Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 12/10/10
I’m so looking forward to this weekend! I’m attending TWO holiday parties tonight, having fancy cocktails at the Plaza tomorrow afternoon, and Joe and I are hosting a small holiday gathering at our place tomorrow night. I’m also hoping to get some Christmas shopping in there somewhere too. Busy busy busy!
What are you guys up to this weekend?
