We had an icy and slippery winter, and these boots have fairly slick soles which makes for a deadly combination. I haven’t had the chance to get them fitted with non-slip soles, so they’ve been gathering dust in my closet until recently. Got to haul them out during a momentary melt-off last week and paired them with this beloved dress that my mom made for me years back. read more

Another pre-snow-melt outfit that I just had to sneak in. After all, this is a matchy masterpiece, if the Mayor of Matchy-matchytown does say so herself.

I lusted after this sweater when I first saw it in the fall, passed, and watched it quickly sell out. Months of eBay stalking recently paid off, and now I’ve got at least 10 possible outfits planned for it. read more
