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.

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

Coat:  Soïa & Kyo ‘Lyta’

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 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‘.

Hope you all have a fabulous evening; stay cozy!
