A Plaid Skirt and a Poodle

I love Victorian Trading Co. fashion and home decor, but I haven't purchased anything.  I've just spent the last five years or so, sighing and occasionally drooling over their catalogs.  This year, I was given this lovely tweed corset coat as a Christmas gift and it has been so very nice.  Four years ago, before the blog life, I bought a knee length gray wool coat and it kept me warm through all those long winters of walking everywhere in Japan.  This year, about two weeks before Christmas, I got my scarf stuck in the zipper of the coats and, since I was particularly tired and frustrated at the end of a very long day, I yanked and pulled on the scarf and zipper until I irreparably broke the zipper and the teeth on that coat.  The scarf came out unharmed but forever associated with the loss of my beloved coat.  It's sunny, chilly day, so I decided to pull the poodle sweater off the shelf and my very first plaid skirt from the beginning of my blogging to wear on a little walk in the woods at sunset.  The days are still short and I can't stay out too long, but a nice quiet stroll is just what I need today.

A Peplum Print

I picked up this beauty from EShakti last year.  I've waited so long to do photos because most of my photo spots are outdoors and I didn't want this lovely green dress to get lost in the foliage.  Sadly, I think this dress is now sold out, but they have so many other great dresses that I'm devoting two posts to their new spring collection.

Blueberry Gingham

Now that Valentine's day has come and gone and we're no longer seeing red, I thought it was time to mix things up with a little blue.  There's something about gingham that always makes me thing summer time and picnics even if, like today, summertime is still a million miles away.  It's chilly out here at the park, and I'm not exactly dressed for hiking.  Oh well, I can still stroll around on the paved paths with my favorite fella.

Blue Gingham Shirt from Hodoyi
Blue Charter School Cardigan and blue Heels from ModCloth
