Hey There, Winter!

hello winter!

See me wavin'? This is how I say hi to winter. Or, more accurately, how I look like a chump in front of my camera.

Still, it's an opportunity to show you my well-worn, favourite coat, bought on eBay when I was seventeen or eighteen. It's quilted on the inside, is super warm, and makes me feel like a cross between Janis Joplin and Santa Claus. Which is really not a bad place to be:

winter - flashing me polka-dots
Flashing my polka-dots. Ooh la la!

Wearing:

• Best coat ever. 1960's velvet and faux-fur.
• Spotty flocked dress, 1960's, from a vintage fair.
• Black supermarket tights.
• Quilted ballet flats. Because they're painful and I'm a masochist.

Also, because I want to be sappy and embarrassing like someone's drunk Great-Aunt Mildred--

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PINK!!!!

Never let it be said that I don't broadcast your descent into old age on the internets :P

I immediately get Santa Claus in my mind when I saw only the first picture. I like that black/white polka dotted dress.
