Speaking of Style…

December 13, 2011 · 45 comments

You should see what I’ve been rockin’ in honor of the holidays.

Or I guess I should say… what I’ve been coercing my friends to wear with me on the holidays.

Because as you all know, I rarely make a fool out of myself solo.

That’s right. For the tacky Christmas party, we were the Tacky Tinsel Twins. Mad props to Heidi Jo for agreeing to this (yeah, I just said “mad props”).

A pretty easy/inexpensive costume, too. All you need is some garland, present bows, and a little creativity. And a big fat black Santa belt.

And a willing friend to sport a costume which makes you both look slightly obese.

I also recommend making friends with Frank (in his Bieber Santa getup), because he makes for some great photo ops.

But who really needs mistletoe this days?

If you’re lucky, Santa will show up, too.

And remember that Surf n Santa 10 miler Anastasia and I ran two weeks ago?

We may have run in sporting gift sacks. Clearly, everyone around us was wondering if we truly did belong in Corral 1.

No. Shame.

Whatcha think of that red lipstick action?

We made sure to hold hands for the finish, since we didn’t get to do so for the marathon.

Cute gift sacks, right?

And yes, I am filing this post under “fashion.” Because that’s most definitely this is.

Love it! I pretty much love any race that allows me to run in costume. I did the Santa Shuffle as an elf (go check out my pics, they’re pretty rockin’!), the Thanksgiving Day 5k as a Turkey (the only one in costume out of 1200 runners), and plan to do my 1/1 race in Feetie Pajamas, cuz why not?!

I am absolutely in love with this. You are a gorgeous tinsel twinner and I’m obviously getting very jealous of Anastasia. Kindly tell her to watch her back…

What I am most proud of here are your CURLS! Did you do them yourself? I am so sad I can’t gym with you today but I guess I’m sweaty enough just sitting here.

Oh beautiful. Both outfits are just beautiful, and I am especially loving the tinsel! Perfect for a tacky Christmas party.

And yes, I am loving the luscious rouge lips! I am more of a lip gloss kind of gal, but I noticed it on you immediately and thought RAWR! Maybe I have been missing out…

OMG! Your tinsel outfit may be the cutest thing I have ever seen. And so creative!
I would much rather roll up to a Christmas party in that than some ugly sweater. :)

Haha I would be terrified of wearing red lipstick during a run! I know I’d smear it all over my face and who knows where. Your “dress” looks real! As in, it’s supposed to be bought that way.

The tinsel suit is amazing. Did it shed? I am envisioning tinsel hair everywhere.

You are killing it with the fashion…

I tried to wear red lipstick to my company Christmas party on Friday night and just couldn’t pull it off. I felt like a fool. You look adorable in it though…I just have to realize I’m not one of the select few that can pull it off!

Love the dress, but that Santa Claus is less than convincing. Give that guy a lump of coal this year.
