We can barely believe that the holiday season is already upon us, and 2016 is nigh!
What a roller coaster it’s been this past year. A lot of ups and some downs — and one can always expect quite of few of those. When things aren’t going that well, though, sometimes the simple act of letting go will allow for unexpected delights. Realities can change so quickly! Case in point: some time back I spotted the suit I’m wearing (above) at Ralph Lauren and was absolutely smitten (yes, my usual Duke of Windsor fantasies!). I simply had to have it, but alas, I did not have the resources to splurge. I was very reluctantly forced to let go of the idea. But as you might have surmised, the story didn’t end there. Some time passed, and this year the self same suit was made available to me at an outrageously discounted and affordable price. Voila, my Windsor wishes were realized! The point is, things don’t always happen on our timeline – delays don’t necessarily mean denials. We can let go a little bit (getting a suit is not a life or death scenario after all, even if one IS a confirmed dandy!). Better opportunities can and often WILL present themselves! Stay open to possibilities.
Today we are sending all of our gorgeous WIJW readers Wonderful Holiday Wishes with lots of love and light!
Be sure to follow me on the James Andrew Instagram feed. I’ll be sharing my musings on some last minute gift ideas from cheap and chic to the higher end of the spectrum!
En route to a fabulous xmas fêtes I’m sporting this ravishing Ralph Lauren Purple Label cashmere/wool tartan suit (no doubt inspired by the Duke of Windsor’s tartan evening suit), Tom Ford white cotton shirt with French cuffs and black silk tie, Seaman Schepps black pearl cuff links, Charvet black silk pocket square, Tom Ford black and saddle leather loafers, Creed Windsor fragrance, and Tom Ford Bronzing Gel for a healthy glow.
