And It Snowed…

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.

Just Me & My Wolf...My ‘pet’ wolf, London and I…  The snow brings out the kid in me, and of course I need a playmate! 🙂

Snow Fun with LondonCoat:  Soïa & Kyo ‘Lyta’

Dress:  Juicy Couture twisted dress in grey

Gloves:  Portolano cashmere gloves

Tights:  Nicole Miller from Winners

Shoes:  Joe Fresh ballet flats

Red, Grey, Black

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 week few 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‘.

Winter Colours

Hope you all have a fabulous evening; stay cozy!
