One, I really wasn't thinking when I put this outfit together so it ended up being a little bit over on my weekly Under $40 challenge.
Two, I totally stole the fur over the leather jacket from Jentine at My Edit. Well, the idea anyways, not the actual fur or jacket. (Although that beauty can come live in my closet any day.) I just love that look and since I already had similar items in my closet, it was fun to try it out. I looked up what exactly counts as a "stole" and mine fur isn't quite large enough but I'm not sure if scarf is the correct word either.
It's still blowing like crazy but at least it's not as vicious, I could actually wear a dress today and not flash the entire town. The wind has managed to polish every surface to ice rink slickness though so walking has been a ... challenge. It's mostly a combination of slide, fall and lots and lots of arm windmilling. Super cool looking.
I want to say thank you so much to all of you. I known I've been flaky and not really here the past two weeks and I just appreciated so much that you all still take the time to visit and say hi, it means so much. You guys are just the most awesome set of ladies ever. Thank you so much!
