Christmas Shopping Uniform

Lately, I've been spending entirely too much time shopping for Christmas gifts (just ask my bank account).  This year, I'm giving gifts that have been handmade, either by me or another artisan.  I can't wait to share pictures of what I've been making!  I'm going to add a few to the shop, but not until after the holidays.  I don't want to ruin any surprises!
Also - all this shopping calls for comfortable shoes, a bag big enough to fit all my purchases in, not to mention my knitting for the inevitable coffee break, and pieces that are comfortable without being too sloppy.  Plus, if I get too warm in the store, my sweater totally fits in my tote!

P.S.  Also, I'm debating getting a fringe again...I've been doing this new center part thing, but I don't know.  Any thoughts?  I'd like to avoid the deranged kindergartener look.

P.P.S.  Sorry these pics are a bit blurry!  Katie and I were having a heck of a time with my camera...neither of us is particularly tech-savvy, and I think we were a half step away from just lighting a candle for the camera and annointing it with oil in the hopes it would take pity on us.
