Christmas shopping

Sunday kicked off our Christmas shopping. Normally when I do serious shopping, I like to carry a crossbody bag to free up my hands...but when I was switching out purses, I was very tempted to go with my recent birthday present. So I went from this...
Black patent purse - Present from Child, great purse for traveling while in Boston for work
To this...
Patent leather purple clutch - Burberry Prorsum (Birthday gift from Husband)
Ahhhh, how gorgeous is that purse? And how lucky am I? I saw this purse while shopping with Mom, who rolled her eyes at me and my taste. When I told Husband later that night about this beautiful piece, he said, "The one with buckles?! The purple one?! Why didn't you get it?!" Ah, love.

Anyhoodle, this turned out to be a great shopping bag. It was very light, and still hands-free because it comes with a shoulder strap.
Sweater dress - American Eagle (another present from Husband), Cheetah belt - dEliA*s, Pink Hello Kitty watch - Sanrio, Leggings - Bebe, Boots - Naughty Monkey
I also loved this sweater dress (is this a dress? I guess it's just a long sweater) and its colors.
Husband has good taste.
We decided on some presents for people, but we still have some shopping to do online. Once we get that done, I'll feel a lot better. I prefer buying presents earlier because I hate the stress of Christmas coming, so best to get it done and out of the way. I also need to tackle holiday cards!
How's your holiday shopping going?
