elle holiday tales christmas garance dore photos

We have always had quite an unconventional Christmas and that’s just the way I like it!

No snow, no surprise presents (we hit the day after Christmas sales together instead), and lots and lots of potato latkes.

I’m from Los Angeles, where 50°F is considered freezing. New York is usually under mountains of brown, slushy snow around the holidays, so going home feels like a nice little sunshine getaway. Instead of buying gifts in advance, my parents and I really enjoy shopping together. We all pack into the car super early on the 26th with our game faces on. It’s become a tradition! As for food, Christmas means heaps of delicious latkes by my godmother. Anyone that knows me understands my love of carbohydrates :)

This might not sound like Christmas to most people but, for me, it’s just perfect.
