Snow, Snow, and More Snow


I'd like to introduce one of the skirts I made. I based it on this skirt with some intentional and unintentional  alterations. Intentional - high waisted, unintentional - not being able to overlap it. Oh well, you win some you lose some!

One of the many things I hate about snow is that your shoe choices significantly diminish. Everything must be high to keep from soaking your feet, which leaves me with about 3 choices. Annoying.

I'm doing a clopen shift today and tomorrow at work (close tonight till 10:15, open tomorrow at 6:45) and there is a big sale saturday. Hopefully I don't work Sunday so I can get back to more important things, like this blog! Have a good weekend!

skirt / cowl - handmade
tights / shirt - h&m
sweater - winners
vest / necklace - thrifted
shoes - spring
wouldn't this tree be the best if it was decorated??

  5. Well the shoes are absolutely fantastic, so at least one of your 3 choices is a good one! And clopen shifts are the WORST, I vote for staying up all night blogging and just foregoing sleep altogether ;)

  10. These prints are so pretty and delicate. I like the way they look together!

    I completely understand the shoe dilemma, except it's not just in the Winter, I'm just the sort of lame person with a small shoe collection always. :/

    Well! Do your best to make it through the clopen shift! I personally would rather be taking pictures and playing in all that fab snow!
