I have mad respect for all the East Coast gals that are braving this frigid weather on a daily basis for the sake of outfit photos. If it hadn't been for pesky errands like the post office and the grocery store I would have stayed in my pajamas all day long. As it were, errands had to be run, so I figured I'd squeeze in a few photos as well.

So, here I am in what's left of our almost white Christmas. We were supposed to get lots more, but luckily we were spared. Just a couple of inches that will be washed away by the rain we're suppose to get this weekend. Speaking of this weekend, what is everyone doing for New Year's Eve? I'm sure mine will be pretty low key, although it would be fun to have an excuse to wear a fancy dress.

I love that fur collar and bag. You certainly have a way of making vintage *right there* and fun. It must be so much fun rummaging and finding such treasures! xoxo

Aw the good old Gladstone bag, I've been missing it :)
You look great Jennifer, I love your color palette.
A low key New Year's Eve here too, a very relaxing dinner with good friends!

Finally, someone else who doesn't want snow! Haha... I'm going to be spending New Year's Eve in Montreal at a big electronic music party, it's going to be lots of fun. I plan on wearing a vintage nightgown as costume actually, because it makes me feel so elegant.

I'm not ever really one who pays attention to tights/stockings, but yours amaze me and look so comfortable especially in all this snow that I have over here.

Your bag is glorious. I want to imagine it filled with apothecary bottles and an antique stethoscope.
