Happy Holidays from Bon Chic Bon Gastronomique!

Bonjour Tinfoil Tiaras readers, I’m Shea from Bon Chic Bon Gastronomique. While Emily is spending some time with her family, she asked me to drop by and talk a little about what I love during the holidays. 

Aside from the cold weather, there’s not much I don’t love about the holiday season.  However one thing at the top of my list is Christmas music. I’m one of those nerds that starts listening to Christmas music in November (early November), and I find it difficult to stop even when Christmas day has passed.

I’m not too picky; I enjoy everything from Mariah Carey to Bing Crosby. However, my all time favorite album is Natalie Cole’s Holly and Ivy. My best friend had it when we were in high school, and I remember listening to it in her car. I ended up getting my own copy, and it’s one I never get tired of.  

What are your favorite Christmas albums?   

Sweater: Loft Outlet; Dress: Jack by BB Dakota; Earrings: gift; Necklace: Towne & Reese; Belt: Loft; Tights: Gap; Shoes: Isaac Mizrahi for Target     

{Emily's note: Shea has the best collection of sweaters- something I should duplicate especially living in Canada! I youtubed Holly and Ivy by Natalie Cole and can easily see how it's one of She's favourite holiday albums-her voice is breathtaking!}


  1. Natalie Cole does have such a beautiful voice, no wonder it's a favorite. What a cute dress and sweater combo too :)

  2. I don't have a favourite Christmas album but I do love two specific songs: Destiny's Child - 8 days of Christmas and Mariah Carey - All I want for Christmas is you. those are the best :)
    btw, love your floral dress and the usage of that golden belt!

  5. Love this dress...especially the way you paired it with darker cute!

  6. Love your look, Shea! It's a great way to transition a "summery" print. I love Christmas music too, but I prefer to wait until after Turkey Day. :)

  7. I love that outfit! Too cute!! I am one of those crazy Christmas music people, too. I started listening to it in November as well! My favorite Christmas song would be hard to name as I just love them all! :) ~Michelle

  8. I love Mariah Carey's Christmas Album. The older one! I LOVE your dress! I think it's so fantastic. The colors in it are beautiful! :D

  9. my favorite Christmas song is so cliche'
    it is Mariah's All I Want For Christmas

  10. Thanks so much Emily for having me guest post!!! I hope you're enjoying the holidays with your family!


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
