Tis' The Season To Wear Tights

I'd forgotten how Christmas felt. When you're a kid, Christmas always meant new clothes, presents, sweets & meeting relatives. But as we grow older, we lose our kiddie snow globe through which we saw the world. Everything isn't as rosy as it seemed before. People change, we change, nothing lasts..except maybe our eyeballs. I digress.

I used to laugh at people wearing sweaters & sunglasses together. It kind of defeats their purpose, but where I live, it's super cold at sporadic intervals and super hot most of the time. So when it's chilly, with the sun in your face,you have no choice but to wear your geeky sunglasses & tug on your cable knit sweater, hoping you don't go bipolar emulating weather patterns.
The chain I'm wearing was one of those impulse buys from Asos. You know, when you've got money in the bank & you just want to buy stuff online. This was on sale & sold out within hours. Its navel-grazing length aside, the claw detail on it literally drew me in (no pun intended). It does look absurd in a creepy kind of way, but I love claw detailed jewellery. I even bought a claw ring to go with it! I guess my brain decides that claw jewellery is in fact appropriate festive adornment.

Listen to the tunes of alternative Yuletide merriment. Hopefully this playlist will solve the aforementioned problem. Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year, in advance!
