Happy first day of the world everyone! Since we didn’t dissipate into a cloud of smoke this morning and we’ll continue to have to go to work as usual, I thought I’d introduce you to a little resource we over at City and Burbs have been working on — Wear to Work : The Blogger Collective. We’ve created this Pinterest board and invited other ‘wear to work’ fashion bloggers to pin their ‘wear to work’ outfits. We hope to provide you guys a centralized source of fashion inspiration from real working women. We’re starting off small, but hope to have more bloggers join our efforts as time goes on. So, hop on over to Pinterest and follow our board!
Posting will be a little light over the next couple weeks between holidays and traveling but we’ll be active on our other social media outlets so be sure to follow us. We’ll be back in full force with more inspiration for you on January 7th so until then have a fantastic holiday season and close out 2012 with a bang!

We at City and Burbs do Black Friday a little differently than most. While many are out shopping, we are at mom and dad's, in PJs, watching a super girly movie (this year, it was Vamps), and putting up our family's Christmas tree. Last year was Ombré and I was uncertain that we could top it. But I should know better than to doubt my incredibly artistic sister. This year we did a burgundy and bronze themed tree and it is spectacular! What do you think? Did you put your tree up yet? Share a link to the pictures in the comments!
Between Diana and me, I’m definitely the less coordinated one. While Di was a cheerleader throughout most of our childhood (I wish I had a photo of this handy to show!), I was the studious “gleeber” – our nickname for members of the glee club in high school – which was NOTHING like Glee by the way. In fact, I’m still a member of the women’s choir to this day. Still, I’ve always been riveted by dance and movement. My dad and I attended all of my sister’s competitions, I’ve ALWAYS been captivated by women’s gymnastics in the Olympics, and the past several summers I’ve been addicted to So You Think You Can Dance. Seriously guys, it’s THE BEST competition show on television, period. (How amazing is Eliana this season!?) And Cat Deely helps me convince M to watch it with me occasionally.
So here’s my dilemma. I’ve never danced and my obsession with watching Center Stage every time I find it on TV doesn’t change that. But I think dance is beautiful, especially ballet, and I’ve been thinking about putting some dance art in my house. So my question to you — would that make me a total poser?
Here are some images that I have been looking at that I may want to add to the walls — perhaps a gallery wall so it’s not so blatant. What do you think?

This one perhaps in black and white and a little less exposed:
The Koresh Dance Company, Jenkintown, PA
and my personal favorite because it features Summer Glau (a regular femme fatale in Joss Whedon productions):
