I wish I had photos to show you of my Christmas party Saturday but there are none. I had to cancel it. Yeah. The husband and I aren't doing too well financially right now so we had to let it go. Meh, we'll make up for it next year...hopefully. We're so broke right now I've started pimping out my husband- but we're not making much money off of him because he won't do white chicks.
So with life's foot constantly up our pocketbook's arse, we weren't able to go out and splurge on cutesy Holiday outfits for our church's special Holiday service. No biggie. I like a good challenge.
Husband's attire included a thrifted shirt and suspenders and an authentic Ramsay tartan tie handed down from his brother who passed away a few years ago.
Cedar's outfit is all handmedowns from River, glammed up with a $1 eBay tutu and gifted hat.
The last time I wore this vintage Lane Bryant dress was Valentines. I got it from Listia.com; a site that's like eBay, but with points instead of money.
I made this hairpiece last year in about five minutes for a Christmas event I didn't even go to. It's just poinsettias and gold glitter balls on a comb.
River wore a handmedown sweater and... a strange expression.
It's no fun being broke around the holidays, but heck. We're broke all the time! We're used to it! Hee hee! Ok, it's not really funny but I'm not going to cry about it. We'll survive!
So how are things looking for you guys out there?
Livin' large? Barely scraping by? Somewhere in between?
