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.

  1. That shirt and that skirt are simply perfect together!~
    That coat is also really pretty, I understand why you've been drooling over their catologue.
