Stayin hot in the cold

This year, I promised myself that I would not resort to wearing my big ugly black parka out the door unless it's snowing, I'm sick, or going to the post office. It is really easy in winter to turn into a complete slob when all you can think about is staying warm. It's also easy to get fat when you wear tights and oversize coats for months on end... I just can't go there this year.

It IS possible to be cute and warm as it turns out; vintage fur really helps out if you wear it. The trick is not to wear a bulky piece and to keep a slim line on bottom; skinny jeans or a mini an tights are a good balance. You can even belt it to create a waistline!

This is what I wore out tonight and I I actually felt cute with all my layers on:

Chelsea Market Pop-Up

In case anyone has been wondering why the shop has been a bit quiet the last week, I have been set up in Chelsea Market at a pop-up holiday fair with Artists and Fleas! I have been so busy there I have had literally no time to update the shop. If you are in NYC for the holidays, I am set up until December 24th. Hope to see you there!

Outfit post- back to 99'

I confess, I still own a skirt from my sophomore year of high school. Mind you, it's a liiiiiittle bit snug but it does still zip up! Twelve years have passed and my style has evolved, but once in a while I still feel the impulse to go full-on rockabilly, victory rolls, red lipstick et all.

Oh, and once in a while, I still feel the impulse to play my guitar. I can't remember any Stray Cat solos, but it still makes me happy to play some chords and sing. I remember thinking my life was impossibly hard at that age; now I'd give anything for that lack of responsibility (and gray hairs, too!)


jacket: vintage
skirt: bought in high school
