Yup, bare feet in my shoes the week before Christmas... It was a little chilly but I'm glad I could do it because I wanted to keep the details of the outfit simpler, so as not to compete with the hat and scarf... however part of me is longing for a big snowfall. Which is weird because in the winter I plow snow and an epic snowfall will only result in too little sleep and too much Sugar-free Redbull, there really is no time for me to enjoy the picturesque beauty of fresh snow. Maybe I'm jealous because my brother in Holland posted pictures on Facebook of his street covered in snow and it's just not right. I mean, a couple of inches of snow somewhere in Holland puts a city at a standstill and here we wait with our plows, shovels and salters, ready for action and there's been nothing more than a dusting. What's up with that?
Whatever... either way, snow or no snow, my hat is pretty fabulous, no? Thrifted for $7...
And the infinity scarf is another piece from my fourth year collection from years ago. It was supposed to be this wrap thingy that never quite worked out like it was supposed to but wrapped twice around my neck, it sure makes a cosy scarf. The thin knit part of it was made from yarn that was sponsored by Fable knits and the rough knit is actually hand spun alpaca from a local Ontario farm. When I got the order in the mail, they sent a picture of the alpaca that the wool came from. So cute! I paid $150 for three balls of that stuff (sold by weight but I have no idea how much any more)... Oh to be young and foolish again. When you're spending money for a school project it somehow seems justifiable. True story; sometimes when I feel guilty about buying scads of magazines, I tell myself it's for fashion research. Whatever helps me sleep at night, right?
