Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 12/16/11
Holiday season is in full swing, which means things have been a teensy bit frantic–running around trying to get everyone’s gifts purchased, wrapped, and distributed; attending holiday parties; wrapping up various work and home projects before traveling; and trying to fight off the sickness that seems to have descended on the city. I’ve got a full schedule of holiday socializing, gift wrapping, and errand running this weekend, but I’m looking forward to taking advantage of the city!
What are you all up to this weekend? Is your holiday season keeping you out of trouble?
