I am actually not that into candy. I far prefer a baked good if I am going for something sweet. All the same, there is so much variety, color and shape in the stuff that it makes for the perfect inspiration.


Tricia's Look:

"Simply Caramel Milky Way. Chadwicks sweater, Steve Madden Jolie Biker boots (my all time favorite pair)!"

Winter's look:

"My candy today is Purple spice drops..i LOVE glittery, sweet, pretty, you just can't go wrong :)"

Jillian's Look:

See's Candy

Chrissy's Look:

I'm thinking Andes mint?? :) dress,top shirt, and glasses are from target & pants were a present.

Kim's Look:
Today I'm a Cherry Cordial! I'm in a red Michael Stars tee, brown Tahari slacks and a brown Banana Republic belt. My Silpada necklace has a bit of a pink tint to reflect the cherry filling!

Casie's look:

When I was little, the only candy that really mattered at Christmas and Easter were the Reese's Peanut Butter whatevers. Oh that peanut buttery chocolate deliciousness, formed into a brown Santa or egg. I think today, I am more of a traditional cup. mmmmm.....

Lisa's look:

Our mom's favorite candies are Fire Ranchers or fire suckers. The sweater represents fire and the candy wrapper.

Black shirt- Target, Jeans- thrifted, Sweater- gift from mom

Jonathan's look:

This is my handsome nephew. Today he is a delicious package of Twizzlers.

Kaitlin's look:

I have to say that I picked out most of this outfit for the niecey. Creating style and flair for the youth of America is a rewarding task. Kaitlin is cotton candy today. She says the boots are the white cone.

Outfit- Target
Boots- thrifted

Strawberry Shortcake
Kim's look:

"I never had any interest in Strawberry Shortcake - perhaps it was because by the time they were introduced, I was already 20! Yikes! But today, after extensive Googling, I went with Blueberry Muffin as my muse. Wish I had blue hair to complete the look. I'm wearing a Ann Booth blouse from Hoity Toity boutique over a Mary Caryl tank, paired with a blue pendant from Silpada. The blouse has a paisley pattern, which I felt was appropriate for an 80's era challenge!!"

Casie's look:

Owing to my French hubby and the general cuteness of her name, I am Crepes Suzette today. Bon Appetit!

The only item on me that is not thrifted or stolen from my sister is the brown undershirt from Target.

Jack's look:

**one of my adorable nephews (the one who had no choice but to participate)

Huckleberry Pie has moderned up. Not a straw hat in sight!

Lisa's look:
"The Peculiar Purple Pie Man from Porcupine Peak. Ra ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta TAH."

All items thrifted or stolen from my sister.

Kaitlin's look:

**My gorgeous niece.

If you can't tell, Kaitlin's shirt is an orange looking at a glass of orange juice and saying, "You would be nothing without me." Haaaaaaaaaa......
Kait's shirt is thrifted. Undershirt is Justice. Necklace made by her mom.

Jillian's look:
*I made Jilli Plum Pudding.
"Strawberry shortcake makes me think bright colors, head to toe, with striped legwear and little skirts. And hats of course. So I went with a striped dress and a symphony of purples. Dress: Harold's, sweater: H&M, shoes: Franco Sarto, jewelry: Stella & Dot."

Scotland makes me think of Scotch eggs, kilts, haggis and Mike Myers. Also not wearing underpants. And also maybe sheep, and little black dogs, and hairy cows....

Lisa's look:

I am visiting my sister in New Hampshire and so it was much easier to get her in the spirit of the game. She is representing Scotland as the birthplace of golf. So green and pretty!

sweater- Haymaker, church rummage sale
sunnies- Goodwill (found new!)

Jillian's look:

"I am Scottish-inspired rather than literal today: plaid tights (Hue) with my Banana skirt in lieu of a kilt, tall boots by Corso Como to represent knee socks, black sweater (August Silk) over it all. My necklace was purchased for me in Edinburgh by my husband as a surprise!"

Kim's look:

She's as purple as a Scottish thistle!

"I'd like to go back to Scotland sometime - it's gorgeous and the people are so nice. Today to celebrate my trip this past September, I'm wearing my cashmere sweater and scarf purchased in Edinburgh (can I pretend the plaid is "Clan Simons"? Paired with an Ann Taylor tank, Mary Caryl skirt, Banana boots and tights, and highlighted with my Highland Cow pin and Seamus the Scottish Border Collie (both purchased in Oban)!"

Casie's look:

I am experiencing my first time traveling and playing the game. The Envelope has been carefully packed, so don't you worry. I thought I was just plain Scotch today but my brother-in-law very helpfully pointed out that today I am really SCOTCH TAPE! Sort of appropriate for this season of wrapping.

jeans- Old Navy by way of Ali
top- Ralph Lauren, New Hampshire thrifting adventure
