snowflakes

I think winter finally arrived this weekend. I actually don't mind a light dusting of snow, so long as it doesn't mess with the roads. I think I would feel cheated not to get just a little bit of snow in wintertime (operative word being "little"). Also makes a wonderfully clean background for slightly garish costumes.

vintage Brooks Brothers coat (similar here)
Kate Hill dress
Brooks Brothers cardigan
Bally bag
Michael Kors watch
Topshop tights (sold out, but similar here and here)
Zara shoes
Essie nail polish in 'Dive Bar'
Lipfusion Infatuation in 'Screen Siren'

You are on a roll with fun tights lately!

Fashion Flirt said...

I love this outfit. So much. Those tights are adorable and fantastic, you'd think they would be too twee, but they aren't at all. This is the PERFECT example of how to mix patterns. It should be too much, but the navy throughout the patterns, and in the cardi, just makes everything sing harmoniously.

Awesome outfit. I love it.
