the laziest little slug the morning of the dinner and my friend Tim spent about 2 hours on the phone convincing me to wake the fuck up and haul ass and get ready. I went from lying on the bed, to having half my body on the floor and my legs on the bed, completely lying on the floor, to "I can't get up, I'm lying under the bed."
"No you're not, I don't believe you."
"Tim trust, I am."
"I bet you one leg and one arm is under the bed."
".......how did you know"
"Shut up AND GET UP YOU FAT COW"
"I'm too hungry."
"I'll buy you food."
"I'm too sleepy."
"I don't care."
"I'm too dirty."
"Take a shower."
"I have nothing to wear."
"Your wardrobe is massive, and you're Queen Fasionista. Get up."



This coat is amazing though. It increases my ego about three thousand percent. I'm surprised that this outfit is even half as festive as it is, because I pulled it together half asleep and grumpier than an injured rhinoceros. I felt like Dumbledore on Christmas Eve.




My secret santa bought me an illustrated biography of The Beatles and a double finger cross ring from Sportsgirl. The degree of hipster in that one present was so high my legs mutated into the wheels of a fixie bike, pet wolves started growling at my feet and triangles appeared on my forehead. But it was a lovely present. Upon seeing my cross ring, "lucky you're Catholic. They bought it because they knew you like The Beatles and you're Catholic." Good one, dad.

i've never understood what a partridge is, so i just looked it up. it says "flesh of either quail or grouse"
?
very hipster/festive outfit, rather appropriate for this time of year i guess.

I really like the photo of the other person taking the photo of santa. You pomomofo, you!

and ZOMG FONDUE I AM SO JEALOUS! slash is that even how fondue is spelled? slash is that even how spelled is spelled? Not in this country, I don't think.

I kinda wish one of my friend's would hold a Christmas party. We could dirnk punch and wear sequins.
It'd be awesome.
