12 Days of Christmas: Day 12

Sorry guys, I know I have skipped days 9-11, but the holidays and the weekend got the best of me. Some of my friends from that now live in other states came in to town and while I had the best intentions to post pretty little posts of days 9, 10, and 11, needless to say I just didn't get to it.

So in order to make it up to you I promise to make Day 12 the best day yet!!!! Also it's coming at you a day early on Christmas Eve because who is really going to have time to look at blog posts on Christmas, with all the present opening and eating, and kissing under the mistletoe and what not?

"On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love sent to me, 12 drummers drumming."

At Christmas time, you can't really talk about drummers without mentioning THE drummer: the Little Drummer Boy! Looking through photos of the classic claymation Bass Rankin film, I came to the realization that the Little Drummer Boy had some serious style. Little Drummer Boy a fashion maven? Yes, and let me show you how you can borrow his style! (I write borrow and not steal because it somehow seemed wrong to write the word steal and LDB in the same sentence as he was playing for baby Jesus and all).

1. Drum (or in our case a drum shaped bag)
What's a Little Drummer Boy without a drum? Or a girl without her bag?

Opening Ceremony

2. Fur Vest
Lets be honest. LDB has a seriously awesome (and trendy) fur vest on. You go Little Drummer Boy!

Marni Shearling Vest
Now we know the inspiration behind Rachel Zoe's fur vest. She was taking tips from the little drummer boy! 
Don't tell Rachel but I like this version better.
3. Tunic
Perfect for walking long distances to Bethlehem or eating tons of food at Christmas dinner.

Rick Owens
Ralph Lauren 2011
4. Cute Beanie
Ok, I did have to look at other variations of the LDB besides the 60's tv version and several illustrations do show a little toboggan type hat.

5. Sandals
Rocking the gladiator style sandals since literally bc.

Marios Schwab

Michael Kors

Juicy Couture
6. Boots
In some variations he wears little boots instead of sandals.

Good ol' Uggs

7. Head Scarf
I think the LDB was on to something. He knew the way to cover a bad hair day and still be fashionable.

8. Circlet
To keep that head scarf in place!

Dolce and Gabbana
Valentino Spring 2014
Alexandre Herchcovitch
9. Winter Shorts
LBD wasn't going to let a cold winters night keep him from rocking shorts.

10. Lamb
Why not accessorize with a lamb?

Or at least look like one! Get some shearling action on!

10. Camel
While you are at it, why not throw in a camel as well?

11. Sash
LDB knew the best way to cinch your waist is with a sash!

12. Bangs
Some serious fringe is a must.

I think Kiera must have shown LDB's picture to her hair dresser.

And there you have it! Now you can totally recreate LDB's look or just get some serious style inspiration! 
Hope you guys have a very Merry Christmas!
