This (on sale!) is what I want to wear for New Year’s Eve:
Mind you, I haven’t been out on NYE for several years now. Mr. Magpie and I have long preferred a quiet night in, eating fancy food and fine champagne for two — lobster, King Crab legs, spiced shrimp, caviar — but always decked out in our finest. Ever year, I try to convince him to watch Casablanca, which my parents have always watched on NYE, and every year, he says no but ultimately agrees to watching another romantic comedy, often When Harry Met Sally, my favorite movie ever. (It has a great NYE scene in it.)
This year, I am contemplating buying Mr. Magpie this sweater and having him sport it with his tuxedo slippers. Incidentally, tuxedo slippers make a great gift for the man who has everything. Mr. Magpie always gets compliments on his. The Jolly Rogers are a classic, but I got him a limited edition set with a super crazy cool crest on it that involves a thunderbolt.
