I know it's a little late for the snow, but guess who never seems to have the proper foot attire on hand when the snowflakes start to fall? Yeah, this chick.

And then we got a good 3 foot of SURPRISE snow.

Snow boots. They finally meet the snow. Finally

We will pretend that I did not wait until it was halfway melted away to take pictures. We will also pretend it's not a silly picture of me PRETENDING to be stuck in the snow.

A little vintage maybe?

Ok, only the hat. My grandmothers, and I have been struggling to find something appropriately classy and brown to wear with it. Clearly I have too much black clothing, in danger of becoming Abby. Not that that's a bad thing mind you. So the rest is a dress I made, cuz' dammit why not. Also wearing a pair of her earrings which may or may not be vintage.

Took advantage of The Aunt's classy dressing table and accessories. Love the cut glass perfume bottle. We will pretend it has something in it other than air. As you can see, there's some nice leg there. Wearing those sassy french heel back seam silk stockings that someone got me. The shoes themselves were another thrift store find. For once a pair that fits perfectly and isn't in deplorable condition! Helps that they're completely lace up, are incredibly comfortable, and are quite likely to hit you on the fingers with a ruler if you don't stop passing notes in class. Seriously.

Now, where did that set of hat pins go?

Vintage Barbie wishes she could be out from under the glass with me. Thrifted silk top, and the crop jeans I can still just barely fit. I swear, they used to be black. Really.

Christian Siriano strappy sandal. I'm in love with the zipper here. And those heels? (3.5') Feels like I'm walking on pyramids.

Yes, that shirt DOES say "I feel a sin coming on". A terribly fitting Christmas gift from Miss Danitra. Well played madam, well played.

Lace-up Airwalk kicks that take forever to lace up even if they have an easy access zip in the back. You gotta get all those laces flat and pretty and just right before you can even consider being seen.

(Which is why I'm still lounging in bed)

Yes, yes, I know. I've used this dress before. Don't care. The shoes are what's important here.

Very important shoes.

Alice + Olivia 4.5" pumps. Stone-washed denim ankle wrap with crazy buckles. The zip has a wacky little metal dangle.
