Pomp And Circumstance

Christmas Wrap-Up 2012

Posted in Decor Files by Miss Circumstance on January 4, 2013

Santa and my family hooked me up this year in a big way. Here is a taste of some of the bomb presents I got this past Christmas-



I want to get something engraved on the Madewell ID bracelet, and I think I’ve settled on “Toots” on the front and “let me see that tootsie roll” on the back. What?

There is some depth to that I promise. Not a deep water pool depth, but like a kiddie pool amount of depth. It has some family meaning. My family is just like Socrates family.


Miss Circumstance Birthday Wish List

Posted in Decor Files, Fashion Files by Miss Circumstance on October 15, 2012

My birthday is coming up, and my family has been asking me to put together a wish list. The weird thing is that I drew a complete blank. Like all the sudden I wanted nothing. Which we know is complete malarkey. I started remembering some stuff though, and though I am not asking for the Crown Jewels like Miss Pomp, there is a range of goodness from little to extravagant-




x2 for bedside tables. Both are from Target but I haven’t seen either in person ( the right one I will see on the 21st when Nate drops it in Target. Holla.)

My mom also got me the jacket I had been stalking for many months at Jcrew (she is really bad at waiting to give gifts. It’s been bought and worn several times already. My birthday is still two weeks away). It will look so pretty with the skirt I just bought myself ( I too am bad at waiting to give gifts. To myself.)


The Christmas Wish List He Doesn’t Know He Has…

It’s no secret Miss Pomp and I have a thang’ for Jcrew, and I especially love their kids clothes. These are the clothes I added to Jaden’s (my 8 year olds) Christmas Wish List. He has no idea. I threw in the Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon cause I guess it would be nice to include something he actually wants. He wants all these clothes too…he just doesn’t know it.

Crew’d and Wested

I get a bombardment of catalogs, most which end up in the recycle bin, but there are a couple that I thumb through every time they come. One is J Crew, and one is West Elm.

Here are some that jumped out at me from the J Crew January 2011 catalog

I love that outfit with the shiny buff pink puffy jacket, and that is something I would have walked right past in the store and probably actually thought was ugly. But I love it here. That is why I need catalog visuals when it comes to putting together clothes.

Annnnnd, The West Elm catalog had a ton of super great new bath products. Hello striped shower curtain. Hello awesomely zig-zagged bath mat. Oh, is that a striped hand towel I see?? What?? Enough with the stripes? Nev-a I say!
