I honestly didn’t believe the reports that it would snow. The forecast disappointed me when no blanket graced the earth in time for Christmas, and I decided I wouldn’t be ‘taken in’ again. Well, guess what — it snowed! Not as much as the other provinces — Vancouver + the island get off easily most of the time,– but it was still nice to finally see the white fluff that is the stuff of my winter dreams.
Dress: Juicy Couture twisted dress in grey
Gloves: Portolano cashmere gloves
Tights: Nicole Miller from Winners
Shoes: Joe Fresh ballet flats
My hair is doing the ‘elf’ thing…
I absolutely go crazy with matching red with grey and black –I find it to be just about the chic-est colour combination I can pull together for a winter look. With the sleekness of black, the cool yet warm-ness of grey and the dashing boldness of crimson red, it’s a classic ‘safe’ but definitely not dull. I also like a pair of complicated lace tights, and I think they add an interesting element to the overall look. Oh, and yes. Yes, I’m wearing ballet flats in the snow and -9° temperature, but I have some wonderful excuses. In the first place, you don’t really expect it to snow on the island, and secondly, ’tisn’t my fault that I can’t find a pair of warm, stylish boots that fit my idea of the perfect pair! And I refuse to buy a pair unless I absolutely want to have it in my closet.
The lady at the post office even commented on this, saying “With all the stuff you buy, you’d think you’d have a pair of boots by now!” Oh, you noticed the excessive amount of packages I get every
weekfew weeks? Oh…
But for the sake of my poor feet, maybe I will have to relax my ‘fashion morals’ as I call them, and snap up a pair of UGGs (the only winter boots that seem to be available around here besides ‘cheapies’… ?!?) until I can find ‘the one‘.
Hope you all have a fabulous evening; stay cozy!
