Starting the Year Right

My fiancé and I got each other gifts for the New Year. I got him two books from his favorite author, Jeffrey Archer.  He got me two new fashion books: Dreaming of Dior by Charlotte Smith and Nina Garcia's The One Hundred. I finished reading The One Hundred in half a day. This book is a really good tool in helping you edit your wardrobe. I picked out 11 items from Nina's 100 that I currently do not have but need in my closet. Will definitely be on the look out for those essentials. I loved reading Nina's tips and the other good thing about the book is that you can learn a bit of fashion history.

Charles already got me the book, Dreaming of Chanel, for Christmas. To complete my Charlotte Smith set, he got me Dreaming of Dior, which I am now reading. It's nice to begin the year by immersing myself in all these vintage dresses and the wonderful stories of the women who wore them before.

For NYE dinner, we  had smoked salmon with lemon wedges and capers, white bread with the crusts cut off and a bottle of Moët & Chandon to ring in 2012.

Happy New Year, my loves! :)
