Cozy Winter

In the winter most people tend to wear darker colors and I am sure you have noticed that I am the complete opposite of that! Usually when I am shopping in the winter and I see something really cute I find that it only comes in black and I wish it came in a fun color.  I was so excited when I saw this adorable purple faux fur bolero that was part of the L'Wren Scott collection from Banana Republic.  The price was a little high at full price but I waited paitently, checking the price all the time and hoped it would go on sale!  Finally it became mine and I did a little happy dance as it was more than 50% off! I love that it is a cropped length making it fit my petite frame wonderfully. Adding a little faux fur to any outfit in the colder weather is a great way to stay warm and chic!

You know my outfit is never complete without a cute little handbag and my Painter's Palette Bag from Mary Frances is perfect!

 

 

I am so happy that for my Giveaway from Vedette Shapewear this month that Vedette allowed me to draw 3 winners! So very kind of them!

 

The 3 Winners for this month are: Sarah Eastman, Marisa Canela, and Kathleen Harper!

 

Congratulations to the Winners!  Don't worry if you didn't win this time as I will be having another Vedette Shapewear Giveaway in just a few weeks! Stay tuned for more details!

Gorgeous, love the dress and bolero, stunning colours together. I think you're right....most people wear lots of dark colours in the winter...I used to do that too & it just made me feel so depressed, everything outside is already gray & it's worse wearing the dark colours, but this year I have stuck to colours and I've really haven't been as down about it being so gray out, the colours have made it feel like a tropical kind of winter. And I've preferred the colours. I hope you have a great week doll x

It's funny because I have noticed I do tend to gravitate towards my dark neutrals in the winter but your blog has definitely inspired me to go brighter this season. LOVING this color palette - I would never have thought to pair marigold and magenta but you've proven it to be a chic and stunning combination!
February 10, 2014 9:45 PM By Deborah
This is such a refreshing color combo! I love how you so effortlessly combined these two hues and created a fabulous ensemble! Your chunky necklace is gorgeous and that purse of yours! Ahh! You always find the most unique pieces! And I'm just like you - i love wearing fun colors (even in the winter)! <3 katsfashionfix.blogspot.com

What glorious colour against the white backdrop of winter. A great sight during this winter from hell. Those shoes and tights kill me. BTW…when you comment on my blog I get the comment but it puts it in the spam folder for some stupid reason. So don't worry if it looks like it disappears…I get them and publish them later once I go into the spam folder. I don't know why it chooses certain people to do that with, but you're one of them. Sorry about that! bisous Suzanne

I can tell your love for happy colors, even during winter time! As the majority of people, I'm totally the opposite I always tend to go for darker colors. However, I wish I was like you it's so much funny to wear bright colors especially during winter time! I adore your big statement necklace! It really captured my attention and it's lovely! Have a lovely week Rebecca x
