sorry about the terrible picture, but this being the first real snow, i absolutely had to have my picture taken in the midst of the flurries. i have realized that my hunter wellies make the best snow boots, mostly with the amazing fleece linings i bought for them. an all-around fabulous purchase. i was not willing to let the cold wet weather ruin my outfit plans for the night. i love this dark purple jersey dress. (i know i said no jersey for awhile, but i just cannot help myself.) the dress is a really thick knit, so paired with wool tights it was great for a snowy evening out. the dress is kind of loose fitting, so i wanted to wear the blazer and belt to bring it in at the waist. the overall effect was a nice full skirt that was wonderful for twirling and dancing at the ryan montbleau show.
