January Snow

As promised, here are a few photos of the snowfall we got last week. We all like to say it never snows here, but it actually does at some point pretty much every winter. It's a novelty for a day or two, and then everyone gets tired of it and is ready for it to melt away. Which it has by now, and most, if not all of it, is gone. But it was pretty while it lasted.

I love wild rose hips -- they're so neat looking, and the actual roses when in bloom are beautiful!

Yes, it was definitely pretty while it lasted -- but I think I'm more or less ready for spring.

Faux Fur & Red Lips

This is what I wore on Saturday. I absolutely love these cropped jeans, I can't wait 'til it gets a bit warmer out so I can wear them more often. I think they're just a great, retro style, and so versatile. They can be styled in so many ways, I love it.

I bought my coat with faux fur trim at a thrift shop last autumn, but I've sadly not gotten a lot of wear out of it due to it having been freezing out and the coat having slightly short sleeves. Perhaps I need to find a pair of long gloves to wear with it so I can wear it more often.

Speaking of the cold, it snowed a bunch last week -- I took a few photos and will post them soon!

I bought the white shirt I'm wearing here at a thrift shop, the coat is also from a thrift shop, as mentioned above. I bought the jeans from Forever 21's online shop, as well as my metallic silver nail polish. The heels are a pair I've had for ages that I bought from Suzy Shier. And the little ring on my right hand is from a thrift shop.

Knitted Tights and a Velvet Blazer

I took these photos a week and half or so ago, I've been meaning to post them but kept getting busy doing other things. They're a little '60s and Edie Sedgwick inspired, but as you can probably tell, not overly so.

I used our (currently very messy) attic as the place to shoot the photos because I thought the messiness of it might make for an interesting background. I think it did -- but that's about all that's good about having such a cluttered space!
