Hey Hey Posse. I know you guys are probably going crazy getting ready for Holiday Season. So instead of giving you a HUGE post to read I thought we could talk about what we are wearing, have worn and will wear for our events and adventures. There are so many happenings over the months on November and December. Be it office, family, friends or religious groups we all will get invited to something (we may ignore it all and recluse ourselves too, no sweat) and then the inevitable perfumista dilemma strikes. What the hell will I wear to fragrance myself for these events?
This year instead of running myself ragged with end of year parties I’ve been handing them out to my Turbo Trivia Drag Queens. They are an amazing crew and I know they all appreciate a few extra gigs around the holiday period. So this year I have only done a few of them, the ones that friends have booked for their office/friends parties.
What Scent Are You Wearing This Holiday Season?
So for the gigs I have been doing it has been Yves Saint Laurent Opium Posie de Chine. It’s a softer, more summer appropriate version of Opium and I like it very much. Same fabulous opening but more low key, so I get the burst but it doesn’t interfere with others.
Jin and my crew seem very disjointed this year. Not sure but people are far more Bah Humbug than usual and we haven’t even put up a tree. The only thing that we have organised is a dinner next week, and that’s because I started making calls. I’m going to wear Lolita Lempicka EdP from my new bottle, I go through quite a lot of this stuff, so yummy. Always wear about 15-20 spritzes of it.
All my shopping was done by September for everyone so no sweat for that, just need to get Jin a little something extra because he’s a bloody saint and I adore him.
Christmas Day will be hot here so I’m opting for Rouge Hermès, though between now and then my mind might change 400 times. This is the current forerunner though.
So this DID end up being a full post. SORRY! Well, not really sorry, you know what I mean?
Whatever you do and whoever it’s with over the holiday period, I wish you a peaceful and safe time.
I’m going to pop over to Surrender To Chance and spoil myself a little. Chat next week.
What will/have/are you wearing for the silly season in 2017?
