Christmas Comes Early to the AsianCajuns

First off, thank you, thank you, thank you to the lovely Issa at We Wear Things. My first present of the season is... drum roll please...

Link
(I love Issa's panda drawings on the envelop- too cute! Great things come in panda-covered packages.)

...This gorgeous bubble skirt made by the oh-so-chic Issa. Want one? You can get one here at her lovely etsy shop.


(This photo reminds me of that line in The Philadelphia Story when Dinah [sister to Katherine Hepburn's Tracie] says "It isn't the skirt that goes up in the back, mother. It's me that does." Skirt: Issa, dress [used as shirt and bum cover]: AA, boots: tarjay, earrings: June Shin)

And as a sweet little extra prezi, Issa included this handmade cutey (I'm jealous of his lashes). He's already found a comfortable home on our aluminum tree:



We hope the rest of you are being equally showered with lovely gifts! We apologize if we've been a little slow on the commenting and blogging. We promise once the hectic gift buying/giving, holiday partying and cookie-consuming ebbs, we'll visit all of our wonderful bloggers.

Nice!! (But my word verification is "turdise," which definitely sounds like the opposite of paradise.)

sorry, finally getting around to commenting back- thanks, I was worried the blazer from FXXI would be too casual, but I think it worked out. Also, issa's hand sewn stuff is the best!

Esther said...

This skirt is FABULOUS!!! When high-waisted skirts came around again I didn't think I would get into them, but I am coming around and am even in the process of making myself one! Looks great :)

Am I hallucinating or do I remember one of you guys saying that you loved going to Paris? I'm going to be there soon and was wondering if you had any tips...

And in 2009, I definitely would like to meet you guys sometime!
