December 1: How will you incorporate pink into the season?

December 2: What's the first thing you do to kick off winter?

December 3: What holiday nail trend would you love to try?

December 4: What fashion are you into right now?  Do you prefer old stand-bys, or are there new trends this year that have caught your eye?

December 5: Winter scents!  What EDTs are you wearing?  What candles are you burning?  What other scents say "holiday" to you?

December 6: Ornaments aren't just for the tree!  What hair ornaments are you wearing, or would you like to wear?  And of course what type do you like on the tree?

December 17: Favorite holiday movie (or TV) characters?  It could be a lead, or an obscure character.

December 18: Dish on greeting cards!  The good, the bad, and the boring.  And don't forget the little touches like stamps, stickers, etc.

December 19: Jewels, jewels and more jewels.  Do you want jewelry this year?  What pieces fill you with wonder?  Do you have go-to items that you wear this time of year?

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Loretta55 sorry to hear that!  I hate that so many stores do final sale these days!

 

I miss Lord & Taylor!!!  And those iconic rose guft boxes that they did away with.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Lord & Taylor had some of the best sales @greeneyedgirl107. I stocked up usually January 1 on many items at an unbelievable price. My favorite recollection was when I purchased a leather jacket originally $699.00 for $96.70. I remember the paper percentage off coupons that were passed through the checkout line.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Loretta55 wow!!!  I didn't know that!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 4,: what fashion are you into right now?  Are you into old stand-bys or are there new tends that caught your eye?

 

I love that red is back and loving the dark denim.  Not thrilled with the baggy pants since I am on the petite side. 

 

 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CorgiMommy yes!  I'm petite and too many things are baggy.  I don't find it flattering. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@greeneyedgirl107 yeah baggy isn't so good look for us smaller size women.  It is trend I 

 won't be embracing.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CorgiMommy I feel like I hate so many styles these days!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CorgiMommy I wouldn't mind the baggy pants so much if there were sweaters and tops with a more fitted silloutte, but they are baggy now too.  Crop tops look good with looser pants, but where I live, crop tops are not feasible in the winter!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Mel231 yes, baggy with baggy doesn't work.  And cropped sweaters aren't really my cup of tea.  Maybe if I found high-waisted jeans I really liked.  But still, I find so many crops to be too short or comically short.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Mel231 too cold for where I live too.  Plus if I wore a crop top I would scare small children LOL

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

I agree that baggy pants make me look huge @CorgiMommy @greeneyedgirl107 @bakeamuffin @AznAngelLiz. I have a pear shaped body and I don’t want to emphasize my bottom half.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Loretta55 yes.  I say that all the time to people.  

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

That's my problem with skinny jeans @Loretta55, sometimes they don't look right on me LOL. I think for a pair "baggy"/wide leg jeans to look good, you need to wear a bodysuit with it, like the top needs to be more fitted. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

I learned my lesson years ago @AznAngelLiz, I only purchase petite clothing so I know that it will fit properly. I have not worn a body suit in awhile though.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@AznAngelLiz styles are so hard these days!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 3: What holiday nail trend would you love to try?

 

Would love to try out Gingerbread nails or candy cane nails. Unfortunately, my little baby stubs do not supply enough wiggle room for such nail art but I really love seeing it on all of you in the BIC. ❤️

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@QueenMarceline mine are short, too!  I have thick hair and thin nails.  My cousin is reverse.   She says that's how it goes in our family. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@greeneyedgirl107 I've got thin both 🤣 so unfortunate. But hoping to put more effort into my thinning hair in 2024! Fingers crossed for some good results.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CorgiMommy yes, fingers crossed for you!  ❤️ 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Nails like that would be fabulous @QueenMarceline right? 💚❤️🤍 I am also a member of the short nails club, I feel your pain. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CynthieLu Hahaha ~The Stub Club!~ 🤣💅
