Ice Ice Baby

Wow I feel so discombobulated. I don't even know why. But anyway, yesterday was fun. It was our first snow day (or rather, ice day as there was unfortunately no snow involved). I woke up in the morning a bit early with the intention of straightening my hair, but as I turned the switch on my lamp it didn't turn on. Maybe the bulb was dead or... the power was out! And it was. It was quite exhilarating in a weird way to realize that there was no computers, no internet, no house phone, and first and foremost no lights on a pitch black New England morning at 5:45. So I basically read my book, Brisingr, (I know I'm so cool) by flashlight and later candlelight, and to make a long story short we went to the mall because it had power and was near my dad's work. By the time we came home the power was back on in my neighborhood, but the power company left a message saying that some areas wouldn't get power back for two or three days. Wow, that sucks, considering temperatures dropped to 17 degrees F last night. But seeing all the trees looking like this was fun. But Thursday's outfit:




Forever 21 blazer. Target t-shirt. American Apparel dress. Grandmother's mink collar thing. Doc Marten boots.

I realize that I really need to wear more color. I wear everything black and white all the time, gah. BUT at Zara they had this amazing dress that was kind of a blatant knockoff of this. And it was only $35! But, there were several small issues: on both dresses I tried on the slit was ripped several inches higher than it was supposed to be, the seams were falling apart and it just fit terribly. It was way too tight in the hip and there was all this excess fabric in the stomach area. So I didn't get it.

That outfit looks great!!

That picture is ridiculous. I live in like the only part of Massachusetts that didn't get hit with the ice storm, but people at my work were all coming in and hanging around because there was no power at their houses.

Loving the collar.
Your hair always looks so good these days. Do you straighten it, or is it like that naturally?

Arrg, I know I can't seem to do colour either! All I want is black and white, it's just easier than colour painstakingly coordinating ever shade in an outfit. Just throw on some black and you can't go wrong!
Love the fur collar btw, who knew they were so versitile?

First snow/ice day for us too! Unfortunately I lost power Friday morning and didn't get it back until Sunday night around 8 p.m.!

Love the outfit, that collar is the coolest!
