Keith Richards and Patti Hansen's family portrait is undoubtedly my favorite

Most people would agree that the whole Black Friday and post-Christmas shopping thing has gotten out of hand.  When I saw the Chevrolet commercial with real people (not actors) witnessing the onslaught of Black Friday crowds through the automatic sliding doors of some unnamed retailer, I couldn't agree more with the woman who covered her mouth and uttered "Oh my God," in disbelief.

Rather than post the usual photos of my current objects of desire like Chanel ballet flats I'm salivating over, or a casual Burberry jacket for this el nino weather, I decided to post inspiring photos of families, which is really what the holiday season is about.

Children's wear by Marie-Chantal

Love love love the burgundy and mustard colors

Back in the '90s when I was in high school and my family and I lived in Little Rock, Arkansas, I remember reading the ginormous W Magazine on my floral canopy bed and coming across a small photo of the Miller sisters sitting front row at some fashion show and becoming immediately captivated by them.  There's always something alluring about a trio or more of related, beautiful, and glamorous women - they are something of a unicorn, think the Clarin-Courtin sisters/cousins or the Traina sisters.

Since giving birth to a baby girl in early November, I was excited to learn about Marie-Chantal Claire's line of children's wear and adore her company's ethereal ad campaign (this fairisle cardi seen here is too adorable).  A quick glimpse of her Instagram photos also reveals photos of her lovely family, her fabulous life, and style.
