Home For The Holidays
Merry Christmas everyone! We hope you’re all enjoying the day with family and friends. And we want to just take a moment to thank you all for reading our blog and sharing in our lives!
This Christmas we hosted Anthony’s parents at our apartment. Usually holidays are reserved for going to your parents house so the fact that we were able to host and give Anthony’s parents a break means we’re actually grown up! It was so great to have everyone together and it made us realize how precious little moments like these are.
For those of you fortunate enough to be with your family this holiday season, just know that you are lucky and blessed and remember to enjoy every minute of it. To Dustin’s family out in the west coast, we love and miss you dearly. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to everyone!
- Anthony & Dustin

Christmas is a day where, sartorially speaking, you don’t have to try too hard. Grammie doesn’t want to see you in a sheer top and leather drop-crotch trousers anyway. Your clothes should be ready for cookie-eating, whiskey-drinking, and present-opening, aka loose and/or stretchy. We don’t get super fancy in my house for the occasion, and stay specifically dressed down for Christmas morning in particular - mascara, hairbrushes and clothes that are not pajamas are strictly banned - but for Christmas evening, we like to get a little cleaned up. A simple, luxe sweater, pants with tactile interest, and CUTE SOCKS (no shoes allowed) are de rigeur for me. Here’s some ideas to get ya started -
Socks - if you’re not wearing shoes, make your feet look cool in other ways. Also your other socks are probably old and gross. So get new ones, like stripes with a cap toe, something Fairisle-y, or polka dots!
Sweater - My first choice would be something cashmere of course, because I can feel like a rich lady. This Vince sweater will have you looking like a very cute candy cane, and I have something similar to this Velvet one that I basically live in. This tan/gray combo or metallic pullover are a little less expensive, but just as good for lounging around and eating all day.
Pants - Something velvety, like this Free People pair.
Add in hot toddies, gift bows and rosy cheeks wherever possible.

Since Anthony called me out for my paid gift wrapping yesterday, here’s my way cooler etch-a-sketch wrapping I did last night.
