I’ll admit it—sometimes in winter, I sacrifice beauty for comfort. It’s cold, alright! Sometimes, those super cute sweaters and wool skirts just don’t protect you from feeling chilled to the bone. However, I was able to compromise with a pair of fashionable trousers that make you feel like they’re just as cozy as your bed, but ready to hit the town! Besides the ultra-comfortable feel, the fun racing stripe on the side is going to make you want to live life in the fast lane.

After the big rush of wedding season dies down, bridesmaids are wondering to themselves, “What the heck am I going to do with the dress I wore only once and paid X amount for?” Well, me too girl. Staring into my closet at long formal gowns that aren’t quite right for Mardi Gras balls but I can’t get rid of because I paid so much for it can drive me crazy. If you’re lucky, the bride will pick a dress that doesn’t scream “I was a bridesmaid!” and rather “Maybe this is a bridesmaid’s dress but maybe not?!?”. In my case, that was the situation, but I was still left wondering how can I get more usage out of this dress? If you’re wondering the same thing, don’t worry. I’ve got a solution!

I’ve really found myself ignoring the neutral hues of France and breaking out all my colors. Sure, maybe that screams that I’m not from here (and I’m not!). Winter white could be a break against the norm, but I want more than that! Bright colors are really what’s needed here. It’s perfect for those chilly days where I can feel the cold to my bones and I just want some sun! Why not create the warmth with fun, pretty shades? I could live with an Easter palette all year long with lots of pastel hues. Purples, pinks, greens and even oranges make me feel the happiest as spring is my favorite season. I’m deciding to get a head start on spring this year by starting my winter pastels now!

Mini skirts! It’s all I see in the stores and the magazines. It’s like 2004 decided to come back (did you know Von Dutch is gaining traction again? OMG!) and mini skirts jumped right back to the top of our Christmas lists. I’m not much of a mini-skirt wearer, as you can see I haven’t worn one yet on this blog. I’m all about trying out new fads, though, so I figured that I should take a chance with this one. The trouble is: what mini skirt to pick? They’re in every material/fabric under the sun from tweed to vinyl to leather to wool. I figured if I’m going to wear a mini skirt that I better do it big, so I chose a totally “sound” purchase: a black vinyl miniskirt.

When I started babysitting a two and four year old last year, I noticed the eldest was wearing corduroy pants. Hmph, I thought, corduroy must be coming back in. Something I remember wearing fondly when I was about the same age as the child who now wore them, had literally disappeared from my youth. When I told a friend about this discovery, she argued that corduroy was *always* in style with children’s clothes, but I didn’t believe that. Where was corduroy for that period of 10-20 years of my life? Well, I should have held my tongue because a quick trip to Uniqlo and an observance among Parisian street style made me realize that corduroy is indeed back, and this time it ain’t just a children’s book.
