Where's the Snow?


Since Thursday the weather forecast has been filled with breathless anticipation of snowfall and every commercial break has had a promo about preparing for snow. About 11 pm last night there was giddy live coverage of a few flakes falling over at Mt. Scott, one of the higher elevations in the city. They even zoomed in to show that a piece of wood actually had some white cover of unmelted snow. I went to sleep before any snow fell in my neighborhood and checking out the window this morning, whatever snow that may have fallen is all melted away. Coming from Minnesota, I always am entertained by local weather coverage of snow, but this was the ultimate in much ado about nothing.


Besides, if I want snow, I can just hop around the grid and find some snow. In fact, I just took a peak at French travel blogger Karro Lean’s Winter Collection post and hopped on over to Y&R to snap some pics. The store had moved, but they left a landmark. Now, none of my outfit from today’s post comes from Y&R, but being drawn to their store to shoot a few pictures, I naturally went shopping and you can see the results in Gidge’s post from yesterday and another that is coming. For this, though, I was bundled up and ready for snow! As you can see, I have a fabulous thermal knit ribbed sweater from SAKIDE and over that a huge, thick, warm cable-knit sweater poncho from Baiastice. I was loaded for bear, as they say.


Loaded for bear? I should watch my metaphors, because Y&R had two adorable bears. They were very friendly and posed quietly while I snapped a few shots. And isn’t that herringbone tweed skirt from Chantkare amazing! I was comfy, cozy even while flirting with bears.


I added this lovely jewelry from WTG by Tosy Xue and an updo from Truth. Frankly, I debated whether to wear that particular updo as it has become rather ubiquitous lately, but you know what. Generally speaking, when something begins appearing everywhere, it’s because it’s good and this is a great hairdo. There’s a few loose, strands of flexi that move when you walk, but most of the hair is pinned perfectly into place. My makeup is from Blush, the Rock Star option. Only with autotune.

One thought on “Where's the Snow?

    I miss the days of updos sometimes…though I’m sure the ozone layer doesn’t, at least when it comes to Aqua Net.

    Nice piece overall, and I love the cabled pattern on the poncho especially. I suspect it’s hard to get a detail like that to not “stretch,” like some patterns do. As for what you say about the snow, I understand completely. I come from Michigan, and I have to stare at the attitude here in Alabama; it seems that if they see a single flake, they close the schools. Of course, the drivers here don’t know what to do on an icy road, so it may be just as well. (Shrug)
