Can you believe Christmas is a week away?!  I can NOT!  So many things left on the to-do list… cards, travel arrangements, present shopping, aaahhhh!  
Sorry about the absence of a “From Grandma with Love” post last Friday – I was running “low” on G-ma outfits and was saving a special one for this week.  And then, my MIL dropped off two bags full of amazing outfits yesterday.  HALLELUJAH!

Prada flame clutch, Helmut Lang draped leather jacket, burgundy maxi, Valentino pearl trim suede bootie, baublebar red bracelet, Karen Walker number one sunglasses, LNA Rio tee

Does it look like I have a little junk in the trunk in the 3rd picture?  It’s the skirt I tell ya!  My mom gave me this skirt over 10 years ago.  It cinches and ties in the back to create a bustle effect and gives my derrière a boost.  Isn’t it fun?
Anyhow, I wanted to put together another fun holiday look.  Check out my retro look here and hippie version here!

The Style Rx:  Wear a leather jacket with a maxi skirt and booties for an edgy look.  Add a blingy clutch and you’re ready for the holidays!  :)
